The country would not benefit from an impeachment attempt, according to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky.
According to NewsMax, Following the discovery of information pertaining to claims of influence peddling operations involving the president and members of his family, House Republicans have been moving closer to initiating an impeachment inquiry into Biden.
A week before lawmakers left for their fall break, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, reportedly stated that Republican investigations into Biden and his family are “rising to the level of impeachment inquiry.”
McCarthy demanded that Biden “give us his bank statements” on Monday night to demonstrate that he did not benefit financially from the purported ventures of his son, Hunter Biden.
Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia are two other House Republicans who have publicly called for the beginning of an impeachment investigation. They have done so not only because of the accusations that were the subject of the GOP investigations, but also because of his handling of the crisis at the southern border.
According to New York Post, the Speaker has made an effort to draw a distinction between an impeachment inquiry, which he has proposed since late last month, and the subsequent impeachment proceedings.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) attempted in vain to have Biden removed from office in June due to the border crisis. The action provoked Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a fellow firebrand, to label her a “little b—h” and accuse her of stealing Greene’s articles.
None of these attempts have succeeded in seriously jeopardizing Biden to this point, but the White House is not treating the issue lightly.
In the 247-year history of the US, there have only been four presidential impeachments, three of which have happened recently.
