However, a former Trump administration official recently made clear that he’ll push for impeachment even if Biden leaves the White House.
Peter Navarro says “all manner of things” justify Biden’s impeachment
Peter Navarro served as a senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, and according to the Washington Examiner, he laid out the case for impeaching Biden during a Thursday interview with MSNBC host Ari Melber.

Navarro told Melber that Republicans will “start with the impeachment of Biden” should they win the House and Senate in 2024.
He justified that move by pointing to the “all manner of things” that Biden is guilty of, including failure to secure the border along with the way he has handled the war in Ukraine.
Navarro wants high-level Democrats subpoenaed
Navarro also said he would “lead the charge” to subpoena high-level House Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
He added that other targets will include Democratic Reps. Jamie Raskin, Adam Schiff, and Elaine Luria, all of whom sit on the House’s January 6 committee.
The Examiner noted that Navarro also referenced impeachment in a lawsuit he filed last after being subpoenaed by that committee.
“If, in this case, the Committee and Joe Biden are able to effectively establish the principle that an incumbent can strip his predecessor of both executive privilege and testimonial immunity, just imagine what will happen to Joe Biden and his advisers if Republicans win both the White House and House in 2024,” Navarro argued.
“In fact, I don’t need to imagine this repeat of the strategic game. If I’m not dead or in prison, I will lead the charge,” he went on to add.
U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss ordered that Navarro refile his lawsuit, giving him until June 17 to do so.
