House GOP to Stage Mock Trial

National Journal: "In an unlikely setting for political theater--the cramped meeting room of the House Rules Committee--lawyers for and against Speaker John Boehner's proposed lawsuit against President Obama will stage a kind of mock trial Wednesday to expound upon the plan's possibilities and pitfalls."

"Although the testimony will be equally divided between the pros and the cons, the outcome is inevitable. With a 9-4 majority on the Rules Committee, Republicans are certain to follow their leader's suggestion and write a resolution for the full House to consider calling for litigation against the president."
