[Ed. – Help us ‘preserve the Constitution’? How do they figure?]
Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer are reaching out to Republicans in a bipartisan effort in the act of preserving the Constitution with Trump’s latest move to redirect funds without asking the House of Representatives.
President Trump said that this move would be lost in the court system in the early going, but hopefully, when it gets to the Supreme Court, it will pass.
“This is plainly a power grab by a disappointed President, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process.”
“Just as both parties honored our oath to protect the American people by passing the conference committee bill, the Congress on a bipartisan basis must honor the Constitution by defending our system of checks and balances,” they said. “The President is not above the law. The Congress cannot let the President shred the Constitution.”
