'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution': Republican Representative says there's 'probably' enough votes in the House to impeach Obama

  • Republican Rep. Lou Barletta said Monday that President Barack Obama would 'probably' lost an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives
  • 'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution, and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances,' the Pennsylvania lawmaker told a local radio host
  • After the Democratic National Committee attacked Barletta, his communications direction revised and extended the congressman's comments and said that Barletta thinks taking a vote to impeach the president would be 'harmful' 
  • ‘Could that pass the House? Probably. Would the Senate ever convict? Certainly not,' he said on behalf of his boss

President Barack Obama has acted so unlawfully that he 'probably' wouldn't survive an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, Republican Rep. Lou Barletta told a radio host on Monday.

'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution, and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances,' the Pennsylvania lawmaker told News Radio 910 WSBA personality Gary Sutton yesterday.

'The problem is, what do you do?' Barletta continued. 'For those that say impeach him for breaking the laws or bypassing the laws — could that pass in the House? It probably could.'

'Is the majority of the American people in favor of impeaching the president? I’m not sure about that.'

'I don't think so,' the Pennsylvania radio host can be heard telling Barletta in audio of their conversation captured by Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczyinski.

Barletta made the comments during a discussion on illegal immigration after Sutton argued that the president wasn't 'faithfully executing the laws of this country.'

'Well we have a president that has taken this to a new level,' Barletta said of Obama's actions before explaining how he thinks impeachment proceeding would hypothetically play out in the House.
