Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville (R) is hesitant about the impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden…

Sen. Tuberville joined a growing group of Republicans who have expressed uncertainty over the House GOP’s impeachment inquiry. In a brutally honest assessment, the Alabama Senator said that while the Senate “couldn’t get the votes” to convict Biden in an impeachment trial but hoped the House at least would get to the truth concerning the abuse of power and corruption allegations made against the president.

“You don’t bring a vote to the floor unless you are pretty sure that you can get the amount of votes that you need,” Tuberville said on NBC’s “Meet the Press NOW.” “I know that wouldn’t make it to anywhere over here in the Senate. That probably wouldn’t even — wouldn’t even let it make it to the floor. But again, this is all up to the House. We got enough problems going on right now.”

On Tuesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy gave the go-ahead to begin the impeachment process. An inquiry is the first step of the impeachment process, where evidence is gathered for the articles, or charges, of impeachment against an official. 

The allegations against Biden concern the president’s role in his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and whether the Biden family used Joe Biden’s public office for personal profit.

“Today, I am directing our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden,” McCarthy announced in a statement at the Capitol on Tuesday.. “This logical next step will give our committees the full power to gather all the facts and answers for the American public.” 

However, Tuberville says an impeachment is a waste of time unless it’s “ironclad.”

“I’m not for impeachment unless it is ironclad,” he said. “As I said about President Trump, if you’re gonna come after a former president or president, let’s not waste time. Let’s know the truth. Let’s be able to bring it out. Let the American people know.”

“We got enough problems up here right now without going through an impeachment process, but they’ll do the right thing,” he added, referring to the House. “Hopefully we just find out what’s going on and, and American people get the truth.”

    • The problem lies with the Voters – they did not give a majority of GOP in the Senate & House so impeachment can not happen. Dems in the Senate will never vote for it.

  1. Why the GOP can not settle their differences in private is beyond rational thinking. Speaker McCarthy warned of this very problem and hesitated to start the inquiry and was badgered about it then Gaetz like a little school boy lashes out against him not we have this senator saying the same thing McCarthy did – They Do Not Have The Required Votes in the Senate to Impeach ! As much as we want this inquiry, etc. done it’s useless to take it to the final step unless voters give a majority in the Senate and House to the GOP in the next election !

  2. An impechment is ironclad but god will continue to bless his globalist puppet, god worshiping, biden crime family since god created and appointed his globalist puppet, god worshiping, biden crime family to continue gods hell on earth for all good people .
