ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT

A RESOLUTION.

Whereas, the Constitution provides that the Senate “shall have the sole Power to adopt and try Articles of Impeachment” and that civil officers of the Republic of Atlasia  “shall be removed from Office and disqualified from any office under the Republic of Atlasia for a period not exceeding two years" on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors; and

Whereas, Scott, Secretary of State of the Republic of Atlasia, has in fact committed a multitude of high crimes and misdemeanors in blatant disregard to the laws of Atlasia and his oath of office;

Be it resolved, that Scott, Secretary of State of the Republic of Atlasia, is hereby impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and is hereby subject to all constitutional penalties prescribed by the Constitution and that the attached articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Atlasian Senate; and

Be it further resolved that these articles of impeachment exhibited by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia be in the name of itself and of the people of the Republic of Atlasia, against Scott, Secretary of State of the Republic of Atlasia, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.


Article 1: ABUSE OF POWER

In his conduct while Secretary of State of the Republic of Atlasia—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of Attorney General of the Republic of Atlasia and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, Scott engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by Abusing The Power of his office by violating SB 112-31.

On May 15th, 2023 , Scott issued an order mobilizing the troops despite the fact the Republic of Atlasia has not been attacked and without the permission of the Governor in the South as well which is a clear violation of the POSSE COMITATUS PROTECTION ACT.
