Republicans can take back the US House of Representatives, and most Republicans and even some Democrats appeared to be on the same page about that as an election issue. Democrat Joe Biden’s impeachment is not just about getting back at Republicans; it’s primarily about saving the Republic and our citizens from further destruction.
Nevertheless, Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy gives the impression that the GOP won’t try to remove Biden’s cabinet members for political reasons, “because Democrats used it against Trump for purely political purposes,” according to an article in the Daily Mail on Thursday.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and AG Merrick Garland, who have destroyed the US Southern Border and completely dismantled law enforcement and justice, are also on the list of individuals to impeach and remove from office.
McCarthy told Punchbowl News, “I think the country doesn’t like impeachment used for political purposes at all,” adding, “I think the country wants to heal.”
‘If you spent all that time arguing against using impeachment for political purposes, you gotta be able to sustain exactly what you said,’ added by McCarthy.
“Kevin McCarthy is not as eager as his GOP colleagues to immediately seek impeachment against Joe Biden’s Cabinet members if they win back a majority in the November midterms. Some Republicans are out for blood-seeking revenge by way of Biden and his team after Democrats politicized impeachment and sought it against Donald Trump two times during his four years in office,” according to The Daily Mail, also adding:
“The House GOP Leader, however, told Punchbowl News that Americans don’t ‘like impeachment used for political purposes at all,’ adding “the country wants to heal’ and see a ‘system that actually works.”
He added that Republicans must uphold their integrity by refraining from acting with the same political motivations that they had been railing against the opposite party for the previous four years.
Republicans have even suggested impeaching President Joe Biden, who will turn 80 in a month, by questioning his mental and physical fitness for office.
McCarthy responded, “I don’t see that before me right now,” when asked if any members of the administration have engaged in behavior that would prompt him to consider impeachment.
The California Republican congressman stated, “You look what the Democrats did — they all came out and said they would impeach before Trump was ever inaugurated in. There was no justification for it.”
‘If you spent all that time arguing against using impeachment for political purposes, you gotta be able to sustain exactly what you said,’ McCarthy continued.
While McCarthy claims to be against “impeachment for political purposes,” there is still potential for him to use that tactic in situations that, in his opinion, lack political motivation.
McCarthy made the remarks during the same week that Politico reported that McCarthy is viewed as being accommodating to the Democrat platform:
Politico stated: “Biden world privately thinks McCarthy could fold on Ukraine aid Republicans are poised for big midterm gains but increasingly at odds over approving more aid to Kyiv — which means a new calculus for Biden,” and continued:
“The GOP’s internal rift over how long to keep U.S. aid flowing to war-ravaged Ukraine is spilling into public view weeks before a midterm election that could hand the party full control of Congress.
When Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — the likely speaker of a GOP House next year — suggested this week that he’d pull back on U.S. funding for Ukraine’s battle against Russia, it wasn’t the first signal to the Biden administration that Republican lawmakers are leery of prolonged financial support for Kyiv. But for many in Congress, including some Republicans, McCarthy’s comments only heightened the urgency of going big on a Ukraine aid package in December before the California Republican likely takes the reins of the House.”
Among Republican border hawks, calls for Mayorkas’ impeachment are by far the most common.
“DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has no integrity and should have already resigned from public office,” on Tuesday, Andy Biggs, a representative from Arizona, tweeted.
“We will use my impeachment articles and impeach him come January,” the GOP legislator continued.
Paul Gosar, a colleague and lawmaker from Arizona, tweeted on Saturday that “Alejandro Mayorkas warrants impeachment for incompetence, dereliction of duty and gross negligence. Most of Biden’s admin comes from Clown World but Mayorkas takes the clown cake.”
“Mayorkas must be impeached,” Rep. Chip Roy of Texas wrote. “[He] should have been impeached long before this for a host of reasons. I laid out the case for impeachment last spring, and this latest revelation demonstrates a total disregard for his duty and those he is entrusted to lead.”

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia wrote in a tweet last week: ‘Our country is being invaded and people are dying every single day. The cartels control the border and human trafficking is the worst it’s been in US history. Mayorkis (sic) must be impeached.’
GOP Representative Andy Biggs and Marjorie Taylor Greene are among the pro-Trump lawmakers who have called for immediate impeachments when they have a majority in the lower chamber. CONTINUE READING…
