The Obama administration has been marked by constant scandal.
And many Americans are wondering when someone will be held accountable.
Now we learn Republicans haven’t taken impeachment off the table and could be plotting a major move.
FBI Director James Comey stunned the political world when he refused to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for using a private email server to transmit classified intelligence.
He detailed her “reckless” behavior, but claimed there was no “intent”, so he didn’t think any prosecutor would bring charges.
Congressman Trey Gowdy blasted the decision, pointing out that “intent” was not part of the statute in question, and that the Director simply rewrote the law.
Critics ripped the decision as 100% political.
Had Director Comey recommended charges, Clinton’s Presidential campaign would have been over.
But if Director Comey thought he could escape turning the FBI into an arm of the Clinton campaign, he was badly mistaken.
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is calling for Director Comey to resign or face impeachment.
Christian Broadcast News reports ACLJ’s Chief Counsel, Jay Sekulow, as stating:
“He conducted a faux investigation into the State Department email scandal in which dozens of confidential and top-secret emails passing through an unsecured, private server put our national security at risk,” Sekulow wrote in an article on the ACLJ website.
“He made secret deals to destroy evidence, thwarting congressional subpoenas,” he continued. “That’s called obstruction of justice. It’s a crime. James Comey violated the law. He violated his oath of office. It’s corruption at the highest level.
Sekulow says the ACLJ’s “senior litigation team is working with Congress, demanding the removal of Director Comey.” The ACLJ has also launched a petition drive to impeach Comey.”
But will Republicans listen?
After all, Republican leadership led by Paul Ryan refused to allow for a vote to impeach the IRS Commissioner after he misled Congress about the agency’s targeting of Tea Party groups.
The GOP establishment seems content with allowing the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton to break the law without fear of consequences.
But Republicans in Congress should not be afraid of any political fallout.
An ABC/Washington Post poll, taken in the aftermath of Director Comey’s announcement not to recommend charges against Hillary, showed 56% of the American people disagreed with his decision.
However, refusing to fight against Democrats has come to define the Republican Congress.
Whenever the Obama administration makes a decision, Republicans declare themselves powerless and accept whatever lawless behavior the administration engages in.
Do you agree Republicans should impeach FBI Director Comey for presiding over a rigged investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server?
