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

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
