    How do the Democrats bring war crime charges against anyone? If they are not in office and covered by Constitutional Law then they are powerless. The DOJ could open an investigation but given this administrations record in matters related to the use of drones, the NSA, and Guantanamo I suggest that would be iffy territory. Toss in the decision of the Obama administration in 2009 NOT to go after the origins of the war in Iraq (especially given the widely based Democratic support), your position is imaginative but totally inane.

        •  How am I unresponsive? You put up a silly... (0+ / 0-)

          diary outlining Obama's possible impeachment. I then explained what the Dems might/could do in response. You then countered by saying that the Dems couldn't bring war crimes charges against Chimpy and co. because of self-implication. I then stated that the status quo will be maintained.

          Ergo, your diary is silly.

          •  Actually that clarifies your meaning....thanks (0+ / 0-)

            The status quo is that both sides are dirty and both can make cases against the other.

            My reply to you said that the Dems would not do as you stated for the reason you cite but also because the legislature does not have the jurisdiction to do this.

            I also said that the decision not to push this in 2009 was one they were stuck with.

            SO.....given that why would the GOP not press impeachment when it will make them a ton of money, excite their base, tarnish Obama's legacy, influence the 2016 race by shifting those on the borderline....OR at least that's what they think will happen.
