While speaking to media Tuesday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) bluntly addressed the idea that Republicans are angling to impeach President Obama.

Boehner actually laughed when a reporter, who mentioned "talk of impeachment that's coming more from Democrats than Republicans," asked for the Speaker's opinion on the matter.

"We have no plans to impeach the president," said Boehner flatly. "We have no future plans."

"This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill," he continued. "Why? Because they're trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's elections."

The Speaker further dismissed the notion of impeachment as "a scam started by Democrats at the White House."
