Benghazi attorney: What Obama just did absolutely illegal, impeachable

Former U.S. attorney Joe DiGenova, who currently represents several of the so-called “Benghazi whistleblowers,” affirmed that when President Obama told the White House Press Corps at his Friday news conference that “a sealed indictment” exists relative to the Benghazi attack, he committed an impeachable offense.

When the issue of the indictment was raised on WMAL’s Mornings On The Mall Monday during the DiGenova interview, he said the indictment “is indeed” supposed to remain under seal.

“We are now getting close to a series of statements by the president that puts him on the wrong road to impeachable offenses,” he said.

“At that news conference, the President of the United States violated a court order of the United States District Court for either the Eastern District of Virginia or the District of Columbia where this sealed indictment apparently exists,” DiGenova noted.

“He is not allowed to say that. A president can declassify a document, but he cannot unseal an indictment. Only a federal court can do that,” he explained. “Whoever is the chief judge of either one of those districts should issue a show cause order for the United States attorney for that district as to why the United States attorney or the president should not be held in contempt.”

The statement DiGenova is referring to is one Obama threw out to the press Friday.

‘‘There’s a sealed indictment,’’ Obama said at the White House news conference according to ABC News. ‘‘It’s sealed for a reason, but we are intent on capturing those who carried out this attack. And we’re going to stay on it until we get them.’’

DiGenova described that statement as “unbelievable,” and added, “This was from our professor-president — our so-called “constitutional scholar.” There’s just no doubt about it — it was illegal,” he emphasized.

“But the AP reporter, Julie Pace, who was on ‘Fox News Sunday’ said, ‘It was kind of unusual for the president to talk about a sealed indictment in a public setting.’ It wasn’t unusual; it was illegal.”

    HE WAS NEVER SEEN AROUND COLUMBIA U OR HARVARD… HIS ‘CONSITUTIONAL LAWYER’ STATUS IS BOGUS. DON’T YOU PEOPLE GET IT? HE REALLY REALLY DOES NOT KNOW CONSTITUTIONAL LAW!! THAT IS WHY HE KEEPS SCREWING UP ON THAT TOPIC. THE WHOLE STORY ABOUT HIS EXPERTISE WAS JUST A ‘PLANT’.
    IT IS ALL ABOUT COMPETENCY. AND B. HUSSEIN DOES NOT HAVE ANY.

    Obama has NEVER been a professor of anything. He was a senior lecturer. He was NOT a constitutional lawyer, he was a civil rights lawyer. He STUDIED constitutional law.

    I wanna know why all you people put up with this stuff for so long, is’s time to get this dude out now, what are you all waiting for?

    Claiming racism is the first indicator that the mindless follower who’s leveled that accusation has no actual, logical basis for their blind allegiance to Herr Obama. When reason and logic are not in your favor, just bully people with ugly accusations. It’s the political equivalent of a toddler throwing his toys at other kids in the sandbox.

    Prez Clownshoes does whatever he pleases and no punishment or reprimand befalls him. Impeach?? Ha!! How about arrest this POS for dereliction of duties, treason and murder?

    I did not know it was illegal to talk in public about a sealed indictment. I regularly read in the newspapers about sealed indictments, the details of which are secret. That said, if what this former U.S. attorney is saying is true, then President Obama just violated the law of the land!!

    Impeach Obama, remove him, and get the country back in order! Why can Egyptians throw out their idiot president Morsi with mass demonstrations, but we cannot?
