Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.

Pfeiffer noted that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has a large following among Tea Party conservatives, has called for Obama’s impeachment and a large block of the GOP’s base favors it.

“I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president. A lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility,” he told reporters Friday at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor.

Pfeiffer said Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) decision to file a lawsuit against Obama over his use of executive actions increased the chance of impeachment proceedings in the future.

He said that possibility could become more likely if Obama takes executive action to halt the deportations of illegal immigrants who have strong ties to the United States, such as those who have family members who are U.S. citizens.

POLL: Do you consider Obama to be a weak President?

“I think Speaker Boehner, by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future,” he said.

Palin wrote an op-ed for Breitbart earlier this month calling for Obama’s impeachment because of his handling of the surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America on the Texas border, calling it the “last straw that makes the battered wife say ‘no mas.’

She has also criticized Boehner’s lawsuit as a weak move.

Boehner has pushed back against pressure from Palin and other conservatives.

“I disagree,” he told reporters this month.

get the senate and start impeachent for all laws not enforced and direlection of duties

Exactly, must take the Senate from the Socialist/Democrats FIRST, B/4 we can even begin this clean-up.  (Then the Rinos.)

With impeachment on-the-table it is very unlikely that our dear leader will not be open to scrutiny at every move towards a "pen," or a "phone!!!"

You know that Obama is skating on thin ice when Senator Mark Udall won't show up for a private fund raiser with Obama being the keynote speaker.  A year ago, Udall was all in and a staunch Obama supporter, now he doesn't want to be seen in public with BHO. What a difference a year makes....

But 3 out of every 4 democrats would still die for King Obama.  They are as guilty of all the wrongs as he is !

If you do this ! First move is to force the courts to open all of Barry's sealed records. IMHO that will produce a firestorm when the nation realizes, that again IMHO this charlatan is an imposter and not a US citizen ! Hence forth not eligible to be POTUS. Which means every law and executive order this fake has signed will be null and void !!! Now action two. The indictment of the demo-ratic party for allowing someone not a citizen to even run for the office of POTUS as IMHO again that is tantamount to TREASON and all in the Demo-ratic party members knowingly or unknowingly (You can be jailed for unknowingly giving aid to a conspiracy to over throw the USA.) involved jailed and never allowed near a public office again, loss of all bennies and paying back all salaries and perks given. Crush the Demo-rats for the next 50 years. My friends I know this may well lead to civil war but better now than give the communist left another chance to destroy us ! Which if they ever truly get power they will like Hitler start filling those FEMA camps with their political opponents. Then like Stalin begin the killing.

Terrific plan.  You didn't leave a stone unturned.  He needs to be incarcerated  first along with the VP, current senate majority leader and former speaker of the house.  Its obvious they knew he wasn't eligible.

I agree...anyone who has to have their records sealed has more than a forged BC to hide!!

Debera,

What ONE person cam seal, andother can UN-seal.  How is it done?  Computer hacker? Court Order?  Computer hacker?  Congressional order?  Computer hacker?  WELL PAID computer hacker?

WHERE IS EDWARD SNOWDEN WHEN WE NEED HIM

OK Mr President,If you do that one more time we'll impeach you,Ok Mr President if you do that one more time...With a big fat sure you will.Obama has done his homework so well on people in our government he can blackmail any one of them.

Where is the evidence that they are taking impeachment more seriously. All i see is they are using it for fundraising for the low information democrats as a scare tactic, saying Obama is a victim of abuse by the Republicans,

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
