Republican Rep. Tom Marino of Pennsylvania says President Obama is "getting close" to impeachment.

"People say, 'should the president be impeached?' I say, we're getting close to that," the Marino said in a video posted on YouTube Wednesday by the local newspaper, the Wellsboro Gazette.

Marino said he was talking about impeachment because "it comes up consistently at town hall meetings."

Of Attorney General Eric Holder, Marino said he also was "approaching impeachment."

"I think when an attorney general says, 'I am not enforcing the law that I took the oath to enforce,' that's approaching impeachment."

Marino explained earlier he was against the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, saying it should be used sparingly and only when there is a constitutional violation.

"I don't think we should be using impeachment just because we do not like a president or an attorney general, or anybody else that's elected."

Marino has said previously that he wanted to impeach the Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
