Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said that talk of impeaching President Joe Biden is "window dressing" and is not expected to succeed in Congress.
Mace shared the comments during a "Sunday Morning Futures" interview on Fox News.

“Well, impeachment is just window dressing. It’s not going to go anywhere. We need real spending cuts. We need real measures. I mean, and when we look at the potential for a government shutdown in the next couple of weeks, it’ll happen before October, if it happens at all. That is a real risk right now," Mace said.
“A lot of folks on the right are going to want to blame Biden and Democrats on the left, but I got to tell you, we’re here today because both sides, Republicans and Democrats, have spent into oblivion," she added.
Impeachment will never get 60 votes in a Democratic Senate regardless of how much evidence we present. We need to release all our evidence to the American people so they can decide if this guy — who sold out his country for millions of dollars — should be president. pic.twitter.com/kmc2DsnoZr

Mace also posted to X (formerly Twitter) that the numbers simply don't exist for Biden to be impeached in the Senate.
"Impeachment will never get 60 votes in a Democratic Senate regardless of how much evidence we present," Mace wrote.
"We need to release all our evidence to the American people so they can decide if this guy — who sold out his country for millions of dollars — should be president," she added.
The conversation comes as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hinted that impeachment proceedings could begin after the House's summer recess.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also said she would not agree to approving the federal budget without a commitment to impeachment proceedings, a move that could shut down the government.
The drama over impeachment continues, but Mace is accurate in stating that any effort will not get enough votes to succeed under the current Senate.
