Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said Monday President Obama’s killing of American-born Anwar al-Awlaki could be an impeachable offense.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in Manchester, NH about last week’s killing, Paul said impeachment would be “possible,” but that he wants to know more about how the administration “flouted the law.” He called Obama’s action an act of “tyranny.”
“I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction. We have just totally disrespected the Constitution”
Rep. Ron Paul’s agreed with the civil libertarians who’ve criticized the targeted killing of an American citizen without public due process.
