House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has made it clear that he will not be pursuing impeachment of Joe Biden, and is even urging Republicans to oppose the resolution offered by Rep. Lauren Boebert that would force a quick vote to impeach the President.
In a statement McCarthy said, “Now is not the time to talk about impeaching the President. We should be focused on working together to get our economy back on track and finding solutions for the American people.” He went on to say that he believes in working with both sides of the aisle in order to find common ground and move forward with legislation that will benefit all Americans.
McCarthy’s stance against impeachment has been echoed by other prominent Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who said in a statement that “impeachment is a tool of last resort” and should only be used when there is clear evidence of wrongdoing. He also noted that it would be difficult for Republicans to win an impeachment trial if they were unable to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Rep Boebert explains that Republican leadership is not supporting her resolution to impeach Joe Biden right now.
McCarthy’s opposition to impeachment comes as no surprise given his long-standing support for bipartisanship and compromise in Congress. In recent months, he has worked closely with Democrats on legislation such as the American Rescue Plan Act which provided relief for millions of Americans during the pandemic. He also worked with Democrats on passing an infrastructure bill which included investments in roads, bridges, broadband internet access, clean energy projects, and other initiatives aimed at improving quality of life across America.
It appears that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy will continue his efforts towards bipartisanship and compromise rather than pursuing impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden. This approach may help bridge divides between both parties as they work together towards solutions that benefit all Americans, but I’m skeptical of that happening. Democrats don’t want to share any bridges with Republicans. They are lost in their own delusions and unwilling to compromise on anything.
