Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-IA) praised the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that day which ruled unanimously that President Obama exceeded his constitutional authority in 2012 when he filled high-level executive branch vacancies without Senate confirmation. In the first-ever case involving the Constitution’s recess appointments clause, the justices said that the Senate was not in formal recess when the president appointed members to the National Labor Relations Board. Senator Grassley said he was thankful that the Supreme Court had “reined in this kind of lawlessness on the part of this administration.” close
