Establishment House Republicans Oppose Impeaching Joe Biden

Wendell Husebø 18 Nov 2022

Establishment House Republicans signaled Thursday they oppose impeaching President Joe Biden after reclaiming the majority.

While conservative members of the House filed nine articles of impeachment against Biden since 2021, many establishment Republicans, now with more power in the majority, believe impeaching Biden is not a good idea.

“We shouldn’t even be talking about that, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) told Politico. Fitzpatrick recently won his election by about ten points over his Democrat challenger.

“There’s so many problems we’ve got to deal with on the policy front … I don’t like the fact that that’s even being discussed,” Fitzpatrick whined.

Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE), who won his reelection by about three points, said impeaching Joe Biden, like Democrats impeached former President Donald Trump for a “perfect phone call,” is not appealing to independents.

“I want to warn our colleagues: There may be some activists in our party that want impeachment. But I can tell you that the swing voters and the independent voters don’t. …We change leadership by elections, impeachment is the outlier,” Bacon said.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) echoed the establishment House members’ opposition. Cole won his district by about 30 points. “The failure to win the Senate hurts a lot, and I think, to be honest, the margin does make a difference. A lot of the people that put us in the majority are from relatively moderate seats. I would hate to put them in that position unless there was an overwhelming reason to” impeach, Cole said.

In the past two years, nine articles of impeachment of been filed against Biden. Reasons for impeachment range from selling oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign nations, the open southern border, pandemic overreach, and the deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID), a conservative fighter in the House, stated in September that Republicans will investigate Biden, which will lead Republicans to an “appropriate conclusion” of whether to impeach Biden.

“When we get control, we need to launch investigations and let that lead us to the appropriate conclusion and repercussions,” Banks told Axios.

Likely House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy also told Axios before the midterm election he was only focused on winning back the House from Rep. Nancy Pelosi. “We just put out the Commitment to America, that’s what we’re focused on,” he said.

The White House counsel’s office spokesman, Ian Sams, has pushed back on the possibility of Republicans holding Biden accountable for his failures.

“Instead of working with President Biden to address issues important to the American people, like lower costs, congressional Republicans’ top priority is to go after President Biden with politically-motivated attacks chock full of long-debunked conspiracy theories,” he told Politico.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Very sad.  **nononono*
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

Can we start with Mayorkas and work our way up?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

That is the plan. Until the MAGA and conservatives get out of the GOP and create a OPPOSITION NOTHING CHANGES. Keep electing the allowed RINOS by the Uniparty and hope for different results. That will work! 22222frying pan

Maybe so, but the fact of the matter is, the Senate would vote to not convict about 10 seconds after the articles of impeachment were forwarded from the House, so it really would be a pointless exercise.  There is no way in Heck that there would ever be sufficient Dem votes in the Senate to convict, so why waste the time and the very limited political capital the House currently has?

There's no point in impeaching biden.
He won't be removed.
If anything, the leftists and press may use such an undertaking as leverage to win MORE points for themselves and against the red side.

There IS something to be achieved by impeaching the likes of Mayorkas and Garland.

They won't be removed, either.
But they will be EXPOSED.
And that's what counts.

Hmmm... reveal enough about Mayorkas, and he might just resign "to escape" back into the shadows...

Think that's the best play right now. There is so much sleaze out there, especially with the Bidens. Just bring it all to light.

Frankly I hope it'd send Old Sniffy spiraling off the rails (even more than he is now). Force a Dem 25th amendment civil war.

See that as the real goal here.

How many of these dirtbags would not impeach Biden, but did vote to impeach Trump-?
