Skip to comments.Obama 'Birther' Conspiracy Theorist Orly Taitz Sues To Stop Second Impeachment Trial

A dentist and lawyer known for her past promotion of the "birther" conspiracy theory regarding former President Barack Obama has sued Vice President Kamala Harris and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to halt former President Donald Trump's impeachment.
Orly Taitz is suing to prevent the Senate from holding a second Trump impeachment trial more than a decade after she first made headlines for launching legal complaints in support of misinformation claiming that Obama was not born in the U.S., a bogus claim that Trump promoted for several years before becoming president.
The new lawsuit was filed Thursday on behalf of the Defend Our Freedoms Foundation, a group that Taitz founded. It claims that going through with the impeachment trial would be illegal since the Constitution states that the impeachment process can be used to remove a sitting president, while Trump already left office when President Joe Biden was inaugurated on Wednesday.

At least somebody is doing something
Why hasn’t Trump filed for declarative relief based on this argument ?
Wow. The issue of Obama’s birthplace is being brought back to the spotlight.
Only to discredit her as a kook
So tired of the birther smokescreen. Obama could’ve been born in Time Square and he still would not have been a natural born citizen. His father was a British royal subject for crying out loud.
Oh My God.
I thought she was dead.
She’s still alive and just as incompetent and crazy.
She needs a show on PBS or something.
And some dentistry commercials.
Orly Taitz! That’s a name I haven’t heard since the Obola era. Sounds like a place, not a person.
In the meantime, I really would like to see what’s up with this.
Anytime you see the words conspiracy theory you can pretty much bet that what is being belittled is true.
Just a couple of days ago I was wondering whatever happened to her. I don’t think I’ve heard her name in about a decade now.
Well, this should give the losers over at thefagblow.com a couple of months of discussion.
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.
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
"and", not "or"...
In computer programming, that's a dependency clause.
I think she is a kook. But her heart is in the right place.
Obama. the only president I’ve known who had an entire media correct what he, himself said. He says he was born in Kenya, then he wasn’t. He says his Muslim faith, but he wasn’t.
