California Representative Devin Nunes said Wednesday that if the GOP gains control of the House in 2022, Republicans could face pressure to impeach President Joe Biden.
Democrats in the House impeached former President Donald Trump in February for allegedly inciting the January riot at the U.S. Capitol building. Some Republicans have said that Trump’s rhetoric, which included unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, did not constitute an impeachable offense. In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Nunes said that the reestablishment of certain social media platforms could allow the GOP to disseminate “good information” to the American people.
“If we start to get good information out to the American people,” Nunes said, “Republicans have a good chance of taking the House in 2022. Now, if that happens, and let’s— for example, we don’t know what’s gonna happen to Hunter Biden’s laptop. We don’t know what’s gonna happen with the Durham investigation. But I could see the pressure would become great for us to actually have to impeach Biden.”
“Now look, I don’t want to do that, but you’re going to have people that are going to be saying that,” Nunes added.
On Wednesday, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a list of 47 Congressional seats it believed it could regain in the 2022 elections. “House Republicans start the cycle just five seats short of a majority and are prepared to build on our 2020 successes to deliver a lasting Republican majority in the House,” said NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer in a statement.
