Congressional Republicans are hitting the road running.

On Thursday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy signaled to reporters that he would consider expunging one or both of former President Trump’s impeachments, according to The Hill.

“I would understand why members would want to bring that forward,” McCarthy said in response to a question at a press conference on Thursday, before listing off several other key priorities for House Republicans. 

“But I understand why individuals want to do it, and we’d look at it,” he added.

Republicans have attempted to expunge the former President’s impeachments before.

In the last Congress, a group of more than 30 House Republicans led by Rep. Markwayne Mullin (Okla.) put forward a resolution to expunge Trump’s second impeachment.

A smaller group, again led by Mullin, also introduced a resolution to expunge Trump’s December 2019 impeachment for allegedly attempting to withhold military aid from Ukraine in an effort to pressure the country to investigate the business dealings of President Biden’s son Hunter Biden.

  1. He should expunge the impeachment because there was no basis to it. It was part of the ORANGE MAN BAD POLITICAL THEATER.

  2. While I firmly believe Trump was wrongly and maliciously impeached, where in the Constitution does it say a House impeachment vote can be expunged? My guess is that’d take a new House impeachment hearing to review and prove evidence was false or manufactured. But a new House impeachment hearing can’t be done as Trump is no longer President.

  3. god orders his god worshiping globalist puppets, demonrat criminal party and rino criminal party to continue to preach all globalist agendas to destroy the USA and the world .

  4. Won’t be an issue once the truth is revealed to Americans what has been happening for decades, who was involved, why it happened, when it happened, and how things were swept under the rug.

  5. The whole bogus impeachment episode was brought on by Schiff. This was a lie from the start and the Democrats know it. I say erase all of the democrats lies by tearing the false documents up just like Pelosi did when Pre sr identified Trump addressed the nation. Do it in front of shifty Schiff. That would bring a good laugh on the habitual liars!

  6. If we as a nation want truth and transparencey then by all means we should take BOTH impeachments away. When you consider who brought them and the lies that they told to get it done,then yes rescind them both. Oh, by the way I do not see any impeachment comming for Biden who has told so many lies he DOES NOT know the difference between the truth or lies. He has sold classified papers to China as sure as I am living,but you won’t see them say it. But nothing is done in the dark that will not come to light sooner or later,just a shame our nation can’t wait for it. The damage to our nation has done and be done.
