Corker Applauds Unanimous Supreme Court Ruling on Unconstitutional Obama Appointments

Statement

U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today applauded the Supreme Court's unanimous ruling that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate's advice and consent authority in making so-called "recess" appointments in 2012.

"This result is a huge victory for all who believe in separation of powers and the rule of law," said Corker.

In November 2013, Corker and 44 of his Senate colleagues filed an amicus brief in this case (NLRB v. Noel Canning), a challenge to the constitutionality of President Obama's so-called "recess" appointments.
