President Obama will elevate the controversy over his recess appointment powers to the highest level, with the National Labor Relations Board announcing Tuesday it will appeal to the Supreme Court a lower-court ruling that held his appointments to the board were illegal.
A court ruling that President Obama overstepped his constitutional authority by going around the Senate to name two appointees to the National Labor Relations Board could invalidate hundreds of the board's rulings, Sen. Bob Corker said Sunday.
Republican senators on Wednesday joined a lawsuit arguing President Obama violated the Constitution when he used his recess appointment powers earlier this year to fill several controversial posts.
