House GOPer: Obama Could Be Impeached For Syria Strike Without Approval


Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) told the Washington Times Tuesday that the House could impeach President Obama if he authorizes a military strike in Syria without congressional approval.

“I think he’s breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval,” Hunter said. “And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.”

Obama has said he believes he could authorize a strike without congressional approval, but has decided to seek it anyway.
