Chairman Frances Rice of The National Black Republican Association is calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment. The group’s statement reads in part,
We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.
…He has covered up, delayed, impeded and obstructed the investigation of the Benghazi Battle.
…He has disclosed secret grand jury material by exposing the existence of a sealed indictment of one of the Benghazi attackers in violation of Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that clearly states: “… no person may disclose the indictment’s existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.’’
…He has authorized and permitted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a division of the Justice Department, to conduct Operation Fast and Furious, wherein guns were sold to Mexican drug trafficking organizations that were used to kill innocent Mexican civilians and two rifles sold to a smuggler in January 2010 ended up at the scene of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.
…He has caused investigations and audits to be initiated or conducted by the Internal Revenue Service in a discriminatory manner, including harassment and intimidation of conservative, evangelical and Tea Party groups applying for non-profit status between 2010 and 2012.
…e has thwarted Congress by (1) failing to enforce all or parts of laws duly enacted by Congress, including the Defense of Marriage Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Affordable Care Act; and (2) after Congress refused to pass his Dream Act, unilaterally issuing an executive order directing immigration officers to no longer deport an entire class of illegal immigrants who came here as children, regardless of individual circumstances, and to give them work-authorization permits.
The NBRA makes some good points. You could make a great case that Obama deserves to be impeached. In fact, the case against it isn’t so much on the merits as it is on the practicality (Democrats in the Senate won’t vote for it) and the political aspects (Impeaching Clinton backfired on the GOP politically).
Will Obama ever be impeached?
Sadly, it’s unlikely unless the GOP takes over the Senate in 2014 and polling shows the American people want Obama impeached. Even then, the GOP is AWFUL TIMID; so I wouldn’t bet the farm the Republicans would pull the trigger even if it makes perfect sense.
