West: Attack on Syria without congressional approval grounds for impeachment

CNS News reports:

Liberal activist and scholar Dr. Cornel West said if President Barack Obama moves ahead with military action against Syria without congressional approval, it would be grounds for impeachment.

“You would think in some ways grounds for impeachment,” West said about what would happen if the president went to war with Syria without congressional approval.

“And so we got to war crimes, and the last thing you said, and I think you’re absolutely right about this, and I hope that if the president doesn’t get the vote that he wants – to use your phrase and I totally concur – that I hope he has more sense than to not go ahead anyway, but you used the phrase dictatorial. That’s exactly what it would be. Yes?” Tavis Smiley asked West on the “Smiley & West” show last week. Facebook Fark Furl
