One prominent House Republican had a ready-made one-liner when asked about the impeachment rumblings popping up among some of his colleagues as President Barack Obama prepares to take execution action on immigration.
“Have you met Joe Biden?” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the man tasked with overseeing the special Benghazi committee, told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly on Thursday, “is my response to that. So, no. Nobody is discussing impeachment except for pundits and commentators.”
“First of all, impeachment is a punishment. It’s not a remedy,” Gowdy said. “Second of all, the only people who want us to talk about impeachment are the president’s allies.”
Gowdy did, however, reference “the appropriations process” as a possible response to Obama’s actions.
