PRLog (Press Release) - Aug 10, 2012 -
Fox & Friends Weekend, a news magazine program on Fox News Channel, plans to present a discussion on the latest power grab by President Barack Obama. At issue is the constitutionally mandated separation of powers between the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government. David Rivkin, the constitutional attorney who represented the 26 states in the historic ObamaCare lawsuit, is scheduled to appear in the last hour of the program on Saturday, August 11.
Author of a recent Wall Street Journal article on the president's disregard for welfare, immigration, and education laws passed by Congress, Rivkin stated, "Mr. Obama has now made clear that he won't respect these basic constitutional limits on his power."
Rivkin, a Washington attorney and partner in the firm Baker Hostetler LLP, has a history of analyzing the actions of presidents, legislatures, and the judiciary against the U.S. Constitution. On January 4, 2012, President Obama made "recess" appointments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Labor Relations Board. At the time of the appointments, the Senate was holding a series of "pro forma" sessions. While the U.S. Department of Justice claimed that the President has the authority to make these appointments, in essence, to decide for himself when Congress is in session, David Rivkin and other constitutional law experts disagreed.
