Yes, he's now facing a lawsuit over those illegal recess appointments. Maybe a few Republicans are finally finding their stones.

It's an important case that underscores the separation of powers. Senate Republicans will file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of recent recess appointments by President Obama - specifically to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Here's the problem. The president made those appointments while the Senate was in pro-forma session. The fact is the Senate was not in recess, and the president's so-called "recess" appointments represented a constitutional overreach.

.......... the Senate is part of a co-equal branch of government that is entitled to set its own rules, and the president simply can't step in and override them.
