New Republican Whip Scalise Refuses to Rule Out Impeachment

On Fox News Sunday today, Republican Whip Steve Scalise repeatedly refused to rule out impeaching President Obama.

“The fact that the third-highest-ranking Republican in the House is refusing to rule out impeachment offers a stunning view of the extreme measures this Republican Congress will take to push their reckless partisan agenda,” said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel. “Republicans will spend the final week before their summer vacation plotting their lawsuit against the President, and now Scalise just made it clear that impeachment is absolutely on the table for House Republicans.”
