Columnist Charles Krauthammer said that a unilateral move by President Obama to legalize millions of illegal immigrants would be an impeachable offense, but he cautioned that impeachment proceedings would be “political suicide” for Republicans.
Krauthammer appeared on Fox News with Bret Baier Tuesday night:
If he were to do something like legalize five — let’s say half, which is what’s been talked about — huge numbers of illegal immigrants, to do it by executive order — which would be clearly lawless, and it would be the biggest overreach of a president in memory — it would be an impeachable offense.
I would be 100 percent against impeachment because it’s political suicide. But it really would be the basis for that.
