But they surely had the power to remove the elected Commander in Chief, by impeachment. A qualified majority should have such powers, as given in the very Constitution of that nation.
And the Constitution of a state has to be above the privileges of their elected politicians. The duty of an elected lawmaker is to uphold the Constitution, and the constitutional rights of the people.
Democracy has its limits. There can be no justification for any attack on the Constitution it self. That is why elected leaders are called to give an oath to defend the Constitution.
The reason for impeaching a elected leader can simply be lies and cheating, like in the example of Bill Clinton.
If you serve a foreign power there should never be given any benefit of doubts. The Commander in Chief should surely be removed ASP.
President Obama has bowed down to the King of Saudi Arabia. But the US Senate and the American people are sleeping. The Knesset in Jerusalem is awake and on the alert.
They have to be. The state of Israel will be attacked from all sides. Surely also from within. Both from apostate liberal Jews, and Jihad promoters among the Israeli Arabs.
