Rep. Ted Yoho: Impeachment “a Contentious Thing”


by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 7, 2016) —  Speaking on the TNALC radio program on Sunday evening, Florida Rep. Ted Yoho said that the prospect of impeaching Barack Hussein Obama for “high crimes and misdemeanors” is “a contentious thing” because the threshold is not well-defined.

JB Williams hosted the segment, which began at approximately 6:15 p.m.

“This is all about the Constitution and the rule of law,” Yoho said to Williams, who then commented that “every person listening” should contact his or her congressman to urge Obama’s impeachment.

A caller from Michigan observed that it appears to her that no one other than Yoho in Congress is honoring the Constitution and that “the American dream” is disappearing.

“I will look at where we can go with impeachment,” Yoho assured her, stating that he and his wife “lived the American dream.”

Yoho said that he will protect the “way of life” which allowed him to excel in life after having grown up in a family that struggled financially and had its home repossessed.

The radio show, sponsored by the North American Law Center (NALC), is an effort to spur members of Congress to introduce Articles of Impeachment written by NALC 19 months ago into the House Judiciary Committee.

In response to another caller, Yoho stated that much effort is necessary to preserve liberty and freedom and that failure to do so will result in a situation similar to those found in Cuba, Iran, China and other repressive countries.

Yoho said at 6:38 p.m. that “there are about six of us” who wish to go forward with impeachment, of which he said the press has been made aware but has refused to cover.

Yoho added that a “censureship resolution” was introduced approximately two weeks ago which is “gaining co-sponsors.”  “We would do this with any president…if we don’t do it, I fear where this country will be if we keep going down this road,” Yoho said.  He indicated that “perfidy” is “an impeachable offense” and believes Obama committed it with the Obamacare legislation, but the censureship he said, deals specifically with “national security.”

Considering “the best way to go,” Yoho compared impeachment to a “home run” which might not be able to be accomplished, but that censureship is like reaching first or second base.

At 6:51 p.m., Yoho listed the items he believes are the most egregious associated with the Obama regime, which included failure to enforce immigration law, the Fast & Furious gunrunning operation, and Obama’s having conducted a “no-fly zone in Libya” which he said “aided and abetting” Middle Eastern terrorists.
