[/quote] X What is an impeachable offense? - Anything whatsoever, as long as a simple majority of the House of Representatives decide that it is an impechable offense. If the President decided to dye his hair blue, and a simple majority of the HOUSE decided it was an impeachable offense, they could impeach him for it. What requires conviction of that impeachment? - A 2/3 majority of the Senate. [/quote] Impeachable Offenses http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/thepresidentandcabinet/a/impeachment.htm Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." Well, that's up to the members of the House of Representatives. According to constitutional lawyers, "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" are (1) real criminality -- breaking a law; (2) abuses of power; (3) [b]"violation of public trust"[/b] In the past, Congress has issued Articles of Impeachment for acts in three general categories: Exceeding the constitutional bounds of the powers of the office. Behavior grossly incompatible with the proper function and purpose of the office. Employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain. [/quote] Keep in mind those are only general guidelines, not rules or laws. The only thing that defines what is impeachable or not is the vote of the current sitting House. "high crimes and misdemeanors" is not a reference to legal wrongdoing, but to political wrongdoing. What defines that political wrongdoing in the terms of Presidential impeachment is the current sitting House by vote. The impeachment process is a political process, not a legal one. [/quote]
Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas, the highest ranking member of the House Committee of Bat&h!t Wingnuttery, proposes a solution for dealing with the threat of government default: When asked whether he would allow the government to default on its debt, Gohmert projected the responsibility for such circumstances onto Obama. "No," he said, "that would be an impeachable offense by the president."
