Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) said the reason for not impeaching President Barack Obama is that it would have two harmful effects: Both Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would become president.

“What does it look like to have Joe Biden as president instead of Barack Obama?” Vitter said at a town hall meeting Monday, in response to a question from an audience member about impeachment, according to the Advocate in Louisiana. “I’ll tell you what it looks like, it looks exactly the same. So what do we do the next time, impeach Joe Biden? OK let’s impeach Joe Biden. What do you think the next presidential election looks like? Do you think that hurts Hillary? Because I don’t. I think that elects Hillary. I think that elects Hillary for eight years.”
