“HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS”
by Sharon Rondeau, h/t VW
(Dec. 10, 2015) — In a radio interview with Kevin Scholla on Wednesday, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL3) said that he “does not think it’s too late” to impeach the occupant of the Oval Office known as “Barack Hussein Obama.”
Two years ago, Yoho had raised the potential impeachment of then-Attorney General Eric Holder.
Like The Post & Email, Scholla referred to the current “administration” as a “regime.”
In April, Yoho was sponsor of HR 198, which he said “didn’t gain much traction because it has the word ‘impeachment’ in there.”
He said that the bill “defined high crimes and misdemeanors,” referring to Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.
Yoho told Scholla that he is “hoping” that “a joint resolution of a disapproval for Barack Obama” will “come up next week” in the House of Representatives. He said that the resolution will “focus solely on national security” and indicated that “some of the chairmen from the committees that would deal with this” expressed the sentiment that “I can’t believe nobody’s stepped up to impeach this president.”
Yoho said that people in his congressional district “are clamoring for” Obama’s impeachment.
“I’m excited about this,” Yoho said of the prospect.
“This is about any president that is sitting in the executive mansion,” Yoho asserted, “Republicans, Democrats, anybody that’s sitting in the White House.”
Over the last 5-6 months, JB Williams of The North American Law Center (NALC) has been encouraging Americans to join their respective state Constitutional Accountability Coalitions (CACs) formed to urge state legislators and members of Congress to initiate Articles of Impeachment into the House Judiciary Committee.
NALC composed Articles of Impeachment during the summer of 2014, about which The Post & Email interviewed lead attorney Stephen Pidgeon. Pidgeon has also appeared on several recent radio shows to discuss the Articles.
Yoho said that any president who oversteps his constitutional authority would be “forewarned” by such a resolution.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow called Yoho’s current push for impeachment an “odd preoccupation.”
Yoho was not specific about actions taken by Obama which he believes qualify as “high crimes and misdemeanors,” but recent remarks by presidential candidates pertaining to the admission of Middle Easterners from Islamic countries have highlighted the rising concerns about national security and safety since the December 2 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, CA which killed 14 people and injured 21.
The woman involved in the attack, Tashfeen Malik, was allegedly admitted to the United States on “a so-called fiancé visa,” although details about how she entered the country are rapidly evolving.
Williams was a guest on Thursday morning on Jeff Crouere’s radio program, “Ringside Politics” to discuss Obama’s impeachment.
