More Republicans are speaking out every day demanding Congress impeach Joe Biden over his blunders in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of 13 U.S. troops.
But one Republican holds the key to deciding how this moves forward.
And Mitch McConnell just made a surprising prediction about impeaching Joe Biden.
Speaking at an event in Kentucky, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted that Congress would not impeach Joe Biden.
“Well, look, the president is not going to be removed from office. There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen,” McConnell declared. “There isn’t going to be an impeachment.”
McConnell claimed the punishment for Biden’s failures on crime, the border, inflation and Afghanistan would come at the ballot box.
“The report card you get is every two years. I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box,” McConnell continued. “I do think we’re likely to see a typical kind of midterm reaction to a new administration… Typically there is some buyer’s remorse.”
That’s not likely to quell the calls by many Republicans – so far Senators Josh Hawley, Lindsey Graham and Marsha Blackburn called for impeachment – to remove Joe Biden from office.
Republicans warned that when Democrats impeached Donald Trump over a phone call in a purely partisan exercise that it opened the door to using impeachment as a political tool.
In this case, Joe Biden’s decisions and poor planning directly led to the deaths of 13 U.S. soldiers.
It’s easy to predict there will be no impeachment now because Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer run the House and Senate respectively.
But should Republicans take back one or both Houses of Congress next year it is hard to see how the GOP does not move forward with an impeachment inquiry.
