    Taliban prisoner swap was ILLEGAL and could lead to Obama's IMPEACHMENT | Mail Online

    Taliban prisoner swap was ILLEGAL claims GOP as former federal prosecutor says it could lead to Obama's impeachment

    The president ignored a law which he signed last year requiring him to notify Congress 30 days before releasing anyone from Guantanamo Bay
    The Obama administration never told Capitol Hill until after Bergdahl was in American custody and the US Taliban prisoners were preparing to leave
    A former federal prosecutor told MailOnline that while the 30-day-notice law is probably unconstitutional, putting enemy combatants back in a position to harm Americans is an impeachable offense
    A White House insider said Obama administration officials didn't anticipate how controversial Bergdahl's rescue would be, and compared it to the 1981 release of 52 US hostages in Iran

    Obama is NOT going to be impeached. People have been wishing and waiting for that since he was elected the first time. He is in for the duration, and we will just have to hope that we get someone better next time around, but I wouldn't be holding my breath on that. We're stuck with him, like it or not.

    Not to side with Obama, but there are plenty of legitimate things he has done wrong. This is not one of them. He is not bound to illegal laws passed by congress, and this is an executive decision.

    The GOP could have furthered their agenda immensely if they had worked with Obama over these past 6 years. Obama is a centrist on virtually everything. When the GOP played ball, they got like 98% of what they wanted.

    These were not combatants.

    They are just pussies. A rescue would have been better than a prisoner exchange.

    Imo, he wouldn't be worse than what we have. At least no one takes him seriously.
