Is Impeachment the Proper Course of Action?| The Post & Email

Is Impeachment the Proper Course of Action?|

The Post & Email: Inasmuch as Article II, Section 3 the Constitution commands the President to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed”—and inasmuch as one of those “Laws” is the Constitution itself—and inasmuch as Section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment explicitly empowers Congress alone “to enforce” Section 4—it follows that any attempt by the President to usurp any or all of the powers “[t]o borrow Money”, “[t]o lay and collect Taxes”, or to emit fiat currency in order purportedly to enforce Section 4 would constitute a “high Crime[ ] and Misdemeanor[ ]” for which “Impeachment” and “Conviction” would be appropriate, followed by criminal prosecution of both himself and his accomplices. Compare U.S. Const. Article II, Section 4 with Article I, Section 3, Clause 7 and with 18 U.S.C. �� 241 and 242.

So it would appear that even the erudite Constitutional scholar, Dr. Edwin Vieira, has concluded that we must first impeach the usurper, so that he can then be prosecuted and tried for any and all of his ‘high Crimes’ committed while occupying a ‘high’ (elected) office – whether lawfully seated or not.
