Obama didn't break any laws, the GOP can take full responsibility for this. This man is the president of the United States, give him his staff, he has every right to have whomever he wishes. This pathetic childs play by the GOP to deny our commander and chief an opportunity to appoint who he feels necessary just sickens me. I can promise you that Obama has a whole team of lawyers and advisers. If they have ANY doubt this would be a constitutional violation, there is just no way he would pull this 1 year out from elections. Case closed. Still no scandal GOP, sorry, keep trying.
