'It's Time to Impeach the President'

Jacob Hornberger told Press TV's U.S. Desk on Wednesday that Obama has gone to war in Libya "intentionally and knowingly and even if he's acquitted it sends a message to future presidents and to President Obama…don't ever do this again or we will remove you from office."

Hornberger said, "Since the Supreme Court is not enforcing its part of the Constitution; I say it's time for Congress to step up and enforce it on behalf of the American people."

According to Hornberger, the Constitution provides, "that the Congress can impeach a president and attempt to remove him from office when he commits what is called a high crime or misdemeanor."

The president of Future of Freedom Foundation told the U.S. Desk that what Obama has done "is clearly a high crime and misdemeanor. He has violated the higher law that we the people have imposed on federal officials. Everyone acknowledges that President Obama has attacked Libya without the Constitutional required Congressional declaration of war."

Why not impeach President Obama for this Political felony, said Hornberger. "Obama could appear at the impeachment proceedings and say well other presidents have done this. But that's not a defense". Obama is not entitled to break the law just because other people have gotten off the hook, Hornbergere stated.

This comes as Rep. Dennis Kucinich on Thursday ripped President Obama while giving credit to former President George W. Bush for asking Congress to authorize the war in Iraq. The Hill

Along with other lawmakers, Kucinich this week filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration on the Libyan conflict, claiming the president violated the law by not securing congressional approval. The Hill
