Should the U.S. people impeach Obama over the recent controversy regarding the Bowe Bergdahl swap and other political matters? Impeaching President Obama is what needs to be done, argues Fox News analyst and former Judge Jeanine Pirro this week in a now viral video. The Inquisitr shares Pirro’s opening statement this Wednesday, June 11, 2014, discussing her points over wanting to see Obama go and why he is essentially bad for America after violating the President’s “sacred trust” with the U.S. nation.
A final impetus to impeach Obama has been brought up numerous times before by various Republican figures, yet the latest plea to the American people by Judge Jeanine Pirro is stirring up some definite discussion on this particular political front. The Fox News analyst made a public statement earlier this June, saying it is time to impeach the U.S. President following Obama exchanging POW Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban members from Guantanamo Bay prison. The prisoner swap has been seen as a contentious decision by both party sides, but Pirro believes it’s a moot point now.
Judge Jeanine Pirro, a legal analyst for Fox News and a prosecutor of the law, took to national television to share her beliefs as to why President Obama needs to be impeached. (Those who follow Pirro will know that the female political figure also said Obama should be removed from office following the Benghazi terrorist attack and rumors of a subsequent cover up.)
This latest opening statement on her hit Fox News series, titled “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” is something that the Daily Caller is citing as powerful declaration. Pirro argues that impeaching Obama is a must because the U.S. President has violated his sacred trust with both his esteemed position and the American people ... “from whom he derives his power … and [whom] have the inalienable right to remove him.”
“Mr. President: you are destroying this country. You have diminished us on the world stage,” Pirro said. ”You have trampled on the very laws you swore to uphold. You are not a true commander-in-chief. We’ve impeached a president for lying about sex with an intern.”
Later on in her televised segment, Pirro discussed more on the Guantanamo Bay controversy and Obama’s recent actions being bad for America:
“Could it be, Mr. President, he was your excuse to release five Taliban terrorists from Gitmo? Those five men, the worst of the worst. Some wanted by the UN for mass murders, killing thousands, al Qaeda-connected, these are the guys who behead their enemies, including children. They hate America and everything we stand for. And you release them — knowing many return to the battlefield — because Arab country Qatar assured you that they do not pose a threat to us? And you’re good with that? You buy it? You think 12 years in Gitmo has softened their resolve to kill us? Mr. President, you didn’t just release them, you unleashed them, and you and you alone will be responsible for the hell that will be unleashed on us. You have teed us up for death and destruction …”
Judge Jeanine Pirro lashed out at Obama for allowing a trade-off to be executed between the U.S. government and the Taliban late last month. The exchange involved getting back U.S. sergeant Bowe Bergdahl — who has been accused by some fellow American soldiers of leaving his post and being a possible deserter in Afghanistan — for five high-level members of the Taliban. The situation became only more precarious after the public learned that Obama approved of the POW swap before consulting Congress with a 30 days’ notice, which is normally a federal law.
Since the Fox News analyst’s viral video, the Impeach Obama Campaign online has seen a sudden tick in public interest as well. Ultimately, based on her opinion and experience, Pirro believes that there are now adequate grounds for our U.S. President to be removed from office in the White House. What’s your take on the recent exchange and Pirro’s argument?
