Brody File Video Exclusive: Kevin McCarthy Says Impeaching President Obama Is Off The Table


In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, new House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy tells CBN News that any potential attempt to impeach President Obama should be taken off the table.

“"Oh yes,” McCarthy tells me during a visit with him in his home district of Bakersfield, California. “When people ask me that, I say, ‘Have you met Joe Biden?’”

Instead of impeachment, McCarthy supports Speaker John Boehner’s constitutional overreach lawsuit against the president.

David Brody: The impeachment word has been bandied about. Do you think that is frivolous and should be taken off the table? Right now. Right here?"

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy: Oh yes. When people ask me that, I say ‘have you met Joe Biden? But seriously…

David Brody: Hey, this is standup comedy.

McCarthy: The only one talking about that are democrats and they’re doing it because they want to make it political. If you really look at what we're talking about, we're talking about bringing back the three co-equal branches. It's not a lawsuit about an individual. It's about an administration.

The Brody File is working on a national profile of the Majority Leader that will air on The 700 Club in early September. What you saw above was just a sneak peak.

Besides the interview with McCarthy, we also speak to his wife Judy, a woman who gives new meaning to the expression, “marrying up.”

We talk faith and politics with both of them. Hope you’ll tune in.

I think Mr. Obama deserves to be impeached, but it clearly is not going to happen. Mr. McCarthy is wise not to tilt at windmills - as he states, the Democrats desparately want this to happen as one of the very few political maneuvers that would let them resurrect a moribund administration.

We know impeachment is off the table, you are getting what you want from O'bwana without taking a hit in the elections. In other words, he is giving you de facto amnesty.

I will vote accordingly, and everyone I know will do the same. You are not fooling anyone.

The essential political conflict we are witnessing in the US today is between we Americans who wish to conserve our country and its Christian morality, and post-Americans--consisting of white liberals, nonwhites, and immigrants--who wish to remake our nation in their own image.

The post-Americans are represented ably and enthusiastically by the Democrats, while we Americans have no representation. God help us, because nobody else is.

McCarthy cannot take impeachment off the table because it's locked into the Constitution as a means of removing a despot.

Biden may often have one of his size fourteens in his mouth, but at least does not hate the country as the current Caligula does.

It's off the table until after November. Then we strike. By then everything will be such a lawless mess at the hands of this President and AG The People will demand it. Nothing can revive the Democrat base, not even the "table on" talk.

This is probably the most evil administration that out Constitutional Republic of American has ever faced. Obama should never have qualified to be President and it appears that both of the main political parties remain in collusion to keep him there. There are some Republicans that obviously see the danger in this, but they are too few and too weak against the majority to prevail. If our Constitution, and our Nation are to be saved, the American people will have to act to save it, because the Federal Government has gone to far down the path of corruption to change course and save itself now. A lie doesn't become truth, a wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good just because a majority says so. Christians have been far to silent for too long and we need to speak up and take action as the founding fathers of our Nation did. Organize and hound your representatives by all means possible to do the right thing! Call out the lies and hold officials accountable!

The Communist Party USA, (aka Democrat Party) is doing every thing they can, to goad the Republicans into initiating impeachment proceeding against the Communist Dictator, including giving amnesty to 5 million foreign illegal invaders, which would, without a doubt, be an impeachable offense.

Obama is so desperate to keep Harry Reid running the Senate that he is willing to be impeached, and hope that people will take sympathy on the little black boy who is being picked on by the GOP, and re-elect the Communists to the Senate.

They need to let him go ahead and incriminate himself, then wait until after November, and hope that they win the Senate, and then impeach the criminal dictator.

USA Now Headless !

Obama seems to think we're on the cutting edge of history. Does he have in mind the predicted beheadings (Rev. 20:4) that are increasing? Obama may feel he'd never be targeted by ISIS. But isn't he afraid they'll soon conclude he doesn't have a good head on his shoulders?
