ENOUGH! IMPEACH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

By | July 26, 2011

I have just composed an email message and submitted it to House Leader Cantor via http://cantor.house.gov/contact demanding he initiate impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Holder for the charges, as per our Constitution, of  “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

This is the text of that contact:

There is MORE THAN enough evidence to hold the Asst AG Breuer directly knowledgeable for Operation Fast and Furious as per Mr. Issa’s committee evidence. As the ASST AG is directly acting under the authority of the AG a direct link is not needed to meet the fair standard of the Senate for conviction of an “overwhelming preponderance of the evidence”.(1) Even I, a concerned citizen and semi-retired self-employed house painter with but a high school education know that. Please consult with Speaker Boehner and assume your constitutional obligation to offer up a Bill of Impeachment.

We MUST place our foot FIRMLY on Obama’s neck to force change. He respects neither OUR Constitution nor compromise or diplomacy and is intent on bringing down this constitutional republic BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE, which should be OBVIOUS by his pattern of behavior to anyone with their eyes wide open.

WHY is the leadership AFRAID to make that case DIRECTLY to the American public. Be statesmen, not politicians.

Operation Fast and Furious has been already laid at the doorstep of the Assistant Attorney General Breuer. There is a memo dated March 10th, 2010(1) from Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer authorizing a wiretap application and revealing his participation in and knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious. There is another message intercept confirming a second memo dated March 10th, 2011(2), that further issues directives on this same mission.

The AsstAG and the AG can in no way claim they didn’t know the details of Operation Fast and Furious. As may be noted with both sources that are in the possession of the appropriate House Committee so all the facts are in place to initiate a Bill of Impeachment.

It is merely THE WILL TO ACT THAT IS LACKING.

Whenever the Assistant Attorney General exercises a “delegated” power” he is acting under the direct “delegated” authority of the Attorney General himself and BOTH are liable for the responsibility of such actions. The President is also responsible, but first things first. Getting Holder on the hot seat of Impeachment may reveal presidential complicity and this is of momentous import. I would remind that the standard for conviction by Impeachment is unstated in law and generally, as political precedent, been left to the invidual senator’s judgement. As a matter of practicality the idea of a standard of something less than the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard has come into general acceptance and it is an “overwhelming preponderance of the evidence”(3).

    You wrote a brilliant article about “Impeach the attorney general”. It’s a very meaningful and sensible post!! The e-mail written is great too. Thanks for allocation :)

      Thanks Dave. I opened up quite intentionally with my email contact to subliminally suggest that degree of activism to the reader should he/she agree with the case I’ve made.

      With a firm belief in my personal axiom of “Statesmen act, Politicians react.” I would suggest that you disseminate the link for this topic to your mailing group as should ALL others. By asking each of them to do likewise is how we energized the Internet engine and the assorted social media to the best advantage.

      I would suggest that if Mssrs. Cantor and Boener start receiving a dearth of comments demanding that Impeachment be commenced against the AG they may muster up enough political courage, understanding that they have enough public support, to act to push harder on the Oba-neck with sustained pressure. Presently they are mere media poseurs pontificating upon our problems and doing NOTHING constructive to push the demonRATs out on the walk-off plank of the fantail of the grand old Ship of State with the tip of our sword as motivation. That little metaphorical suggestion is to highlight the reality that THERE IS NO PRESSURE on him, Obama (or them, the demonRATs) so BOTH go along their merry obstructionist way taking us to the brink of anarchy and kicking all cans of important decisions down the road beyond NOvember 2012.

      Seeing hapless Hariet Reid state that a legitimate and serious Republican plan is DOA should do nothing les than eOUTRAGE ALL THE CITIZENRY…, but it sadly does not. We, as a citizenry, have become inured to “violations of the public trust” as business as usual and such will be the means to our end if we do not WAKE UP!
