Republicans: Stop Being Wusses and Impeach Obama

The Republicans can’t seem to do much of anything in Congress. So as not to continue their waste of time, there is one thing they can do during the lull: Pass Articles of Impeachment vs. Obama (see below) and other officials who have breached the constitutional covenant. Treason is just one of the grounds for impeachment. Impeachment, which is similar to a grand jury indictment, needs only a majority of the House. Conviction requires 2/3 of the Senate members present.

Even though conviction now seems highly unlikely, impeachment would at least be another blot on Obama’s “legacy” and well worth it for that reason alone.

Obama Guilty of Treason?

The Constitution provides:

“Section 3. Cl. 1. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

“By withholding information and misleading Congress, Obama has given aid and comfort to America’s enemies. That’s impeachable.” See Congress Must Hold Obama Accountable for His Deception Over Iran

“The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” (Article 1, §2)

“The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.” (Article 1, §3)

“The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. (Article 2, §4)
