House Republicans have been discussing about impeaching President Joe Biden over what they say is his improper involvement in his family’s business dealings.
But with a long to-do list when lawmakers return to Washington after August recess, for now, it’s all yapping.
Former President Donald Trump however, is pressuring GOP lawmakers to put action behind their words and begin the impeachment process against Biden − or face electoral consequences.
“Any Republican that doesn’t act on Democratic fraud should be immediately primaried and get out,” Trump told supporters at a campaign rally Saturday in Erie, Pennsylvania. “We got a lot of good, tough Republicans around. People are going to run against them and people are going to win.”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has dismissed the notion that he is facing pressure from the former president to go after Biden, calling an impeachment inquiry an appropriate course of action.
“If (the Biden administration) does not provide the information we need, then we would go to an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said at a news conference last week, referencing House Republicans’ various investigations into whether Biden benefited from Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
