    Senators do not vote for impeachment. That is the House's responsibility.

    So impeach the SOB and then arrest him for the felony (or two, or three or more) that he has committed.
    Personally aid and comfort to a terrorist organization is enough for a life behind bars.
    I would prefer the death penalty. Some say I aim too high.

    Why do you believe that? Every law limits executive branch power.

    Senators vote to remove an impeached president from office.

    It requires no senate votes to impeach the president. Impeachment occurs in the House of Representatives.
    Impeachment proceedings may be commenced by a member of the House of Representatives on their own initiative, either by presenting a listing of the charges under oath, or by asking for referral to the appropriate committee

    and...

    A simple majority of those present and voting is required for each article or the resolution as a whole to pass. If the House votes to impeach, managers (typically referred to as "House managers", with a "lead House manager") are selected to present the case to the Senate.

    So impeach the SOB. Then arrest him for breaking the law. Put him in prison until the trial. He is a flight risk. And finally find the SOB guilty and lock him up for life.

    Obama did not make a wise trade. PFC Bergdahl (he was promoted to sergeant while being held captive) is well documented that he was a disserter and good honorable paratroopers lost their lives searching for this bastard. Various sources from Bergdahl’s unit, the 501st Airborne Infantry are reporting in around the Web with this information:


    PFC Matthew Michael Martinek, Staff Sgt. Kurt Robert Curtiss, SSG Clayton Bowen, PFC Morris Walker, SSG Michael Murphrey, 2LT Darryn Andrews, were all KIA from our unit who died looking for Bergdahl. Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl.

    Here’s Article 85 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the statutory regulation dealing with desertion:


    (c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.

    And the damning evidence against PFC Bergdahl from those in his unit is being made known via the Internet. He made no secret of his disillusionment with America, sending emails to his parents, one of which contained this statement, “The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools... I am sorry for everything here”
    A fellow trooper, Jason Fry, has gone on the record that Bergdahl told him, "If this deployment is lame, I'm just going to walk off into the mountains of Pakistan."

    So justify anyway you can the release of 5 rabid Taliban who will be out soon orchestrating more killings of Americans in exchange for what is shaping up to be one lame ass dissserter.
    As anyone dared ask the question, "Why would you promote a PFC to Sgt while held in captivity if said PFC was a deserter? I'm familiar with battlefield promotions, but PFC Bergdahl wasn't on the battlefield when the promotion was given. So, why promote a "deserter"?

    Great. Confirmed.

    The rest of your post is lunacy.
    Perhaps only because of your love of tyranny as long as it is exercised for your team.

    I would like to see a firing squad for this offense. Is that too much to ask?

    I don't think you know what "tyranny" means.

    Yes. In fact, it's utterly insane.

    The fact that you think, over a prisoner-for-prisoner swap, we should shoot the twice duly elected President of the United States, then you have left Earth's gravitational pull and are headed at cruising speed toward Planet Crazy.

    I know quite well. We are living in a soft tyranny. The hard part usually comes later.

    Yes. In fact, it's utterly insane.

    He appears to have committed treason, offering aid and comfort to our enemy during war. He needs to be tried, convicted and then executed.

    If we can only get him on a lesser charge then life in prison would be barely acceptable.
