Sen. Inhofe: 2014 GOP Senate win could lead to Obama’s impeachment

U.S. Sen. James Inhofe predicted this week that President Obama could ultimately face impeachment over what he said was “the greatest cover-up in American history.”

Appearing on “The Rusty Humphries Show” Thursday, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said, “Of all the great cover-ups in history — the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them — this … is going to go down as most egregious cover-up in American history,” Inhofe said.

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe told Humphries.

However, Inhofe warned, impeachment won’t happen unless Republicans gain control of the Senate in 2014.

Inhofe said “Benghazi would ‘endure’, and suggested “impeachment could come after the 2014 midterm elections” with a GOP win, the Hill reported.

Former presidential candidate Gov. Mike Huckabee also predicted Obama’s impeachment over the Benghazi cover-up on his radio show last week.

The Hill reported Huckabee’s comments:

I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term,” Huckabee said. “I know that puts me on a limb, but this is not minor.”

“When a president lies to the American people and is part of a cover-up, he cannot continue to govern,” he added. “And as the facts come out, I think we’re going to see something startling. And before it’s over, I don’t think this president will finish his term unless somehow they can delay it in Congress past the next three and a half years.”

    Americans are hoping and praying that this really happens. He has done enough to this country, all bad, and he hates America, so he MUST GO!

      You are an IDOIT! Who are you to say he hates America? This is just unsubstantiated bull you racist, sore loser rep and tea party patriots like to spread! Where were you when Bush let 1,833 people vanish in hurricane Katrina because he made friend Michael Brown director of Fema. This guy doesn't know is ass from as hole in the ground. Now he's talking smack on Obama! Pleeeease!

    Much as I'd like to see 0bama run out of town on a rail, I don't see it happening.

    There is no way he can dig up all of the dead people who voted for him, so they can defend him, IMPEACH……….

    • Anne

      You must be confused with all the people that died under Bush admin 1, 833 in Hurricane Katrina alone! Private party volunteers like Walmart, Sean Penn, ect where there helping out before Fema got there!

    We can only HOPE that the media does NOT brush this under the rug any longer!And the White House press core continues to hold the administrations feet to the fire,not only for Benghazi but on EVERYTHING which is their JOBS to do.

  • Brandon

    We had 13 attacks on consulate offices under Bush, over 100 people died where was this anger then? You guys are idiots, the GOP lost the popular vote by 5 million, and the democrats also gained in the senate and had over a million more votes in house races but didn't gain seats due to gerrymandering. You lost get over it, people didn't care about Benghazi then, they don't care now, they sure as hell wont care in 2 or 4 yrs. 4 people died, its tragic but not a conspiracy, so Obama was slow to call it a terror attack that doesn't make it a cover up.

  • Orion Vega

    So the fact that YOUR president received 3 notifications of a potential attack and did nothing isn't an cover up

    It takes a 2/3 vote of the U.S. Senate to convict in an impeachment trial. Therefore, a majority of 51-53 GOP Senators which is a realistic post-2014 target, is not enough.

  • Doug Hanks

    If Republicans could do the math they wouldn't lose the Presidency so badly.

  • Nancy

    IMPEACH!!!!! Great – I only hope there is a USA in 2014.
