BREAKING: Boehner Sues Obama For Abuse Of Power

According to a Fox News report, House Speaker John Boehner is preparing a lawsuit against Barack Obama alleging he has abused his power as the nation’s chief executive. To be clear, the GOP leader said his aim is not to impeach the president as some in his party have recommended.

“This is not about impeachment,” he confirmed; “it’s about him faithfully executing the laws of this country.”

Obama’s frequent use of executive orders to achieve his political goals will reportedly be the focus of the lawsuit, which Boehner has hinted at filing over the past several days. On Wednesday, he confirmed he has decided to move ahead with the proposal.

If ultimately filed, the named plaintiff in the case would be the U.S. House of Representatives.

At this point, the action must still be approved by House leadership. If it is, Fox reports the suit would likely be filed within a few weeks.

Democrats in the House have already spoken out against the plan. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi offered her take, suggesting Boehner’s pursuit of a lawsuit against Obama is childish, adding that Republicans in the House are using this as a way to cover up their inaction in other matters.

“They are doing nothing here so they have to give some aura of activity,” she maintained.

Boehner has received support from many Twitter users who believe such action is long overdue.

As of Tuesday evening, the White House has not responded to the pending legal action.

  4. It is about time Congress exercised it authority. Now lets hope he goes through with it then follow it up with impeachment!

  5. Why do our elected officials have no backbone when it comes to impeaching Obama? Even the Democrats should be able to see that executive orders are not the ways laws were intended to be passed.

  6. You have our support. Sue and Impeach him now!
