On Tuesday, newswires blew up that House Speaker McCarthy (R-CA) was going to move forward with the impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden, reported AP News.
The news was met with a mixed reaction, and I am not talking about the American people or the media.
The impeachment is already facing a difficult path, which was made more difficult after several Republicans openly stated they would not support it.
My position on this has been pretty clear from the start.
The only reason I do not support an impeachment inquiry is because it will never pass the Senate. That being the case, it is just a complete waste of time.
I said the same thing during the Trump impeachment, so I would be a hypocrite to say otherwise now.
And yes, I know people want to see these facts laid out, but I can guarantee you that the impeachment of Biden will not get the same coverage on TV that Trump's did, nor will it get the same coverage on media outlets.
This is just a blatant waste of taxpayer money that will energize Democrat voters.
So, not only will this die in the Senate, but establishment Republicans in the Senate are not even going to support it.
Senator McConnell (R-KY), as well as Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and John Thune (R-S.D.), are warning the GOP House not to pursue this. By the way, those are the two Senators considered to be the favorites to replace McConnell when he eventually steps down from leadership, so do not forget those names.
Cornyn blistered the House, stating, "Since they got the majority, they got the chairmen of the various committees, they could do all of that now without going to a formal inquiry.
"Members of the House don't really care what I think. All I can tell you, it's unlikely to be successful in the Senate."
Thune was a bit more delicate, stating, "Well, obviously they can launch [a formal inquiry] there without tying it to government funding. Hopefully, they can work all that out, how they want to handle those issues in the House."
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) has also suggested that he will not back such an inquiry.
Now, you guys may not agree with me on this, but I am flat-out telling you, this will not only backfire and be embarrassing for McCarthy when he does not even get all the GOP votes in the Senate, but it will also hurt Republicans in the 2024 election.
This is going to be a complete and utter disaster.
