A team of taxpayer-supported lawyers arguing on behalf of President Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office say not even the U.S. Supreme Court has any input into the question at this point, and such cases should be barred from the courts.
Obama and his lawyers in the justice department want to stop the eligibility trial
“The Constitution’s commitment to the Electoral College of the responsibility to select the president includes the authority to decide whether a presidential candidate is qualified for office,” said a brief filed by government lawyers in a California lawsuit over Obama’s eligibility under the Constitution’s demand for a “natural born citizen” in the White House.
That’s because, the brief states, “the examination of a candidate’s qualifications is an integral component of the electors’ decision-making process. The Constitution also provides that, after the Electoral College has voted, further review of a presidential candidate’s eligibility for office, to the extent such review is required, rests with Congress.”
The lawsuit has been brought on behalf of a number of plaintiffs alleging that Obama is not constitutionally eligible for office.
