Granting the House an un-Constitutional investigative power in search of impeachable offenses will allow the House’s majority to weaponize it against any President.
Judicial Misinterpretation That May Facilitate Fall Of The Republic.
In the heat of contested debate between the advocates of President’s Trump impeachment and his defenders, an issue of much larger importance than the fate of Mr. Trump’s presidency has evaded everyone’s attention:
If the pro-impeachment House majority has its way and keeps investigating the President for possible “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” as it pleases then how he, and future Presidents, who happened to be disliked by the House’s majority, are supposed to carry on their executive power vested in them by the Constitution?
Granting the House an un-Constitutional investigative power in search of impeachable offenses will allow the House’s majority to weaponize it against any President it doesn’t like. In particular, the said majority may easily overwhelm the President with endless inquiries and subpoenas to the point that he and the Executive Branch will not be able to fulfill their Constitutional duties. Such an obstruction of Presidential executive power, if and when it takes place, will likely weaken our country to the point that it may no longer resist the external and domestic threats. And the fall of the Republic may follow.
One does not have to look further than to current pre-impeachment efforts by the House of Representatives to see that the above possibility is likely to materialize.
