Mitt Romney Promptly Demolishes MAGA’s Fantasy Of Impeaching Joe Biden

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is not impressed by what Republicans in the House have assembled ostensibly implicating President Joe Biden — or at least suggesting his involvement — in allegedly seriously suspicious business dealings involving his son, Hunter Biden.

There has been no evidence made public by House Republicans or any other source showing payments that went to the now president in connection to any of Hunter’s business activities around the world.

“I haven’t seen any evidence at this stage to suggest he’s met the constitutional test for impeachment,” Romney said, HuffPost revealed. That’s what Republicans have been moving towards while assembling all of this claimed evidence — potentially an impeachment inquiry followed by, well, an impeachment. Romney was the only Republican Senator who voted in favor of conviction after both of the impeachments approved against Donald Trump while the former commander-in-chief was still in office, though after the latter impeachment, which followed the Capitol riot, a small number of fellow Senate Republicans joined the Utahn.

The possibility of actually removing Biden from office after any impeachment has always been nearly non-existent, as Democrats hold the majority in the Senate. Still, one corner of the Republican Party in the House has pushed for actually a variety of impeachments against officials also including Attorney General Merrick Garland and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas — both of whom would also be highly likely to remain in office even if MAGA managed to enact their dreams.

Meanwhile, other Republicans in the Senate, including Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (W-Va.), were also dismissive of the possibility of impeachment, making it sound unlikely the party’s members in the upper legislative chamber would eagerly join ranks to support a conviction of the nation’s current president. Wouldn’t it be such a profound defeat if the House GOP’s own fellow Republicans voted down an impeachment they approved? Meanwhile, Trump continues facing potentially serious threats to his own path to elected office in the form of new litigation formally challenging his eligibility under the terms of the 14th Amendment, which bars individuals tied to insurrection from political power.
