Will Obama Face Impeachment?

November 10, 2010

The Interior Department‘s inspector general says the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of the administration’s six-month ban on new drilling.

Will this action give the new faces in Washington the ammunition they need to try for an impeachment trial? Past Presidents have been brought up on less charges in the past.

The inspector general says the editing changes resulted “in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.” But it hadn’t been. The scientists were only asked to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.

With the economy is the toilet and jobs still hard to find, even harder to keep, this is a big point of focus amongst those voted in on the back of political change ideals. The real question now is how involved Obama was with the lie.

The inspector general’s report said the administration did not violate federal rules because the executive summary did not say the experts approved of the moratorium and because the department publicly clarified what the experts said and had offered a formal apology.

Will this really save Obama? There are a lot of people out to discredit Obama and his administration so if this kind of mistake is common place in the White House Obama may be looking at taking the witness stand.
