Boehner Says Obama Abused His Power, Plans to Sue

At a press conference on Wednesday, Speaker of the House John Boehner, announced that he would soon file a lawsuit against President Obama, for alleged abuse of executive power.

According to a Fox News report, Boehner did not release any strategic details at the meeting, but he did give a few reasons as to why he would move forward with the suit.

"This is not about impeachment -- it's about him faithfully executing the laws of this country," Boehner said. "My view is the president has not faithfully executed the laws…what we have seen clearly over the last five years is an effort to erode the power of the Legislative Branch."

Boehner sent a memo to House Republicans, in which he amplified his reasoning and asked for the party’s support.

If Boehner chooses to go forward with the lawsuit, it would have to be approved by the House of Representatives and a group of House leaders.
