Meese: Obama Risks Impeachment If He Uses Executive Order For Gun Control

Barack Obama 4 SC Meese: Obama Risks Impeachment If He Uses Executive Order for Gun Control

Former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III declared in an exclusive Newsmax TV interview that President Barack Obama could easily be impeached if he bypassed Congress and enacted gun-control legislation by executive order.

Meese’s comments came on the same day President Obama told the White House press corp at the last news conference of his first term that he was reviewing actions, including issuing executive orders, where he could take action without congressional approval to confront gun violence in the nation. Obama said he would present a plan within days.

The options include stronger background checks, a meaningful ban on assault weapons, and limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines, Obama said, conceding that was unsure how such steps could pass Congress.

“I’m confident there are some steps we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president,” Obama said.

“It would not be legal. It would not be constitutional,” Meese, who served under President Ronald Reagan, tells Newsmax. “And, indeed, if he tried to override the Second Amendment in any way, I believe it would be an impeachable offense.”

  3. Elizabeth Hagenbuch says:

    How do you impeach someone who was never eligible to be President ? Obama is not a natural born citizen. Instead of impeachment, try him for treason, an offense of which Obama is absolutely guilty on many counts!
