President Barack Obama says he’s being “forced out” of the Oval Office, not quitting, as he faces the end of his presidency.
If it were not for the the House forcing pro-forma sessions rather than going into Summer recess back on August 4th, and also not approving a Senate recess … to avoid recess SOCTUS appointments, things would already be much different.
We would be talking about Obama’s recess appointment of a SCOTUS Justice, his executive order canceling the elections, the SCOTUS decision that found it constitutional, and we would all be asking why the military and police were backing his coup.
So yes … Obama is being “Forced Out” … and good riddance.
Update: Here is an article from The Hill that describes the process in more detail.
“Article 1, Section 5 of the Constitution says neither the House nor the Senate can be in recess without the consent of the other chamber.
Therefore, the House has essentially refused to give the Senate consent to go on recess this August. But in doing so, the House also cannot adjourn.”
