In the Constitution it states:
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
There’s a lot of confusion around people on what “impeachment” is. They mostly get confused on what “high crimes and misdemeanors” is. It’s not only that if a president commits a horrible crime like bombing a building and other terrorist attacks — “high crimes and misdemeanors” means if you do anything that’s bad. It doesn’t even have to be illegal either. Lets say if a president throws a drinking party at the White House, that would be considered an impeachable offense. If the President walks to the podium to give a speech and he gives the crowd a middle finger, that would be an impeachable offense. If the President cheats on the First Lady (ask Bill Clinton) even though it’s perfectly legal, that would be an impeachable offense.
Even if it’s something as small as signing a law that is unconstitutional, that would be an impeachable offense. Making unconstitutional appointments to the Senate (like Obama did earlier this year), that would be an impeachable offense. Even a law like the NDAA would be an impeachable offense, Obamacare, his wiretapping/spying, etc. It’s not just committing horrible crimes like Benghazi and F#F.
That’s one thing I believe that people don’t understand with politics and that’s what they are missing. Some mistakenly believe that a president must do something really drastic to get an impeachment. Not exactly true. If you don’t stay faithful to the Constitution or do anything that betrays the country… committing illegal crimes, whatever… they are grounds for impeachment.
An impeachment doesn’t exactly mean a complete removal of office. Sometimes they’ll be allowed to serve the rest of their term but an impeachment also means a complete removal from office and possible punishment criminally if they do something drastic.

Obama hasn’t done anything impeachable? Oh yeah, he has. There’s a long list of things. Check out this list, here, for example. There’s plenty more if you do your research and educate yourself.
There hasn’t been any impeachment hearings yet ’cause there has been no charges brought up in the House. I’m sure they tried many times but unsuccessful and I’m sure they’re still looking into it. Obama is not the only one who needs impeachment. That goes for Joe Biden, Eric Holder, and Susan Rice. Hillary Clinton shouldn’t even be working in any type of office ever again. They all need to go.
If they don’t get the impeachment hearings rolling anytime soon before you know it, the entire United States of America will be having impeachment rally’s all over the place. The US should take note from Russia and Turkey.
