Impeach Obama? No Way, Says McCarthy
Kevin McCarthy, the new House majority leader, just took impeachment of the president off the table. “When people ask me” about impeachment, McCarthy said, “I say, ‘Have you met Joe Biden?’ But seriously,” he added, “the only ones talking about that are Democrats, and they’re doing it because they want to make it political. If you really look at what we’re talking about, we’re talking about bringing back the three co-equal branches. It’s not a lawsuit about an individual. It’s about an administration.” Of course, McCarthy’s got to push the House’s lawsuit against Obama, which is a way to do something without actually having to do something. We’re not advocating impeachment, either – not because it’s not legitimate but because it’s not politically viable and, like it or not, that matters. That said, it’s not wise to take it off the table.
