Nunes suggests Republicans could face ‘pressure’ to ‘impeach Biden’ following 2022 midterms

Though Donald Trump left the White House and headed to Florida nearly a month ago, his impeachment trial in the Senate rages on. But while there’s little chance the former president will actually be convicted, some have suggested another impeachment effort could be right around the corner.

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday that if Republicans take back control of the House in 2022’s midterm elections, they could face mounting “pressure” to impeach President Joe Biden.

“If we start to get good information out to the American people, Republicans have a good chance of taking the House in 2022,” Nunes began Wednesday, according to Fox.

“Now, if that happens, and let’s — for example, we don’t know what’s going to happen to Hunter Biden’s laptop. We don’t know what’s going to happen with the [John] Durham investigation,” the congressman added. “But I could see pressure would become great for us to actually have to impeach [Joe] Biden.”

A Biden impeachment?

Nunes’ remarks referred to a controversy that first emerged in October, just weeks before November’s election, when the New York Post published a bombshell report outlining the contents of a laptop hard drive said to have belonged to Hunter Biden, the president’s son.

On it, emails were allegedly found that suggested the younger Biden may have leveraged his father’s political connections for his own financial gain. The issue was only compounded in December when Hunter Biden revealed that he was and ostensibly still is under investigation by federal authorities over his “tax affairs.”

Nunes also mentioned U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was tasked during Trump’s presidency with looking into the origins of the Robert Mueller-led probe into alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign team and Russia. Initial surveillance in the investigation began before the 2016 election, when Barack Obama was still president and Joe Biden was his VP.

Nunes, for his part, said Wednesday that while he’d rather not launch an impeachment effort against President Biden, the evidence might be too great to ignore. ”

“Now look, I don’t want to do that, but you’re going to have people that are going to be saying that,” he said of an impeachment push, according to Newsweek.

A Trump acquittal?

As for Trump’s ongoing trial in the Senate, reports have indicated that Republicans in the upper chamber expect to see an acquittal for the former president.

“I don’t believe the facts are largely in dispute about what happened that day or the nature of what happened,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) opined, according to The Hill. “The fundamental question for me, and I don’t know about everybody else, is whether an impeachment trial is appropriate for someone who is no longer in office. I don’t believe that it is. I believe it sets a very dangerous precedent.”

Trump’s trial will continue Saturday and could even conclude by the day’s end, reports note. As for Democrats — well, what goes around, comes around.

  1. Yes impeach joe Biden and this administration. He has done enough damage. He and his communist peons are trying to destroy America completely. The military should be arresting joe Biden for treason.

    1. Impeaching Biden gives us Kamala who could be even worse.Then we would have Piglosy. We are stuck for 4 years and then hopefully Trump will come back if he stays healthy like he is now.

    2. He and Harris are both guilty, they did everything illegal with help, to win. They had the media, the internet, billionaires, a lot of famous companies,paid lots of people, have gifts, money, plus more.

  3. Only way I see biden being impeached being a good thing is making sure Harris and pelosi are gone first yes I do believe Biden is a disease and is killing america but I also believe it would be much worse if we ended up with Kamala Harris as president and pelosi as VP

  4. Harris is ineligible under the U.S. Constitution to be either V.P. or president. Her parents were not citizens, she is a anchor baby.

    1. Amen thank you! I have been saying that for a long time but no one seems to know what you’re talking about or don’t care!

  5. We need President Trump back . He is a true American. He’s not like the garbage that’s in office now. Come to think about it, all the garbage that is with Sleepy Joe. GOD BLESS AMERICA !

  6. Pelose was sent home for being drunk and not doing her duty today! THEY SAID SHE WAS GOING TO QUIT NEXT YEAR! I think they have someone else who wants to take her place as she acts like the President!

  7. Biden is confused once again.. He thinks he’s a King.. he sure is acting like one. One day soon I hope he’ll do something good for American.. so far zero!

  8. If Crupution is a qualifier for president biden sure has the qualifications .And if your a Democrat double standards say nothing will happen. Republicans on the other would be guilty and inpeachable if you got caught littering and spitting on the sidewalk.

  9. I agree that Biden & Harris need impeached. His Keystone cancellation & open
    boarder policy already caused great harm for our country. Both are corrupt and
    incompetent to serve for the benefit of American people!

  10. The whole Biden Crime Family need to be investigated and removed from any position of power. Who has control of Hunter’s hard drive? Freaky, Geeky Joe’s daughter is a basket case and it would seem that she had a rather unhealthy childhood, taking showers with Daddy. Uncle Jim was raking in money from China along with Hunter and the “Big Guy”. Our country doesn’t need them.

  11. Biden is not legal president and him and Harris need to be gone. Pres Trump won the election in a landslide and the demoRats rigged the election. They are evil and a disgrace to our USA and Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff will all the demoRats need to be arrested for treason. God is in control and HE know the truth and God is judge and jury.

  12. BIDEN SHOULD BE IMPEACHED RIGHT NOW,BEFORE HE DESTROYS AMERICA,AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE THAT WAS ON IT’S WAY TO GREATNESS. WHY WAIT!

  13. Good he needs to go and he take his worthless wife with him. As a President of the United States your doing a lousy job.If I own a business you would be FIRED and shove-it out the door.

    1. AMERICAN PEOPLE HAD ENOUGH OF WITH THIS VERY DANGEROUS AND CRIMINAL WITH THIS DEFUNCT PRESIDENT BIDEN.

      TRUMP IS A VERY HONEST AND TRUSTWORTHY PRESIDENT. IN ANYWAY WITHIN OUR CONSTITUTION POWER, TRUMP SHALL TAKE BACK AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
      PRESIDENT TRUMP!

  14. Nothing Biden and Harris have either done or incite to unrest and murder, they both should be impeached. Conservatives need to stop playing, get tough.

  15. How about getting the Proof of Election fraud in courts then the Supreme Court to see if they will do their job. Lindell has the proof from experts – terabytes of data captured showing the CYBER WARFARE hacking target computers. China did about 2/3 of the hacking proving without the fraud at the voting areas, which was overwhelming, that over 80 million voters actually voted for Trump. The data shows computer ID, IP address, routing info via satellites, target location, city, precinct, IP address, computer ID and if the hack was successful then how many votes were changed from Trump to Biden.

    IF THIS NEVER LEADS TO JUSTICE THEN OUR VOTES WILL ALWAYS BE HACKED TO EMPOWER THE DEMOCRATS.

  16. well we have the proof a video of Joe Biden bragging about his corruption in Ukraine…. the very crime they try to impeach a sitting president for… but Democrats want us to pretend it never happened… and we all know he knew about obamagate but did he warn the American people

  17. Go ahead and start the
    Impeachments of Clinton, Obama, Harris, Biden and then go after Pelosi, Schumer and Waters for all the threatening things that they said. They said far worse things then Trump ever said and did. Two can play these horrific games the Demorat’s started it and the Republican’s must finish it.

    Then to make sure that fair and unbiased news with out all the lies the Media must also be held accountable for all their horrific lies and unfair and biased news. Twitter and Facebook must be held accountable by removing the 230 protections. They are so biased and this can not go on like this. There must be extreme punishment that is enforced. WE MUST TURN AROUND ALL THESE HORRIBLE THINGS FROM DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY AND IT MUST START NOW!
