ACLJ: President Obama Violates Constitution with "Recess" Appointments | American Center for Law and Justice

1325804618000

(Washington, DC) - The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, said today President Obama has violated the U.S. Constitution by by-passing Congress and moving forward in making a number of appointments.

"This is a brazen, unprecedented power grab by President Obama," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "While the President is certainly permitted to make appointments when the Senate is in recess, these appointments clearly violate the Constitution because they have been made even though the Senate has not recessed. President Obama knows that. Instead of abiding by the Constitution, he's plunging forward - ignoring the separation of powers - in an arrogant and unconstitutional manner. We're examining all possible legal options concerning this issue."

The ACLJ will launch a national petition campaign tomorrow urging the President to abide by the Constitution - to stop unconstitutional appointments - and to retract those flawed appointments that have just occurred. You can read more about this issue in ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow's blog which is posted here.

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, is based in Washington, D.C. and is online at www.aclj.org.
