Matt Gaetz Warns There Are Republican Squishes Already Trying to Shut Down Biden Impeachment

MAGA Representative Matt Gaetz, in an interview on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, claims there are Republican lawmakers already voicing opposition to impeaching President Biden should the GOP take back the House.

Gaetz also says some of his Republican colleagues are working against the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who he accuses of “purposefully turning our border into a turnstile.”

“There are current members of the Republican majority, people who will be in the next Congress, who are arguing very, very fervently that they will oppose the use of the ‘I’ word, impeachment, in any context for any official in the Biden administration,” he told Bannon.

“And I believe that would totally misunderstand the mandate that the American people are giving us.”

Gaetz: Biden Impeachment is a Priority

Gaetz has insisted impeachment must be a priority for Republicans should the midterms yield control of the House. He notes that it’s time to start fighting fire with fire.

Democrats, after all, did not hesitate to impeach Trump for a pair of absurd reasons that did not amount to high crimes and misdemeanors.

“If we don’t use the same tools, if we don’t engage in impeachment inquiries to get the documents and the testimony and the information we need, then I believe that our voters will feel betrayed,” said Gaetz.

“And that likely could be the biggest win that Democrats could hope for in 2024,” he surmised.

Plenty of Reasons to Impeach – But Who Will Actually Do It?

The Political Insider reported in December that the GOP is planning investigations on several fronts should they prevail in the midterms: The IRS, the National Security Agency, parents of school children, the border crisis, COVID response, and Afghanistan.

While it would be nice to get them all on record, we can only guess as to which Republicans would actually follow through on an impeachment inquiry into President Biden regarding any of these issues.

I’m pretty confident Gaetz would pursue the inquiry.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) as recently as a few weeks ago insisted Biden should be impeached following his divisive speech in which he called Republicans who back Donald Trump “extremists.”

“I guess when President Butterbeans is frail, weak, and dementia ridden, the Hitler imagery was their attempt to make him look ‘tough’ while he declares war on half of America as enemies of the state,” Greene tweeted.

Another MAGA Rep., Lauren Boebert (R-CO), wasn’t shy about calling for Biden’s impeachment over last year’s disastrous troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Who else would be on board?

Representative Nancy Mace, by contrast, recently made the absurd argument that impeaching President Biden would be a “divisive” move.

“I will not vote for impeachment of any president if I feel that due process was stripped away, for anyone,” she told MSNBC. “I typically vote constitutionally, regardless of who is in power.”

Senator Ted Cruz has suggested the House has grounds to begin impeachment hearings against President Biden.

“If we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration,” Cruz said.

Cruz, unlike the Republican squishes who Gaetz claims are already backing down, understands that the Democrats are the ones who opened Pandora’s Box.

“Whether it’s justified or not, the Democrats weaponized impeachment. They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him,” Cruz said.

According to Rasmussen Reports, a majority of voters – including a third of Democrats – believe President Biden should be impeached.

“Republican voters overwhelmingly believe President Joe Biden should be impeached, and half of independents agree,” the polling outfit reports.

GOP lawmakers and candidates should be asked if they’d be willing to consider moving on a matter that a majority of Americans want them to pursue.

With RUSSIAN DECLARATION OF WAR ON UKRAINE AND CHINA READY TO TAKE TAIWAN WITH BOTH COUNTRIES THREATENING THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S. IF WE INTERFERE WITH RUSSIAN DICTATOR PUTIN READY TO USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND CHINESE DICTATOR XI JINPING THREATENING RETALIATION!!! OUR WORLD MIGHT GO TO Ww3! What is worse is that we in the USA ARE INCHING TO CIVIL WAR why because OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION AND MEDIA WITH HELP FROM SOME BILLION AIRS WANT THE (NEW WORLD ORDER) to start! So these NWO PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION BY STOPPING FREE SPEECH WHICH IS THE FIRST AMENDMENT AND TAKING AWAY THE SECOND AMENDMENT SO WE THE PEOPLE CAN NOT DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!!

  • First off, the GP establishment needs to go away, anyway.
    Secondly, I've yet to hear a legal reason for a Biden impeachment. Yes, I want him gone, but for a LEGAL reason, not a touchy/feely libtard one.
    And C, the GOP is famous for snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory, just like the Detroit Tigers under Sparky Anderson. Like they did with Obamacare, they make promises to gain power, then do nothing.

    • The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. It would require a 2/3 Senate vote to get rid of him. Ain't gonna happen. The House impeaching biden for genuine illegal acts would provide a huge contrast to the democRats phony attempts to impeach Trump over fabricated nonsense.

  • Until such magical thespians such as DeZero and the creature incapable of benefitting from cosmetic surgery, kathy griffin, are held to account and THEY HAVE TO HAVE"the benefit' of illegals in their midst nothing will change.

  • The best pressure on these hiden RINO's is to expose their names.... BEFORE the election and remove them. If they are able to stop the " I" word then the people will feel betrayed again. Don't have McCarthy as Speaker and please.. for God's sake, remove Mitch as the leader of the senate. He is purposely sabotaging everything of value that he can.

  • Wait until January when the newbies take their seats. I don't think the mood of Congress will be the same when all the freshmen get there. I think they'll be a force to reckon with.

  • In order to Impeach Biden. and Harris, they have to overcome the RINO's first. The Globalist Consortiums pockets run Deep.
