Specter Threatens to Sue Bush

By |

Republican Arlen Specter is threatening to give the Senate the power to sue the president over his use of "signing statements" to ignore laws passed by Congress, most notoriously the McCain anti-torture amendment.

Said Specter:

There's a real issue here as to whether the president may, in effect, cherry-pick the provisions he likes, excluding the provisions he doesn't like. The president has the option under the Constitution to veto or not.
