Michigan's Republican National Committee committeemanDave Agema will be introducing a resolution featuring articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama during the RNC's January 13-15 meetings.
Dave Agema said that he will introduce the resolution of 48 criminal charges written by the North American Law Center to the RNC, and the resolution will call on House Republicans to begin the impeachment process.
"It's simply asking our House of Representatives...to abide by their oath of office and accomplish what they should do," said Agema.
Dave Agema said some of Obama's impeachable offenses include his executive orders on guns, illegal immigration, Syrian refugee program, Obamacare, gun-running, and spying on Congress and our allies.
"The way it works is one House of Representatives member puts in impeachment articles for the House and it starts the process," Agema said. "Recently, we didn't own the House and the Senate, but Republicans do now, and the purpose of it really is we're a nation of laws and separation of powers."
Dave Agema gave an simple explanation as to how the impeachment process would start. He said that one House member could write up the impeachment articles, which would then go to the House Judiciary Committee, which has 23 Republicans and requires only 20 votes to make it to the House floor. It would take 218 House members to pass, and there are 246 Republicans in the House. If the House votes to impeach Obama, then the Senate would serve as a jury and would require a two-thirds vote of present senators to remove the president from office.
Dave Agema also stated that he would expect to go after co-conspirators named in Obama's lawless actions, including Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and in the public setting of an impeachment trial Hillary’s presidential campaign would be negatively affected.
"It lets the president, Obama, know that we're not going to put up with his ability to go around the Constitution. Secondly, it warns any future president that he doesn't have that right either, and it encourages the base to get involved," Agema said.
The committeeman also said that the GOP owes this to its grassroots base.
"A lot of them have been disenfranchised by the lack of leadership and the lack of aggression to go after some of these things, especially when it comes to Obamacare and funding Planned Parenthood," Agema said.
