WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – House Speaker John Boehner and 47 Senate Republicans face impeachment charges for undermining the separation of powers provision of the U.S. Constitution and for actions that have all the trimmings of the ultimate crime of treason.
The impeachment charges stem from Boehner’s invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a join session of Congress (without informing the President) which was tantamount to usurping the powers of the Executive Branch and the State Department, and the recent open letter signed by the 47 Republican senators warning the Iranian government that any nuclear agreement with President Obama will not hold.
The impeachment charges will be brought forth before and voted upon by the House of Representatives and subsequently tried in the Senate. The impeachment could spell the total downfall of the Republican Party. It could also easily hand the next presidency to the Democratic nominee (presumably Hillary Clinton) since several of the Republican presidential aspirants are among the signatories to the Iran letter.
Never in the history of the United States has impeachment been brought forth before so many politicians all at the same time.
Well, there is a first time for everything.
