George Washington University legal scholar Jonathan Turley “has agreed to represent House Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans in their lawsuit against President Obama,” NBC News reports. Democrats dismissed the threat of Speaker of the House John Boehner filing a lawsuit as just a political stunt to get Republican voters fired up for the 2014 midterms. After months of nothing from Boehner, it looks like he might be serious after all.
Turley’s announcement comes after other lawyers ultimately declined to represent the House Republicans — allegedly due to political pressure at their big law firms. Turley also discloses that he voted for Obama in 2008.
