ROUNDUP: Even The Right Says Impeachment Is Over

Mar 21, 2024

Yesterday, the MAGA House Republicans on the Oversight Committee held yet another political stunt hearing on the baseless impeachment inquiry of President Biden. Chairman Comer resorted to calling repeat witnesses, including a convicted felon appearing live from prison and a Trump-aligned MAGA insider whose testimony has already been investigated and rejected by both the GOP-led Senate and the Trump-era Department of Justice. The witnesses repeated the same debunked conspiracy theories. Even their right-wing allies, including Fox News and Newsmax commentators and their colleagues in Congress, are admitting impeachment is “not going anywhere” and viewers are “tired” of this stunt. 

It is far past time for MAGA House Republicans to give up this embarrassing charade, stop doing Donald Trump’s bidding, and start focusing on the real concerns of the American people.

Newsmax Host: “The Evidence Is Situational, It’s Circumstantial.” 

  • “A lot of this evidence is situational, it’s circumstantial. What does the Oversight Committee need right now to complete this investigation and fill in these holes” 

Newsmax Host Rob Finnerty: “This Is Not Gonna Go Anywhere.”

  • it kind of seems like you’re chasing your tail at this point because this is not going to go anywhere.” 

Fox News Host Dana Perino: “They Keep Doing The Same Hearing Over And Over Again.”

  • “It just feels like they keep doing the same hearing over and over again, and people are starting to wonder, at some point, do you fish or cut bait? 

Fox News Legal Editor Kerri Urbahn: “I Think People Are Maybe Becoming A Bit Tired Of All Of This.”

  • “Obviously it’s critical for that to have happened while Biden was Vice President or if they offered him some kind of direct payoff for a foreign policy decision once he left office. I don’t think that we’ve gotten there yet.
  • I think people are maybe becoming a bit tired of all of this.” 

Fox News Host John Roberts: How Long Can You Continue This Investigation Without Evidence?

  • The needle hasn’t appreciably moved on this case.”
  • “Where is the evidence of wrongdoing on the President’s part, and how long can you continue this investigation without that evidence?”

Fox News: GOP Lawmakers Says Republicans ‘Don’t Have The Guts’ To Impeach Biden. 

  • “Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., emphatically said ‘no,’ when asked if he thought the committee’s second impeachment inquiry hearing would change any minds.
  • ‘“I don’t think we have the will to impeach Joe Biden.’ Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas, told Fox News Digital at the time.”
  • “Another GOP lawmaker granted anonymity to speak freely agreed the impeachment push has lost momentum, chalking it up to the hectic environment of a presidential election year. ‘I think it was always going to lose steam. I think as soon as we transitioned into a formal presidential election, I don’t know that it was going to continue with the same fervor,’ the GOP lawmaker said.” 

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA): “I Just Can’t Follow” The MAGA House Impeachment Inquiry.

  • “I think I got a pretty good reputation for oversight here in the Senate. And the House…I just can’t follow it, you know?”
