Judicial Watch Statement on Boehner Resignation

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the resignation of House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-OH):

John Boehner’s willingness to fund rather than oppose Barack Obama’s lawlessness is a chief reason for his forced resignation from his position as speaker of the House.   It is no small issue that, during Boehner’s tenure, Judicial Watch is widely acknowledged to have been performing the oversight that is the job of Congress.  We’ve heard from many members of the House who are embarrassed that its committees and oversight have become a joke under Speaker Boehner.  Judicial Watch has had more success investigating the IRS, Benghazi, and Clinton email scandals than any House committee under Boehner’s direction.

And the House simply could not stand for John Boehner to allow the funding of the very things he told the American people that House leadership opposed.   Corruption in government grew under Speaker Boehner’s watch.

The House, Republicans and Democrats alike, should take the pending leadership change as an opportunity to restore the House of Representatives to its preeminent role as defined under the U.S. Constitution.  A reform and restoration agenda for the House should be the priority of any new speaker and leadership team.  It is time to commit to combatting government corruption; time to focus on effective and serious oversight and accountability of an out-of-control federal government; time to end the DC transparency crisis; and time to restore constitutional governance and the rule of law.  The elected despotism that the Founding Fathers warned about must end.
