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.”
