Is the Impeachment of Barack Obama Moving Forward? ^ | May 28, 2010 | Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

Posted on 05/29/2010 6:34:44 AM PDT by Kaslin

All of a sudden, everyone is talking about the possibility of impeaching Barack Obama.

Drudge is writing about it. Sean Hannity is talking about it. Dick Morris is saying that the potential scandal is "enormous.". Karl Rove called it an "extraordinary charge." wrote that "it could be grounds for impeachment."

What happened? The story surrounding the alleged bribe of Congressman Joe Sestak initially broke way back in February. We wrote about it then, but it never broke out into the mainstream media. But because of activist pressure and the courageous work of California Congressman Darrell Issa the story refused to die. alone has delivered more than 750,000 petitions to Congress in support of impeachment. Make no mistake, patriotic Americans are driving this sudden turn of events. It is a testament to what can happen when patriotic Americans refuse to look the other way, and they make their voices heard in a real and meaningful way. It didn't hurt that Obama has failed to answer the questions surrounding the attempted bribe of Congressman Joe Sestak.

So did Barack Hussein Obama commit a felony by offering Congressman Joe Sestak a "high ranking" Cabinet position to drop out of the Pennsylvania Senate race against Sen. Arlen Specter?

Let's be clear. The commission of an actual felony is not actually required in order to impeach a sitting president, but if Sestak's allegation is true, and if Barack Hussein Obama's fingerprints are all over this offer, that's a felony, and drawing up Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama becomes a necessity.

According to Judge Andrew Napolitano with Fox News: "Federal law makes it a felony to offer 'anything of value' to an official of the government in return for a decision in your favor by that official of the government; it is called bribery."

And Congressman Darrell Issa has been relentlessly pushing the matter. He's called on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the allegation, but Holder is essentially ignoring the request.

Recently, Issa directly challenged Holder: "You don't answer or apparently investigate. ... You're not investigating whether it's a false statement by a member of Congress or a crime by the White House. What are we to do?"

Back in February, Sestak confirmed to Larry Kane, a Philadelphia talk-show host, that the White House dangled a "high ranking" job in front of him to convince him to drop his primary challenge against incumbent Arlen Specter.

Initially, the Obama White House denied the accusation. According to a Fox News report: "White House official told Fox News that Sestak is expected to 'clarify' the allegation."

But Sestak didn't take the hint... he didn't "clarify" the accusation.

He stood by his statement and told Fox News: "I was asked a direct question yesterday and I answered it honestly."

Just prior to the Pennsylvania primary, Issa confronted Holder directly, but Holder refused to comment on the case. When Issa questioned Holder on why he had not responded to his request for a special prosecutor, Holder simply said that he thought he had responded to the request and offered his apologies.

Is it possible that Sestak lied, or that he was simply mistaken?

It seems unlikely as White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs issued the following carefully guarded statement to the press: "I'm told whatever conversations have been had are not problematic" and Gibbs added that the matter was "in the past."

Stonewalling... obstruction... but it's clear by Gibbs' statement that someone made Sestak an offer.

Keeping in mind that only Barack Obama has the authority to appoint an individual to his own Cabinet, the only question that remains is: What did Obama know and when did he know it?

The American people deserve an answer.

Maybe they’ve figured out he’s too stupid to be president.

The problem isn’t Hussein - he’s merely a symptom. The real danger to the Republic is the debauched & debased electorate (his hard 25-40% support group) that is still allowed to vote.

Dead on the money.

Only if the powers that be are planning to use the “Long Hot Summer” strategy to create total civil unrest, domestic upheaval, etc.

“Uh, that was bill clinton, and they impeached him.”

lol, good point!

I remember well that Toni Morrison piece, and quite frankly Bill Clinton has a lot more “soul” that the big O does.

Its funny how this story is a repeat of the Blagovich story.

In Chicago, selling jobs while using taxpayer cash to pay for it is a way of life. Qualifications are not a consideration. Look at Michelle Obama. 300 grand a year for her to shoot off her mouth while her husband, Senator Obama, steers tax payer cash to the Hospital.

The White House has a cancer in it. It will only get worse.
