Formal Articles of Impeachment

I have prepared these formal Articles of Impeachment as a Constitutional lawyer. They are in proper legal form and I believe all allegations are provable. They will be sent to Congress with annotations.

Resolution Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.


Resolved, That Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I


In his conduct while President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the executive branch to increase its power and destroy the balance of powers between the three branches of government that is established by the Constitution of the United States.


The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts:


(1)  Shortly after being sworn in for his first term as President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama began creating new departments and appointing Czars to oversee these departments. These Czars were never submitted to the United States Senate for approval as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution. In addition, these Czars and the Departments have budgets that are not subject to being controlled by Congress as provided for by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. He also made recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess.

(2)  Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that the President of the United States “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” Barack Hussein Obama, in violation of his oath of office has repeatedly ignored this Constitutional mandate by refusing to enforce laws against illegal immigration, defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and refusing to enforce Federal voting laws.


(3)  Article 1 of the Constitution establishes the legislative branch of the U.S. government and sets forth the powers of the Senate and House of Representatives to make laws. These powers are exclusive and the Constitution does not grant the President the power to either make laws or amend them on his own. Barack Hussein Obama has ignored these provisions and made or changed laws by either issuing unconstitutional executive orders or instructing governmental departments to take illegal and unconstitutional actions. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Ordering the Environmental Protection Agency to implement portions of the Cap & Trade bill that failed to pass in the U.S. Senate.
  2. B.   Ordering implementation of portions of the “Dream Act” that failed to pass in Congress.
  3. C.   Orchestrating a government takeover of a major part of the automobile industry in 2009.
  4. D.   Ordering a moratorium on new offshore oil and gas exploration and production without approval of Congress.
  5. E.   Signing an Executive Order on March 16, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch extraordinary powers to control and allocate resources such as food, water, energy and health care resources etc. in the interest of vaguely defined national defense issues. It would amount to a complete government takeover of the U.S. economy.
  6. F.    Signing an Executive Order on July 6, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch the power to control all methods of communications in the United States based on a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.
  7. G.  Signing an Executive Order on January 6, 2013 that contained 23 actions designed to limit the individual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
  8. H.  Amending portions of the Affordable Healthcare Act and other laws passed by Congress without Congressional approval as required by Article 1 of the Constitution.


Article II


(1) Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that from time to time the President “shall give to Congress information on the State of the Union….” Implicit in this is an obligation for the President to be truthful with the Congress and the American people. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office and the requirements of the Constitution by willfully withholding information on important issues or actively taken part in misleading the Congress and the American people. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   Using Executive privilege to block Congress from getting documents relating to the DOJ’s Operation Fast and Furious and the death of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry.
  2. B.   Had members of his administration provide false information about the act of terrorism committed in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and refusing to allow the State Department and other federal agencies to cooperate in the Congressional investigation.
  3. C.   Falsely labeled the mass murder of American soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas as “workplace violence” instead of the act of Islamic terrorism it was.
  4. D.   Falsely labeling the IRS targeting of conservative and Christian groups as a “phony” scandal and refusing to order an active pursuit of the investigation into who was ultimately responsible.
  5. E.   Refusing to order an independent investigation of the actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ in targeting the phone records of members of the news media.
  6. F.    Telling the American people on a television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of Americans when the facts prove otherwise

(2) The oath of office of the President of the United States requires him to             preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. This obviously includes what may be the most important part of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. Barack Hussein Obama has repeatedly violated his oath of office by seeking to limit both the individual rights and the rights of the States guaranteed in the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.    Having the Department of Health and Human Services order religious institutions and businesses owned by religious families to provide their employees free contraception and other services that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This is being done under the auspices of the Affordable Health Care Act and violates the religious freedom clauses of the First Amendment.  
  2. B.    Having the military place restrictions on the religious freedom of Chaplains and other members of the military in order to favor gay rights advocates and atheists in violation of the First Amendment.
  3. C.    Having the military place restrictions on the freedom of speech of members of the military and the civilian employees of the DOD in violation of their rights under the First Amendment.
  4. D.    Using Executive orders and government agency actions to limit Second Amendment rights. This includes actions by the Veterans Administration to disarm American veterans without due process as required by the Fifth Amendment.
  5. E.    Having the National Security Agency intercept and monitor the private communications of millions of Americans without a court order and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
  6. F.     Joining with foreign governments in lawsuits against sovereign U.S. states to prohibit them from enforcing immigration laws. This is in violation of the Tenth Amendment.
  7. G.   Filing suits under the Voting Rights Act against sovereign U.S. states to prevent them from enforcing Voter ID laws despite rulings by the Supreme Court upholding these laws. This is another violation of the Tenth Amendment and the balance of powers.

