Trump threatens to primary House Republicans who won’t impeach Biden: ‘They do nothing!’

Former President Donald Trump has threatened to primary congressional Republicans who refuse to impeach President Joe Biden.

Speaking at a campaign rally this Saturday in Erie, Pennsylvania, he lashed out at Republicans who have chosen to do nothing in the face of all the evidence against President Biden and his family.

“The biggest complaint I get … is that the Republicans find out this information and then they do nothing about it! They don’t do anything about it! And it all dies, you know. They die,” he began.

“The radical lunatic Democrats, they impeach me, they indict me, they rig our elections. And the Republicans … they’re good people, but they don’t fight the way they’re supposed to fight. The others are dirty, sick players, and the Republicans are very high class. They’ve got to be a little bit lower class, I suspect,” he added.


He continued by chastising Republicans for prioritizing “other things.”

“Any Republican that doesn’t act on Democrat fraud should be immediately primaried and get out. Out. And we have some. You know, you show them the facts: 10 million here, 10 million there, this came in here, that came in, that came in,” he said.

“‘Oh, that’s too bad, but we have to worry about other things.’ You don’t have to worry about other things. You gotta stop it,” he added.

And lastly, the former president urged Republicans to stop being the nice guys and start playing hardball like their Democrat peers.

“They [Democrats] play a different game. These people are corrupt as hell, and they play a different game. They play a much tougher game of hardball, and the Republicans have to play … tough,”  he said.

“And honestly, if they’re not willing to do it — we’ve got a lot of good, tough Republicans around — then people are going to run against them, and people are going to win, and they’re going to get my endorsement every single time. And they’re going to win because we win almost every race when we endorse,” he added.

The remarks came four days after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced from the Capitol that Republicans are considering launching an impeachment inquiry against the president.

“McCarthy said the questions House Republicans are raising about the Biden family finances need to be investigated. So far, he acknowledged, the House’s probes have not proven any wrongdoing, but an impeachment inquiry ‘allows Congress to get the information to be able to know the truth,'” according to the Associated Press.

However, in response to his announcement, a number of Republicans cried foul.

“There are some people that aren’t going to be happy until everybody in Washington gets impeached. And it just looks like that’s the road we’re going down,” Rep. Tony Gonzales, one of the aforementioned Republicans, told Politico.

“Impeachment is going to suck all the oxygen out of this place. … The people back at home in my district are worried about inflation, worried about the border, their kids being safe in school — you know, real issues,” he added.

Rep. Mike Lawler, described by Politico as “one of the GOP’s most endangered incumbents” going into the 2024 race, also had thoughts.

“Are the [investigations] producing enough facts and evidence that warrant taking it to the next step? I don’t think it’s there at the moment,” he said to Politico.

Even Sen. John Kennedy complained, reportedly saying that impeachment shouldn’t be considered until the threshold of “high crimes and misdemeanors” has been reached.

“I’m not going to support impeaching somebody just because I don’t like their politics,” he said, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile, Rep. Ken Buck reportedly called McCarthy’s remarks “impeachment theater,” and Rep. Richard Hudson said “no one is seriously talking about  impeachment.”

Buoyed by all this pushback, the White House lashed out at McCarthy on Thursday, telling The Hill in an exclusive statement that he should listen to his critics.

The White House specifically called McCarthy’s Tuesday remarks “a ridiculous, baseless stunt, intended to attack the President at a time when House Republicans should instead be joining the President to focus on the important issues facing the American people.”

“But just as soon as McCarthy floated this stunt, he was met with resistance — from members of his own party and even his own caucus,” the Whitehouse added.

“The American people want their leaders in Congress to spend their time working with the President on important issues like continuing to lower costs, create good-paying jobs, and strengthen health care. Regardless of these baseless stunts, President Biden will always be focused on delivering real results that improve the lives of the American people,” the White House continued.
