Were you under the impression that Congress can indict someone?

Really?

Articles of Impeachment - Nixon

Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.

What is happening now and what happened then are separate issues. Boehner needs to be making an issue of the stonewalling happening NOW and he flat refuses to engage the WH directly on it. There has been a new revelation of Obama Admin malevolence on a near weekly basis and Boehner does NOTHING.

Do you think Pelosi/Reid would be that meek? No chance.

Who would arrest a sitting President after impeachment in the House and conviction in the Senate? I would assume US Marshals.

The above article specifically stipulates a direct link back to Washington. Yet another article on this states that it leads directly back to the White House. A violation of law would normally be investigated under Holder, who has shown zero compunction towards ignoring and covering up all manner of illegal dealings no matter what Federal Agency is under question.

Both need removal from office for “high crimes and misdemeanors”. The least of which is violation of their oath of office, the greatest of which is treason for their support of radical Islamists over seas.

So yeah... Sorry if your vision doesn’t reach that far, but not all of us are quite that myopic.

Yeah, that’s a different schedule page than I was looking at before. Unfortunately, I can’t get the video feed at work, and there’s something else on C-SPAN Radio, so I’ll just have to follow the comments thread.

There is a process in Congress for actions done by any Congressional Committee. They are following the process and Boehner is in favor of the committee doing their investigation following the process. Going up the food chain, so to speak, is the way it is done to finding ALL who may be guilty of crimes. Please just be patient with the Committees doing their investigations. They will get to the shark at the top of the food chain if the evidence leads directly there.

As for many calling for and blaming Republicans for NOT calling for special prosecutors. Remember, Special Prosecutors only have 90 days to complete their investigations, and with Obama’s gang, they can stall and stall the investigation till the 90 days are up. Obama would LOVE to see special prosecutors to investigate!

On the other hand, Congressional Committee's have subpoena power and LOTS of time to get the job done!

CSPAN(3) has Bernanke on.

"Congressional Committee's have subpoena power and LOTS of time to get the job done! ""

THEY DO NOTHING. IT IS FIVE YEARS of NO ACCOUNTABILITY.

NONE. Zero. Zed. Null. Empty set.


President Ronald Reagan:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"

Congress? No. I never had that impression. However, I do know that this government has full knowledge of specific individuals who carried out these illegal directives. In this recent story about Christine O'Donnell, the IRS actually admits it:

Former GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell told her tax records were breached

So yes, as a taxpayer, I am demanding indictments. Because without them, this case goes nowhere.

Please do your homework before you post.

An Impeached President does NOT go to prison or even to jail. He is simply removed from office.

Wolf continued: “It is worth nothing that the Marine Corps Times yesterday reported that the Marine colonel whose task force was responsible for special operations in northern and western Africa at the time of the attack is still on active duty despite claims that he retired. And therefore could not be forced to testify before Congress.


On the Benghazi thread. Forgot that Colonel’s name - the one in Stuttgart? who teaches Martial Arts.

Issa introduces meeting and purpose.

Next up... Trayvon Martin speaking from the grave. Says Obama is NOT GUILTY.

Trayvon still rambling on. Trying to use loopholes to bail out the Obama Administration.

OH wait... his name is Cummings.

Cummings needs to take the marbles out of his mouth, and quit lying. Neither of which will happen, of course.

Cummings is saying “no evidence....” I hope Issa had a bomb to drop on his shiny thick head.

Saying that Holder tasked staff with reviewing 500k emails and the IG failed to disclose to committee.

Progressives targeted as well.

Cummings has a full basket of red herrings today.
