Tom Marino, GOP Congressman, Floats Idea Of Filing Criminal Charges Against Obama

Photo Credit: Tom Williams/CQ Roll CallRep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) revealed in a Thursday interview that he is exploring avenues by which members of Congress could try to pursue criminal charges against President Barack Obama.

Earlier this month, the Obama administration announced a delay in the implementation of an Affordable Care Act provision that will require businesses employing more than 50 people to provide them with health insurance. The delay, which puts off the requirement until 2015, drew much criticism from the GOP. The Treasury Department has since released a letter defending the decision as a means of providing “transition relief” for companies.

To say that Marino is critical of the decision may be an understatement. During an interview on local Scranton, Pa., station “94.3 The Talker,” the congressman slammed both the president for allegedly taking illegal action and Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to do anything about it.

“If the chief law enforcer of the country [Holder] will not enforce the law,” said Marino, “and the president decides to break the law because he doesn’t like it, there has to be another mechanism by which we in Congress can … see if there are criminal charges we can file.”

    Do it now. ..

    Should have been done a long time ago…which one do you want to file against….let’s see, how about bombing Libya without congressional authority for a starter and work down through Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, NSA and I am sure we can find some more crimes and misdeamnors.

    About time. Obama has circumvented the Constitution in so many ways and consorted with our enemies, refused to secure the borders and remove known criminal aliens from this country. In fact, he’s rewarded them and invited more to violate our laws!

    • gail2011

      Not to mention releasing over 2000 illegal aliens from prison or holding during sequester.

      • TexRancher

        Don’t forget the thousands of Palestinians he’s brought here on our bill including terrorists!

      • TheRealEvilGenius

        Gail, that was only in one city from one jail. They released over 10,000 violent criminals nation-wide. 2000 just came from Arizona jails…

    This is a good idea; however, a better one would be to sue
    Obama in civil court for all the money he has cost the taxpayer. Then sue him
    again for the lives of all those lost at Benghazi. Let’s make him have to pay
    us everything he earns for the rest of his life. Let’s take away all the money
    he has and let him live like the rest of us

  • Dempseycoleman

    good luck with that idea because John Boehner has not the balls
    to let that to happen to this great Regime

  • lonebear

    PLEASE for the sake of this country DO IT.

  • amiciLatinae

    Finally! A congressman who knows his responsibility as an elected official whose duty it is in the House of Representatives to manage fiscal policies of this nation. Absolutely file criminal charges against ANYONE who usurps power and violates the very foundation of a checks-and -balances government. It’s about time.

    How about known facts that he was and still may be using an illegal Social Security card….

    Or that maybe he had obtained Grants from our Government for his education illegally….either he is a foreign student or not but if he obtained funds and wasn’t that is fraud!

    We can’t get into the moral issues…to many and requires more space than here!

    Obama likes to hide behind his position, like a child behind a mothers apron. He hears things and knows what is happening…he just doesn’t see them. And if he does who’s to say otherwise! Like Fast and Furious…he signed the mandate but didn’t know where it would take him. 1 or more border guards killed and hundred of innocent Mexicans…did I do that?

    Or Benghazi he authorized the movement, but didn’t know the consequences…and was willing to allow 4 or more Americans to be killed rather than admit to being wrong!

    Or the shipment of fighter planes and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood…troops in Libya.

    Being Person in charge doesn’t mean you must give the direct order, but to suggest or imply, or voice an opinion…that is why “The Buck Stops Here”!!

    I wish we could make citizens arrest against Obama, Holder, Peloski, Reid, Clinton(s) both, several others that directly influenced the current economic situation of our Great Nation with their ill will regulations (which most likely came as the result of the highest bidder)!

    So arrest Obama and gang….ship them to gitmo and may God Bless America again!

    do it we are tired of waiting for someone to get rid of this clown and his crooks of and admin,

  • Linda

    YES,YES &YES ! obama should have been impeached long ago and tried for treason. His a– should be in jail for the rest of his life !

    • Amy Walker

      nah, we don’t want to pay to keep him in jail for life. Let’s try and convict him for high treason and then exile him and whole family for life, and send him out of the country without a penny and hust the clothes on his back including Michelle and daughters. They have taken everything they could get without a thought of the suffering going on around them. Let them live it for life in a foreign unfriendly country for a change.

  • Liberty1941

    If the failed Republicans were going to do anything, they would done this before the Muslim interloper was ever elected. Replace these clowns with the Constitution Party, and stop trying to do spine transplants on traitors.

  • SmithWinston6478

    Impeachment is NOT removal (reference the impeached Slick Willy/ Slithery Hillary). He’s a Trojan Horse saboteur bent on destruction after entering under false pretenses. Let’s hope that when the time comes, he goes peacefully.

  • Mickey Shook

    I just dont get it if anybody in this country breaks the law and many know they did break the law then why is he ‘obama’ not arrested like any body else would be?? nobody is above the law right?? we are supposed to be a nation that follows the rule of law right?? so why is he and others he has appointed in jail??
