Comment: a more accurate statement from the Congressman

(See in situ)


a more accurate statement from the Congressman

would have been "There are numerous precedents of not impeaching US presidents for violations of the US Constitution."

But anyway, considering Lankford's voting record in Congress, e.g., voting to keep the troops in Afghanistan in 2011, voting to extend the Patriot Act, etc., he really isn't a particularly great elected official himself, and unlike Obama who is going to have to leave office at the end of his term, Lankford can keep getting re-elected; it would probably be of more value placing energy on removing these terrible Congressmen than a lame duck president.
