Former Republican Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee cautioned Republicans on Tuesday about the potential political disaster they could face if they tried to impeach President Joe Biden without any Democratic support. Huckabee emphasized that without any Democratic votes, the impeachment process would be futile in the Senate, where Democrats hold the majority, making it a political disaster for the party. He advised that while the impeachment inquiry continues, Republicans should refrain from pushing for impeachment until they have Democratic backing. Huckabee urged Republicans to focus on exposing Biden’s ties to the Communist Chinese Party and his business deals. The former presidential candidate has already pledged his support to Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
In a related matter, Hunter Biden, the president’s son, offered to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee, expressing concerns about potential manipulation of facts in a closed-door deposition. However, the committee’s chair, James Comer, rejected the idea, stating that Biden was trying to play by his own rules. Comer, along with Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Jason Smith, has been leading the impeachment inquiry, but Republicans have yet to provide substantial evidence linking the president to his son’s foreign business dealings. Witnesses at the last public hearing stated that lawmakers lacked the evidence necessary to impeach Biden.
