Cession is defined as "the formal giving up of rights, property, or territory of a state".

Without a Constitutional Amendment allowing Washington D.C. to be both a state and a ten mile square federal district that is the seat of the federal government of the United States, I don't see D.C. statehood complying with article 1, section 8, clause 17 of our Constitution.
This whole thing should have been DOA.
