White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty
As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn't wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals.
Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.
Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.
Obama's senior advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, as quoted by The Hill: "I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president. A lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility.”
Writing for Breitbart News earlier this month, Governor Palin made a Constitutional case for Obama's impeachment based in large part on the ongoing border crisis. "Without borders, there is no nation," Palin writes. "Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate."
In a Congressional meeting Friday, some House Republicans discussed the option of impeachment should the president continue to ignore the laws he is Constitutionally required to uphold.
