Allen West may have been voted out of office, but he is just not going to go away.
The former Florida Republican Congressman is on the record as saying that he “absolutely” agrees that all options, including impeachment, should be on the table for President Barack Obama in the wake of recent scandals involving the White House.
West made the comment during an interview with The Shark Tank, a Florida based blog. Essentially he agrees with Trey Radel (R-Fla.) in January who raised the impeachment issue in January while speaking out against the president’s executive actions on gun violence.
“It is one of those times in our history, we are at this breaking point,” Radel said. “We have completely lost our checks and balances in this country, the Congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions that he’s making right now, and that’s why again, I would say that all options should be on the table.”
West agreed with Radel saying he was “absolutely right,” and cited the September 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, as reason enough for impeachment.
“We did something that is the most heinous thing that could ever happen, we abandoned Americans while they were under attack,” West said. “You know that’s right up there to ask someone, maybe you should not be the President. Guess what? Richard Nixon stepped down over breaking and entering.”
