Steve King Brings Up the ‘I’ Word


Representative Steve King (R., Iowa) didn’t actually say the word “impeachment,” but outlined that executive action on immigration should be a trigger for Congress to consider the process.

“None of us want to do the thing that’s left for us as an alternative,” King told Fox News Sunday. “I think Congress has to sit down, have a serious look at the rest of this constitution, and that includes that ‘i’ word that we don’t want to say.”

He clarified that he hopes the president doesn’t put Congress in a position to explore the possibility of impeachment. “I only say that now on this program because I want to encourage the president, ‘Please don’t put don’t put America into a constitutional crisis — please don’t do that,’” King said.
