Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said he doesn’t see any evidence to justify House Republicans authorizing an impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden.
During his appearance on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press‘ Sunday, Romney was asked if he has seen any evidence that rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors, to warrant Biden’s removal from office.
“I don’t see any evidence of that at all,” Romney said. “I think before you begin an impeachment inquiry, you ought to have some evidence, some inclination that there’s been wrongdoing, and so far there’s nothing of that nature that’s been provided.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., has been accusing the Biden family of engaging in shady business, and claims Biden benefited from their business dealings while serving as vice president and was influenced by it. He is yet to provide any substantial evidence to support his claims.
Republicans introduced a resolution to formalize the impeachment inquiry against Biden last week and plans to vote on it this coming week.
Romney said Sunday that if he was in the House he would oppose it because of the lack of evidence.
“If I were in the House, I’d vote against it, unless they were able to bring forward evidence that suggested there were a high crime or misdemeanor that had been committed,” he said. “But so far, that hasn’t been the case.”
