Trump broke the law by using military money for border wall, appeals court rules
LA Times ^ | June 26, 2020 | Maura Dolan

A federal appeals court decided 2-1 Friday that the Trump administration violated the law when it used military funds to build a wall on the Mexican border.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the power of the purse belongs to Congress, and the administration lacked constitutional authority to transfer the military money. Two Democratic appointees were in the majority. A Trump appointee dissented.

What's the 9th Circus's batting average with SCOTUS? Isn't it something like .125?

The left is not going to let up until a vast majority cries “Uncle”. To believe that somehow being right is going to win over the rabid left and those they have convinced (or better yet, guilted) is delusional.

Interesting. Was it in their last approved budget? Oh wait, Congress doesn't actually write budgets anymore, they just pass resolutions to give the same amount as last time plus more without specifics. I'd say they've delegated that authority then.

Already-appropriated money can be redirected at the need of the executive. This is not seeking appropriation of new money.

This is probably the last hurrah of the leftist Ninth Circus before they finally get turned conservative by a new Trump appointee.

POTUS is making it more conservative. This is why his second term is vital. If Biden gets in it all gets turned back to the other direction.

Might have to be the next session. They finish up cases next week. Not sure what would happen between now and when the supremes take the case. Plus I’m sure some of the funds were spent already.

Isn't a border wall between nations, fundamentally a military fortification? It isn't a public works project.

What else can it be?

“Two Democratic appointees were in the majority. A Trump appointee dissented.”

Just remember, according to Roberts, judges are not political.

He didn’t “use” military money. He “redirected” it.

I think SCOTUS already ruled previously that it was OK to transfer.
As usual, Trump is following the law but the left doesn’t like it, so the find judges that don’t care about the law. Just their ideology.
