Biden risks impeachment if Democrats lose midterms
If Democrats do not win the upcoming mid-term elections, Republicans have made it clear that they might consider impeaching US President Joe Biden.
If Democrats lose control of Congress in the November midterm elections, US President Joe Biden may be impeached, according to a Newsweek report published on Saturday. The Democrats might suffer big losses in the midterm elections, and numerous Republican members have already said they would consider impeaching the President, according to the source.
A simple majority of House members must vote in favor of the impeachment process, but only a two-thirds majority of the Senate may have him removed. The report stated that this has never occurred and that it is improbable that the Republicans would hold enough seats to make it happen in 2023.
How democrats see Biden
With the Democrats' already-growing dissatisfaction with Biden aside, according to a CNN report on July 7, members of the party are getting even more frustrated with how Biden is responding to the challenges that America is facing, including inflation and the recent Supreme Court ruling on abortion rights.
In the eyes of those complaining, dozens of Democrats believe that Biden and his administration lack effective management to quickly respond to new challenges and demands that the country faces every day, according to the report.
Back in June, White House counsel Dana Remus, Joe Biden's top personal legal advisor, resigned, joining an exodus of senior officials from the President's personal staff since December, according to a press release issued by Biden on the 15th of that month.
"I am immensely grateful for the service of Dana Remus, who has been an invaluable member of my senior staff for the past 3 years and helped reinstate a culture of adherence to the rule of law. I wish her the best as she moves forward," the President said.
Jen Psaki, Biden's Press Secretary, resigned in May to become a political analyst for the MSNBC news channel.
