Mitt Romney says there is no evidence to support impeaching Biden

 December 12, 2023

According to The Hill, the House Rules Committee passed a resolution on Tuesday calling for an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

Yet in a bombshell revelation, one former GOP presidential candidate says he hasn't seen any evidence to support such a move. 

"There’s nothing of that nature that’s been provided"

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney made that assertion during a Sunday interview with "Meet the Press" host Kristen Welker

Romney told Welker that there "ought to have some evidence" of an impeachable offense on Biden's part, adding, "So far, there’s nothing of that nature that’s been provided."

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee also dismissed interest in Hunter Biden, saying, "We are not responsible for the misdeeds of our kids and grandkids and great grandkids."

Romney won't rule out voting for Biden

In addition to saying that the president should not be impeached, Romney also admitted that he is open to voting for Biden next November.

"I’m not going to describe who I’ll rule out other than President Trump," Romney told Welker, adding that he considers Trump to be "dangerous for the country."

"I think we agree that we have looked at his behavior, and his behavior suggests that this is a person who will impose his will if he can, on the judicial system, on the legislative branch, and on the entire nation," the Utah Republican alleged.

Meanwhile, Fox News reported that House Speaker Mike Johnson defended his party's decision to hold an impeachment inquiry vote on the House floor later this week.

House speaker: "We have to take the next step"

"We have no choice to fulfill our constitutional responsibility," Johnson was quoted as saying at the House Republican Conference press conference on Tuesday.

"We have to take the next step. We're not making a political decision. It's not. It's a legal decision. So, people have feelings about it one way or the other. We can't prejudge the outcome," Johnson insisted.

"The Constitution does not permit us to do so. We have to follow the truth where it takes us and that is exactly what we're going to do," the speaker pledged.

"[T]his is the way the Founders anticipated that something like this would go. There shouldn't be any such thing as a snap impeachment, a sham impeachment like the Democrats did against President Trump," he added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
