Huckabee Warns GOP to Be Cautious with Biden Impeachment

(VitalNews.org) – Former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee warned that if the GOP tries to impeach President Joe Biden without mustering any votes from Democrats, it could be a “political disaster” for them rather than beneficial.

Huckabee appeared on Real America’s Voice and told the host of “Just The News No Noise” that until some Democrats decide to join the effort to impeach Biden, “the best thing Republicans can do” is to “keep dribbling out” information about the president’s “ties” to the Chinese Communist Party and his “business deals” while also focusing “on a message” that will get Republicans elected. According to Huckabee, that message should be to remind people “how much better off they were” when former President Donald Trump was in office than they are currently since Biden “has taken the reins.”

The former Arkansas governor also ran for president in 2008 and again in 2016, dropping out to endorse Trump. For the 2024 election, he’s thrown his lot in with Trump again, formally endorsing the former president in March.

Biden’s son offered to testify in a public hearing before the House Oversight Committee. Hunter Biden claims a private deposition may be manipulated in a way to “distort the facts and misinform the public.” James Comer, the chair of the Oversight Committee, ultimately rejected the proposal. Comer accused the President’s son of “trying to play by his own rules” rather than follow “the rules required of everyone else.”

Leading the Biden impeachment inquiry alongside Comer are fellow GOP Reps. Jason Smith of Missouri, head of the Ways and Means Committee, and Jim Jordan of Ohio, head of the Judiciary Committee.

The chances of a successful impeachment of Biden remain on shaky ground in the absence of solid evidence tying the president to his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings. In September, during the last Oversight Committee public hearing, witnesses expressed doubts that any sufficient evidence necessary to impeach Biden actually exists. Even the new Republican Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, has expressed doubts about the inquiry.

Huckabee believes “there’s no point” trying to impeach the president in the House when they know that the case will stop dead in its tracks as soon as it reaches the Democrat-majority Senate.
