ROGER SIMON: New Benghazi Emails Mean Obama Impeachment Trial Must Be Launched.

For me, the worst part was sending a filmmaker to jail for no reason other than self-protection at election time.

Justice in Obama’s America — it’s what’s convenient for the narrative at the moment.

I don’t think anyone will impeach Obama because (1) He’s black, and impeaching the first black President is too fraught; (2) Another impeachment so soon after Clinton might set a pattern; and (3) President Biden. But I was serious when I called for him to resign over the Nakoula arrest. It was a transparent case of political scapegoating and a complete abrogation of Presidential responsibility. In itself, it indicated an unfitness to serve, and subsequent revelations have merely underscored that fact. For the same reason, of course, I didn’t expect him to resign.

But if impeachment isn’t going to happen, that’s no reason not to put the principals under oath at Congressional hearings. The truth should be brought out, in all its ugliness.
