Trump's Impeachment EXPUNGED?! GOP Leader Says...

Linkedin Share

There is little doubt that Donald Trump was one of the most targeted American lawmakers of all time, with perhaps only Abe Lincoln maintaining a claim to the top spot there.

But even Lincoln wasn’t impeached twice, (or once for that matter).

And while Trump double-down certainly sounds grim in the whole scheme of things, he was also acquitted twice, leading many to wonder if his impeachments were merely political plays meant to tarnish his record ahead of his potential reelection campaigns.

If they were, it appears as though Kevin McCarthy has a solution for that.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., says he will “look at” the possibility of expunging impeachments against former President Donald Trump, should a resolution be brought forward.

McCarthy’s remarks came on Thursday during his weekly press conference when he was asked about “interest among some rank-and-file Republicans” to introduce a resolution that could “expunge” one or both impeachments against Trump.

It wasn’t gong to be top priority, however.

McCarthy, noting that House Republicans have a more centralized focus on issues related to the economy and national security, said he is open to the idea of looking further into the matter surrounding Trump and insisted that he understands how some members feel about the issue.

“When you watch what he went through, I would understand why members would want to bring that forward. Our first priority is to get our economy back on track, secure our borders, make our streets safe again, give parents the opportunity to have a say in their education, and actually hold government accountable. But I understand why individuals want to do it, and we’d look at it,” McCarthy said.

Of course, it would be rather difficult to succeed at this time, as the Democrat-controlled Senate would almost certainly shut it down with a swiftness.
