“🙅♀️ Boebert’s Biden Impeachment Plan: a Whole Lotta ‘Nuh-Uh’ from All 🎭”
Representative Lauren Boebert suddenly pulled a U-turn 🔄 on bringing her impeachment case against President Biden to the House floor, now opting to send it to a couple of committees instead. The whole ‘impeach-Biden’ move was branded as “premature” even by her own party’s bigwigs. 🤷♂️
In a plot twist that would make M. Night Shyamalan say “Didn’t see that coming!” 🎬, Representative Lauren Boebert hit the brakes 🛑 on her mission to impeach President Joe Biden. After a whole lotta chest-thumping, Boebert announced she would instead refer the impeachment resolution to the House Committee on Homeland Security and the Judiciary Committee.
Her U-turn isn’t getting her lost in GPS land, though. Boebert sees this as a victory, saying, “We should have been working on impeachment since we took hold of the gavels in this Congress. And I didn’t see any progress in the committees.” Makes you wonder, is this a strategic shift or a realization of playing in the big leagues? 🤔
Originally, Boebert was all set to use a unique legislative tool, the ‘privileged motion’ 🛠️, to bypass committee politics and call for a floor vote on her impeachment resolution against Biden. The hot button issue? His management of the southern border.
But if you thought Boebert’s fellow Republicans were pumping their fists in the air, think again. The GOP leadership tossed a wet blanket on her plan. ❌ The House Speaker Kevin McCarthy weighed in, suggesting the move was “premature”. He insisted ongoing investigations into the Biden administration by the Judiciary and Oversight Committees, where Boebert herself is a member, needed to run their course. 🕵️♂️
“I think just running something on the floor isn’t fair to the American public,” McCarthy opined. What’s more, he stressed they weren’t about to use impeachment as a political dodgeball. 🏐 He also aired concerns that this resolution could disrupt ongoing probes.
In a party meeting, McCarthy reportedly encouraged the team to back off supporting Boebert’s move. This provokes a big ol’ question: Are our elected officials playing a game of political chess or genuinely concerned about fair investigations? 🤷♀️
Now here’s a thought, imagine if we could direct all this impeachment energy into something a bit more…productive? 🌍💡 What do you think? Is this a strategic move to gain popularity or a genuine attempt to hold the president accountable? 🤨
