Rep. McCarthy says GOP should avoid using impeachment against President Biden as a political attack

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in an interview this weekend that Republicans should tread carefully when weighing if and why to impeach President Biden if the GOP should win back both houses of Congress in the midterms.

When asked if he would back impeaching Biden if Republicans take back the House “One thing we learned that the Democrats did is they – they used impeachment for political reasons,” McCarthy told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.

“We believe in the rule of law,” McCarthy continued. “We’re not going to pick and choose just because somebody has power. We’re going to uphold the law. At any time, if someone breaks the law and the ramification becomes impeachment, we would move towards that. But we’re not going to use it for political purposes.”

McCarthy is aiming to become Speaker of the House if the GOP takes control in the midterms, but warned against impeachment proceedings for unworthy reasons.

“We will take the facts to wherever the facts go, because America’s been through too much with people playing politics with the concept of impeachment,” he said. “But if it rises to that level, we would have the law determine that.”
