Speaker Paul Ryan is under fire for insinuating he would sue President Trump…
According to The Hill:
“Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is indicating a willingness to sue Donald Trump if he tries to ban Muslims from entering the United States as president.
In an interview with The Huffington Post published Friday, Ryan didn’t rule out suing a Republican president over executive overreach.
“I would sue any president that exceeds his or her powers,” he said.
Still, Ryan didn’t say directly whether he thought Trump enacting a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. would exceed the limits of presidential authority.
“That’s a legal question that there’s a good debate about,” Ryan said, referring to the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act.”
