Received a link from a friend on Facebook (who shall remain anonymous for security reasons) regarding the clandestine arming of ISIS ( Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) by the United States as part of its ongoing effort to prolong the civil war in Syria and overthrow the lawfully and duly re-elected government of President Bashar al-Assad.
The article quoted Senator Rand Paul who confirmed that the U.S. had ISIS as an ally in the U.S. war efforts against Syria, he however “omitted” the fact that ISIS also is an ally in the U.S. war on Iraq, waged with ISIS as a U.S. trained, financed and commanded proxy or mercenary force.*
In another interesting twist:
The article quotes a (unnamed) source close to former Lebanese PM Saad Hariri who indicated that “the U.S. Embassy in Ankara functions as headquarter for ISIS operations and that prominent U.S. citizens and members of the Atlantic Council are behind its war on Iraq.”

We contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Washington D.C. asking they investigate these claims of US officials within the Obama Administration covertly financing and providing material support for a terrorist organization, in violation of US law and the contact (who asked that his name not be used in this report) said (“off the record”) that the bureau will not investigate officials within the Obama Administration for political reasons and suggested I go straight to a member of Congress with this information and formally request a Congressional Inquiry into the fact of this case.
He quietly cautioned however that such an inquiry could easily reach as high as the President of the United States. And suggested that if evidence of a “crime” is committed the President could be impeached because ultimately he is the one who has “secretly authorized” the funding of rebels in Syria in the first place.

According to the US Constitution only the House of Representatives can impeach a president. Impeachment is something like an indictment, it is a formal accusation and not a conviction. After impeachment by the House of Representatives, the Senate tries the president and decides guilt or innocence.
Only Congress can impeach the president for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
The only two presidents who have been impeached (which happens in the House) have been Johnson and Clinton. The Senate then removes the president from office.
