So, the House – specifically, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA-14) – has introduced Articles of Impeachment against Joe “Bad Hands” Biden. I don’t in the least find this surprising after what Dems have done, but I do find it to be stupid, largely worthless, and very much not a good thing for the political landscape of our nation.
Yes, it’s true that we have more evidence that Biden has committed “High Crimes” than the Dems had against President Trump. But, from a procedural and/or legal standpoint, that is, at this moment, largely because the Dems had no evidence against President Trump since their “charges” were either wholly fabricated – as in a charge in the articles not actually being a High Crime or Misdemeanor – or being something that he hadn’t done but they were supposedly convinced her might do in the future. And again yes, it’s rather unlikely that truly sufficient evidence will be able to be gotten, given the nature and bias of the FBI and rest of the DOJ. That doesn’t, however, mean you move forward without that evidence.
Also, another simple truth is that the Senate is largely Democrat. Even if the House indicted Biden – which is highly unlikely – there is no way the Senate would convict him, much less remove him from office even if they truly believed that, in his former role as Vice President, President Biden abused the power of that office through enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors by allowing his son Hunter Biden to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept benefits from foreign nationals in exchange for favors. They could catch him raping toddlers in the Oval Office and still not remove him from office, not with either President Trump, Gov. DeSantis, or a pairing of both looming on the horizon.
So, there’s no valid, real-world purpose behind introducing articles of Impeachment against Creepy Uncle Joe. No good will come of it and doing so just furthers the erosion of our republic that the Dems started. It’s just largely pointless and selfish virtue signalling.
They will be the first articles of impeachment filed against Biden since House Republicans took the majority in January
The above is the subtitle of Fox News’ article about this. And, I think that it is both telling and predictive. The Dems broke the door open to using impeachment as a normal, every-day tool against the POTUS and, now, Republicans are returning the favor, having realized that it’s a seemingly cheap way of making their position clear and “showing” their constituencies that they’re righteous. It’s going to accelerate, escalate, and degenerate from here in all likelihood.
Folks, forget the idea of someone playing Nero’s part while Rome burns. What we’re going to see is the Dems and Republicans doing Call & Response ala “Dueling Banjos” while the nation burns.
