Congress must decide if it or the president declares war

Cato Institute

Is unauthorized war-making an impeachable offense? Certainly. As Hamilton explains in 'The Federalist,' the impeachment power serves as 'an essential check in the hands of that body upon encroachments of the executive,' aimed at 'those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.' Given the many abuses of public trust committed by presidents over two centuries of constitutional history, isn t it surprising we have only had two and a half presidential impeachments?

The Dispossessed Majority

By Paul Craig Roberts

It is easy to beat up on Democrats. Bush and Cheney and their neocon hoodlums destroyed the Constitution and, thereby, America. But the Democrats let them. It was Nancy Pelosi, who as Speaker of the House stridently declared Bush s impeachment to be ''off the table.''
