The Porterville Recorder: Mathys announces another challenge to Valadao. “An impeachment inquiry could be the Republicans’ narrow majority in the House at risk. An August poll by the Democratic-aligned Congressional Integrity Project found impeachment is unpopular in all 18 districts won by Biden in 2020 that are held by House Republicans. That includes five Republicans in California, Valadao, John Duarte, Young Kim, Michelle Steel and Mike Garcia. The Los Angeles Times reached out to all five on the impeachment inquiry and all their offices either had no comment or didn’t respond.” [The Porterville Recorder, 9/15/23]

The Congressional Integrity Project, a watchdog group, concluded this month, ‘After months of political stunts, dozens of hearings, transcribed interviews, and memos, and despite hours on Fox peddling conspiracy theories, Comer and his Maga crew have failed to find a single shred of evidence linking President Biden to any of their lurid accusations.
