Calls for impeachment: a timeline
"It's all a scam started by the Democrats at the White House," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, insisted Tuesday when asked about impeaching President Barack Obama. "Why? Because they are trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's election."
The latter part of that is true: Over the weekend, Democrats say they raised $2.1 million largely using the specter of an attempted impeachment.
