A second House Republican has suggested impeaching President Barack Obama, saying “all options should be on the table” in an interview posted Wednesday.
“It’s just one of those times in our history,” said Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.) said in an interview with the Florida political blog “The Shark Tank.” “We’re at this kind of breaking point.”
Radel was asked about Obama’s use of executive orders to bypass an often intractable Congress. The administration has identified 19 executive orders it may issue to crack down on gun violence. Most of the orders focus on stricter enforcement of existing laws or on improving communication between federal agencies and states.
Recently reelected Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has barely had a chance to get his feet wet in Congress again, after serving one term from 1995-1997. But already he's making bold threats to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama over gun control measures being sought in the wake of December's mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
In a statement released Monday, Stockman accused Obama of seeking an "unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic" in the president's recent suggestion that he was willing to undertake executive action toward to goal of reducing gun violence.
The U.S. Senate passed a bill on Friday that reauthorizes and extends the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, a law that was originally meant to retroactively grant legal immunity to the Bush administration and telecoms, along with temporary authorization to wiretap non-Americans inside the United States without first having to acquire a warrant.
The law was set to expire at midnight on Friday, but the Senate’s vote means it will almost certainly be extended through December 2017.
Before passing the extension by a vote of 73-23, lawmakers blocked amendments by Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Jeff Merkley (R-OR)
