Representative Goodlatte: There Are No Grounds to Impeach Obama

by Katherine Connell

Representative Bob Godlatte (R., Va.) does not believe President Obama has done anything that would merit impeachment under the Constitution.

“We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment,” Goodlatte, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, told George Stephanopoulos on This Week Sunday. “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the president of the United States,” Goodlatte continued. “He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that​.”

But, Goodlatte said, the president “is not enforcing the law” on immigration and a range of issues. He believes House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against the president is the appropriate response to President Obama’s lawlessness.
