All options, including impeachment, should be considered for President Barack Obama in the wake of numerous scandals affecting his administration, said former Republican Rep. Allen West of Florida.

West, in an interview with The Shark Tank, a Florida-based blog, said he agreed with Republican Rep. Trey Radel of Florida who said in January that Obama's executive actions on gun control should lead to impeachment.

Since then, scandals including the seizure of phone records from journalists, the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative organizations, and the administration's response to the September 2012 attacks in Benghazi, have continued to unfold.

West said the administration's actions following the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, are reason enough for impeachment.

"We did something that is the most heinous thing that could ever happen, we abandoned Americans while they were under attack," West said. "You know that’s right up there to ask someone, maybe you should not be the president. Guess what? Richard Nixon stepped down over breaking and entering."

West agreed Radel was "absolutely right" when he said that the United States is at a breaking point.

"We have completely lost our checks and balances in this country, the Congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions that he’s making right now, and that's why again, I would say that all options should be on the table," Radel said in the earlier interview.
