Gingrich: Obama's DOMA Move Sounds Impeachable To Me (VIDEO)



"I think first you ought to communicate -- I mean, look, I don't think these guys set out to start a Constitutional crisis. I think they set out do do something for their allies in the gay community and they thought was clever. I think they didn't understand the implication of having a president personally suspend a law is clearly unconstitutional."

Gingrich said "the first remedy" for Obama's unconstitutional move "is for the Congress to confront him." The first round of confrontation, Gingrich said, should include the Congress "threatening to zero out" the budget at the Attorney General's office until Obama agrees to drop his DOMA decision.

Just a few hours after the interview went up, Team Gingrich sent this statement to reporters:

Congress has every responsibility to demand President Obama live up to his constitutional obligations, but impeachment is clearly not an appropriate action.
