GOP Lawmaker Hints Of ‘Pressure’ On Republicans To Impeach Biden Should Party Wins The House

Rep. Nancy Mace, a Republican from South Carolina, said on Sunday that she believes House Republicans are under “pressure” to move to impeach President Joe Biden if they gain control of the chamber after the midterm elections.

When Chuck Todd of NBC’s “Meet the Press” asked Mace if she expected impeachment proceedings if her party won the House, she said, “I think there’s pressure on the Republicans to put that forward and have that vote.” “I believe that’s what some people are thinking.”

However, the new lawmaker stated, “If that happens, I think it would be bad.”

Mace didn’t say where the alleged pressure was coming from, and she wasn’t asked who was thinking of making a move.

When asked how she would vote in an impeachment vote on Sunday, Mace said, “I will not vote for impeachment of any president if I feel that due process has been taken away for anyone.” I usually vote the way the Constitution requires, regardless of who is in power.”

CNN reported earlier this year that more conservative members of the House Republican Conference wanted to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden if the GOP won the midterm elections. So far, Republican leaders have refused to support this idea.

According to CNN, House Republicans are planning to retaliate against the special committee investigating the uprising on January 6, 2021. Former President Donald Trump has relied heavily on his friends on Capitol Hill to defend him against a slew of damaging revelations around his role in the deadly attack on the US Capitol.

While Republicans seek to debunk these findings, they have begun to lay the groundwork for an investigation into the January 6 panel itself. Some of Trump’s most ardent supporters have also started to call for hearings and investigations into his false claims of election fraud in 2020.

Far-right Members Agitate launch Of Impeachment Proceedings.

Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, has stated that a GOP-led House will have strong oversight and investigations. Still, it is unclear how far he is willing to go before January 6, 2020, and the 2020 presidential election.

Some on the far right are already attempting to impeach President Joe Biden if the GOP takes control of Congress next year. Some leading Republicans want to draw attention to former President Donald Trump’s false claims of voter fraud.

And some Republicans in the House and Senate have promised to investigate the security flaws that led to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol last year. Instead, they want to focus on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

With Republicans on the verge of regaining control of the House and Senate, they are planning an onslaught of probings into the Biden administration & promising to make the final two years of Biden’s first term as difficult for Democrats as possible in the run-up to 2024.

These headaches could take the form of subpoenas, the formation of select committees, and high-profile hearings on everything from the cause of the coronavirus pandemic to hearing from the President’s son, Hunter.

Mace, elected to a seat in the Charleston area in 2020, voted to certify that Biden had won the presidential election, which enraged Trump. She was accused of not being loyal enough to the former President and faced a primary opponent backed by Trump, but she won by 8 points in June.

Mace told NBC she was “very hopeful” that “a deep bench of Republicans and Democrats will be running for president” in 2024. She did, however, leave the idea of supporting Trump again if the Republican Party nominated him for President in 2024.

“I’ll back whoever the Republicans nominate in ’24,” she said.
