Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) reportedly stated on Sunday that discussion of impeaching President Biden threatens the Republicans’ majority in the House in 2024, by endangering members who represent districts that Biden won in 2020.
Mace’s worries come as House Republicans intensify their attempts to look into the Biden family and Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) mentioned the prospect of starting an impeachment investigation on President Biden.
“I will tell you, every time we walk the plank, we are putting moderate members, members [in Biden-won districts]. We are putting those seats at risk for 2024. We are putting the majority at risk. And it’s not just impeachment that does that. Other issues, like abortion, et cetera, also put those members on the plank.” Mace said.
“Whatever the evidence shows us, we ought to follow the facts, and we have to be better than [former Speaker] Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi really politicized the impeachment process.” she continued.
Some party members have questioned the tone, believing it to be McCarthy’s latest attempt to appease the conservative side as he tries to gain agreement on spending levels.
But Mace insisted that the Bidens’ inquiries must still go on.
“We do not want to do that here. We have to show overwhelming, undeniable evidence in order to move this thing forward. And if we can’t, then we should not. But if we do, then we ought to use every tool in the toolbox to make sure the American people see it for what it is, and we can hold everyone accountable.” Mace concluded.
