Speaker McCarthy endorses resolutions to expunge Trump Impeachments
“I think it is appropriate”…”that you should expunge it because it never should have gone through,” ~Kevin McCarthy
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Friday endorsed resolutions from Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik to expunge both of the impeachments against former President Donald Trump.
“I think it is appropriate, just as I thought before, that you should expunge it because it never should have gone through,” he told reporters of the efforts.
The Republicans, earlier this week, introduced the measures. Greene contended that Trump had been the victim of a politicized proceeding and that newly revealed information from a confidential human source proved the FBI had credible evidence into Biden family malfeasance involving Ukraine. The impeachment effort centered on a claim that Trump had attempted to coerce Ukraine into investigating the Bidens to benefit his reelection.
“The first impeachment of President Trump was a politically motivated sham. The Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, weaponized a perfect phone call with Ukraine to interfere with the 2020 election,” Greene said. “It’s clear that President Trump’s impeachment was a nothing more than a witch hunt that needs to be expunged from our history.”
No Republican House member voted for Trump’s first impeachment, though former Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, who was then an independent, did so.
Stefanik’s resolution, meanwhile, addresses the second impeachment related to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol Riot.
“President Donald Trump was rightfully acquitted, and it is past time to expunge Democrats’ sham smear against not only President Trump’s name, but against millions of patriots across the country,” she said.
The second impeachment saw a handful of Republicans support the effort. Of those, only two remain in the lower chamber, including California Rep. David Valadao and Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse, neither of whom appear to have commented on the matter.
Just the News has sought comment from both lawmakers on their stance.
