This Is Getting Serious

The House moved one step closer to filing a lawsuit against Obama when the Rules Committee voted 7-4 to send the proposal to the floor for a vote. Could an attempt impeach the president be far behind? “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,” said White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer. According to a new CNN/ORC poll, nearly two-thirds said they oppose impeachment, but 57 percent of Republicans, 35 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats support the idea.
