Inhofe Suggests Obama May Be Impeached Over Benghazi


Calling last year’s deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya the “most egregious cover-up in American history,” Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) predicted Thursday that President Barack Obama will soon face calls of impeachment.

“Of all the great cover-ups in history — the Pentagon papers, the Iran-Contra, Watergate and all the rest of them — this … is going to go down as the most serious, the most egregious cover-up in American history,” Inhofe said during an appearance on The Rusty Humphries Show.

Inhofe then said he’s pleased that Benghazi has returned to the public consciousness.

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe later said.

When the host asked if he was referring to “impeachment,” the ranking member on the Senate Armed Services Committee confirmed that he was.
