Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution states that the President shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Since treason and bribery are off the table, we are left with other high crimes and misdemeanors.
There is no set definition for this term, but we can understand it as it was used and understood in the late 18th century. The phrase derives from English parliamentary law and was first used in 1386 against Michael de la Pole, the 1st Earl of Suffolk for basically breaking a promise to Parliament. That is, there was no specific law broken of a criminal nature like bribery, perjury, obstruction of justice or the like. In fact, after the English Restoration, it was used to include negligence and abuse of power while in office.

Articles of Impeachment- The Case Against Obama- Part 2
Too little too late. The boder fiasco has sealed our fate.
Allowing a foreign invasion ranks as treason to me, but if you mean that no one in the position to impeach will dare call it so, then off the table it is indeed.
There is no opposition party to fight Obumbo. He will spend his last 2.5 years doing what he came to power to do...Continuing to destroy America as we knew it.
Treason and bribery are off the table? Really?
excuse me... why is treason off the table?
last I checked, aiding the enemy is an act of treason... and giving the enemy 5 of their top commanders definitely fits under ‘aid’
Why are treason and bribery “off the table”? Seems to me that you could easily make a case for either of those. (Outing Seal Team 6, Obama phones, etc.)
There are more than enough reasons to impeach the Bass Turd. Unfortunately, the scumbag would wear that fate as a badge of honor when the Senate refuses to remove him from office. I can just hear him now, standing in front of a crowd of illegals and Holder’s people bragging about how he fought for them and overcame those racist Republicans who tried to remove him.
Someone should pass a copy over to Bonehead and McCarthy.
Nothing is going to be done, Its all wishful thinking
Kain’t do it!!!
He be Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack, after all!
Waste of time. What’s the point? Even if the House gets the votes, forget the Senate. Couldn’t get the votes with a repub majority let alone with Reid
sitting on the throne.
I’d love to see him impeached and convicted but it’s wishful thinking and may do more harm than good.
And reduce impeachment to a political stunt.
“...shall be removed from Office on Impeachment”.......
that certainly didn’t work with Clinton, what makes anyone think it will in odumbo’s case? Worse, WHO would be the ones to do it? ......Circkets........
The case is of course there and crystal clear for impeachment. The will to impeach is not. Our charge is to dislodge the bass turds without the will. In both Houses of Congress.
