Skip to comments.Hunter: Obama Inviting Impeachment If He Strikes Syria Without Congress
Posted on 09/09/2013 3:11:25 AM PDT by lbryce
Rep. Duncan Hunter said Tuesday that President Obama would be breaking the law and even inviting impeachment if he went ahead with strikes on Syria after a congressional rejection.
I think hes breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval, Mr. Hunter, a California Republican, told The Washington Times. And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.
Mr. Obama this weekend sent Congress a draft resolution authorizing use of force to take out Syrias facilities for weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons.

Sorry Syria is the diversion to remove impeachment from pubbie minds.Worst case in Syria for the dear leader is an incompetence charge.Anyone who tries to do anything with that will be branded a racist super quick so they have dodged yet another scandal.
Would be breaking the law?
IT HAS LONG BEEN BREAKING ALL LAWS.
The US Congress is HATED by the American people
because for 5 years it has covered up the fraud
and lying and perjury of the Impostor.
The US Congress has backed crucifixion, rocket attacks,
beheadings, rapes, Nun parades, church burnings,
Why? Because THIS US Congress is ONLY interested
in its bank accounts,
laws it make retroactive for ITSELF,
and its brothels, and whores, and drugs/alcohol.
The US Congress is HATED, deservedly.
Rep Hunter, with all due respect, sir, this fraud has committed any number of impeachable offenses that you could pick from that have nothing to do with Syria.
you and all your spineless pals in congress have failed miserably in your sworn duty to protect the US Constitution from this anti-American slime who has trashed it daily and made a mockery of our government.
so, do your duty. either impeach this assclown or shut the hell up.
i pray that the American people will wake up and abolish this unconstitutional government and remove all you idiots in DC before its too late.
He should have been impeached 1 day after being sworn in, in 2009...
sworn in....do you mean the first time or the second time in private when he used the Koran ?
Mere coincidence? I don't think so. Racism is the card, the black of hearts, with which White Republicans will engineer the political lynching that will be Obama's impending impeachment [sarcasm off ]
I hope the military pulls a coup on his a$$ and refuses to obey his orders
as long as Congress doesn’t change (or be forced to change) the unconstitutional “War Powers Act”, a narcissistic ignorant ill-advised malevolent megalomanic like Obama can unliterally order our military to commit acts of war for any reason he cooks up, for 60 days, without any further authorization
this will occur as long as democrats put party above nation and the GOP wobbles, waivers, eats their young, and sends sternly worded letters
With this Congress, Obama has a free hand.
And that’s not HIS fault - it’s OURS.
Obama sent Congress a draft resolution authorizing use of force to take out Syrias facilities for weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons. The WH "said" they had budgeted $50 billion PER DAY for the Syrian incursion.
Hmmmmmm.....weapons of mass destruction?. That sounds awfully familiar. Oh, yes.......the $50 billion Iraq strike that ended up costing US taxpayers trillions.
Remember, Bush estimated the Iraq strike would cost $50-60 billion.......then Bush fired Larry Lindsey because Lindsay dared to say the war might cost more like $100 billion. FAST FORWARD Iraq and Afghanistan today total about $3 TRILLION.
AS FREEPER SICKOFLIBS POSTED: 3/27/03 testimony before a Senate Appropriations Hearing
<><> Rumsfeld: " I don't believe that the United States has the responsibility for reconstruction, in a sense...[Reconstruction] funds can come from those various sources I mentioned: frozen assets, oil revenues and a variety of other things, including the Oil for Food, which has a very substantial number of billions of dollars in it."
<><>Wolfowitz: "We're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon. The Iraq war will cost little, and Iraq oil will pay for it."
The conniving Iraquis and Afghans milked (gag) reconstruction for all its worth.
<><> In Iraq the US military "trained" Iraquis for over 5 years. Here in the US, we take freckle-faced kids off the farm send them to boot camp and in three weeks we have battle-ready soldiers.
<><> In Afghanistan, the US DOD, the CIA, and other agencies, deposited zillions for the war effort into the Bank of Kabul. Afghan insiders were able to withdraw billions--no requirements about paying it back. Kharzi was seen loading billions on trucks to take out of the country.
The US military was forced to destroy billions in armaments left on the battlefields so the Afghan connivers could not get their hands on them to sell on the black market.
And this joker wants to repeat these atrocities in Syria.
Oh please. Even IF this Congress had the stones to impeach Obama, Reid and the rest of the Senate democrats (which includes John McCain and Lindsey Graham), would never, ever vote to convict him and remove him from office. So impeachment of Obama would be much like the impeachment of Clinton: pointless, and utterly useless. It would not change anything.
Good luck, Lone Wolf....
I think that issue is covered by the war powers statue allowing the president to commit forces for a limited duration before asking congress for approval.
What would need to be litigated would be if the Congressional disapproval vote mean the war powers act became inoperative.
By then it would no longer matter
Threats of impeachment are as effective as Obama’s red line.
Newflash: Barry Hussein could launch a strike at one of our own cities and the media would advocate his right to do so.
“Obama Inviting Impeachment If He Strikes Syria Without Congress”.........
Where do I sign?
Well the old, beat-up race card has as of late been declined.
