You were already thinking it.

Treason.

For Richard Nixon, it was a cover-up surrounding illegal wiretapping. For Bill Clinton, it was lying under oath about sex with an intern. Obama thinks he’s untouchable. He believes he’s above the law.

Evidently, he’s right.

What will it take for our spineless U.S. Congress to impeach this tyrant? This is way beyond partisan politics. This is about justice. This is about the safety of the American people. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s biggest threat to national security. He is “an enemy within.”

It’s official. America is no longer a constitutional republic. Under this “progressive” nut, we’ve become a banana republic.

The president’s latest act of lawlessness is beyond the pale. There is no question whatsoever that by freeing, to kill again, five known, mass-murdering, high-level Muslim terrorists in exchange for accused Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, Obama broke the law.

Not only did he unilaterally and arbitrarily trash the U.S. government’s long-standing policy never to negotiate with terrorists, he intentionally and overtly violated a 2013 national defense bill that unambiguously requires he give Congress 30-days notice before releasing any Guantanamo Bay prisoners, much less five of its most deadly.

As ABC News reports: “‘Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Berghdal’s release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,’ said House Armed Services Chairman Howard P. ‘Buck’ McKeon, R-Calif., and Senate Armed Services Ranking Member James Inhofe, R-Okla., in a joint statement.”

Bingo.

Let the American kidnapping spree begin. The Muslim world is celebrating this as a huge victory in its anti-American jihad.

The Muslim world is right.

As McKeon and Inhofe predicted, the Taliban has already announced that Obama’s unilateral surrender has “encouraged” them to kidnap more Americans to trade for terrorists.

Is anyone surprised?

Is Obama?

No way.

Even many in the liberal media are flummoxed by this one, with, for example, MSNBC producer Steven Bennen reluctantly admitting that Obama was likely “acting outside the confines of the law.”
