Impeach Attorney General Holder – for Justice’s Sake

Clarice Feldman

This week, I am grateful I am not a civics teacher.  The entire legal and constitutional framework under which we believe we live seemed to have been turned upside-down.  To start with, as former U.S. Appeals Judge Michael McConnell argued so well, Obama’s suspension of the employer mandate of ObamaCare conflicts with his obligations under Article II, Sec 3 to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”…

…Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution provides for impeachment of the president, vice president, and officers like the attorney general for “treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors.”  That certainly seems sufficient to cover an attorney general who regularly misuses his office to polarize race relations; who allowed countless weapons to be transferred across our southern border to thugs, who probably counseled the president that he could refuse to enforce constitutional laws.

Twice in our country’s short history, high officials resigned when faced with the prospect of impeachment hearings — Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon and Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas.  Once, a president, Richard Nixon, resigned once the articles of impeachment were reported out of the House Judiciary Committee.

It’s time for Democratic leaders to encourage Holder’s departure.  If they lack the will to do so, the House Judiciary should initiate impeachment of Holder.
