Could the Benghazi Scandal Lead to Impeachment Hearings for Obama?

Judge Napolitano goes over the potential consequences for Hillary Clinton and Obama following the Benghazi whistleblower testimony.

As seen on Fox and Friends

On Fox and Friends this morning, Steve Doocy asked Judge Andrew Napolitano what will happen next following the Benghazi whistleblowers' testimony on Capitol Hill. Could the scandal lead to possible perjury charges against Hillary Clinton for her previous testimony on Capitol Hill? Is there any scenario that could lead to impeachment against President Obama?

Napolitano explained that charges against Hillary Clinton could not be based solely on contradictions from someone else in the State Department.

"There would need to be additional corroborating evidence supporting the person who who contradicted her, and directly contradicting her. ... The bigger picture here is, what did the president know and when did he know it? What did his administration know, when did they know it? This is almost the Nixon model when the House voted Article of Impeachment. Is this a cover-up? Is this an interference with a criminal investigation orchestrated by the White House for political purposes? In the Watergate case it was a third-rate break-in, figuratively and literally. In this case it affects profound national security interests and the deaths of four innocent Americans," said Napolitano.

The judge however, thinks it is very unlikely that there will be any impeachment proceedings against President Obama, but that his presidency could be "seriously damaged if Democrats come to realize that he and the truth are strangers on [Benghazi]."
