Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy blasted Joe Biden’s Department of Justice on Saturday for indicting former President Donald Trump and warned House Republicans “will not stand for it.”
McCarthy railed against special counsel Jack Smith’s 37-count indictment against Trump that was unsealed on Friday, noting Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden got away with possessing classified material.
“This is a very dark day in America. When you think about what they’re trying to indict President Trump on. You’ve got a sitting president right now in the exact same situation,” McCarthy said in a statement.
“You have a former First Lady, senator, Secretary of State that had the same situation, that nothing was done to her.”
“What even worse upon this, this is a leading contender to run for office with an administration of a current president that has the exact same documents. Even worse from the aspect, there are documents that President Biden has that he had when he was a senator,” he said, adding senators have no constitutional authority to take classified documents.
McCarthy also announced an FBI whistleblower close to the DOJ’s investigation of Trump has come forward to Republicans alleging the government applied a different standard to Trump.
“This is going to disrupt the nation because it goes to the core of equal justice for all, which is not being seen today, and we’re not going to stand for it,” he added.
McCarthy didn’t specify what actions House Republicans would take, but impeaching Joe Biden is one of the top responses called for by fellow Republicans.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) lambasted her Republican colleagues for not launching impeachment efforts against Joe Biden sooner.
When asked by Breitbart on Saturday what it would take for House Republicans to proceed with Joe Biden’s impeachment, Greene responded, “To be honest with you? I don’t know.”
“That’s the part that literally leaves me dumbfounded,” she said.
“I’ve already been texting a ton of my colleagues, ‘We have to impeach Biden, we have to impeach Biden,’” she said. “I literally introduced articles of impeachment on this very issue on January 20, 2021.”
Trump is scheduled to appear in a Miami court on Tuesday for the arraignment.
