GOP Talks Impeachment

Ben Johnson of The White House Watch reports, July 9, 2011, that Obama’s threat to bypass Congress and raise the debt ceiling has stirred significant talk of impeachment — and not just on talk radio. Republican Congressman Pete Olson of Texas has confirmed some of his colleagues are talking about initiating impeachment hearings.

Scott Keyes of ThinkProgress.org asked Rep. Olson: “Congressman Tim Scott of South Carolina yesterday in a town hall said if President Obama were to just ignore the debt ceiling, then he might be favoring bringing up articles of impeachment. Is that something that you’ve heard discussed much among your colleagues?”

Olson replied, “A little bit,” then quickly pivoted to repeating talking points about the debt ceiling. So Think Progress’s Lee Fang followed up: “So Congressman Scott, is he just a lonely voice or are there a large number of people who are talking about this?”

Olson answered, “He’s not a lonely voice.”

Congressman Olson’s statement confirms that a number of Congressmen are discussing a motion to remove Barack Obama from office. Tim Scott is not the first member of the present Congress to raise impeachment. There are other examples:

  1. The GOP doesn’t even have the balls to defund Obamacare.

  2. The minute we let Obama get away with raising the debt ceiling is when we will no longer have a president. We will have a king.
