Congressman Broun: There is ‘substantive information and evidence to impeach the President’
After Obama’s performance at the State of the Union last month, it’s encouraging to see that more members of Congress are being honest and open over the question of impeachment. We had yet another member of Congress say last Saturday that Obama qualifies for impeachment. It’s ironic that comments of truth are leaking out of the lips of politicians everywhere; even Rep Broun openly mentioned Obama’s impeachment despite the fact he’s facing a tough race for Senate.
Georgia Republican Rep. Paul Broun indicated Saturday he would support impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, when asked about it at a forum on Saturday.
Broun, who is running for Senate, appeared at a candidate forum hosted by the Gilmer County GOP and Gilmer County Tea Party on Saturday morning. According to a video obtained by The Daily Caller, a woman asked the candidates present whether or not they would support impeachment.
“Clinton was impeached for perjury. Obama has perjured himself on multiple occasions. Would you support impeachment if presented for a vote?” she asked.
In a statement provided to TheDC Monday afternoon, Broun emphasized that he was saying he would vote for impeachment if it came to a vote. “If House leadership brought an impeachment vote before the floor, then there would certainly be good reason for doing so, with substantive information and evidence to impeach the President”.
The swell of support by Congress to Impeach Obama is a natural result of Obama’s inability to understand and respect the checks and balances our founding fathers put in place to prevent tyranny. Congress is very put off over Obama prancing around with his Executive Powers as if he’s the only one with power and influence in D.C. The question is, does Congress retain enough power to put the President in line or is Barack correct in his assumption that checks and balances have been put into submission?
