‘IMPEACH the BUM’: Trump Rages At Republicans For Not Impeaching Biden Amid Lack of Evidence



Kevin MccArthy and Donald Trump

On Sunday, former President Donald Trump launched a scathing attack on House Republicans, issuing a fervent demand for the impeachment of President Joe Biden because “they did it to us” and implying that the tables should now turn. He warned that failure to do so could lead to the downfall of the Republican party.

In a desperate post on his new social media platform, Truth Social, Trump wrote, “The Republicans in Congress, though well meaning, keep talking about an Impeachment ‘Inquiry’ on Crooked Joe Biden. … You don’t need a long INQUIRY to prove it, it’s already proven.” He went on to assert, “Either IMPEACH the BUM, or fade into OBLIVION. THEY DID IT TO US!”

However, amid the growing clamor for an impeachment inquiry, CNN reported that many House Republicans remain skeptical about the feasibility of such a move due to the lack of evidence against the president.

There are indications that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has been discreetly outlining plans for an impeachment inquiry by the close of September. Yet, acknowledging the uphill battle of garnering the requisite 218 votes, the party leadership appears prepared to circumvent a formal vote.

Pro-impeachment Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) chimed in, saying “I don’t believe that a vote of the House is required to open an impeachment inquiry.”

While a constitutional mandate for a floor vote isn’t in place, the finances to sustain investigations into the Biden administration could be impacted. McCarthy cautioned that a potential government shutdown due to budget disagreements at the end of the following month could disrupt these investigations.

During a candid interview on Fox News, McCarthy explained, “If we shut down, all of government shuts down — investigations and everything else.”

At the heart of the investigations are unverified allegations that President Biden might have profited from his son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings. Furthermore, scrutiny is being directed at potential interference by the Department of Justice in cases related to Hunter Biden.

President Biden, however, has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing, a point that even some Republican representatives concede. A GOP lawmaker, speaking on condition of anonymity, remarked, “There’s no evidence that Joe Biden got money, or that Joe Biden, you know, agreed to do something so that Hunter could get money.” Casting doubt on the feasibility of impeachment, the lawmaker added, “They can’t impeach without that evidence — and I don’t think the evidence exists.”
