New House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told CBN News that any potential attempt to impeach President Barack Obama should be taken off the table.
Several conservatives have mentioned impeachment, saying the president has been overstepping his constitutional authority.
But McCarthy prefers House Speaker John Boehner's route of suing the president for exceeding the limits of his powers.
"The only one talking about that (impeachment) are Democrats and they ones doing it because they want to make it political," McCarthy told CBN News' David Brody.
"If you really look at what we're talking about, we're talking about bringing back the three co-equal branches," he explained. "It's not a lawsuit about an individual. It's about an administration."
