Mitch McConnell Won’t Fight To Impeach Biden – Says He ‘Is Not Going To Be Removed From Office’

On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he and his party would not fight to impeach President Joe Biden and said Republicans should focus more on the midterm election.

McConnell argued that it’s better to wait and vote – and that impeachment won’t happen because Democrats are in charge.

“Well, look, the president is not going to be removed from office,” McConnell said at a Kentucky event. “There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen.”

Democrats hold a razor thin majority in both houses of Congress.

McConnell: ‘There Isn’t Going To Be An Impeachment’

When McConnell was asked if Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal warranted an impeachment, McConnell sternly answered, “There isn’t going to be an impeachment.”

Republicans in both the House and Senate have called for the president’s resignation over the Afghanistan debacle, or have called for forcible removal via the 25th Amendment for what they view as Biden’s dereliction of duty as Commander-in-Chief.

McConnell urged Republicans to focus on the upcoming midterm elections where high public disapproval of Biden could work to Republicans’ advantage.

McConnell said voters in the upcoming election could hold Biden and his party accountable. 

“The report card you get is every two years,” McConnell said. “I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box.”

McConnell Won’t Fight

“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,” he said. 

“Most of you are not political junkies, you’ve got better things to do than that,” McConnell continued. “But you’ll be interested in one statistic: only twice in American history – only twice – has the president gained seats in Congress two years into the first term.”

“I think the American people have to decide what kind of government they want,” McConnell added. “I have a feeling the American people didn’t think they voted for this government.”

  • McConnel doesn't have the fight to be the leader of anything. He is too ensconced in the muck, and when he could have stood for President Trump, he tucked his head into his shell and looked the other way.

  • America has a Government that was not elected by the people. The Overthrow of Americas Constitutional and duly elected government (including down ballot) in favor of a installed group of corruption that will not fight for the American principals but strive to have POWER and CONTROL (as well as the money) under their Communist heel.

  • Although Mitch himself needs to be removed, he is right on this one, There are already about 17 articles of Impeachment already filed in the house, Pelosi will not allow, or create a Committee to investigate ( She'd probably just appoint the same ones on the Jan 6th committee anyways ) , which means none of them can be voted about, on the Floor of the House. Even after the Midterms, unless the Republicans take both the house and Senate ( they need 60 in the Senate, for it to pass ) if the Democrats retain either house, they won't allow it to happen.
