No one is arguing that people aren’t tired of members of our government using impeachment proceeding for political purposes — well, maybe leftists when former President Donald Trump is in their sights. But what about impeachment proceedings being enacted because of actual legal wrongdoing? Is there still a case for impeachment then? Or will certain GOPers use the “political” argument to tuck tail and hide if the ball is in their court?
It’s looks as if the GOP — at least its leadership — is heading more in the latter direction following comments by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
NBC News contributor and co-founder of Punchbowl News Jake Sherman tweeted out comments by McCarthy when asked about the possibility of impeachment proceedings against anyone in President Joe Biden’s regime should the GOP take the House and Senate in the upcoming midterm elections.
I think the country doesn’t like impeachment used for political purposes at all. If anyone ever rises to that occasion, you have to, but I think the country wants to heal and…start to see the system that actually works. What we’ve done in the Commitment to America, but we’re really focused on the economy, on crime and the border. [Voters] don’t want you to focus on it. We focus on accountability.
Of course, impeachment shouldn’t be used for political purposes. That’s not what a growing contingent of people want the GOP to use impeachment for. But how about the intentional negligence shown towards the economy, towards crime and towards the border? Who answers for that? Where's the focus on "accountability" towards those issues? Or are instances worthy of impeachment not considered because they’re actual crimes?
How about the weaponization of our federal government against its own people? Or the degradation of our supposed “justice” system? And yet, McCarthy talks about people wanting to start to see “the system that actually works.”
You know how you do that? You hold people in power who abuse their authority accountable.
And when McCarthy was asked about anyone In Biden’s regime being held accountable through impeachment, he just doesn’t see it.
I don’t see it before me right now. You watch what the Democrats did. They all came out and said they would impeach before [Donald] Trump was ever sworn in. There wasn’t a purpose for it. If you spent all that time arguing against using impeachment for political purposes, you gotta be able to sustain exactly what you said.
Again, McCarthy completely misses the point of impeachment here. Sure, those in the Biden regime are half the country’s political counterparts. But, that doesn’t excuse alleged criminal activity from being exempt from impeachment.
McCarthy might not “see it,” but maybe that’s because he’s not looking hard enough.
