Rep. Nancy Mace pushed aside concerns from some GOP senators last week regarding the current path the GOP-controlled House is taking regarding a possible impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has publicly discussed the potential of launching an impeachment inquiry against President Biden, and Mace seems to be in agreement with this possibility, adding its a “good tool in the toolbox to leverage, because the DOJ and IRS and FBI keep stonewalling us.”
“We gotta hold them in contempt, gotta do the subpoenas. But that is another tool that we can leverage,” she said, emphasizing the need to be “better than Pelosi,” who led two impeachments against then-President Donald Trump, which was unprecedented in U.S. history, Breitbart News noted.
“So whatever we do has to be at a much higher threshold and standard, but I do believe that as evidence comes out, and the American people see it, that is where we are headed,” she admitted.
“And you have to follow the facts no matter where they take us, including with President Biden … And what we’re seeing with the DOJ and the administration, and when this is an effort for the administration to take away the voice of the people by stopping a candidate from running–” she said, adding that “they want nothing more than that. They want to distract from all of the crimes that have been committed.”
“And they’ll stop at nothing to do it,” she said.
Mace pointed out that while an impeachment inquiry might expedite the process and grant the House more oversight powers, “given the politics of ’24, we just have to be better than the left.”
“We have to win over independent voters and centrists. We have the base, the base is fired up. They are ready to go. But we also have to remember that if we want to win the White House, if we want to keep our majority in the House and then go and flip the Senate, we have to be better than the political games that Pelosi and all her minions have played over the last five years,” Mace said.
She added that the evidence must be “much tighter, much better, more overwhelming because the vast majority of Americans, they don’t trust the government.”
“We want them to trust the evidence that we bring forward and the way in which we bring it forward so it’s undeniable,” she said, adding that she believes Republicans are making progress in revealing the vast corruption of the Biden family.
“The other thing that we have to do more of is showcasing the bank records. So we have these dozens and dozens of LLCs but there are foreign banks that we’ve got to hire firms to go out and get those records. We need a bank account with Joe Biden’s name on it,” she, adding that will take time.
