Justice Department Memo in Support of Obama's Recess Appointments

The Justice Department has issued a memorandum that supports President Obama's recent recess appointments that occurred despite the fact that the Senate is conducting pro forma sessions continuously through its scheduled recesses. The memo concludes that the pro forma sessions do not remove the president's ability to exercise a recess appointment since no business is conducted during the sessions.
