Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said the fatal attacks on American diplomats in Benghazi could lead to President Barack Obama’s impeachment during a radio interview Friday.
“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said during a discussion of Benghazi on “The Rusty Humphries show.

“I-word meaning ‘impeachment?’” Humphries asked.
“Yeah,” Inhofe said.
Humphries pointed out it was unlikely the Senate would vote to convict Obama even if the GOP-controlled House voted to impeach.

“I understand that,” he said.“I’m not talking about it now. This is something that could last until after the 2014 elections. This is not a short story.… This is clearly an orchestrated cover-up.”

Republicans have been musing, with varying degrees of seriousness, about impeaching Obama almost since his first day in office. Most recently, Reps. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) and Trey Radel (R-Fla.) suggested impeaching the president over his use of executive actions to advance gun control.

Inhofe zeroed in on U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s appearance on the Sunday political talk shows following the attack as the impetus for the scandal. During those appearances, Rice acknowledged the presence of “extremists” at the diplomatic compound in Libya, but fingered a poorly made and offensive viral video as the root of the violence.

“They knew that it was a cover-up at that time, the time that it happened,” Inhofe said.“To send Susan Rice out to lie to the American people is one thing that’s going to go down in history, that’s never going to be forgotten.”

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attack. Republicans have spent the past week building up Benghazi as a scandal after the issue faded from the scene in recent months. The House Oversight Committee held a emotional and lengthy hearing on Wednesday and documents outlining the development of Rice’s talking points were leaked to ABC on Friday morning.

Like other Republicans in recent days, Inhofe has taken direct aim at then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, claiming her famous clash with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) at hearing in January was essentially staged by the former First Lady.

“I think that she has gotten by with that sort of forceful attitude,” he said.“It’s something you’re not really accustomed to or hear from women as much as you do men. And she came out so forcefully, and you could tell that it was orchestrated at the time that she said it.

Obama administration officials who were in key positions on Sept. 11, 2012 acknowledge that a range of mistakes were made the night of the attacks on the U.S. missions in Benghazi, and in messaging to Congress and the public in the aftermath.

The officials spoke to CBS News in a series of interviews and communications under the condition of anonymity so that they could be more frank in their assessments. They do not all agree on the list of mistakes and it’s important to note that they universally claim that any errors or missteps did not cost lives and reflect “incompetence rather than malice or cover up.” Nonetheless, in the eight months since the attacks, this is the most sweeping and detailed discussion by key players of what might have been done differently.

“We’re portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots,” said one Obama administration official who was part of the Benghazi response.“It’s actually closer to us being idiots.”

Lol
that's a given

You've posted more about Benghazi than you have about the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center towers that killed thousands of people. Stop using Benghazi for political motives. Your not going to win in 2016, THATS A FACT!!

But you might have your $5 gas because the GOP will do anything now to win the White House. Your a GOP Zombie

Where was Obama at while our ambassador and 3 patriots were being murdered? He wasn't in the situation room. Was he at the white house?

Why the refusal to say exactly where the president was and what he was doing that night?

Was he inebriated? Was he entertaining a big democratic contributor in the Whitehouse? Was he on a clandestine fundraising mission out of country?

It makes you wonder why all the secrecy as to where he was and what he was doing that night. He wasn't taking care of business, that much we know.
