THIS IS HOW DESPERATE THEY ARE FOR A BASE-FIRMING DISTRACTION: The Hill: White House Doubles Down On Impeachment.
The White House on Friday doubled down on its talk that Republicans could try and impeach President Obama, hours after a top White House aide said they were taking these calls more seriously.
“I think there are some Republicans, including some Republicans running for office, hoping to get into office to impeach the president,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, which he described as “political sideshows.”
Earnest was asked to identify who those Republicans are, and he only mentioned Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, but added there’s “no doubt” there are other voices also calling for impeachment.
Earnest also acknowledged that impeachment calls are being tied to fundraising.
