Retired Army General Says Obama Should Be Impeached

Article III, Section III of the U.S. Constitution defines treason against the United States as 1) “consist[ing] only in levying war against them,” or 2) “in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, a former Delta Force commander, along with others, argues that Obama is giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies by letting terrorists flow across our borders and by “refusing to obey the law” that has been in effect since 1952.

Boykin referred to recent reports that ISIS terrorists are camped just south of the Texas border, the same region where agents are being ordered by the Obama administration to release illegals without giving them a “notice to appear” before a judge.

“The fundamental responsibility of the president is to protect America in this instance. We know there are more than just immigrant day-laborers coming across that border. There are terrorists coming across that border, as well as drug dealers and people who are involved in criminal activity,” Boykin said, according to The Daily Caller. The general added:

When the president refuses to obey the law, and does so in a way that we are inviting people who are here to do us harm, I don’t think there’s any question that it is unconstitutional, it is dangerous, and the American people will pay the price for this.

I believe, that this is where the Congress should intervene. If we go back to the concept of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ I think they can make a very strong case that this president is impeachable.

Boykin is yet another military leader speaking out, arguing that Obama’s done more than just destroy America’s national security, but also he has committed treason. In January, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates called Obama’s national security advisers “totally naïve.” More recently, two of the remaining three men to serve as head of the Defense Department under Obama delivered equally scathing reviews of his performance as “commander in chief.”

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
