Washington, D.C. — Today, Indivisible’s Political Director Dani Negrete released the following statement on the GOP’s attempt at an empty impeachment of President Joe Biden:
“Since taking control of the House, Republicans have repeatedly brought us to the brink of government shutdown, halted Congress because of their inability to align behind a Speaker, and failed to complete the most basic tasks of governance like passing a budget or renewing the Farm Bill. Now, Speaker MAGA Mike Johnson is closing out this humiliating year by deprioritizing critical legislation before the holidays to instead launch a nakedly political impeachment inquiry against President Biden.
“This impeachment inquiry comes just weeks after Speaker Johnson told his fellow Republicans that there was insufficient evidence to open a formal inquiry, and after months-long investigations into President Biden’s finances that have come up empty-handed. So, why are they doing this? It’s simple: because Donald Trump still calls the shots, and he believes this short-sighted political stunt will damage Joe Biden before the election year.
“All it would take is for fourRepublicans to find their spines and shut down this hollow inquiry. But instead of focusing on meaningful legislation ahead of the holidays, they’re playing political games to boost their indicted presidential candidate. The Republican MAGA majority in the House is leaving 2023 with no bipartisan accomplishments, no signature legislation, and nothing that’s improved life for American families. All they have is a shameless campaign contribution to Donald Trump thinly disguised as an investigation to top off their year of chaos and dysfunction.”
