Trey Gowdy: Impeachment is a very bad idea, ‘have you met Joe Biden?’

Damned if we do, and damned if we don’t!

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Thursday’s “O’Reilly Factor” that impeaching the president is a really bad idea.

“What about what Judge [Andrew] Napolitano raised?,” O’Reilly asked. “That this is an impeachable situation because it does go against Congress making the laws, because the president is making a new law. And the new law says that if you have children who are American citizens, even though you yourself are an illegal undocumented person, you can stay in this country. That supersedes the old law. Napolitano claims it’s unconstitutional and impeachable. Do you see anybody going down that road in the House?”

“Have you met Joe Biden?,” Gowdy answered.

The bone-chilling thought of Biden becoming the president wasn’t his only objection. Gowdy said the conversation about impeachment is “bait” that he won’t be taking.

“It’s a punishment, not a solution,” he said.
