The calls for impeaching President Obama are growing louder and louder as he continues to act outside of the law, and there’s more than a few good reasons to do so which is why a top Washington attorney has drafted articles of impeachment.
As with anything else political, in order for impeachment to happen it would need support from the public and also for Republicans to take the Senate in November. Both are likely, and the Democrats are so scared of it that they’ve started using the threat of impeachment to campaign with.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy laid out the case for Obama’s impeachment in his new book “Faithless Execution,” and it’s rather compelling.
In the book he not only makes the legal case for impeachment, but also lays out a plan for building the political will in Washington and the nation. He believes that the case for impeachment must be made to the public first and then Congress will follow.
“You have to make the public case that the president has to be removed,” said McCarthy. “I’m trying to make it,” he said.
McCarthy made a name for himself by prosecuting the “blind sheik,” Omar Abdul Rahman, for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He said that Obama has been shredding the Constitution by ignoring the laws he doesn’t like, making unilateral changes to Obamacare, and using the IRS as a political weapon against his adversaries. However he does believe that there’s a lack of political will to move for impeachment.
He hopes that “The exercise of building the case and unfolding the administration’s pervasive lawlessness could pressure the president to reverse course and adhere to the law. That is even if the political case for ousting the president is futile, spotlighting presidential lawlessness could create the political and electoral conditions in which Congress could more effectively counter President Obama’s lawlessness.”
Below are the seven specific reasons for impeachment:
REFUSAL TO EXECUTE LAWS FAITHFULLY
Willful disregard for congressionally enacted, constitutionally valid law, while dictating policy by executive fiat. Including multiple unilaterally decreed amendments to the Affordable Care Act in direct contravention of the law passed by Congress.
USURPING CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY
Unilaterally instigating an undeclared, unauthorized, and unprovoked war in Libya, resulting in thousands of deaths, the killing of a head of state, and the empowerment of anti-America jihadists.
DERELICTION OF DUTY AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF
The grossly inadequate security for government personnel in Benghazi, leading to the murder of four American citizens, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
FRAUD ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
Deliberately misled the American people in the enactment and implementation of Obamacare, and on scandals from Fast & Furious and the IRS harassment of conservative groups to the Benghazi massacre.
FAILURE TO EXECUTE LAWS FAITHFULLY: IMMIGRATION
Granting amnesty through executive edict and refusing to enforce existing immigration laws.
FAILURE TO EXECUTE LAWS FAITHFULLY: DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
The systematic politicization of a Department of Justice that has covered up the Fast & Furious scandal, denied Americans equal protection of the laws, encouraged violations of law, and stonewalled Congress.
UNDERMINING THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
The selective targeting of political opponents for harassment and abuse by the Internal Revenue Service, while restricting freedom of speech and conscience.
