Biden Threatened to Impeach President If He Launched an Attack Without Congressional Authority

Back in 2007, Presidential candidate Joe Biden (now Obama’s VP) was crystal clear about what to do if The President attacks a country that didn’t threaten us without Congressional approval – impeach him.

His 6-year-old warning is completely appropriate to apply to the current president. Watch the video.

Chris Matthews: You said that if the President of the United States had launched an attack on Iran without congressional approval that would have been an impeachable offense. Do you want to review that comment you made? Well how do you stand on that now?

Biden: Yes I do. I want to stand by the comment I made. The reason I made the comment was as a warning. I don’t say those things lightly, Chris, you’ve known me for a long time. I was chairman of the judiciary committee for 17 years or its ranking member. I teach separation of powers and constitutional law. This is something I know. So I got together and brought a group of constitutional scholars together to write a piece that I’m going to deliver to the whole United State Senate pointing out the President has no constitutional authority…to take this nation to war against a county of 70 million people unless we’re attacked or unless there is proof we are about to be attacked. And if he does, if he does, I would move to impeach him. The House obviously has to do that but I would lead an effort to impeach him. The reason for my doing that, I don’t say it lightly, I don’t say it lightly. I say it because they should understand that what they were threatening, what they were saying, what it was adding up to be, what it looked like to the rest of the world we were about to do would be the most disastrous thing that could be done in this moment in our history that I could think of.

  2. He's learned a new religion since then……….. Blood sacrifice. That changes things. Loyalty to Neadnerthals does that.

    1. Eric, you gonna delete this one, too ??? Cowards. No biggee. Yours is a side note to history, not a footnote. In case you missed, Americans respond quite favorably to my assertions. After all, the very first "homegrown terrorist", also a "white supremacist", who had a "fascination with assault weapons" and "associated with citizen militias" (and never would have let those "dancing blood sacrificing Israelis" to go home in less'n 50 yrs……….was our own dear George Washington.
