Republican bulldog Rep. Trey Gowdy put the kibosh on the idea of impeaching President Obama during a nationally television Fox News interview, telling his broadcast audience that booting the commander-in-chief from his office would open the doors to something even worse —the ascension of Vice President Joseph R. Biden.
First, host Bill O’Reilly asked Mr. Gowdy what he thought of the argument made by Judge Andrew Napolitano — that Mr. Obama’s proposed executive orders to grant amnesty to millions of illegals would rise to the level of an impeachable offense, The Daily Caller reported.
“What about [that?] … That this is an impeachable situation because it does go against Congress making the laws, because the president is making a new law,” Mr. O’Reilly said. “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?”
Mr. Gowdy’s reply was both blunt and concise.
The former federal prosecutor from South Carolina said, The Daily Caller reported: “Have you met Joe Biden?”
He then went on to cite a number of reasons why impeachment would be folly.
