President Trump has been working to get the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, citing that it isn’t good for the country. Now, a mysterious legal memo is cited in a lawsuit that shows former President Barack Obama may have actually entered into the agreement illegally.

A lawsuit filed on Monday shows that Barack Obama entered into the Paris climate agreement illegally with a legal memo that the Obama administration used to justify the deal. The lawsuit identifies that the Obama administration fought that it could sign the agreement without the approval of the Senate because of not saying “legally binding targets and timetables.” According to the lawsuit, this kind of justification is a misrepresentation of the law.

Chris Horner is a senior fellow working at the Competitive Enterprise Institute who explains that the memo demonstrates how the Obama administration entered into the Paris treaty unlawfully. In a press statement, he explains how the memo is both a major political as well as a legal scandal.

The lawsuit is currently requesting documents associated with the memo from the US State Department as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.

Horner, who sits on the Government Accountability & Oversight (GAO) board of directors, is responsible for filing the lawsuit on behalf of Energy Policy Advocates. The legal memo is cited as allegedly justifying the decision that Obama made to enter the climate deal. This deal compels the United States and 200 other countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions dramatically by 2025. Specifically, it identifies cutting emissions by 26% to 28%.

Any international deal involving adopting targets and timetables requires Senate approval, not simply those that are legally binding. Horner refers to a referendum that the Senate produced in 1992 following the Kyoto Protocol which was an international climate agreement that was designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the United States never ratified Kyoto.

In 2017, Pres. Donald Trump identified his intention for the United States to leave the agreement. Throughout his 2016 campaign, he promised to cancel the deal. However, his administration has been split on the issue. He has already issued a number of executive orders to roll back Obama-arrow global warming regulations.

Trump now has the ability to pull out of the deal officially on Monday. The terms of the deal stipulate that a partnering country cannot withdraw during the first three years of submission. However, Trump has the ability to send a letter to the United Nations on Monday to announce his intention. It would not become official until one day following the 2020 election.

During the early part of Trump’s campaign, he identified that the Obama administration negotiated the Paris agreement poorly by not putting the needs of American workers first. He believed that China and other member countries were benefiting from the funding provided by the United States, becoming the financing arm of the deal.

China is one of the many countries that signed the deal. They are also the largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world. They made no commitment to cut greenhouse emissions when signing the deal whereas the United States promised to cut by 26% to 28%. The communist nation only identified that it would reach “peak emissions” by 2030. While they have taken steps to close down coal mines and shut down some of the coal-fired power plants, it is not identified as to how dramatically they have been able to cut greenhouse emissions. Beijing also became the first city in China to replace all coal power with natural gas.

Gina McCarthy, the former administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency under the Obama administration has not responded for comment. McCarthy was involved with crafting environmental policies in order to bring the United States into compliance with the Paris deal.

The Democrats are quick to criticize what Trump has done. He has done what he felt is necessary to protect the United States. He has followed the constitutional rules outlined, however, going through the House and Senate as necessary. Obama, however, clearly went around the Senate whenever he could because he knew that he would not get the sign-off.

Entering the Paris deal was a mistake from the beginning. While it can be advantageous to cut greenhouse emissions, the United States should not be the financing arm. Each country should be working to cut greenhouse emissions of their own accord without depending on the US to finance it. While the Dems can turn this around to say that Trump doesn’t want to help the climate, the reality is that he’s doing it in a legal way that makes better sense for the United States.

  1. obama was born illegally, and corrupt! this piece of…WILL PAY, on earth, or when he gets in front of his maker! That punishment will be A LOT HARSHER, and will be FOR ETERNITY! Can’t wait!

    1. As a muslim Obama will stand before Satan and receive his reward, but the reward will be a joke on him as the devil’s reward will be for a useful idiot.

  2. OBAMA DID ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE TO HURT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BUT WAS DOES HE CARE? DOING THOSE EVIL THINGS MADE HIM RICH BEYOND MEASURE.

    1. But you see the news hammering on whether the was one of the best presidents this country has had or not, while in my opinion, I believe he was WORST than even
      JIMMY WHO, who lacked the brains to be a plain idiot but who, in spite of it, made
      it to the presidency, fact who does not speak too damned well of the American
      electorate…
      OR DOES IT…?????

  3. Obama was the radical left first “Trojan Horse”.
    Metaphorically, a “Trojan Horse” is used to mean any trick or strategy that causes a target to invite a foe into a securely protected place;
    or to deceive by appearance, hiding malevolent intent in an outwardly benign exterior; to subvert from within.
    In computing, a Trojan horse, or Trojan, is any malware which misleads users of its true intent.

    The radical progressive, socialist, democratic left is our new political “Trojan Horse”.

    Beware of the “Trojan Horses”.

    1. WAIT JUST A MINUTE. Let’s give credit where credit is due.
      O blah blah blah ma WAS the ABSOLUTE BEST half black moron, quarter muslime terrorist, gay looney liberal, criminal Chicago mobster, slimeball socialist thug, and idiot community un-planner ever allowed to be a squatter in the White House.

      1. REMEMBER his half brother claimed that Barrack Obama was not a natural born American and to top it all he grew up outside U.S.A. that is why he despised AMERICA. He claimed and lied about his birthplace because Barrack was able to get good Liberal powerful people who groomed and backed him to be the first black U.S. President. Remember how his friends were able not to publish Barrack’s college grades before getting to Harvard?

        1. It was the abjectly rotten leftist media turned KINGMAKER thanks to our STUPIDITY that ELECTED and even REELECTED this BLACK MUSLIMn “presidente”….!!!!!!

