Some Republicans skeptical that Biden impeachment will move forward: Report

 February 3, 2024

Talk of President Joe Biden's potential impeachment has died down in the halls of Congress to some degree, or at least that's what the mainstream media wants the public to think.

CNN recently reported that several House Republicans have grown "skeptical" that the investigations into the Biden family will ultimately lead to an impeachment process.

The left-leaning outlet cited "interviews with over a dozen Republican lawmakers and aides," who say that they do not believe House Republicans behind the investigation will be able to convince the Republican conference to move forward with Biden's impeachment.

The outlet also noted that it could depend on two "high stakes" depositions set to take place later this month, one with Hunter Biden and the other with James Biden.

What's happening?

Admittedly, House Republicans have a dangerously thin majority in the lower chamber and can't afford to lose more than two votes in favor of impeachment.

CNN's report indicated that there could be as many as 20 House Republicans who lean toward not favoring the impeachment of the president during an election year.

The outlet noted:

While no formal whip count ahas been conducted, one GOP lawmaker estimated there are around 20 House Republicans who are not convinced there is evidence for impeachment, and Republicans can only lose two votes in the current House margins.

Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, who serves on the House Oversight Committee and is in favor of impeaching Biden, expressed doubts about the future.

"While I think that it’s pretty clear, I don’t know that the case has been made adequately to the American people," he said.

The House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman James Comer (R-KY), has spearheaded the investigation into the president and his family's business dealings, and has surfaced plenty of damning information as far as many are concerned.

Wait until next year?

The outlet noted that some Republicans, including Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), believe that it might be best for voters to ultimately decide the outcome.

The reasoning behind that thought is the fact that even if House Republicans move the impeachment to the Senate, it will likely die in the Democrat majority upper chamber.

She believes it could be beneficial to wait for Republicans to -- hopefully -- win Senate majority control and have a better chance of seeing the process through, since Republicans will likely only get one shot to do it.

Only time will tell how the impeachment of Joe Bide moves forward, if it does at all.
