Former Trump Aides Sue Biden After He ‘Illegally’ Fired Them

Former Trump spokesman Sean Spicer and budget chief Russ Vought are suing President Joe Biden for firing them from military boards. The two former Trump aides allege Biden’s overt power play in firing them and forcing out other Trump appointees is illegal and the White House does not have any authority over the boards.

Earlier in September, Joe Biden issued curt letters to a number of Trump-appointed individuals on various boards created by Congress saying they must resign or be fired. The board’s members leave only when their three-year term is up, they resign, or they die.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Spicer, a captain in the U.S. Naval Reserves, had only three months left to serve on the Board of Visitors to the U.S. Naval Academy, so targeting him was especially petty. Vought was a more recent appointee.

In an effort to shame the Trump allies off the boards, White House press secretary Jen Psaki questioned the qualifications and values of Spicer and the former Trump aides, an unusual assault on her predecessors that Spicer said smeared their military and government service.

Gene Hamilton, America First Legal’s vice president and general counsel, said, “For a president who has pledged to unify the country, terminating two highly qualified individuals from serving on this board instead of focusing on the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left Americans stranded, is clearly an attempt to distract the American people. The administration is clearly trying to avoid the oversight that Congress set out to achieve.”

He also called Spicer and Vought patriots and added, “President Biden’s threatened dismissal of them from the purely advisory Board of Visitors — an entity that exercises no executive power whatsoever — violates the law. Our clients have every right to serve every single day remaining in their terms. But even if the Biden administration prevails in its arguments, President Biden has perhaps unwittingly created a precedent that will be followed by all future administrations.”

The suit was filed on behalf of Spicer and Vought by America First Legal.

In a statement from America First Legal slammed Biden’s unprecedented move. “This illegal partisan power-grab is just another example of the Biden administration breaking longstanding bipartisan norms and traditions,” the firm said.

You are so correct on that. If there was equal justice, most Democrats would be charged with a crime. Sick of hearing the Dems saying: No One Is Above the LAW!!!

I totally agree! People can only do so much, but if they do evil, God can literally blow them off this earth. Similar to what He did to Sodom and Gomorrah. God gives everyone a chance to repent….up to a point. When they step over the line with God, these sinners are no longer able to be saved. Their destination: HELL!

So true, God is patient for a long time giving people a chance to change their ways, repent, and do whats right, but his wrath eventually comes to destroy evil. 2nd Peter 2: 6 and 7 “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked.” The filthy manner of living and lifestyle of the wicked, which means, (BEHAVIOR.)

The only reason democrats will not be held accountable for anything is the spineless republicans that are afraid of the democrats shadow, they shake in their shoes and pee in their pants when a democrat says anything to them. Until Republicans fire that worthless weasel McConnell with someone that has a spine, that will stand up to the democrats.

Cheating doesn’t count. 1. Arizona Maricopa Supervisor has admitted the election was fraud. A few of the elected officials were afraid they really didn’t win so started pushing against the audit. The audit is supposed to be released tomorrow. 2. 240 persons were caught on video tape shoving backpacks full of mail into the extra ballot boxes. This was done REPEATEDLY. They didn’t think anyone would check the cameras set up to watch the boxes. They made several trips. It wasn’t hard to identify the rats. 3. “county clerk submits report that colorado secretary of state and dominion destroyed election data” Smart young lady, she did a backup of the info. So Messy Hessy your HATE for Trump just makes we Americans push harder for him. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Google “Nazi Saboteurs and George Dasch”. The article describes the landing of eight Nazi saboteurs in New York and Florida.

Fortunately, this was before the FBI became a corrupt arm of the Demotraitor party, and the Nazis were all apprehended before any saboteur committed a single act of sabotage. Six were tried and sentenced to death before their execution a few days later. The remaining two were jailed.

What consequences will be born by the saboteurs in the Biden administration, including Biden himself, the fake media, and the tech social censorship monopolies for the immense damage they have loosed on the nation?

Biden certainly deserves whatever he gets as a result of his own stupidity! He had no right to try to remove Sean Spicer and Russ Vought from their military boards! As well, Jen Psaki incriminated herself by suggesting the qualifications and values of Spicer and Vought were an unusual assault. For Biden to terminate these two qualified individuals leaves him in the position of acute stupidity!

A President has the right to have people in place who support him.
That is why it is called the Executive Branch.
