As the new week begins, and with the vote for Majority Leader in the rearview mirror, Republicans in the House are now focused on the larger picture of their House leadership and taking aim at Democrats. In particular, the President
When Democrats unsuccessfully sought to remove former President Trump from the White House through impeachment, they opened the door to debates of the justifications for such measures. Republicans have observed the rising number of complaints and criminal conduct involving Joe Biden and his family, and have now announced their determination to continue the process to remove the incumbent president from office. From material discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop to the current “Twitter Files” addressing the previous presidential race, evidence is accumulating.
This week appears to be the moment for Republicans to declare their intentions about the issue. And this includes a comprehensive probe of Joe Biden. Even Republican House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy favors impeachment, despite the fact that it took him a week to get votes from his own party to lead in the House owing to his prior propensity to negotiate with Democrats.
“Over the last two years of Democrats’ one-party rule in Washington, House Democrats have not lifted a finger to engage in oversight and accountability of the Biden administration’s actions and abuses of power,” he said. “We will leave no stone unturned in order to deliver the accountability the American people deserve.”
Rep. Byron Donalds, a Republican, told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday morning that the impeachment of Joe Biden “will happen.”
“If you find that there was actual evidence of wrongdoing, will you support impeaching Joe Biden?”, the Fox News host asked.
“Oh that’s something that will happen,” Donalds said emphatically. “But what we want to do right now is go through the process of investigation,” he added.

Rep. Donalds is not the only one who has pledged to impeach Vice President Biden. This weekend, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greeene tweeted the following:
Republicans will bring accountability back to Washington. We will investigate Dr. Fauci. We will repeal the 87,000 IRS army. And we will IMPEACH JOE BIDEN. https://t.co/TIRmfr2ar1

Since the Republican retake of the House in November, a number of prominent Representatives have advocated for Joe’s impeachment.
Trending Politics says that Representative Claudia Tenny is one of these Republicans:
“How I feel about Joe Biden? I see this guy as a talentless, career politician and completely derelict in his duty, which is why I’ve called for him to be impeached! One of the things about the Republicans that is kind of frustrating at times is, we don’t fight. We have to fight every single day, right now. I stand up to the status quo in both parties, I have a core set of principles. Can we preserve this Republic? It is all on the line. It’s not easy to fight the fight that patriots fight, but it’s worth it,” she said.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“Whether it is Joe Biden’s dereliction of duty at the Southern Border or his disastrous retreat in Afghanistan, I have called for Joe Biden to answer to the American people in Impeachment hearings. I will not stand by while Biden and Pelosi trample on our constitution to push their far-left agenda. I look forward to working with a Republican House Majority next Congress to impeach Biden and hold his administration accountable for their numerous failures,” she continued. CONTINUE READING…
