During his Iowa Town Hall on Tuesday, former President Donald Trump expressed his frustration with the GOP-controlled House for not impeaching President Joe Biden. Trump pointed out the mounting evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Biden, and criticized Speaker McCarthy and his ally Marjorie Taylor Greene for their lack of action.
Trump called on House Republicans to impeach Biden, questioning why they had not taken action despite impeaching him over a phone call that he considered to be perfect. Trump argued that Biden should be impeached for receiving tens of millions of dollars, highlighting the alleged bribes received by Hunter Biden and the rest of the Biden family from foreign countries.
Many GOP voters have grown increasingly angry with Speaker McCarthy and Greene for their perceived inaction. They believe that Biden’s alleged lawlessness should be met with consequences, and they see the lack of impeachment proceedings as a failure on the part of the GOP leadership.
In response to the criticism, McCarthy and Greene issued strongly worded statements vowing to hold Biden accountable. However, their words have not translated into action, leading many to suspect that there may be ulterior motives at play. Some speculate that McCarthy and Greene’s ties to globalist deep-state donors may influence their decision to not pursue impeachment.
One incident that further fueled suspicions about Greene’s intentions occurred when she referred to congresswoman Lauren Boebert using a derogatory term. Boebert had filed articles of impeachment against Biden, which enraged Greene. House Speaker McCarthy, who has repeatedly expressed his opposition to a Biden impeachment inquiry, did nothing to hold Greene accountable for her behavior.
In fact, McCarthy himself has been critical of Boebert’s actions. In a meeting with the GOP House Caucus, McCarthy reportedly discouraged members from supporting Boebert’s impeachment articles, arguing that the case and argument should be made before bringing it to the floor. This further highlighted the divide within the GOP regarding the impeachment of Biden.
Polling data indicates that a majority of GOP voters actually support the impeachment of Biden, further highlighting the disconnect between the party leadership and its base. McCarthy and Greene seem to be at odds with the wishes of their own party members and the former president.
Overall, the frustration expressed by Trump and many GOP voters reflects their belief that Biden should be held accountable for his alleged wrongdoing. They argue that the lack of action by McCarthy and Greene undermines their credibility and raises doubts about their true motivations. As the debate continues, it remains to be seen whether there will be any significant consequences for Biden’s actions or if the GOP leadership will ultimately heed the desires of their constituents.
