Lindsey Graham: We might have to impeach Obama if he releases more Gitmo prisoners without Congress’s approval

posted at 11:21 am on June 5, 2014 by Allahpundit

Surprising coming from Grahamnesty, who’s normally in sync with his pal McCain on matters of presidential power over war. Three days ago Maverick sided with Obama on the dispute over 30 days’ notice, saying, “I don’t think that Congress should be legislating that kind of constraint on the commander in chief.” If it’s unconstitutional to require notice from the executive, presumably it’s also unconstitutional for Congress to try to exercise veto power over which battlefield captives do and don’t get released.

Not to Graham, though. Do you suppose the fact that he’s facing a Senate primary five days from now in a deeply red state might have influenced his impeachment chatter?

“It’s going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash,” Graham said. “There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that.”

Graham served as a House prosecutor during former President Clinton’s 1998 impeachment trial…

Graham, a member of the Armed Services Committee who face a contested primary next week, said he has added language to the pending defense authorization bill that would require an up-or-down vote in Congress to approve the closure of Guantanamo.

The bill also includes a provision barring the administration from transferring detainees to Yemen, he noted.

Marco Rubio, who stands to lose much more than Graham in two years if Republicans make a play for impeachment and the public turns on them for it, is downplaying the idea. I’ll bet the White House is excited to hear Graham jabbering about it, though: Their new strategy on spinning GOP criticism of the prisoner swap is to treat it, as they treat all criticism, as a “proxy for the hatred toward the president.” That’s fantastically cynical (and characteristic) but it makes sense strategically, as it’ll force lefties to circle the wagons around O for partisan reasons even if they too have misgivings about the deal. The more Republicans rattle their sabers about impeachment, the more liberals can start coughing about “hatred” and “overreach” and “politicization,” yadda yadda. But as I say, Graham’s first order of business is winning his primary. For the next week, at least, his political interests are more important than the party’s.

I’ll say one thing for his impeachment warning, though: At least it focuses people’s attention on the magnitude of awfulness in the Bergdahl prisoner swap. Because it was, in fact, truly awful:

SHEYKHAN, Afghanistan—Taliban forces led by Mohammed Fazl swept through this village on the Shomali plain north of Kabul in 1999 in a scorched-earth offensive that prompted some 300,000 people to flee for their lives…

When the Taliban seized control of this area from their Northern Alliance rivals in 1999, they systematically demolished entire villages, blowing up houses, burning fields and seeding the land with mines, according to two comprehensive studies of war crimes and atrocities during wars in Afghanistan and human rights reports. Mr. Fazl played a major role in the destruction.

“There was not a single undamaged house or garden,” said Masjidi Fatehzada, a shopkeeper in Mir Bacha Kot, the district center. “My entire shop was burned to the ground. There was nothing left.”

He’s wanted by the UN for possible war crimes, as is another member of the Taliban Five, in case you’re wondering just how dangerous Obama’s willing to get in his quest to close Gitmo.

As I write this, news is breaking that Ted Cruz will introduce a bill that’ll halt new releases from Gitmo until after Congress has investigated the Bergdahl swap. That seems like an easy compromise position for a GOP caucus polarized between potential impeachment proceedings and giving Obama carte blanche under Article II a la McCain.

Hmm, not sure basing a decision on the law and the right thing to do upon whether another group of people will approve or not is the right way to decide whether to do the right thing or not.

Whether the Senate or anyone else will approve doesn’t matter – you bring the case, make the case, prove the case, and send it on. If the Senate refuses to act, shame on *them*. The House refusing to do the right thing is their own shame.

Impeachment proceedings would kill any chance of comprehensive amnesty so there is no way the GOP would go there even if they thought there was a chance of getting the votes or even scoring some political points.

I just can’t muster a single iota of respect for graham. Not a bit.

The easy route is what got us here, with barkey steering the titanic into every friggin iceberg he can find in order to sink us as inefficiently as possible. Now we have GOPe flowers wilting all over the place.

Obama obviously can do as he pleases, and yet another line drawn for him to cross, again, and we’d still hear “We might have to think about impeaching Obama if he does even one more teensy weensy thing without Congress’s approval.”

Inaction and mere words are Congress’s tacit approval.

Grahamnesty is simply trying to sound like he has at least a tiny shriveled up sack, prior to his primary.

You GOPe types will never have a sack big enough to impeach Talibama.

And we can all rest assured that if you DO impeach him, you will ONLY do so if you think it will go no where and will ultimately hurt Conservatives and the Tea Party in the process.

Senator Cruz, when McLame, McConnell and Grahamnesty come to you to head up the effort impeach Talibama, you need to tell them to GET BENT.

rjoco1 on June 5, 2014 at 11:42 AM

Its an election year, the GOP is drooling over the possibility of extending its majority in the House and gaining the majority in the Senate. They don’t want to spoil that with a nasty ol’ impeachment grabbing the attention and potentially ruining their chance. An impeachment would be racist anyway.

It was dumb for Obama to use “red line” rhetoric in Syria, and it’s dumb for Graham to use it with Obama. Obama’s not going to get impeached for this or any other prisoner swap. I know the constitution lays out a legal process for impeachment and removal, but it is in practice a purely political process. No president will ever get removed from office unless the overwhelming majority of Americans want it. If they want to keep him, no crime is too serious; if they want to remove him, no crime is too petty. It’s that simple, and it doesn’t really matter whether we like it or not. Pushing impeachment without overwhelming public support is about as worthwhile and punching a brick wall.

If these scandals keep popping up, his approval will tank a bit further. Even democrats will abandon him if it gets bad enough, in order to protect their next candidate. Impeachment would never happen while he had strong support but if it drops much farther it will be more expedient for the democrats to get rid of him than to be dragged down with him.

What about a nuclear attack on, say, Nevada?

Harry Reid would disapprove and suggest Oklahoma or Arizona instead.

Wouldn’t happen. Las Vegas is the left’s moral compass.

If Obama were going to nuke someone it will be a Red State that doesn’t support him. My own state of Kentucky might even be on the list because we were the first state called against him when the polls closed in 2008 and 2012…

Now, now Lindsey. Stop that barking, not good for your voice. Also

Where is that commercial with all of the dogs barking? LOL

What a bunch of wimps.
