The Constitution sets pretty specific grounds for impeachment – “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Treason is defined in the Constitution as “adhering to (America’s) Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, a former Delta Force commander, believes President Obama is doing just that, letting terrorists flow across our borders and “refusing to obey the law” in giving them aid and comfort.
Boykin was responding to recent reports that ISIS cells had been established just south of the Texas border, the same area where agents are being ordered by the Obama administration to release illegals without giving them a “notice to appear” before a judge.
Via the Daily Caller:
Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, a former Delta Force commander, says President Obama is letting terrorists flow across the U.S.-Mexico border — and that Republicans are too “paranoid” to stop him.
“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.
“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,” stated Boykin.
“I believe, that this is where the Congress should intervene.” Boykin said. “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 then shockingly suggested that senior military leaders may have to act if Congress refuses.
