That does NOT mean House Republicans won’t go a wasteful fishing expedition ….
Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) told a small group of reporters this morning that there are “probably not” high crimes or misdemeanors that Joe Biden has committed, The Messenger reports.
But he still plans to vote to authorize the impeachment inquiry.
“With the House prepared to formally launch its impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, Republican senators are suggesting it’ll face a chilly reception in their chamber if it gets that far,” Politico reports.
“Even as they vow to keep an open mind if new, compelling evidence comes forward, GOP senators fear the move will only take away energy from other priorities and exacerbate already high partisan tensions on Capitol Hill.”
