Thank you for contacting me to express your view that President Obama should be impeached and removed from office.
The impeachment and removal of a President are extraordinary actions, defined in Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, that should be taken only when the individual holding that office has been found to have committed treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
Like you, I am deeply concerned and disturbed with the recent scandals ranging from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting conservative organizations, secret e-mail accounts by government officials to conduct government business, the potential cover-up of Benghazi, and an over-all lack of transparency in this Administration. Over four years ago, President Obama pledged to usher in a new era of government transparency, but unfortunately, that has not been the case. These scandals are unacceptable and are weakening the trust Americans have in their government and furthering our partisan divide at a time when we need to come together to help solve the serious problems facing our nation. I will continue to push President Obama to be fully open with Congress and the American public and I will not forget about these issues until those individuals who have broken the trust of the American people have been brought to justice.
I thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts, and I hope you continue to support my efforts to create a better government for the American people. Please do not hesitate to contact me again in the future with this or any other matter of concern.
United States Senator
