It was interesting, okmanders. He actually talked about Bush and the Patriot Act and how horrible that was. Napolitano isn't always that far right. He speaks about this kind of thing going back to the founding of our government and country, that our framers while protecting us with the constitution almost inherently seemed to want to work against it.

According to Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says.."The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."
According to Constitutional Lawyers..High Crimes and Misdemeanors" are (1) real criminality -- breaking a law; (2) abuses of power; (3) "violation of public trust" as defined by Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist Papers. In 1970, then Representative Gerald R. Ford defined impeachable offenses as "whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history."
