President Obama will bomb Syria, with or without congressional approval or a Russian disarmament plan, and that will make him a candidate for impeachment, according to a top legal analyst,
The prediction comes from Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, who was the youngest life-tenured Superior Court judge in New Jersey history. He dealt with hundreds of cases from the bench, served as an adjunct professor of constitutional law at Seton Hall Law School and has been with Fox News since 1998.
He’s also the author of “A Nation of Sheep,” “Constitutional Chaos,” “It is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong,” “Lies the Government Told You,” “The Constitution in Exile,” “The Freedom Answer Book” and “Theodore and Woodrow.”
Napolitano, in an appearance on Glenn Beck’s television show, said sometimes there is a moment when even people in government realize they are “undermining bases for human happiness, human prosperity and, in the case of the Soviet Union, human survival.”
He said that’s how the Soviet Union collapsed.
“That would be the preferable way for the government to change,” he told Beck.
But there is hope, he said.
“Do I think that Rand Paul could lead us to an era of happiness, prosperity and smaller government? Yes. That will presume that there is a constituency for that, that people are elected to Congress who agree with that,” he said.
“Just having a president in the White House who would shy away from power, rather than use it to his own ends, would be something the likes of which the country hasn’t seen in 175 years,” said Napolitano. “I think we can get there. I think Americans are getting to the point where they have had enough.”
Regarding establishment Washington itself, he has little hope.
“I am pessimistic with the people in Washington,” he said. “I think we’re about to endure some of the most trying times in the post-World War II era … and the electorate will react to that in 2016.”
Beck asked him whether Obama would bomb Syria.
“Yes … to appear tough,” Napolitano said. And “if he does that, he will be a candidate for impeachment.”
