Can / Should Pelosi sue Trump for barring two of her members from visiting Israel and Palestine?

Forget your opinion of Omar and Tlaib. That simply does not matter.

I think she should use the courts as aggressively as possible to find accountability for this unprecedented break with tradition.

10. Didn't mean to sound hostile

But the OP asked if Trump could be sued for something he didnít do.

12. But he DID do something. He used the power of his office to induce a foreign head of state to

take an action he wanted to see taken.

14. And how would that trigger any kind of lawsuit

even if you could prove "inducement"

How would Pelosi have standing? What would be the legal cause of action? Presidents try to induce foreign governments to do things all the time.

3. I have an idea, lets pretend President Obama told England to BAN

John McCain or that filthy fuck Huckabee or ANY popular republican and worse, England did it.

Blood would be running all over the streets in this country

6. I'm trying to think who would be in power in the UK...

... who would have come close to doing anything like this. Jeremy Corbyn on steroids perhaps? Not even he would block a member of US Congress from visiting the UK unless there would be blood spilled somewhere across the scepterd isle....

Basically the world would have to be pretty fucked up if the alternative scenario of a President Obama suggesting XYZ be banned from country X and country X complying.... But IOKIYAR, right?

4. nothing to sue for really. We can't contest Bibi being a piece of shit in our courts

but she should move to censure drumpf and recall our members of congress in israel.

9. Every bad deed by Trump must be punished. Speaker Pelosi should use all tools that

still work to inflict stings.

13. Suing tRump is not a way to win this war

tRump quite often has people who sue him, he keeps appealing the case until they other people run out of money.
