    Congress failed to stop President Trump’s border emergency wall-building campaign through the legislative process, so now Democrats are turning to the courts.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that the House will file a lawsuit arguing Mr. Trump is breaking the law by spending money in a way Congress doesn’t want.

    “The president’s action clearly violates the Appropriations Clause by stealing from appropriated funds, an action that was not authorized by constitutional or statutory authority,” she said in a statement announcing the move.

    Her move is similar to one taken by Republicans when they controlled the House and President Barack Obama was in office, and he spent money on an Obamacare program despite Congress zeroing out that funding in its own spending bills.

    Funny how the article tries to say Republican sued Obama for doing it and mistakenly points out that
    Democrats were ok with it then.

    Not the same. Obama did it against established law. Trump is using 10USCode284 and 10USCode2808. Congress gave Presidents permission decades ago.

    I had no idea that the Democrats hated this nation enough to pull all of this crap.

    And don't these asshats in Congress have some work to do versus just creating all of these diversions and obstruction against the guy we put there?

    We know their ultimate strategy. If team Trump is busy with this garbage they won't have time to investigate the Democrat crimes.

    It is hard to believe. I used to question the democrat's loyalty to our nation, but now there is no question, the majority of them hate this country.
    That is a pathetic bunch.
