Andrew Napolitano: Congress is Unconscionably Silent on Obama's Constitutional Crimes


President Obama
White House

In President Obama, charges Andrew Napolitano, we have a president whose personal interferences in the enforcement of federal laws reveal his view that he can rewrite them and even nullify them. Presidential law writing violates the presidential oath of office, steals power from Congress, disrespects an equal branch of the government and, when unchecked, accumulates such power in the executive branch that it effectively transforms the president into a menacing tyrant who rejects his constitutional obligations and limitations. And while all of this is going on, Congress largely sits as a potted plant.
