Boehner: Impeachment Talk Is Democrat 'Scam'

Tuesday House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) accused the White House of running a “scam” by ginning up impeachment talk on which to fundraise.

Boehner said “This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president’s own staff, and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill,” adding “Why? Because they’re trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year’s election.”

He insisted, “We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans. It’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.”
