Barack Obama John Boehner

Presidential abuse of power suit

25 Jun, 2014

Citing alleged abuse of executive power, House Speaker John Boehner announces he will file a lawsuit against Obama. The suit needs formal approval by a group of House leaders.  Once that step is complete, the suit is expected to be filed in a few weeks. The plaintiff will be the House of Representatives.

This is not about impeachment — it’s about him faithfully executing the laws of this country. My view is the president has not faithfully executed the laws. What we have seen clearly over the last five years is an effort to erode the power of the Legislative Branch.
