Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin on Thursday suggested that President Barack Obama could be punished with impeachment or other “constitutional provisions” for his administration’s “jihadi-coddling” in Libya.
Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity just two days after the president was elected to a second term, Malkin said that four Americans had died in Benghazi, Libya because Democrats had a “cynical elevation of their own political self interest above the national interest.”
“Thank goodness we’ve got watchdogs on Capitol Hill that will not rest on behalf these murdered Americans,” she explained. “And all we’re going to hear about is the whining from the Democrats about how it’s the Republicans who are politicizing national security, when it’s their bloody, dirty, corrupt M.O.”
Hannity said that he was convinced that “the president knew and that president lied to the American people” that the deaths in Libya were the result of a terrorist attack.
“Well, there are many constitutional provisions for recourse on this and I think that they have to be contemplated,” Malkin pointed out. “And this administration and this candidate and this president was forced to see signs from people reminding them that they will not forget the seven hours of hell that the murdered Americans went through before they perished in Benghazi!”
“And it’s the same thing with the Camp Bastion attack, which I’ve raised questions about on behalf of murdered Marines in that case and the lack of security, questions about rules of engagement that have been compromised by this politically-correct, jihadi-coddling administration.”
