McCarthy’s shaky launch of the Biden impeachment inquiry

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden in mid-January 2020. Immediately afterward, Democratic House of Representative leader Kevin McCarthy was critical of the move, saying that the 2021 presidential race should determine the future of the country, rather than an impeachment inquiry. He also called the inquiry “what Democrats do best: dividing our country.” Democrats replied that the evidence of attempted interference by Biden in the 2020 election by foreign actors was too serious to ignore.
