*(Via Huffington Post) – Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer said potential action by President Barack Obama on immigration may be “an impeachable offense.”
Fox News reported Wednesday Obama would announce the use of executive action on a 10-point immigration plan as early as next week. The New York Times confirmed the report, though a senior administration official told The Huffington Post Wednesday the president had yet to decide on immigration action.
“I believe it is an impeachable offense,” Krauthammer told Fox News host Megyn Kelly Thursday evening. “If the circumstances were different, if we were at the beginning of a presidency, if we hadn’t had years when the Congress has been supine and unresponsive at other grabs of their authority by the executive … this idea of prosecutorial discretion is really a travesty.”
Krauthammer also said an executive order on immigration would be a “flagrant assault on the Constitution.”
