U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) just cast some serious doubt on whether the U.S. House of Representatives is going to impeach President Joe Biden.
Mace did so during an appearance, over the weekend, on the Fox News Channel's Sunday Morning Futures. The host was Dagen McDowell.
Take a look:
Impeachment will never get 60 votes in a Democratic Senate regardless of how much evidence we present. We need to release all our evidence to the American people so they can decide if this guy — who sold out his country for millions of dollars — should be president. pic.twitter.com/kmc2DsnoZr

McDowell began by asking Mace what to expect as the House returns from recess.
"Well, impeachment is just window dressing. It’s not going to go anywhere," Mace said.
For those unfamiliar with the term "window-dressing," Merriam-Webster defines it as "the act or an instance of making something appear deceptively attractive or favorable" or "something used to create a deceptively favorable or attractive impression."
Mace went on to explain why, even though there may be a legitimate basis for impeaching Biden, pursuing impeachment, in her opinion, is a waste of time.
But the problem, Dagen, as you know is, we will never get 60 votes in a Democrat-controlled Senate no matter how much evidence we present.
The question is whether it is worth impeaching Biden in the House even though, as Mace correctly pointed out, the Democrat-controlled Senate will ultimately derail the impeachment process.
For Mace, the answer appears to be "no," it is not worth it. Instead, Mace said that she wants House Republicans to continue with their investigations into the Biden family and to continue presenting the evidence that they find to the American people.
[F]rom my perspective, the House Oversight, Judiciary, Ways and Means need to continue our investigations. We need to show the American people all of the evidence that we uncover. We need to do it in swift order. We need more subpoenas. I want the bookkeeper.
Mace added, "We have to win in the court of public opinion so people can decide whether or not this guy, who sold out his country for millions and millions of dollars, should be president."
But, not all House Republicans - or Republicans in general - agree with Mace here. Many believe that House Republicans should move forward with an impeachment of Biden, regardless of what the Senate will do. How the House handles this situation will be something to watch for in the coming weeks.
