Kevin McCarthy is about to hold a press conference where he will no doubt justify his decision to move forward with holding a vote to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. He should answer the following questions today:
- Why should Americans not believe Representatives Buck, Bacon, and Lawler that there is no evidence worthy of an impeachment or an impeachment inquiry?
- Do you agree with Chairman Comer that congressional investigators have received everything they’ve requested? Chairman Comer’s exact words: “every subpoena that I have signed, as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee over the last five months, we have gotten 100% of what we requested, whether it’s with the FBI or with the banks or with Treasury.” Then what is the justification for an impeachment inquiry?
- YOU said pre-midterms: “I think the country doesn’t like impeachment used for political purposes at all. If anyone ever rises to that occasion, you have to, but I think the country wants to heal and … start to see the system that actually works.” But now you’re dangling this as Gaetz threatens your speakership, Greene threatens a shutdown, and Trump presses you for impeachment. What changed?
