"Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) responded to the news that another Boehner lawyer has quit, “Speaker Boehner cannot find a single lawyer in the entire country – even at $500 dollars an hour in taxpayer money – to file a lawsuit that is so totally devoid of any legal merit.”
The lawsuit is so bogus that House Republicans can’t find decent legal representation for $500 an hour. There are lots of terrible lawyers who would be willing to file the lawsuit for that kind of money, but no law firm who values their reputation will touch it.
Any private law firm that would represent the House Republicans would be destroying their credibility. The lawsuit against the president has absolutely no legal merit, and Republicans may not be able to find a court that is willing to hear it. Even if House Republicans can find a court willing to hear it, the lawsuit is expected to be laughed out of court.
Instead of wasting taxpayer money on an outside firm, House Republicans will waste the time of those who are being paid by the taxpayers by forcing them to work on their lawsuit against President Obama.
The reason Boehner’s lawsuit hasn’t been filed is that he can’t find a law firm that is willing to take the case. Much like everything else that the House Republicans touch, Boehner’s lawsuit against Obama was full of talk, but completely lacking in action."
