House Bill Called ‘Most Aggressive Move Toward Impeachment’

In an effort to draw a line in the sand against further executive actions by President Barack Obama, Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) is preparing to introduce a resolution defining the House of Representative’s understanding of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the Constitution’s standard for bringing impeachment proceedings.

“We are laying a red line. This is the Rubicon. They are forewarned: do not cross this line,” Yoho said in an interview.

“Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office” (Autographed) delivers what amounts to a rough draft of the articles of impeachment against Barack Obama — an indictment that goes well beyond today’s headlines about IRS-gate, Reportergate and Benghazi-gate.

The bill’s introduction is the most aggressive move toward impeachment by any House Republican. The tactic, while constitutional, has generally been shunned as counterproductive by the GOP even as outrage has grown over President Obama’s use of executive authority.
