"Go ahead, do it. I dare you," Fetterman told a small group of reporters in his Capitol Hill office when asked about a GOP push for impeachment, according to HuffPost.
"If you can find the votes, go ahead, because you’re going to lose. It’s a loser," Fetterman said.

"Fetterman, who spent approximately six weeks at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center earlier this year seeking treatment for clinical depression, also took shots at former President Donald Trump during the session with reporters," Fox News reported.
"Your man has what, three or four indictments now? Trump has a mug shot, and he’s been impeached twice," Fetterman added, according to NBC. "I’m just tired of a couple of them over there, talking like they’re hard a---s."
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hinted that House Republicans will soon move forward on articles of impeachment.
The votes might be there in the House to pass the articles, though changes by just a few lawmakers would be enough to stop the process.
The situation would be different in the Senate, however, as Republicans do not hold the majority and would not be able to pass articles of impeachment.
Fetterman knows that the impeachment process is merely a formality that cannot pass and it calling it out, though the damage could help Republicans in the 2024 election.
