Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dusted off his white flag of surrender and warned House Republicans against pursuing impeachment of President Joe Biden.
McConnell cautioned his colleagues as part of a New York Times report on the frequency of impeachments and censures in Congress diminishing the relevance of such acts.
The report itself is hilarious. That the Times suddenly finds the overuse of such solemn and serious proceedings as a bad thing when they did little to dissuade Democrats as they weaponized both impeachments and censures for the four years prior to Biden taking office.
Still, McConnell played the game and pre-surrendered to the idea.
“I said two years ago, when we had not one but two impeachments, that once we go down this path it incentivizes the other side to do the same thing,” the Senate GOP leader lamented.
“Impeachment ought to be rare,” he added. “This is not good for the country.”

McConnell Doesn’t Want To Impeach Biden
Mitch McConnell’s comments on impeaching Biden are indicative of further widespread idiocy infecting the Republican party as a whole. The moral high ground no longer works.
Democrats impeached then-President Donald Trump twice over a call to investigate corruption in Ukraine that we’ve since learned is widespread and relevant, and for a speech he gave about election integrity that some miscreants blew up into a riot.
The mundane became impeachable under Trump.
Was impeaching the republican president twice âgood for the countryâ?

But here’s the thing – they’ll use it again and again if a Republican takes back the White House. Should Trump win, the impeachment proceedings will never cease. Ron DeSantis? Yea, he’ll get his as well. They’re already painting him as a fascist worse than Trump.
In between, Republicans are just supposed to shrug their shoulders because what Democrats did wasn’t good for the country, so emulating it would not be good as well? Please.
Do you know what’s “not good for the country”? A President like Biden who is so deep in corruption and beholden to foreign nations that he’s practically drowning in the swamp.
A President who has swung doors so wide open at the border that he’s practically allowing an invasion of this country.
A President who weaponized government to the point where it portrays regular citizens as terrorists and actively works to jail political opponents.
All of those things are impeachable. All of them are bad for the country.
The deep state is oblivious to their own hypocrisy. They think impeachement is bad, unless itâs Donald Trump.

Oh, and one more thing that’s bad for the country – Elderly senators incapable of functioning on a basic level due to health reasons. The Dianne Feinsteins and McConnells of the world are dragging down the effectiveness of once-sacred institutions.
It was just two weeks ago that McConnell had a bizarre incident in which he suddenly froze mid-sentence and stared blankly for roughly 20 seconds.

A frozen brain isn’t the only health issue ailing the Kentucky Republican. Based on his impeachment comments on Biden, he’s likely also suffering from a lack of a spine.
Neither is what hes done. Gee let’s look the other way because “it’s not good for the county” to hold those accountable.

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL), in anÂ interview prior to the midterms, claimed that there were Republican lawmakers already voicing opposition to impeaching President Biden.
“There are current members of the Republican majority, people who will be in the next Congress, who are arguing very, very fervently that they will oppose the use of the âIâ word, impeachment, in any context for any official in the Biden administration,” Gaetz alleged.
“And I believe that would totally misunderstand the mandate that the American people are giving us,” he added.
Misunderstanding the American people is a fundamental tenet of entrenched, centrist Republicans.
A poll in May showed 53 percent of Americans said that they thought President Biden had committed impeachable offenses while in office, including 38 percent who called it “very likely.”
At least the people seem to recognize that this President is “not good for the country.”
