GOP Rep.: Republicans might impeach Biden if they win midterms
US Representative Nancy Mace claims that if Republicans win the midterm elections, they will be pressured to impeach incumbent President Joe Biden.
In an interview on NBC News on Sunday, Mace said “I believe there’s a lot of pressure on Republicans to have that vote, to put that legislation forward and have that vote,” adding that “I think that is something that some folks are considering.”
The South Carolina representative, who described herself as "a conservative who works with Democrats,” said that when Democrats tried to impeach former US President Donal Trump for the second time, she voted 'no' because she believed that he had been stripped of his right due to process.
Mace claimed, during her interview, that she would stand against the impeachment of Biden for the same reasons she did when Democrats attempted to impeach Trump. She said, “I’m going to read how that bill is filed, what’s in it, what evidence there was.”
Furthermore, Mace argued that “I typically vote constitutionally, regardless of who’s in power. I want to do the right thing for the long term because this isn’t just about today, tomorrow, or this year’s election. This is about the future of democracy.”
According to Mace, the important thing at this time, for the US, is for the Republicans and Democrats to build consensus on topics and issues that matter most to US voters. She stressed “That’s where our focus should be at this juncture, as opposed to following a shiny object or chasing that rabbit down a hole. We need to be working together.”
Despite being aware that they can't force a vote in the House of Representatives, which is controlled by the Democrats, Republicans have already filed two impeachment cases against Biden, including one this month. The most recent articles of impeachment against Biden were submitted by four GOP lawmakers last week. They accuse him of failing to protect the nation's borders, handling the US military's pullout from Afghanistan poorly last year, and enacting an unconstitutional prohibition on evictions.
It is also worth noting that Mace is likely to retain her seat in Congress after defeating a rival supported by former President Trump in the primary election.
The latest in the Biden-Trump war
In the last episode of the war of words, former US President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News that the United States is "on its way to hell" and requires strong leadership.
"Our country is going to hell. We are a nation in decline," he pointed out. "This country is a mess. The way it’s going right now it’s not going to survive," Trump said.
During the interview, Trump stressed that “the US needs a strong leader to lead the nation out of the crisis.”
"Forget politics, and the Republican and the Democrat stuff, and the radical left and everything else. I want somebody that’s a great leader. I want somebody that can stand toe to toe with President Xi of China," he added.
