Congressman Radel on Possible Presidential Overreach – “All Options Should be on the Table”

By Javier Manjarres

trey radelCongressman Steve Stockman from Texas has taken aim against President Obama’s forthcoming executive orders that will further restrict gun rights by “eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment” against the President.

President Obama’s highly questionable power grabs have been a persistent feature throughout his first term- the installation of dozens of ‘czars’ that are only accountable to him, back door administrative regulations that bypass Congress, his unilateral authorization of military action without seeking congressional approval and his executive orders, all of which have quite a few members of the Republican caucus speaking behind closed doors about possibility of impeachment 

Freshman Congressman Trey Radel, who won former Congressman Connie Mack’s congressional seat in 2012, stated that “all options should be on the table” when asked about the possibility of  other Republicans initiating impeachment proceedings.

During an interview with the Shark Tank in his Washington, D.C. office, Radel posed a very interesting question to Democrats loyal to President Obama-

“What I would say to Democrats who are friends with President Obama right now is, ask yourself, what are you going to do when a Republican gets in, and you may not agree with or like very much, and begins doing the same thing?” – Congressman Trey Radel

Radel concluded by saying that we as Americans “have completely lost our checks and balances in this country, the Congress needs to hold the President accountable for the decisions that he’s making right now, and that why again, I would say that all options should be on the table.”

If President Obama continues to rule by executive fiat and continues to ignore Congress, will additional Republicans express their support for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama?
