    Thank you for admitting you did not read into the topic, that should help people understand the uninformed posts you have been making.

    Are we ever "technically" in recess and who changed those rules ?
    "The Recess" occurs at the end of one session of Congress and before the new session reconvenes. That is when most recesses occur. Or when Congress adjourns and declares that it is in recess. The Obama administration declared Congress to be in recess, when it was not. If that was the case, the President would be able to make appointments whenever they went to lunch. Clearly, that is not a recess.

    So do you know the last time the Senate was "officially" in recess, because I don't.
    The Senate GOP now uses the recess like all of their other filibusters, and refuse to allow the recess to be "official, on McConnell's technicalities .

    You could look it up?

    The senate decides when they recess, not Obama.

    McConnell and the GOP decided it wasn't in recess, not the Senate. They should be impeached for being in contempt of an honored institution by turning it into a sham.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Silly.

    Breyer asked the SG if he thinks the actions by anyone in the senate were unconstitutional, and the SG of course said no.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Justices skeptical of Obama’s recess appointment claim[W:88]Just a reminder here, personal comments and zero content posts should be avoided. Stick to the topic please.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I was just interested in the topic and so too were the others. I think Clinton was a good president and think the Republicans tried to railroad him out of office. Now if my life had been different those 10 years I spent in Southeast Asia, perhaps I would have looked upon his escapes different. But when one has visited the Cellar Bar in Bangkok and Madam Lulu's in Vientiane and partook of the local cuisine, I do not think I am one to condemn him over a simple BJ in the White House.

    It was plain stupid on his part, it showed a total lack of common sense and he should have known better. As for gun control, I never got into that as hot and heavy as I did this. But stay tuned, the time will probably come.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

To most Americans it wasn't.

    An attempt to over turn an election and throw a sitting president is very serious stuff. Not only do you have to have a legal, constitutional reason for doing it, the American people must understand the basis for it. In the end, it was decided Clinton's crime of perjury was not enough to over turn an election. It didn't meet the constitutional requirements of high crimes. It is that simple.
    In that then I would have to ask, what does? I mean if a President can lie to a Federal Judge, and it is, in your words here, not enough of a high crime to remove him from office, I'd say that Clinton, and his supporters accomplished more than just getting through that scandal, they succeeded in circumventing the Constitution, and weakening it. Good Job.
