Reports circling online are suggesting that the Republican National Committee is to consider a resolution drafted for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.
The document is titled, “Articles of Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama,” it begins, “Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, acting President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment to be exhibited to the Senate.”
“Please contact your RNC members and ask them to support Michigan’s RNC National Committeeman – Dave Agema’s resolution as currently submitted for discussion at their January 13 – 15, 2016 meetings,” a Facebook statement concerning the resolution reads.
Article 2 of the resolution lists 19 examples of Obama’s “malfeasance, misconduct and abuse of the Oval Office,” including the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, and bypassing Congress with the use of executive action on key issues.
Article 3 of the resolution states that Obama has been “aiding and abetting known enemies of the United States,” citing the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas and the Taliban among others.
Agema told The Daily Wire in an interview that he will introduce the resolution, which consists of 48 criminal charges in total.
“It’s simply asking our House of Representatives…to abide by their oath of office and accomplish what they should do.” Agema states.
“The way it works is one House of Representatives member puts in impeachment articles for the House and it starts the process,” Agema adds.
“Recently, we didn’t own the House and the Senate, but Republicans do now, and the purpose of it really is we’re a nation of laws and separation of powers.” the Committeeman urges.
He adds, “It lets the president, Obama, know that we’re not going to put up with his ability to go around the Constitution. Secondly, it warns any future president that he doesn’t have that right either, and it encourages the base to get involved.”
While many on the right will champion the impeachment move, others will question its usefulness now Obama is in the final year of office.
Last month, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump told Infowars’ Alex Jones that in his view impeachment wouldn’t be a good idea.
“The best thing that we have going with Obama is that he’s got a year left,” Trump said during the interview
“So don’t make him a martyr?” Jones asked.
“In a way you’ll make him a martyr,” Trump responded.
