Skip to comments.GOP Sen. Inhofe: Obama Could Be Impeached Over Benghazi 'Cover-Up'
Posted on 05/10/2013 1:44:35 PM PDT by drewh
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) suggested that President Obama could be impeached over what he alleged was a White House cover-up after last years attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Thursday with The Rusty Humphries Show that impeachment would become an issue soon over the greatest cover-up in American history.
People may be starting to use the I-word before too long, Inhofe said.
The I-word meaning impeachment? Humphries asked.
Yeah, Inhofe responded.
Of all the great cover-ups in history the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them this ... is going to go down as most egregious cover-up in American history, Inhofe said.
When Humphries suggested that the Democratic-controlled Senate would not impeach the president, Inhofe said that was true. He said that Benghazi would "endure" and impeachment could come after the 2014 midterm elections, when Republicans hope to retake control of the upper chamber.
Republicans have accused the Obama administration of changing the talking points about last years attack in Benghazi for political gain in the heat of the 2012 presidential election.
Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate there.

The Senate might not have a choice but to impeach, they ARE NOT going to go down with a sinking ship. I think we have only seen and heard a small portion of what is known about Benghazi. I know many think the Republicans in DC are idiots, but there are some very brilliant legal minds leading this charge. I think they have something that they are holding back, giving the Obama liars rope, making them commit to their lies.
Technically, but realistically it starts with Walter Cronkite and since he's a dead democrat, it ain't going to happen (although I'm sure he's still voting in each election).
When impeachable crimes are committed, the true statesman should step up, and every member of the legislature should formally be put on record as to where he or she stands.
Impeachment is by its nature a political process, not a legal one. It must proceed on principle if the political will exists, and the President will not resign for the good of the country.
NEVER, EVER GOING TO HAPPEN . . .
The media has already circled the wagons and they are dedicated to protecting Obama’s ass and Hillary’s ass at all costs. They will be relentless in their continued failure to devote time, attention, and dedication to a story that so needs to be told.
The media is lower than pond scum. As I have often said in previous posts, Unless or until the lame-stream media gives the story legs, it, and impeachment attempts will go nowhere.
Obama ain’t goin nowhere but the next Golf course or the new Reggie Love hideaway!
Don’t impeach the sleazebag, use it to belittle and cripple Obama as the cult leader of Democrats. Use it to make fun of Democrats, and their penchant for turning their leaders into untouchable demigods. Use the Benghazi tragedy to smear the cult media whenever they try to cover up leftist treachery.
Glad to see impeachment being talked about as an option. We do have laws to remove bad leaders, but it doesn’t seem like we have the courage to use them anymore. I also think a couple well chosen recall campaigns at the national level would go a long ways toward straightening out a lot of these arrogant congressmen and senators. Right now they only give a crap if their election is coming up soon. It wasn’t all that long ago that California recalled a really bad Democrat governor. I applaud Colorado for trying to recall 4 of their state legislators over bad gun control votes, and I hope they are successful. I would support a lot more recalls of politicians, and impeachment of more judges too. Too many of our leaders have lost their fear of the public they are supposed to serve. We have ways to fire these bad leaders if we had the will to do it.
In the words of Hendix “fire all of your guns at once...”
Strictly speculation at this point.....but everything seems to point to the possibility of a hit.....Why did State gut security in several stages?..Who knew about secret gunrunning?..Who was privy to it?...Who could testify to it?......We now know that the POTUS and SOS lied as to why it happened! (video)...Hence...What were they trying to hide?....

Bog Obama and his gun grabbing, open borders agenda down for the next four years.
Demonstrate to as many people as possible, what a scoundrel Obama is.
Try to get the Republicans to impeach in the House. If that succeeds, make Democrats and RINOs go on record as voting against removal.
After 4 years, maybe a narrow majority elects a non Marxist in the next election.
I would agree, if I could name a statesman in the Congress.
If impeachment is called for, well sure, go ahead, but it will not accomplish anything except garner sympathy for the president and drive the limp-wristed, like Lindsey Graham, to a more cowardly position. Hasn’t hurt him much.
Thanks. I knew that but said Hendix anyway. How about “Hey Joe where you going with that gun in your hand?”.
Impeachment means nothing after the events of December 19, 1998. Bill Clinton made it into an award of sorts; he is revered worldwide. There was no balm in Gilead and no shame in impeachment. The American people can’t even define the word.
The Senate cannot impeach; only the House can. If the House impeaches, the Senate “tries” the impeachment. But the vote would be known even before the “trial”” not guilty no matter what. And the American people would cheer the verdict if they understood.
With THIS Senate? I doubt it...
Maybe this will help too. It’s 3 hours long, but please, don’t miss it. Watch it clear through the end! Bengazi and this incident have the same signatures!
Don’t worry, Boehner will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
