AG Barr Defends Trump in Oval Office “Your Declaration of Border Emergency is CLEARLY AUTHORIZED”
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 3/15/19 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/15/2019 2:45:08 PM PDT by cotton1706

On Friday Attorney General Bill Barr sided with President Trump. Barr said the president “absolutely has the right to declare a national emergency on the southern border there. He says the veto is the right thing to do. And the declaration will hold up in a court of law.

AG Bill Barr: Mr. President your declaration of an emergency on the southern border was clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedent… The humanitarian and security crisis that we currently have right now on the border is exactly the type of emergency that presidents are permitted to address.

Ann Coulter weighed in.

"CLEARLY LAWFUL" — Attorney General Bill Barr on border emergency declaration. But I'm sure constitutional scholars Rand Paul & Lisa Murkowski know better. https://t.co/rd9ojWlTVs — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) March 15, 2019

If it does have to wind its way through courts, how much time does something like that take?

Let’s hope it doesn’t.

What would be the first court to hear it and could that decision be contested by either side?

Dear Miss Coulter,

Sit down and shut up. We’ve had just about enough of your crap.

Have a nice day.

An injunction against a declaration of emergency is invalid

That’s good, right?

So how fast does this happen?

When can the money start being used?

Is that it? No more hurdles to cross?

I really don’t know so thanks ahead of time.

All the Rinos strutting about as literal Constitutional originalists, you’re wrong on this one. The power of the purse has been passed to the president for emergency declarations via long standing law. Thus the funding has been authorized by congress through that emergency powers act. If congress wants to reject the passed law, make a new law and get that passed and signed into place restricting the executive powers given to him by you.

It’s about time he said SOMETHING for the public.
I was starting to think we had another “Invisible AG”.
Still don’t really know, but this is a good start.

I despised Eric Holder’s world view, but the entire country always knew that he was always there, ready to support his president in word or deed. There was never any doubt. That is what Mr.Trump
needs.

I’ve heard of her. Read her articles and heard her speak.

Not impressed.

I can’t believe what I just heard on that video. The president should have French kissed that guy.

I saw the entire event and I so enjoyed watching President Trump veto the Republican traitors’ resolution against his authority to declare a national emergency.

It was not only great to hear Bill Barr give the green light to the President’s authority, it was absolutely amazing to watch him talk to the President with such genuine respect.

And the declaration will hold up in a court of law.

True, but it will not hold up in the Ninth Circus, which is not a court of law but a court of politics.

No, this is a case the USSC would allow to be fast tracked based on the President claiming it to be a national emergency and my guess is even if some lefty Judge issues an injunction it will be over and done by mid year.
