Interview: Boehner Calls Impeachment Talk A”Scam”

John Boehner

Sarah Palin may have demanded that President Barack Obama be impeached and tea party Republicans may have flirted with the idea as well, but House Speaker John Boehner declared Tuesday that such talk was all a “scam” dreamed up by the White House as Boehner’s lawsuit against the President takes shape.

And on Tuesday, House Republicans unveiled their plan to stem the surge of undocumented child migrants from Central Americaat the southern border, proposing to spend $659 million – well short of the $3.7 billion President Obama seeks – to ease the humanitarian crisis after weeks of internal divisions and just days before Congress adjourns for its five-week August break.
