Top House Republican repeatedly dodges Fox News' Obama impeachment questions

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Sunday repeatedly declined to give a straight answer on whether he would support impeaching President Obama.

Even in the relatively friendly confines of Fox News Sunday, Scalise deflected three times when asked by host Chris Wallace whether impeachment was on the table. The first two times, Scalise said the White House was pushing the impeachment narrative to boost fundraising and rally its base, though he declined to say whether the GOP would actually pursue impeachment as some of its most conservative members have urged.

When Wallace tried for a third time to elicit a direct answer, Scalise changed the subject once more, responding, "The White House will do anything they can to change the topic away from the president's failed agenda." --Jon Terbush
