Would Obama Have Been Impeached If He Acted Like Trump?

Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) believes if Barack Obama had acted like President Trump during the Summit With Vladimir Putin he would be impeached.

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: you say you don’t talk about President Trump and that’s not your message on the stump but after the president’s meeting in Helsinki you tweeted out ‘the president has violated his oath to preserve and protect and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic.’ If you think he violated oath of office, do you think he should be impeached?

MCAULIFFE: If President Clinton or President Obama had gone to Helsinki and done what President Trump had done, you would already have impeach hearings going on. This president went over with Putin, our sworn enemy, what he has done all over the globe, this is not our friend. He is not our ally.

TAPPER:  Do you want to impeach?

MCAULIFFE: Russia’s economy is smaller than Italy, they are our thirtieth trading partner. Why is he over there elevating this country and this president to a level of a super power which they are not?

TAPPER:  You said he violated the oath to protect and serve and protect and defend the Constitution. Do you think he should be impeached?

MCAULIFFE: I think that’s something we ought to look at. Clearly what he has done with Putin, he is a foe, he fights us every single day. We’re battling him all over the globe including what’s happening in Ukraine and what’s going on in Syria today. There has to be a reason why he’s over there acting the way he acts with Putin. This man is our enemy. He fights us. And do not forget they came into the 2016 election, they came in and tried to destroy the greatest democracy in the world, the United States of America. We cannot forget and now we’re hearing this week that they are continuing their efforts. They are undermining our country.

    Russia not a superpower? That is news to me. There are so many times Obama should have been impeached, he violated just about every section of the Constitution, exceeded his authority as President, supported terrorists around the world and ignored his oath of office. It is turds like McAuliffe that are destroying America, him and the Democrat party.

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      You’re right about Russia. While it’s economy isn’t that large, it has nuclear weapons and a large military.

    • The Redman

      Nah, “long” turd. Racist white-folks alone, ruined america. U idiot. haahhahahahahahha

  • Logician

    McAuliffe’s basic message remains the same Democrat mantra … Putin is bad and a threat to the free world. But we don’t have a free world, we have massive entrenched globalist interests pushing multi-culturalism (aka diversity) and mass migration, destroying historic cultures and the European-based civilisations which have brought so much development and prosperity. Putin and his support for Assad are stabilising factors attempting to give long-term security to our Christian foundations and an indispensable bulwark against Islamic totalitarian conquest and Zionist expansionism.

  • Ron C

    Obama absolutely wouldn’t have been impeached for any crime…the Globalist’s are pushing for the destruction of our nation!
    Trump is strengthening our sovereign nation…and for his everts is being pursued by a witch hunt…with absolutely no crime or proof…period!
    The so called good men & women of the FBI & DOJ are disgracing their selves & and our nation!

  • Junie

    Toooooooo many things Obummer did and nothing happened. He never even gave his true identity. He did non repairable damage to all of America. Race and Gay rights were his first importance and no one inCongress did a damn thing to stophim. They were all in with him. President Trump is a TRUE BORN AMERICAN, that’s Why They hate him. Obummer stirred RACIAL DIVIDE like i haven’t seen since the 50’s. Blacks need to open their eyes to the Democommies Party and how they hate them but want their votes. At least Trump is trying to help folks have jobs now.

  • Bob

    Wasn’t it Hillary that did (tried) the Russia reset? I guess she did it with the approval of Obama. And the left seems to not mention Obama’s 2012 whisper to thevPresident of Russia for him to tell Putin he (Obama) would have more flexibility after the election.

  • VIP

    I doubt it as the republicans didn’t control the Senate and the Democrats approved anything Obama did even if it violated sanity and the American constitution as they could be amended to accommodate his whims.

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      I doubt Mueller and his junk yard dog partisan lawyers fear the president. Besides, he has no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians.

      He’s trying to drag out the investigations by intimidating and suborning people to claim Trump did supposedly illegal, unethical, or immoral things years ago so as to influence the midterm and 2020 elections.

      • Linda Ely

        This is all a very evil game here. They have reasons to fear, {albeit} the smurky smile from Strzcock {probably spelled wrong, but you et the point } and the ugly trolling of Mueller.. They are laughing at God and us. They will be rewarded just as O’bama, and Clintons, + his cohorts Big {who thinks he’s a man, Kimmel} Little Man Kimmel, all the malignant leftish pretending to be reporters and newscasters, like the view and CNN and others.

        • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

          As the Scriptures state, God will not be mocked. So I pray many of those mocking Him will repent and be saved.

          Sadly, we know many will not. So we need to stand up for what is right. Not that it’ll be easy.

  • Aline

    That piece of gay crap should be hanging on a short rope from a tall tree! Does that answer your question?

    • Linda Ely

      Didn’t the Italian people do that to Mousse allini {sorry for he slur} and his doggie. Only she had a vagina to show. Times change do they not !!!

      • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

        Why the crassness? We conservative should try to take the high road despite the temptations. Of course I never get tempted. 😉

  • jon

    did Obama not tell the Russian ambassador to tell Vlad i will have more leeway after i get reelected. that sounds like he was cutting a deal for Russia’s help him to get reelected.

  • pete0097

    But it was alright for Obama to tell the Russians that “After the election I will have more abilities” insinuating that he could make executive decrees giving more to the Russians than just 20% of our uranium.

  • Meg

    Obama wasn’t impeached because of his race. Had he been a white man, he would have been impeached or asked to resign just like Nixon and Clinton.

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      Maybe, but the Democrats in the Senate would never have voted to convict him, just as they did’n do with Clinton. One Democrat even said before the hearings that no Democrat would vote to impeach or convict no matter what was presented. He was right.

      • Linda Ely

        Now, what does tell you my man. Think on that . Just be they are Satan’s Advocates does not mean that they will win. one way or another something is changing radically here. Ya’ll need to read about the finger of God, the Almighty.

        • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

          The question was about whether or not Obama would’ve been impeached if he’d acted like Trump at Helsinki. As I pointed out, the Democrats would never have allowed him to be convicted.

          I never indicated that the Democrats or in the end evil will win. So your comment seems like a non-sequitur. But I’ll say this, in the Scriptures America doesn’t appear to be around to save God’s people, Israel. Why’s that? Is it on the side of evil or is it defeated or destroyed.

          In any event, I pray that we heed 2 Chronicles 7:14 so that God will heal our nation. Also, I hope America will be counted among the sheep nation. That much I’ve gotten from reading the Word of God.

          • Linda Ely

            Mr. # 2, you have verified my thoughts. And, that is not a non- sequitur to me. All is relevant. Please do not quote to me spewing your rhetoric.I have been taught that vanity is The evils one favorite sin. Me thinks that you are bipolar in some sense. And, we all have our other half. Maybe, in my ponderings Being sheep is why we are where we are. I do not believe God wanted us to be sheep in all respects. Henceforth, the Ten Commandments. And, in your surname keep sake. We are not, or never should be the keepersof the world. Again, all is relevant. It was not America who murdered, maimed, the Jewish people. From biblical to WWII and even as now. we are supposed to just stick our heads in the sand. I also have learned from reading Gods book, and as I grew. The books of old testament thru the new testament states “pick up your shields & armor. All relevant. Ask the apple of Gods Eye, King David. Definitely not a sheep. As for my being crass, you are deadly correct there. O’bamas aren’t the only ones. Anyone riding that dragon should be stopped. Sounds like a Democrat/neo Nazi to me, trying to find redemption. Are you drooling because Clintons or O’bama haven’t been stopped. Vanity is {I believe} the evil one’s favorite sin. I have been punished and Blessed. That’s life. This is sequitur to me. Maybe, there a Godly reason Trump gave Israel back to His people. You won’t say ever again to anyone that this is non-sequitur

          • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

            I apologize for disturbing you so. From your bearing of false witness against me and your rank display of animus I’ll assume you’re not a Christian.

            I’ll also assume you’re both inerudite and aliterate. Did you complete high school? Almost your entire post is a non-sequitur.

            Being a gentleman and child of God saved by Jesus Christ I’m not crass to women, even if they don’t act like ladies. So again, my apologies.

            Please find Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

          • Linda Ely

            Excuse me, I must a fool when even trying to disagree with a person who trolls people at 2:30 in the morning. Can’t sleep Roberto. For being an illiterate…you’ll notice that illiterate has {2} L’s, not one. I have…If only a very hard earned Associate in Social Sciences. If you are an example of a Christian than I wouldn’t ever want to be like you, whatever you claim. People who mock God do not want to be redeemed. There will be one day when many Christians who will be fooled by the pretender.You need to take your bible and go thump it on a street corner somewhere. Become a missionary and go to the Middle East, in particular Iran, or even better how about China. Especially, when you feel like trolling someone . DO NOT QUOTE BIBLE TO ME. The evil one can quote bible text better than any burnout. I accept your apology, tough rather considering my inerudite self. What is happening in this life will happen. And, people who blasphemy Gods name and pretend to be a believer is like dirt in his sight. They are hated by God. And yet…I feel so Blessed when I feel in my soul that God has is the one who Blessed me.

          • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

            Do you even know the meaning of troll? I think not, just as you don’t understand the meaning of the word ALITERATE. I take it English isn’t your primary language. No matter, I admire those who speak several languages. I don’t think you’re a fool. I apologize if you think I implied that.

            As you rightly say, those who mock God don’t want to be saved. Yet we Christians should still pray that the Holy Spirit convinces them otherwise. That’s why I said we should pray for the Obamas and the Clintons. Do you disagree with that? Do you think that’s blaspheming God? I hope not. And that’s why I’m not ashamed of referring to His Word when needed.

            Have a pleasant and blessed weekend.
