- Republican Rep. Lou Barletta said Monday that President Barack Obama would 'probably' lost an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives
- 'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution, and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances,' the Pennsylvania lawmaker told a local radio host
- After the Democratic National Committee attacked Barletta, his communications direction revised and extended the congressman's comments and said that Barletta thinks taking a vote to impeach the president would be 'harmful'
- ‘Could that pass the House? Probably. Would the Senate ever convict? Certainly not,' he said on behalf of his boss
