According to reports, a California judge tentatively scheduled a trial for the end of January in a case that officially challenges Barack Obama’s eligibility to be the president of the United States. In a process that would skirt impeachment, the trial would answer questions as to whether the president is qualified under the requirements of the Constitution.
If the case is heard in the courtroom, it would mark the first time the dispute has been taken to open court, according to one of the attorneys working on the case. Although it has been a difficult path to get the case heard, it appears the trial is officially on the books. And it appears that there is a strong list of plaintiffs.
The judge did not make an immediate decision on a motion to grant discover, which would open Obama’s concealed records. Alternatively, the judge also did not rule to dismiss the case, commenting that there are legitimate constitutional concerns in the case, that need to be addressed and resolved.
The case would be the first time that the evidence would be heard in the court of law, as the proposal has previously been rejected by other states as well as the Supreme Court. The suit alleges that Obama is a citizen of Indonesia, and in fact, “possibly still citizen of Kenya, usurping the position of the president of the United States of America and the commander-in-chief.”
UPDATE – August 5, 2014: Even though the American News story is a few years old, I would like to emphasize that my point it that we should not be seeking impeachment or a lawsuit, but disqualifcation. Obama is clearly not qualified. His eligibility docs are proven fraudulent. Congress should be pushing this, not a district judge in California.
