Senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican from Alabama, delivered a speech to the Heritage Foundation in November 2014 in which he said that the Congress would neither impeach President Obama nor bring the issue to a vote. A July 2014 poll by CNN found that 65 percent of Americans oppose impeachment.
In a July 2014 press event held jointly by six conservative Republican members of the House of Representatives, the members declared that the Congress taking any action toward impeaching President Obama was unlikely and unwise. Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner also said that he disagreed with Sarah Palin's desire to impeach Obama. Boehner reportedly told members of the House who favored impeachment that he did not favor that approach.
