Mitch McConnell Urges House Republicans to Avoid Pursuing Biden Impeachment

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) encouraged House Republicans to steer clear of pursuing the impeachment of President Joe Biden.

McConnell expressed his concern over perpetuating the cycle of impeachment that Democrats initiated with the impeachment of former President Trump two years ago, based on questionable charges.

McConnell pointed out that he had previously cautioned against the potential consequences of venturing down the path of impeachment. He remarked, “I said two years ago, when we had not one but two impeachments, that once we go down this path it incentivizes the other side to do the same thing.”

Emphasizing the significance of maintaining the rarity of impeachment, McConnell added, “Impeachment ought to be rare. This is not good for the country.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has indicated his willingness to explore impeachment proceedings, asserting, “I think there’s enough proof out there that this Biden family needs to come forward and show there wasn’t a pay-to-play.”

McCarthy also highlighted the empowering effect of impeachment on Congress’s ability to access information that individuals might withhold voluntarily.
