Former Florida Rep. Allen West said during a chat with “The Capitol Hill Show with Tim Constantine” that the House should draw up articles of impeachment against President Obama over his handling of the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl affair.

“We acquiesced to the demands of a terrorist organization,” he said, Breitbart first reported. “Without a doubt, this is an impeachable offense. This represents aiding and abetting the enemy, this is a high crime and misdemeanor, and the United States House of Representatives should draw up articles of impeachment on the president on this incident.”

He also addressed National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s recent claim that Mr. Bergdahl “served the U.S. with honor and distinction,” Breitbart reported.

“Desertion in a combat operation is a credible, punishable offense, and they’re going to have to bring those charges up against Bergdahl,” Mr. West said in the interview. “There is no way we can trust Susan Rice. … She is a delusional liar, that’s the only thing you can say.”
