Graham is not the only Republican calling for Biden’s resignation or impeachment, but with Democrats in both chambers of Congress, the idea is a complete false start. At least 20 House Republicans on Thursday called for President Joe Biden’s resignation or impeachment, including Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C., who voted in January to impeach former President Donald Trump after faced dozens of Trump and his challengers. Republican congressional offices have been besieged with calls for impeachment proceedings against Biden.
Impeachment of Joe Biden is a way to weaken the Democratic Party, force it to fight on several fronts, and make it an easier prey for Republicans and the larger neo-fascist movement. Impeachment proceedings against Biden would provoke the worst impulses of Donald Trump and his supporters, who would commit further acts of political violence against their supposed enemies.
On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell rejected the notion that President Joe Biden is impeached following America’s controversial withdrawal from Afghanistan. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader (D-Ky. ) said Wednesday that President Biden should not be impeached for withdrawing from war-torn country, even if the House and Senate are under Democratic control. Given the shrill criticisms of Biden’s handling of Afghanistan and the endgame in some corners of the Republican Party – including multiple calls for him to resign eight months into his presidency – the furor over a possible impeachment of Biden if Republicans take control of the House in 2023 – has created a sticky situation – especially for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy – who was a happy demagogue about Biden’s responsibility for the events in Kabul.
Senator Mitch McConnell has dispelled the rumors that President Joe Biden could be impeached for withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Wednesday’s remarks came after some Republicans in Congress had hinted that the former vice president could be impeached over his handling of America’s controversial withdrawal from Afghanistan after the Taliban quickly seized power. Two dozen House and Senate Republicans called on Biden on Thursday to resign or be removed after a terrorist attack in Kabul that killed at least a dozen U.S. soldiers, as tensions between the president and congressional Republicans intensify over the withdrawal of the United States from the region.
The Trump-controlled Republican Party would have no chance of impeaching President Joe Biden if it won control of the House of Representatives in the midterms of 2023. They would not be able to convict Biden in the Senate and remove him from office, as Democrats could not convict President Trump at that point.
Any Republican who opposed President Trump during his impeachment should defend President Biden. They should work to ensure that impeachment does not become a regular tool used against a president with whom a party disagrees. If impeachment is something that House Democrats cling to and, of course, Republicans win the House in next year’s elections, as seems likely, it’s time for Joe Biden’s to hire lawyers.
Assuming that Mike Pence does not want to go down the fateful path of impeachment anytime soon, he must make it clear that he will demonize and damage the Bidens on the Afghanistan situation, as Republicans have done. If Democrats are not satisfied with the way Biden has handled the Greene-led moratoriums on Afghanistan and immigration and displacement, they will not work with Republicans to impeach him. If President Biden commits a serious crime, our Congress will impeach him.
Republican Senator Joni Ernst said Biden should be impeached over GOP allegations that Ukrainian Attorney General Viktor Shokin should be fired over the investigation into the Burisma scandal.
The Republican senator from South Carolina is close to Biden and his senators – a relationship that has remained strong since the Delaware man became vice president under Barack Obama. When Graham called Biden in mid-November to explain his enthusiasm for Trump’s refusal to admit defeat, he defended the attack on Hunter Biden, the president’s surviving son, during the campaign.
It is a dereliction of duty to leave hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines, to take them hostage, to abandon thousands of Afghans fighting on our side and create the conditions for 9/11; President Obama should be impeached for that. While his running mate, former president Donald Trump, was impeached after emulating a congressional revolt on January 6, Graham warned that the Democrats could suffer a setback for their support for the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer.
Several Republicans, including Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, have said that president should resign or be impeached. Some predict that the current investigation into impeachment proceedings against Trump will target impeachment for abuse of power, and Republicans will use this unconstitutional precedent to push President Biden for impeachment for his actions and inaction on Afghanistan.
Former President Donald Trump was impeached for the first time by Senate Republicans, who refused to end allegations of abuse of power put forward by House Democrats. In arguing for Trump’s impeachment, Senate-controlled Republicans seemed to agree that a vote not to remove him would end on the grounds suggested in its impeachment resolution by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
The House voted 232-197 on January 13 to impeach Trump for a second time after he was accused of fomenting an uprising by telling rallies in Washington, D.C. in March that “Congress will fight like hell on January 6.” The impeachment came after several key Republicans voted in favor of Trump’s impeachment following the Capitol riots. The impeachment process now heads to the Senate, where members of Congress must vote on whether Trump should be tried for the allegations. If Democrats control both chambers of Congress, McConnell said, it would mean impeachment proceedings against the country’s Democratic president would not be possible.
