Former President Trump has called on Republican members of Congress to consider impeaching President Biden or risk becoming irrelevant.
In a statement on Truth Social, Trump criticized Biden, alleging misconduct without providing substantial evidence. He drew comparisons to his own impeachment, emphasizing that the procedures for him were swift and decisive. He argued that Republicans should act similarly with Biden.
In another post, Trump claimed that the process he faced was abrupt and claimed that certain groups have a different approach, aiming to harm the nation’s values.
Meanwhile, there have been discussions among House Republicans about launching an impeachment inquiry against Biden. Speaker Kevin McCarthy mentioned the possibility of starting the inquiry when Congress reconvenes in September.
The House Oversight and Accountability Committee, under the leadership of Rep. James Comer, has been investigating the international business dealings of the Biden family. Over the recent recess, this committee made certain interview transcripts public and made various information requests.
On a Fox Business show, McCarthy stated that given the data they’ve collected, moving towards an impeachment inquiry seems like a plausible next step.
Trump holds the distinction of being the only U.S. president to face impeachment twice, although he was acquitted in the Senate on both occasions. He has frequently suggested that Biden should also face impeachment, questioning why Congress has been hesitant to take action.
