Judicial Watch says Ineligibility Clause of Constitution Prohibits Clinton Appointment
According to the Ineligibility Clause of the United States Constitution, no member of Congress can be appointed to an office that has benefited from a salary increase during the time that Senator or Representative served in Congress. A January 2008 Executive Order signed by President Bush during Hillary Clinton’s current Senate term increased the salary for Secretary of State, thereby rendering Senator Clinton ineligible for the position.
Which party controls both legislative chambers?
Whose Cabinet is presently being filled with former Clinton administration officials?
Wasn’t Hillary’s appointment as Secretary of State part of the deal?
You tell me what the outcome of this will be.
