Michele Bachmann: Obama “Has Committed Impeachable Offenses

Michele Bachmann explained that Obama “has committed impeachable offenses”, and that the House could move on to impeach him without the Senate — even though such a move would be symbolic.

Impeachment is one of the most underused tools that congress has. The entire system is structurally flawed when the president realizes that he can get away with essentially anything. It creates an “imperial presidency”.

Love or or hate her, Bachmann is right. Obama has committed impeachable offenses, and the sooner congress realizes this in full, the better. Over the next few years, as his popularity dies, we’ll likely see more and more people call for his impeachment.

The Hill reports:
“We can have an impeachment hearing in the House, and in my mind the president has committed impeachable offenses,” Bachmann told conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries in an interview first detailed by Right Wing Watch.

Bachmann was careful to distinguish between the House’s ability to impeach the president, which she said would merely be a “stain” on his record, and the Senate’s authority to remove the president from office, which she acknowledged would be unlikely in the Democratic-controlled upper chamber.

Still, the Minnesota Republican warned that impeachment was a “disruptive and harmful” tool.
“Impeachment is important that we have that tool — it’s very important — but it’s also disruptive and harmful to the nation and it’s to be used sparingly,” she said.

But she argued it may be necessary because citizens are on the cusp of civil disobedience because they’re so fed up with Obama’s “thuggery.”
“I think we could be on the cusp of seeing civil disobedience — I’m not saying I want civil disobedience — but people aren’t going to take the thuggery of this president much longer,” she said. “We see thuggery going on in the White House, we’re not going to take it. We’ve drawn a line in the sand, and we’re telling the president you need to recognize … that you are a co-equal branch of government. You are not a dictator.”
