Rep. Trent Franks Calls For Impeaching Obama Over DOMA Stance
Arizona Congressman Trent Franks says President Obama should be impeached if he doesn’t reverse his stance and agree to defend Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act. Scott Keyes of Think Progress spoke with him at the Tea Party Patriots Policy Summit in Phoenix.
Franks advocated defunding the Department of Justice if it doesn’t defend the measure, saying, “I would support that in a moment,” adding he would “absolutely” favor impeaching President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder if the idea of doing so “could gain collective support”
KEYES: I know Newt Gingrich has came out and said if they don’t reverse course here, we ought to be talking about possibly impeaching either Attorney General Holder or even President Obama to try to get them to reverse course. Do you think that is something you would support?
FRANKS: If it could gain the collective support, absolutely. I called for Eric Holder to repudiate the policy to try terrorists within our civil courts, or resign. So it just seems like that they have an uncanny ability to get it wrong on almost all fronts.
