Dear Mitch McConnell: Biden’s corruption and abuse of power demand impeachment

Aug. 10, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the Senate let the U.S. House of Representatives to do its job and complete its impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden, in response to McConnell’s statement to the New York Times that “Impeachment ought to be rare… This is not good for the country.”:

“Impeachment is a terrible thing as it should be a last resort. House Democrats abused this Constitutional remedy to presidential corruption twice during the Trump administration in a blatant political weaponization of what was once a solemn process.

“The sin by the Pelosi House’s choice to impeach a man who they could not defeat politically cannot be used as an excuse for Congress to not do their job when dealing with proven abuse of power and blatant pay for play corruption by the current occupant of the White House.  Joe Biden doesn’t get a constitutional get out of jail card because House Democrats acted badly.  What matters is whether Joe Biden is fit to serve as President, and the proof is that he is not.

“The House Oversight Committee has proven that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was being paid one million a year by a Ukrainian natural gas company that had legal problems in Ukraine.  It has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt that Hunter Biden and executives of that company, Burisma, called then-Vice President Joe Biden urging him to end the pressure on their company from a Ukrainian prosecutor.  It is public record with a grainy YouTube video as the receipt that four days after the frantic call, Vice President Joe Biden spoke to the Ukrainian legislature decrying corruption in the country with a special focus on the prosecutor’s office.  And it is incontrovertible that after leaving government with little expectation to be on the ballot again, Joe Biden bragged in a Council on Foreign Relations speech about withholding $1 billion of loan guarantees from Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor.

“This is just one instance of the Joe Biden legacy of corruption which extends from Kiev to Moscow to Romania to Beijing.  And this doesn’t even mention his Justice Department’s fervent pursuit of Donald Trump in an effort to disqualify the former President and overwhelming frontrunner for the GOP nomination from election. Seems to me that the key claim in the Pelosi Ukrainian impeachment of Trump was that he asked the President of Ukraine to look into the very Biden corruption which the House Oversight Committee has uncovered.  Trump got impeached for seeking the truth.  Now Biden must be impeached because the truth is that Joe Biden heads a family criminal enterprise where he is the brand and his influence is what is for sale.

“Americans for Limited Government has created a means for Americans to let Congress know that they expect Joe Biden to be impeached.  No more excuses, the Biden Crime Family has been exposed and it is Congress’ constitutional responsibility to use the impeachment process to remove someone who can credibly be questioned about his motives in foreign policy decisions due to his past personal corrupt and illegal enrichment.”
