Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama.
Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.”
White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, however, was less definitive when asked about it on Fox News over the weekend. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) has also threatened impeachment.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reported raising $1 million on Tuesday, which Chairman Steve Israel called it the “single biggest online fundraising day of the cycle.”
“Shame on those conservatives and Republicans who help him along,” Rove said.
