The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 3 - Paragraph 7

Judgement 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, judgement and punishment, according to law.

Our Founding Fathers, and the People living at the time our Constitution was written knew, and understood, that Common Law was the basis for all Laws in the Colonies. They were all very familiar with Common Law and its provisions. Because of this, other than the mention of Common Law in Article 7 of the Bill of Rights, no real Statement concerning Common Law was included in the Constitution. We, who are living now, not only don't understand the principles of Common Law, but have been indoctrinated into believing Common Law to be a bad thing. Those who do not want Common Law are:

It is our Common Law Courts that give us, the People, the ability to control our public servants to assure us that the government we established is really securing our unalienable rights.
