Biden White House warns that impeachment inquiry 'would be a disaster' for Republicans

Talk has ramped up among House Republicans about opening a formal impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden, perhaps as soon as before the end of September.

In response to the chatter, the Biden White House is now warning that an impeachment inquiry "would be a disaster" -- albeit not for the beleaguered Democratic president, but rather for the Republicans seeking to oust him from office, according to Breitbart.

The arrogant condescension and faux concern for the House GOP's political future from Team Biden is predicated on their complete and utter dismissal, with an overt helping hand from partisan media allies, of the growing mountain of evidence that points to potential criminal and unethical wrongdoing by Biden and certain members of his family.

Biden White House warns impeachment effort could "backfire" on Republicans

According to The Hill, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), after having reined in the more anxious members of his caucus for the better part of the year, has increasingly signaled in recent days and weeks that he is just about ready to authorize the opening of a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

Yet, the White House has remained insistent that Republicans have failed to uncover any evidence of any impeachable offenses, that Biden has done absolutely nothing wrong, and that an impeachment effort would ultimately prove more harmful politically for the GOP than for the Democratic president.

White House spokesman Ian Sams said in a recent statement, "This baseless impeachment exercise would be a disaster for congressional Republicans, and don’t take our word for it: just listen to the chorus of their fellow Republicans who admit there is no evidence for their false allegations and that pursuing such a partisan stunt will 'backfire.'"

Team Biden highlighting dissent within GOP ranks

To be sure, while Speaker McCarthy has had to hold back some members who are champing at the bit to launch an impeachment effort against Biden, he has simultaneously had to quietly prod and wait for a handful of more moderate members facing tough re-election prospects in swing districts to get fully on board with the developing impeachment plans.

That particular situation has been seized upon by the Biden White House as it has highlighted particular comments from specific members who remain hesitant to pull the impeachment trigger and exploited those remarks as proof of internal dissension within the Republican ranks.

One unnamed Democratic source told The Hill, "The White House sees highlighting the divisions within the Republican caucus as a way to further show that these half-baked efforts are little more than a political stunt and driven by their extreme right-wing flank."

The Biden White House impeachment "war room"

Meanwhile, NBC News reported that the Biden White House has assembled a sort of "war room" devoted to defending against a likely impending impeachment inquiry with a team of about two dozen individuals comprised of various "lawyers, legislative aides, and communications staffers," among others.

Their task -- again, with ample assistance from media allies -- is to spin a defensive narrative that a Biden impeachment inquiry by House Republicans has no basis in evidence or facts and is nothing more than political retribution.

In developing that strategy, among other tactics that will likely be deployed, the Biden team has reportedly studied the successful efforts of both the Clinton and Obama White Houses to fend off GOP impeachment efforts and, in the process, launch an effective counteroffensive designed to harm the future political prospects of House Republicans.

An unnamed source said to be "close to the White House" told NBC News, "I wouldn’t say anybody here is rooting for that to happen, like, 'Please impeach, because this is going to help us.' But if they do it, if they go through with it, I think there are going to be political ramifications for the Republican Party."

That, of course, remains to be seen, and it is quite possible that the arrogant bloviations of the Biden White House and summary dismissal of the increasingly damning evidence of family corruption and influence-peddling could actually "backfire" on Team Biden instead of the House GOP as that evidence is fully presented to the American people.
