If a police officer lies in an application for a search and seizure warrant, what happens? Can the officer get in trouble and lose his job?

A:  A warrant to search and seize property is subject to the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution or a state equivalent.

Q: 

Is the executive branch the most powerful branch of our government?

A:  Best answer as selected by question asker. This is a matter of opinion. I would say it is because the President is by far the most famous politician in the country.  So he is the one who can do the most to decide what sorts of laws are going to be considered.  He can give speeches to try to persuade people and those speeches will be big news. But you can also argue that the legislative branch is stronger.  After all, they are the only branch that can actually pass laws.  The President could have talked about health care until he was blue in the face, but only Congress could actually pass the bill and Obama could not have just ordered the law to be...
