The top-ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said President Barack Obama could possibly be impeached over what happened in Benghazi.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said in a radio interview Thursday that "of all the great cover-ups in history" -- including the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra and Watergate -- Benghazi "is going to go down as the most serious, most egregious coverup in American history."

“We may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said on the Las Vegas-based "Rusty Humphries Show."

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe confirmed.

When Humphries questioned the likelihood of impeachment, Inhofe said it wouldn't be immediate.

"I'm not talking about it now, this is something that could endure until after the '14 election -- this is not a short story, this is something that was re-discovered after eight months...this is clearly an orchestrated coverup," he said.
