Procedural changes impede the chamber's traditional deliberative function
Topic - Miguel Estrada
Senate Republicans on Tuesday turned to Miguel Estrada, a man whom Democrats denied a presidential appointment in 2003, to be their lawyer as they fight to overturn some of President Obama's own appointments.
Escalating a simmering constitutional feud, Senate Republicans on Tuesday said they're joining a lawsuit against President Obama's January recess appointments, which were made even as Senate Republicans said they were still in session.
A lawyer for Conrad Black said he expects the former media magnate to walk free on bond Wednesday from the Florida prison where he has been serving a 6½-year sentence for defrauding investors.
Mr. Estrada said the Federal Bureau of Prisons issued Black an ID that will allow him to fly to Chicago.
"I'm hoping it happens today. It should happen today. It's up to the facility to process the court order," Mr. Estrada said.
