Some pundits have speculated that if Republicans take control of the House, which looks more likely every day, they will move to impeach President Barack Obama. That’s not the case, staunch Obama Issa, Obama, impeachment, Republicansopponent Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told Bloomberg, The Hill reports.

Just because House Republicans take issue with Obama, that doesn’t mean they’ll try to impeach him, Issa says. “Not a chance at this point. I don’t see it happening," he tells Bloomberg.

"Look, disagreeing with the president — the president using his authority, maybe even misusing it — that’s not what impeachment’s for," Issa says. "Do we have disagreements? Yes. Do we want to see that the president strictly adheres to process? Yes."

Some Republicans have raised the issue of impeachment, including Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former Rep. Tom Tancredo, who is now running for governor of Colorado as a third-party candidate. Tancredo has advocated impeachment, and Bachmann said Congress should look into the idea.
