HOUSE REPUBLICANS SCHEDULE OBAMA IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS
Monday, 14 October 2013
Republicans in the House of Representatives have scheduled impeachment proceedings against President Obama, claiming his inability to halt the federal government shutdown makes him unfit for office.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann introduced a resolution to impeach Obama this morning and referred the matter to the House Judiciary Committee. Senior aides close to judiciary chairman Bob Goodlatte say hearings will begin Thursday.
“I think it’s high time President Obama be held accountable for his crimes,” explains Bachmann, “For two weeks now, vital government services have been disrupted, federal workers have gone without pay and national memorials have been closed – all because of the president’s refusal to negotiate over Obamacare.
“This isn’t just poor leadership. The Obama administration is corrupt to the core. The scandals surrounding the IRS, Benghazi, Fast in the Furious and Solyndra have shown us this cabal will do anything to stay in power.
