Barack Obama should be the second president from the Democratic Party to be impeached in less than 15 years, say the authors of ‘Impeachable Offenses,’ a book that will turn heads all over Washington, D.C.
In a lengthy indictment of President Barack Obama, two best-selling authors argue in a forthcoming book that the current occupant of the White House has committed numerous ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ that could justify his impeachment and removal from office.
‘Consider this book to be … a blueprint for drafting articles of impeachment,’ author Aaron Klein told MailOnline, which exclusively reviewed a copy of his ‘Impeachable Offenses,’ a book co-authored with Brenda Elliott and due out August 27.
‘It is up to the public and ultimately up to to their elected representatives,’ he said, ‘to decide what to do next.’
Obama’s actions, the authors write, include sanctioning an alleged ‘arms-to-jihadist-rebels scheme’ in Benghazi, Libya that ‘aided an Islamist revolution and armed our most dangerous al-Qaeda enemies,’
Those terror groups include al-Qaeda militants fighting alongside Syrian rebels trying to topple dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The now-infamous ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ gun-walking program, as described in the book, was a stealth effort to generate new rationales for limiting U.S. citizens’ purchases of rifles and other long guns. And massive government purchases of handgun ammunition, the authors argue, was an attempt to limit the exercise of Second Amendment rights by ‘dry[ing] up the ammo supply.’
Klein and Elliott – like a growing proportion of Americans, polls show – are dismissive of the Obama administration’s international drone campaign, and question ‘the legality of leading a US-NATO military campaign against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime without congressional approval.’
Still fighting Obamacare: Klein, Elliott and other conservatives argue that although the U.S. Supreme Court pronounced the Affordable Care Act constitutional, the way the Obama administration is implementing the law is not
President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, they write, ‘not only is unconstitutional but also illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights, and marks an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) power, constituting a clear case of ‘taxation without representation’ – one of the primary reasons for the American Revolution.’
They also slam the president for green-lighting an ‘unconstitutional war’ in Libya, for funneling billions of ‘clean energy’ dollars to ‘cronies,’ and for instituting the Transportation Security Administration – now familiar to airline travelers everywhere – as an ‘alternative federal police force’ that operates ‘in violation of the Constitution.’
‘Impeachable Offenses’ consists largely of a laundry list of well-worn conservative complaints about the White House and its current occupant. But unlike quick-hit blogs and short investigative series that have dominated right-wing grievances against President Obama, it defends its collected beef with more than 60 pages of footnotes and a systematic connect-the-dots exercise that the president’s defenders will find troublesome.
‘President Obama has clearly violated the limits of his office and the powers granted to him by the United States Constitution,’ said Klein, who, along with Elliott, has already penned two New York Times best-sellers.
