Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) said in a radio interview that he thinks that a vote to impeach President Obama “probably could” pass in the House of Representatives.
Rep. Barletta was on the Gary Sutton radio show on Monday when he said of Obama: “He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances. The problem is, you know, what do you do? For those that say impeach him for breaking the laws of bypassing the laws, you know, could that pass in the House? It probably, it probably could. Is the majority of the American people in favor of impeaching the president? I’m not sure.”
Gary Sutton replied, “I don’t think so.” The radio host added that it puts representatives into political purgatory, so it’s important for Republicans to be heard with plain talk so that people get the message.
