Denham: Impeachment? Maybe

Rep Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, refuses to rule out impeaching President Obama — for Benghazi, among other pretexts.

In a press release, The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee quotes Denham speaking to the North Valley Tea Party Club in August 2013:

“If our Commander in Chief that was reelected in this country decides to break the Constitution it is a challenge to hold him accountable. And he’s done it several times now.”

“When asked if he would support impeachment, Denham said: “Impeachment is a, is a very serious issue. I think that you have to prove that the leader of the free world has done something that is so far against American beliefs that, and this trust that he’s been sworn into that you remove him. You know I think that him trying to move beyond these phony scandals is something that opens the door for us to investigate further. IRS targeting people, targeting individuals, targeting political organizations is a huge issue that we’re going to hold him account on. But the biggest issue for me thus far in this presidency has been Benghazi […]So depending on how far these investigations go we could get into a scenario where the president has broken the law.”

The Clinton impeachment is when the American political system broke down. He hadn’t done anything impeachable; Republicans, starting their journey into radicalism, just wanted him out of office. Same deal here.
