House Hearing on Republican Lawsuit Against Uber-Presidency

This morning the House Rules Committee is holding a committee on the authorization of litigation by the House of Representatives challenging the president’s unilateral actions.

The hearing began at 10 am Eastern and is streaming live on C-Span.

Several of the expert witnesses who testified before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on “the president’s constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws” back in December have returned to Capitol Hill for today’s hearing: Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University Law School, Elizabeth Price Foley, Professor of Law, Florida International University College of Law,  Simon Lazarus, Senior Counsel, Constitutional Accountability Center, and Walter Dellinger III, Partner, O’Melveny & Meyers LLP.

Professors Turley and Foley support the litigation while Lazarus and Dellinger oppose.
