President Obama’s aides met with unanimous opposition from Congress when they first raised the possibility of releasing five Taliban guerrillas from Guantanamo Bay in 2011 and 2012, and administration officials publicly and repeatedly vowed to return to Capitol Hill before making any final moves.

But with what they now say was a closing window to secure the release of ArmySgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Mr. Obama made the call to bypass Congress and make a deal swapping the five Taliban fighters in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl — and sparking a major constitutional battle with Congress.

Those facts make this whole thing ten times worse than it already was, and the "was" is an impeachable offense.

He gets told "NO!" twice so he goes and does it anyway?? What are we missing here? This situation with the usurper of questionable loyalties is so far past outrageous rather than a trial, the Pentagon should just send a fleet of tanks to the WH for some live fire drills.

Pray for me. hug.gif
