Republicans supported McCarthy’s efforts to impeach Biden

The untimely decision of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican Kevin McCarthy, to start an investigation, and then impeach President Joe Biden, seems to have the support of even the most reluctant Republicans, and some The party’s lawmaker insists that. that it was done quickly instead of prolonging the process until the 2024 election year.

McCarthy opened and closed a closed-door meeting with Republican lawmakers on Wednesday where he justified his reasons for the investigation requested by former President Donald Trump, the favorite to win the party’s presidential nomination and face Biden next year.

The White House has moved to combat allegations against the president about his son Hunter.

In a 14-page memo to media directors, the White House urged them to accurately report “unprecedented and unsubstantiated allegations that Republicans are justifying an investigation because of a impeachment trial.”

The House speaker is at a turning point in politics, as right-wing lawmakers allied with Trump fight daily to oust him from office.

Republicans have tried to link Biden to his son Hunter’s business dealings and distract from the legal dangers Trump faces as the two men challenge for the White House for a second term. Trump has been impeached twice and acquitted, and now faces four concurrent criminal trials, including an attempt to overturn the 2020 election, in which Biden defeated him. Both situations are unprecedented for a president or former president.

Some Republican lawmakers think the sooner they turn against Biden, the better.

“I hope we can get this done as soon as possible,” said Rep. James Comer, chairman of the Oversight Committee, which led the investigation.

On the other hand, McCarthy’s decision to open the investigation does not appear to have appeased right-wing lawmakers, whose votes he must win for his most pressing task: convincing the Republican majority to approve spending bills that needed to avoid a government shutdown. for two weeks.

The Republican hard-right wants McCarthy to cut federal spending below the level Biden agreed to for the budget agreed upon months ago. And that position means a real risk of a government shutdown if they don’t fund the government by September 30, when the money runs out.
