In his ‘complaint‘ to the FBI, Robert ‘argues’ that
Violation of the Constitution
The ruling against the state of Arizona by Judge Susan Bolton concerning its new immigration law is illegal. “In all cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State may be Party, the supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction.” The way this reads to me is a law suit against any State must be heard by the Supreme Court
He has probably tried to parse our Constitution
Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says:”In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction.”
Which says nothing about original jurisdiction being exclusive.
U.S. Code › Title 28 › Part IV › Chapter 81 › § 1251 28 U.S. Code § 1251 – Original jurisdiction
(a) The Supreme Court shall have original and exclusive jurisdiction of all controversies between two or more States.
(b) The Supreme Court shall have original but not exclusive jurisdiction of:(1) All actions or proceedings to which ambassadors, other public ministers, consuls, or vice consuls of foreign states are parties;(2) All controversies between the United States and a State;(3) All actions or proceedings by a State against the citizens of another State or against aliens.
How hard is it to check the US Code?…
And this issue was settled by the first Congress in 1789, just in case our friend wants to argue that somehow the courts have undermined our Constitution here. Congress divided original jurisdiction into exclusive and non-exclusive jurisdiction.
What a little bit of understanding of the history of our Nation could do for one’s arguments…
Furthermore, the FBI does not investigate these issues. If you believe that a court lacked jurisdiction, you raise the issue on appeal, assuming that it was properly raised in the original case.
Basic stuff really. Anyone could have researched this in less than 5 minutes of searching using Google.
The ‘complaint’ itself is quite hilarious as it really provides few examples of crimes which the FBI would investigate. Such as the complaint that socialist policies are unfair and that President Obama has been living a life of luxury. I guess Robert does not believe that this President deserves the same benefits that previous Presidents have enjoyed. I wonder why…
