Mitch McConnell shoots down GOP hopes of impeaching Biden
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is growing tired with far-right Republicans who are making noise about impeaching Joe Biden despite the fact Democrats control both houses of Congress.
"Look, there isn't going to be an impeachment, but I think we have a good chance of winning that election next year," McConnell said in Kentucky.
"The president's not going to be removed from office," he noted. "There's a Democratic House and a narrowly Democratic Senate."
Some of the most extreme new members have Congress have been pushing for impeachment.
