Washington D.C. – Following the announcement by Speaker Kevin McCarthy directing House Committees to open an impeachment inquiry targeting President Biden, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“This impeachment inquiry is a baseless and shameless project. It’s happening for two reasons: because Kevin McCarthy knows his speakership is hanging by a thread and subject to the whims of the most extreme right wing of his caucus, and because Republicans are desperate to divert attention away from the 91 felony counts facing Donald Trump. Meanwhile this Republican-led House is also threatening to shut down the federal government, which would be another senseless blow to the American people. With 2024 right around the corner, voters will not forget what a disaster this House has been. We’re confident they will show McCarthy and his far-right masters the door.”
