Congresswoman says impeachment of Biden when GOP has power is “on the table”

Impeachment is the new political weapon. Blame the left. They were talking about the impeachment of Trump the night he won the election.


Addressing the possibility of a GOP-controlled House impeaching President Biden in 2023, House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik told Just the News that “anything is on the table when we are in the majority.”

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said recently there’s a chance a Republican-led House would move to impeach Biden, specifically for his handling of the southern border crisis. 

Stefanik shared her reaction to the comments Cruz made about impeachment. 

“We’ve focused like a laser on the crises in America, and what I hear from voters — even in my district in northern New York, because I represent border patrol officers who have been transferred again and again and again to the southern border — it’s crisis after crisis, it’s a catastrophe,” the New York lawmaker said during a press call with journalists on Monday.

“Anything is on the table when we are in the majority,” Stefanik allowed. “But what I believe we should focus on is conducting oversight and making sure that we’re passing legislation to secure the border once and for all. The policies of the previous administration under President Trump were working.”

Illegal border crossings increased 5% in November over the previous month. Since November 2020, illegal border crossings were up 140%. The federal government has not released December 2021 border statistics yet.

Progressive Democrats such as Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that they supported impeaching former President Trump while on the campaign trail in 2018.

Then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi did not publicly support impeachment during the 2018 campaign, which led to Democratic control fo the House. In 2019, Pelosi opened an impeachment inquiry against Trump after his phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

  1. While impeachment would be a damned good start towards righting the ship of state, it would be viewed as petty and retaliatory after the two attempts to impeach 45. Rush had a good take on why he opposed the recall of Cal. gov Gray Davis. Something like the voters need to suffer the consequences of electing such a moron in the first place by having said moron serve his full term. Yeah, I can fantasize about DJT being installed as Speaker, but we would have to impeach or Article 25 Cackling Rosie.

  2. Elise Stefanik, with a lower Liberty score than most democrats? The same one who heard it against the Trump tax cuts? The same one fwho voted for the gender bill, which will force Itrannies on Christian organizations as employees?

  3. If one can show that (a) the election was stolen, and (b) Biden was complicit in this, then there is an impeachable offense. I would not hold my breath on either one of these being proven.

    I don’t like recall petitions/elections that are based on bad policy decisions. Similarly, bad policy decisions are not impeachable offenses. Biden is an incompetent fool, but I don’t see where he has committed either treason, bribery, or a high crime or misdemeanor. Biden is incompetent, and if he is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimers, he can be removed under Article 25.

    Will the United States survive 4 years of a Biden administration? Probably, although given the institutional treachery of the Democrat party and their media/social media allies, I am not entirely sure. But once we start using Constitutional safeguards like impeachment as a political weapon, our republic will go the way of the Roman republic – which is down the tubes.

    I understand that the Democrats used impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump purely as a political tool. I also understand that Biden, and Obama before him, largely circumvented Congress and attempted to govern unilaterally by Executive Order. I am also disconcerted (a nice way of saying pissed) about the Democrat attacks on the First and Second Amendments. I also understand a lot of folks will say “but Wyatt, the Democrats ignore the Constitution and use procedural safeguards as political weapons, so why shouldn’t we do the same?” If everyone ignores or breaks the rules, then there really aren’t any rules anymore.

  4. Please DO IT! I want Kamala to be President! I know for a fact a loto people here want her too. She’d fix everything, you wouldn’t have to worry no more, just kiss your a.. goodby.

  5. Impeachment was supposed to be for high crimes and misdemeanors…. now it is being devalued as a retaliatory political weapon. Every president would worry about being impeached, especially if Congress is not of his party.

    Just like calling everyone a racist – it is devalued so much, that it has become a pointless joke.

  6. How can one impeach a Usurper?
    Politicians are SO full of shit. Take West Virginia. If it was illegal for Virginia to secede, then West Virginia is an illegality due to the fact that Virginia NEVER seceded. If it was LEGAL for Virginia to secede, then West Virginia is STILL an illegality due to the fact that the Virginia Legislature never agreed to it.

    “The strong do what they can; the weak suffer what they must.”

    The “Law” is rather amorphous, isn’t it?

    > Where the hell are our honest judges???

    Judges who honestly swear their allegiance to The Regime’s empty thrones? Whoever crouches in them? Why, they’re right there. Crouching on The Regime’s thrones.

    Or do you mean judges who honestly intend to hold the wide black line? Upholding the works of any fellow judges? No matter how demonstrably corrupt? (“Hey! FISC! How’s you bin?”) Why, they’re right there. Crouching on The Regime’s thrones.

    Of course who the hell is this our you write of, is what inquiring conscious minds want to know? The Regime’s judges do The Regime’s will. Always. Eventually. It’s the only way they get to keep crouching on The Regime’s thrones. Not The Regime, are The Regime’s “enemies” (list). They have no “judges”. Only “co-conspirators”.

  9. horse shit!

    Leftist GOPe have lied about being conservatives hundreds of times the last 33 years! But they continue to do leftist thing; and not do conservative things!
    2 things since GWB that validate my remark.

    1. GWB’s boy Trey vowed to jail GWB’s girl Lerner for illegally releasing tax returns of conservatives; 12 years ago. I said right after GWB gets a room in “Grey Bar Hotel” leftist Trey will have Lerner arrested!

    Trey did me one better! He not only did not go after Lerner but 3 times stoped the House from going after her!

    2. Leftist, “GWB “Republican” Kev said any “Bush ‘Republican” joining the anti conservative Star Chamber/Witch Hunt would be kicked out! He said that 9 months ago! 8 months ago 2 Ronny hating GOPe leftists joined, 1 is actually “Co Chair”!! they both are still in the House GOP! Kev lied!

    If Kev is Speaker I will give 100 to 1 odds there will be no impeachment! Liberals have always lied. GOP liberals are, and have been for 100 years, the biggest liars!
