GOP: We are not considering impeachment.
Seriously, you clowns should be embarrassed.
Despite Speaker's (and Jeff J.'s) Claims to the Contrary, Dozens of Republicans Irresponsibly Float Impeachment
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK): Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Thursday with "The Rusty Humphries Show" that impeachment would become an issue soon over the "greatest cover-up in American history." "People may be starting to use the I-word before too long," Inhofe said. "The I-word meaning impeachment?" Humphries asked. "Yeah," Inhofe responded. [The Hill, 5/10/13]
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK): According to Tulsa World, at a convention in Muskogee, Okla., Coburn said Wednesday that the president was "getting perilously close" to the Constitutional standard for impeachment. He also called the Obama administration lawless and incompetent, the news site reported, although he acknowledged the president as a "personal friend." [Politico, 8/22/13]
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): "It's going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash," Graham said. "There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that." [The Hill, 6/4/14]
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC): "There are a lot of things people say, 'Are you going to impeach the president over that?' - No. But this? This is catastrophic," continued Scott. "This jeopardizes the credibility of our nation if one man can usurp the entire system set up by our founding fathers over something this significant." [Huffington Post, 7/6/11]
Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA): "Not a day goes by when people don't talk to us about impeachment. I don't know what rises to that level yet, but I know that there's a mounting frustration that a lot of people are getting to and I think Congress is going to start looking at it very seriously." [Huffington Post, 7/16/14]
Rep. Steve King (R-IA): Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn't have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment. [Breitbart, 7/26/14]
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX): In a "WND exclusive," the rightwing site reported that after Stockman toured a border crossing at the Rio Grande on Friday, he realized, "President Obama is begging to be impeached." [Salon, 7/27/14]
