Reminder from the Articles of Impeachment adopted by House Judiciary Committee on July 27, 1974:
Article 2Commentary from The Jawa Report (June 22, 2014):
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.
This conduct has included one or more of the following:
1. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.
Digging A Hole
And its getting deeper and deeper...
Nevermind all the other scandals perpetrated by this administration. The IRS scandal alone should be enough to bring down any administration (and would if this were a Republican administration.)
We have a computer crash that deleted emails on an individual computer. The hard drive on that computer was destroyed. The IRS hired an email archiving company to preserve emails through 2009, but that contract was canceled only days after the computer crash that deleted Lerner's emails.
What we have is a deliberate and concerted effort to eliminate evidence. This by itself is a huge scandal, but every day its getting worse and worse.
Why are bloggers and twitters doing all the uncovering? Congress, the Justice Department, committees, special prosecutors, etc. all seem to be complete impotent. The left-wing media is complicit in the cover-ups. It is only the works of bloggers and the pajama media that is exposing this scandal.
What has happened to our government? Not only is there this impotence and incompetence, but where is the accountability?
Let me be clear about the following: the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama isn't going to happen. No matter what he has done or will do.
There is no way on the planet that America will allow the trial or the removal of the first black President of the United States.
Such is the sorry state of America today. We have gone from a nation of ideas to a nation of cults: the cult of personality and the cult of political correctness.