  4. Well this is just another example of Obama breaking the law, what else is new. Can we put this guy in prison yet? This former president, and I use this term loosely, was a maverick and a lose cannon. Obama should be indicted and sent to the slammer.

    1. He doesn’t deserve taxpayer pay for his time in prison. He and the whole Democrats House should be executed by firing squad. These Democrats benefit off of everything that by pass the SENATE.

    2. In the United States, in order for somebody to be sentenced to probation, servitude, imprisonment or even death, there has to have been a statute authorizing the sentence for a particular offense at the time that an instance of the offense was committed. It also means that the offense would be a crime. Otherwise, the offense is not a crime at all, and as such, if it is also not a civil infraction, can only be mitigated by a suit at law. The penalties for civil infractions do not extent beyond fines, asset forfeitures, revocations of permits, or revocations of licenses. In the case of foreigners present in the United States, they can be deported for being present therein on an expired visa or for committing other civil infractions. This is the way of things in the concept of “rule of law”.

  5. OBAMA is a despicable liar and thief, he did everything possible to line his and his families pockets, and create more burdens for the American taxpayer. He shoild be arrested and have to face the music, so should all the people involved in putting an African national in the WH.

  6. As I recall Obama added his name to an historical document, either in the Capitol Rotunda or somewhere, I hope Triump finds it.. and removes it.

  7. The climate supporters should freak out this winter, it’s supposed to be a cold one.
    As far as obama, well, not surprising he agreed to the climate issue without senate approval. Maybe he should have taken that advice he heard whispered into his ear.

  8. Article II, Section 2 Clause 2. The president can enter into Treaties with other nations with the consent of a Super-Majority of the US Senate. The Paris Climate Accord WAS a Treaty. Obama bypassed the Senate so it was never legal. Can we retro-actively Impeach BarryO? How about just cut off his taxpayer funded retirement?

    1. The manner of addressing the offense or perceived offense has to conform to existing law, per the customs of rule of law. The ninth section of the first article of the Constitution of the United States has a clause stating, “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” However, the third section of the third article of the Constitution does state, “The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”

  9. For a man who thinks he’s smarter that the average bear, he sure is a dump M.F’er I can’t wait to read the headline “Barack Obama indited for treason All assets confiscated and returned to the American people, Michelle outed as transvestite, goes into hiding” This is not far off

  10. I want to know when somebody’s going to have the guts to start taking down these communist elites who think they are above the people in above the law, as they strike down each country with this lien the seat of this climate change that has been going on since God created the earth, only used by these lowlife upper scum for one purpose in the purposes control control control of the many, while or as always e I want to know when somebody’s going to have the guts to start taking down these communist elites who think they are above the people and above the law, as they strike down each country with this lien deceit of this climate change that has been going on since God created the earth, only used by these lowlife upper scum for one purpose in the purposes control control control of the money, while or as always exempt Their self.

  11. i knew zerobama was a complete liar when he ran for office,i had heard a real snake oil salesman in the philippines,that sounded exactly the same!!’if you like your plan,you can keep your plan’ if you like your doctor,you can keep your doctor’,only 2 of his constant,blatant lies!

  12. Planet change not climate change, planet has bean changing for millions of years , did man reverse the pols ? Did man separate the continent? Did man melt the ice age? Did man create hurricanes ? Did man create earthquakes? Did man create title waves? No we did not ! It’s a lie it about making people think it’s there fault and make us pay for it ! The will put a digital meter on your car , on your chimney, on your lawn mower and every time you youse them they will bill you, it’s about extorting our money , the democrat party and ( the billionaires) have invested in stocks and if it goes through they all would become Trillionaire’s , and trump killed it! Love trump !

  13. Planet will not stop changing just because man is here! If we could control the weather then we could change the moons weather! They prey on our youth , trick them , we were supposed to have all bean dead 30 years ago , they just keep saying ten years , now it’s twelve years , truth is it’s all a lie !

  14. I have never responded to these before bit I feel it’s necessary. Maybe all should take a step back and think about what is being said. The name calling is not necessary to get the message across. God so loved the world. I can agree to the basic message with out stooping to this language. We are to follow the example Jesus left for us. We need to think whether or not we will be ashamed standing before the creator Lord, because everyone will be there one day.

  15. HE DID AND THE IRISH MAN YOU KNOW FROM AFRICA AND THAT WERE THIS ASS H*LE CAME FROM THERE IS PROOF . AND IF CAN BE PROOFEN 8 YEAR’S WILL BE ERAS FROM US ANY THING THIS GUY DID IS VOIDED THINK ABOUT HOW WASHINGTON IS COVERING UP FROM US OBAMA F*CK YOU . WHAT A BITCH !!!!!!!!!!

  16. LOCK HIM UP! . . . for THIS crime and OTHERS who committed these crimes with him. Bring these TREASONISTIC TRAITORS to justice by locking them up in HANDCUFFS. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  17. I couldn’t agree more with many of the comments made here about Obama, the only elected President who actually had a plan then and still does to RUIN our America. He is NOT American. He is an alien. He should be prosecuted for his lies (treason) and is war against America and her people. Michelle Obama is prejudiced and hates whites and hates America as well. I have never been so embarrassed in all my life as I was when these two infiltrated the white house ILLEGALLY. They are liars and cheaters and this is the only way they know how to win any fight…illegally, and illegitimately. That is their way. Clintons are in the same category, liars and cheaters just the same. American love that President Trump LOVES America and wants to do what’s best for America!!!! Trump 2020.
