Washington, D.C. – Despite Speaker Johnson admitting just three weeks ago that there is “insufficient evidence to initiate formal impeachment proceedings” against President Biden, he has now indicated he will allow an impeachment vote to take place.  In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement: 

“Just three weeks ago, MAGA Mike Johnson said there was no evidence of wrongdoing to support a formal impeachment, but after hanging out at Mar-a-Lago with the twice impeached, 4-time-indicted, chief election denier Donald Trump, he has changed his mind. What’s changed? There has been no new evidence turned up in the past year of investigations, let alone the past three weeks. Republicans have ignored the important priorities of Americans across the country, like access to health care and rising costs, all to pursue this wild goose chase to appease their disgraced leader. Mike Johnson has gone from being ‘Speaker Election Denier’ to ‘Speaker Bogus Impeachment’ and he’s putting Republicans in swing districts directly in the political crosshairs.”
