Pending Presidential Lawsuit Led by House Speaker Boehner

Updated: Saturday, June 28 2014, 05:58 PM CDT

It isn't just the supreme court scrutinizing the President.

There's also a potential lawsuit against President Obama for misusing his executive powers.

The republican suit, led by house speaker John Boehner alleges the President is unconstitutionally side-stepping the legislative branch.

But not everyone in congress has taken issue with the President's actions.

Senator Dick Durbin says congress should have taken action in the first place.

"Speaker John Boehner has had a bi-partisan immigration bill sent to him by the Senate one year ago. He has never called it for a vote. So before he starts criticizing the President for using his power, why doesn't the Speaker use his authority to start solving some of the problems we face in this country."

The lawsuit has yet to be filed, but Boehner says the President overstepped executive action on healthcare, foreign policy, education and energy. Boehner also says he is serious about moving forward with it.
