Matthew Corey, the Republican challenging Rep. John Larson (D-CT) in Connecticut, said Saturday that he believes President Obama should be impeached, according to the Bristol Press.

Corey said that Obama has violated the constitutional provision that gives Congress “all legislative powers” and said the president has been “breaking the oath of office.”

He also said he supported the House’s efforts to sue Obama for choosing “what parts of a law he wants to enforce.”

“How can we move forward as a nation if we have a commander in chief who picks and chooses what laws he thinks are necessary to enforce and what ones are not?” Corey asked, according to the Bristol Press.

Corey also accused Larson of using impeachment buzz to his advantage. He claimed that the Democratic congressman has been “putting on theatrics about the impeachment of President Obama and racing home to do fundraising.”