(3) Under Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of the United States military and as such is responsible for using them in a manner that best serves the national security of the United States and protects our soldiers from unnecessary risks and harm. Barack Hussein Obama has violated his oath of office in this regard. Specific actions include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. A.   In the name of  “political correctness,” he imposed unnecessary and dangerous rules of engagement on our troops in combat causing them to lose offensive and defensive capabilities and putting them in danger. Many American service personnel have been killed or wounded as a result of this policy.
  2. B.   Releasing the identity of American military personnel and units engaged in dangerous and secret operations such as the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy Seal team 6.
  3. C.   Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war. Yet, without consulting Congress President Obama ordered the American military into action in Libya.

In all of this, Barack Hussein Obama has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, Barack Hussein Obama, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.











Go Back

President Trump has been in office for 8 weeks. The level of bias against the President is unprecedented. As he takes action to restore sovereignty, and deport criminal illegal aliens who were imported by BHO have been blocked by all manner of fake news, false and violent demonstrations by paid protesters... And now, Obama wants to live in DC, to continue his shadow government by remaining appointees that started when Obama was lame duck, using intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign. Mayors are leading sanctuary cities, effectively creating war zones on US soil. The breakdown of separation of powers, and lawless elected officials must be recognized and eliminated. Young people have been indoctrinated with ultra-liberal ideals, unaware of the destruction they facilitate. News must be restored to journalistic ethics.


Does Mr. Connell plan on submitting impeachment proceedings against the congress of the united states as well?

From what I have experienced they have done most of these things as well.


Impeachment is not the right way to go about this. Impeachment just gives credibility to Obama's presidency. The way to do this properly is to charge Congress with breach of their oaths of office as they have ALL failed to protect and defend the US Constitution against Obama.

Obama does not meet natural born criteria as stated be the 1st US Congress, agreeing with the definition per Law of Nations, as well as the definition set forth in SCOTIS precedent in Minor v. heppersett among others.

Congress is guilty of violating their Oath of Office and can be arrested for this even in chambers. The current Supreme Court members are guilty of not ensuring a redress of grievances by the citizens, and the president is ineligible, rendering every paper signed as null and void.

THIS is how we get rid of Obama. THIS is how we begin to claim the Constitution.



Great News! Finally someone had the nads to do this! It needs to happen quickly! He is ruining our country! We do not want to be an Arab acting country! He is a traitor. Islamic Trojan Horse!


OMG...I am so very happry to meet you Mr. Connelly! Thank OUR FATHER GOD there are still men such as yourself left in this OUR ONCE GREAT (before BHO) period! Sir, I want you to know...I can't do much but I can keep you in my daily prayers and this I will promise to do! Reading the article about you and what your life is about and is...Brought tears to my eyes! May Our Father God send his ANGELS to Guide, Comfort and PROTECT you! Sir, if I can leave you with one thought...Please be careful...Once again, THANK YOU from my heart! Thank You!

As I understand it, impeachment requires only a majority in the House as long as a quorum is present. However, it takes 67 senators (2/3)* to get a conviction, and a conviction is required to remove Obama from office (using constitutional means, that is).
*The Senate now has about 53 Democrats (including the socialist and independents that vote Obama), and only 47 Republicans, many of which are RINOs.
In other words, without a Senate conviction, Obama stays in office. If conviction fails, the attempt to remove him would turn into a fiasco like the Monica Lewinski/Clinton mess, which did not get rid of Clinton. Let’s remember that Clinton was responsible for the housing bubble (sub-prime loans) that burst in 2008 and the deaths of all children massacred in "Gun Free Zones", but those impacts were only felt long after Clinton was out of office.
In addition, if Clinton had been removed from office, we would have ended up with Al Gore as president, and maybe for the following 10-11 years (think hard about that one).
If Obama is removed we get Biden, which might be worse (or better, but most likely would be more of the same, piled higher and deeper.
Getting back to Obama, since Boehner knows that the odds of getting 67 Senate votes are currently less than zero, don't look for impeachment to be put on the table in the House unless about 15-20 Democrats clearly signal that they will vote for convicting Obama (I'm allowing for a few 'Nay' votes by RINOs as well).
Having said all this, it is still a good idea to have the impeachment ready, because no one knows the future, and it is conceivable that there will be implosions and explosions that scare Democrat senators into voting for their political survival.


Well, it’s a nice one, I have been looking for. Thanks for sharing such informative stuff.


Since these Articles of Impeachment were posted, there have been more violations by this President. I suggest these Articles be updated and handed to Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Louie Gohmert and Trey Gowdy


"Where there is smoke there is fire". This administration is a virtual forest fire in regards to Obama trashing our Constitution.
