Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that President Obama would be impeached if he deployed U.S. troops in Syria.

"No one wants American boots on the ground. Nor will there be American boots on the ground, because there would be an impeachment of the president if they did that," McCain told Phoenix radio station KYFI on Thursday.
