Judge Jeanine Pirro called for President Obama’s impeachment during the opening remarks of her Saturday night show on Fox News Channel.
Pirro said President Obama fundamentally violated the established trust between leaders and the community by trading five Gitmo terrorists for American Bowe Bergdahl.
“There is a sacred trust between a country and its leader, between a president and the people he leads,” Pirro said. “When a leader violates that trust, the people from whom he derives his power have the inalienable right to remove him.”
Pirro questioned President Obama’s motives and criticized his use of unilateral action.
“Could it be, Mr. President, he was your excuse to release 5 Taliban terrorists from Gitmo? Those five men, the worst of the worst. Some wanted by the U.N. for mass murders, killing thousands, al Qaeda-connected, these are the guys who behead their enemies, including children,” Pirro said. “They hate America and everything we stand for. And you release them – knowing many return to the battlefield – because Arab country Qatar assured you that they do not pose a threat to us?”
According to Pirro, those are sufficient grounds to justify impeachment.
“Mr. President: you are destroying this country. You have diminished us on the world stage,” Pirro said. ”You have trampled on the very laws you swore to uphold. You are not a true commander-in-chief. We’ve impeached a president for lying about sex with an intern.”
“Your actions, far more egregious, demand impeachment.”
