On Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” left-leaning George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley criticized President Barack Obama’s “flagrantly unconstitutional” National Labor Relations Board recess appointments, which were struck down unanimously by the Supreme Court earlier in the day.
Turley said they were an example of the “serial violation” of the separation of powers by Obama. He argued that the Supreme Court made “the right decision” by striking down the appointments and said that he was “astonished that the Obama administration litigated this case.”
Turley added that the ruling means that the president again violated the separation of powers, and this is becoming something of a serial violation for the president,” and was a “shot across the bow” in many areas of presidential power.
