With an official impeachment inquiry being launched by House Republicans, you’d think the Democrats would be rather quick to defend themselves and their beloved leader. But it seems President Joe Biden isn’t all that concerned with the allegations.
He did finally address them on Wednesday, a whole day after they had been announced. And if that doesn’t smack of not caring, Biden’s words certainly do.
For starters, he claims to not even know why anyone, let alone the opposing political party might want to oust him.
He said as much at a campaign fundraiser even in McLean, Virginia.
“Well, I tell you what, I don’t know quite why, but they just knew they wanted to impeach me.”
Umm, no, that’s not at all it. And neither is the possible explanation he gave next.
“Now, best I can tell they want to impeach me because they want to shut down the government.”
No doubt, Biden was alluding to the ongoing battle for the federal budget, in which Biden and his administration want to spend ridiculous amounts of taxpayer dollars on unnecessary things and Republicans want to cut spending.
And while the Republicans would undoubtedly get their way with the budget via impeachment, everyone knows that is not the reason why the process has either been brought up or begun.
In fact, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy made the reason quite clear on Tuesday when he announced such, stating that a “culture of corruption” exists throughout the Biden family, bringing shame and weakness to the nation.
Most notably, that corruption includes the shady business dealings of Biden’s son Hunter, in which it is alleged that the elder Biden is intrinsically involved. Of course, both Biden’s claim that to not be the case.
But mounting evidence seems to keep proving exactly that.
And then, there are the many accusations against Biden’s handling of certain national issues that could prove illegal, if not treasonous.
Needless to say, there is no small number of reasons the Republicans would want Biden out of the Oval Office, and none of them have to do with simple politics, as Biden suggests.
