MTG unloads on Speaker Mike Johnson in vent over glacial pace of Biden impeachment

The glacial crawl of the impeachment proceedings into President Joe Biden’s alleged influence-peddling and corruption schemes has left some Republican lawmakers exasperated as the new Speaker of the House appeared to throw cold water on the hopes for accountability.

Lashing out in frustration was Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) who reacted to a Friday Washington Post report that Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) told some GOP lawmakers that a lack of evidence doesn’t merit a speedier pace to move forward.

“In a closed-door meeting with House GOP moderates this week, he indicated that there is insufficient evidence at the moment to initiate formal impeachment proceedings, according to people who attended the meeting,” Wa-Po reported on the newly minted Speaker.

On Saturday, the fiery Georgian took to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to vent about the story which cited unnamed “people who attended the meeting” as the basis for its reporting.

“Not long ago we had a Speaker that believed in impeachment so much that he launched an inquiry without a floor vote, but you were told he was bad,” she said, referring to Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) who was ousted last month.

“After 8 R’s and all D’s ousted him, we found checks to Joe Biden and evidence of a massive money laundering scheme and now the new guy you are told is way better doesn’t want to impeach,” MTG added. “Such progress.”

“We’ll just go where the evidence goes and we’re not there yet,” the outlet quotes Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) who paraphrased Johnson’s remarks on the impeachment inquiry at the weekly lunch of the Republican Governance Group.

“Most of us are saying, look, we can’t even get a single Democratic vote on this right now. I think the voters will reject what they are seeing when it comes to Biden [policies] — but high crimes and misdemeanors? I don’t think we’ve seen that or enough data to really make a good case and I feel like [Johnson] really agreed with us on that,” Bacon added, according to the WaPo.

“Is it pragmatic? Does it make sense? Connecting those dots matter,” Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-OR) said of the meeting. “So I don’t think it makes sense to move down a road unless those dots can be connected, and I think that’s the message he was trying to send to us which we appreciated.”

Rep. Greene later seemed to have calmed down after discussing the matter with Speaker Johnson.

“I just talked with Speaker Johnson and this is what he told me about impeachment:’I’ve explained repeatedly we are doing the methodical investigation that is required of us by the Constitution—but we are quickly nearing an inflection point,’” she said on X.

Over the last few days, Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) began issuing subpoenas to Hunter and James Biden and several of the presidential son’s business associates, including one Democrat donor who purchased his overpriced amateur artwork so things are moving along albeit not fast enough for MTG.
