National Review has a story today raising the prospect of President Barack Obama being impeached for his administration's response to the attack in Benghazi.
Saying that the administration "purposefully and willfully misled the American people," Representative Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told National Review that impeachment calls are likely to increase as frustration over the administration's reticence grows among House Republicans.
Chaffetz also aired the concern that White House staffers, in an attempt to keep the president from being judged too harshly, are hiding documents regarding the president's decisions on the attack, and the attack itself.
"They've released 100 emails, but there are thousands of documents that we still need to see. The truth gets colder as time goes on, so we need to stay vigilant," Chaffetz said.
Speaking Of Hiding Things
The Obama-Nixon comparisons have been aplenty in the last week, but the Washington Post's Bob Woodward said the spate of scandals facing the Obama administration are not enough yet to be the Watergate equivalent.
But speaking on Benghazi, Woodward did say this:
"If you read through all these emails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, 'Oh, let's not tell the public that there were warnings. And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, 'Oh, let's not tell this, let's not show this.' I would not dismiss Benghazi. It's a very serious issue."
