Yeah I'm fairly certain if the Federation Council signs off on it they can make it legal being they... make the law. Even Picard stopped arguing the legality of it after Dougherty threw the Council card at him and just stuck with the morality of it.
And then they changed their minds at the end after a quick call from Riker, doesn't seem to be a very concrete law, especially since Dougherty was pretty vague. And Picard did not give up on the legality of it thats why he had Riker go bitch at them.
Besides just becuase the government says so is a piss poor excuse that ignores the possibility that they can actually do something illegal.
Thats kind of why there is a process for removing them from office if they do something illegal.
