(Republican Insider) – A new report from The Western Journal has revealed that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has stated that he would not commit to impeaching Joe Biden if the GOP takes back control of the House of Representatives come fall time.
But, he went on to say, the House would “follow the facts,” if Biden’s conduct were to rise up to the level of an impeachable offense.
Pretty sure that’s already happened, but is anyone really surprised that an entrenched Republican would seek to allow the current occupant of the White House to get away with all of the junk he’s currently involved with?
“We’re not going to use it for political purposes,” McCarthy said to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on her show “Sunday Morning Futures,” stating that’s what the Democrats did.
“We believe in the rule of law,” McCarthy then stated. “We’re not going to pick and choose just because somebody has power. We’re going to uphold the law.”
“At any time, if someone breaks the law and the ramification becomes impeachment, we would move towards that. But we’re not going to use it for political purposes,” he continued.
McCarthy then went on to list the issues that the GOP would be concerned with if they do end up regaining the majority through the midterm elections later this year.
“Our focus is going to be securing our border, making us energy-independent, bringing these prices down, making our schools safe and our streets again and holding this administration accountable,” the congressman said.
“And we will take the facts to wherever the facts go because America has been through too much with people playing politics with the concept of impeachment. But if it rises to that level, we would have the law determine that,” McCarthy goes on to add.
Back in September of last year, Ohio Republican Bob Gibbs introduced articles of impeachment following the disastrous decision by the president to pull troops out of Afghanistan.
This led to the death of thirteen American service members, along with dozens of Afghan civilians who died during a suicide bombing that took place just outside the Kabul airport.
“GOP Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas co-sponsored the impeachment resolution,” the report stated.
“Besides the Afghanistan debacle, an impeachment article pointed to Biden’s handling of the border, saying he ‘violated his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President,” the report said.
“It cited the president’s decision to halt construction of the border wall, end the former President Donald Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols, which included the ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policy, and release ‘thousands of migrants who entered the United States illegally without a date to appear in court for immigration,’ with migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 among them,” The Western Journal reported.
“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia filed articles of impeachment in January 2021, citing Hunter Biden’s controversial business dealings in Ukraine and China and Joe Biden’s alleged connections to them,” the report concluded.
We need to hold our elected officials accountable for their lawless actions. This should be common sense, but if we don’t do that, it sets a precedent that says it’s okay to violate the law and the duties of the office without worrying about consequences.
Let not that be said about our country.
