High-Ranking Republicans: President Obama Violated Law with Prisoner Exchange
Blaze ^ | May 31, 2014 | AP/Dave Urbanski

Posted on 06/01/2014 7:05:11 PM PDT by lbryce

Two Republican lawmakers said President Barack Obama violated U.S. laws when he approved the exchange of an American soldier believed held by Islamist insurgents for five years for five Afghan detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon of California and Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma said Saturday in a statement that Obama is required by law to notify Congress 30 days before any transfer of terrorists from the U.S. detention facility.

Yeah, he committed a crime. So what's your point? And why are you making an issue about it regarding this particular violation?

The fact is, His Turdiness, didn't do it in the interest of his own soldier but as means to freeing his kindred spirit nihilists.

Why keep them locked up when there's so much work to do, so many infidels out there breathing the air, allowed to live?

Good observation. Are they saying he can break the law 300 times but don't dare break it 301?

Yeh High ranking quislings. I’m sick of watching the Kenyan thumb his nose at Congress and the Constitution. They need to impeach him even if they can’t remove him from office.

The article says Obama believed the law itself violated his Constituional powers as C-in-C.

Really? a Constitutional crisis over one allegedly AWOL muslim traded for 5 high-ranking Talibans?

Sorry, Mr President, you signed that law then apparently broke it.

So that takes care of the Republican outrage. We can now move on to other things.

Zero is daring us to do just that and probably hopes that doing so will rally at least 51% of the country to his new victimhood status so he can hold on to the Senate.

It’s just another in a multitude of sternly worded congressional public statements containing the critters’ bawling & harrumphing on the subject of the Kenyan’s latest lawbreaking incident/nose-thumbing.
They feel they have to do something and this is better than nothing, though barely. Yeah, it’s pathetic.

So what? Since when do republicans give a crap about anything this little man has done? Do they pass laws to make him accountable? Do they vote on laws to make their Democrat friends uncomfortable with having a bad vote on the record. Just so much more hot air from an aged and dying political party. They need to trade in the pachyderm for the dodo bird.

so, he violated the law - the Senate will make a lot of noise and blow a lot of smoke and then the issue will fade away - like all the other violation of the Constitution.

and Obama knows it.

Brilliant move from the Dems. The guy (The Won) can do what ever he pleases with no repercussion.

They should STOP being afraid of being called racists. We all have the same colored brain. The spinelessness of the Republicans has become disgusting beyond disgust. We need to start flooding their offices with phone calls. That seems to get their attention. We need to demand that they make BO stop this. Let’s start tomorrow.

does anyone think a single court in this country will grant “standing” to hold Obama accountable for breaking the law?

not me.

This “standing” issue, is in my opinion the single biggest issue the country faces at the moment.
