Congressional Democrats are shocked, shocked to learn that Republicans want to vote on an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden on allegations he is corrupt and abused his political power to rake in millions of dollars for his family from foreign interests.
The dean of Colorado’s Democrat congressional delegation, U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, insists there is “no concrete evidence of any wrongdoing by President Biden,” which is laughable to anyone who has paid a split second of attention to the unravelling of Hunter Biden’s business dealings with daddy.
“House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said in announcing the inquiry, reports The Washington Times.
“Taken together, these allegations paint a picture of a culture of corruption.”
Duh, America responded.
DeGette and fellow Democrats in Congress and the media are sailing down the river of denial of Joe’s dirty dealings. If Republicans dare take up an impeachment inquiry, they swear something terrible will happen.
Guess which one:
- Orange man bad reelected
- Government shutdown
- Mandatory masks
- Children will starve
- Planet will die
If you guessed government shutdown, you are correct.
This is the funniest thing I have read on the internet all day LMAO where was this energy when your party tried impeaching Trump three times without any concrete evidence of wrongdoing??? pic.twitter.com/MUP5JIL7sS

And yet not all Republicans are on board with beginning impeachment proceedings at this time, says the dean of Colorado’s Republican delegation, U.S. Rep. Ken Buck.
We don’t have the votes for impeachment, plain and simple. @HouseGOP must instead stay focused on addressing issues that harm everyday Americans, i.e., a porous southern border, rampant, inner-city crime, and skyrocketing inflation. pic.twitter.com/V0FnhEcZoJ

Buck is right that it will never pass the Senate. More importantly, impeachment will only clutter an already tumultuous presidential election with more sound and fury that will signify nothing.
Impeaching a president always comes back to haunt Republicans, just like indicting a former president is backfiring wildly on Democrats.
And as Buck noted, the impeachment process has already been ongoing for quite a while without a vote of the House.
Letting the House vote, nonetheless, is still the American way and we look forward to hearing Democrats defending their president who is polling underwater within his own party.
