Fringe Tea Party Groups Organizing ‘National Impeach Obama Week’

August 7, 2014 10:53 a.m.

Now that the House has approved a lawsuit against President Obama and impeachment cries have increased, a few conservative groups have put together “National Impeach Obama Week.”

The groups are organizing protests during the week of August 23 to call for Obama’s impeachment, according to a blog post by activist Robert Ogden on the conservative blogging site, Western Journalism.

“Gerald Ford said after the Nixon was forced to resign under threat of impeachment that an ‘impeachable offense’ is whatever the Congress will vote for at a given time. We are not here to argue about what is impeachable, but to demand that this lawless, subversive and anti-American president be removed from office,” the organizers wrote on the Impeach Obama Week website.

The groups offer a list of Obama’s impeachable offenses and call on other activists to organize rallies during the last week of August.

Only a few groups have endorsed the impeachment week so far, including the Tea Party Patriots of Brookhaven in New York and the Ventura County Tea Party in California.
