House Republican Kerry Bentivolio says “it would be a dream come true” to write an impeachment bill for President Obama, and claimed that’s he already met with lawyers about the prospect — though he so far doesn’t have enough evidence.
“If I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true,” Bentivolio, R-Mich., said at a town hall meeting, as Buzzfeed first reported. “I stood 12 feet away from the guy and listened to him. I couldn’t stand being there, but because he is president I have to respect the office. That’s my job. I respect the office.”
“Until we have evidence, you’re going to become a laughing stock if you’ve submitted the bill to impeach the president because, No. 1, you’ve got to convince the press,” he continued. “There are some people out there no matter what Obama does he’s still the greatest president they’ve ever had. That’s what you’re fighting.”
