It’s Infrastructure Week All Over Again

Having presented President Biden with their world-economy-crashing budget bill, rest assured that the Republican Party isn’t sitting on its laurels. On Wednesday they presented their next class project:  the impeachment of Joe Biden.

We’ve all been expecting this for a while, right? They muttered about it quite a bit when the Democrats controlled the House, and Marjorie Taylor Green assiduously filed articles of impeachment to get the ball rolling on Biden’s first day as president, and now it’s go time. So, what did Biden do?

On Wednesday James Comer and Chuck Grassley sent Merrick Garland a letter alleging some serious stuff:

Based on those disclosures, it has come to our attention that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) possess an unclassified FD-1023 form that describes an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions. It has been alleged that the document includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose.

Sounds bad, huh? Here’s a bunch of Republicans explaining it:

Hey, wait—I was promised CRIMINAL ACTIVITY and BRIBERY. Instead I got an invisible letter from an imaginary person in a scenario that is a just sad sack rip-off of the basis for TFG’s first impeachment. Honestly it’s like they’re just phoning it in at this point. I DEMAND BETTER VILLIANS!

Not only does Grassley not have the letter, but he also has no ability to subpoena the DOJ to produce it. The House has subpoena power, but the House Judiciary Committee chair, Gym Jordan, who would lead any House impeachment activity, isn’t sold on the conspiracy:

You think about [Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas, he certainly warrants impeachment, but that’s a decision we have to make as a conference…And relative to the president, of course, that’s a decision that’s going to be made by the full Republican Conference and the speaker, and no one’s really focused on that now.

In addition, there are Republicans out there who want to take a different tack entirely. The MAGA version of 30 Rock’s Dr. Spaceman (that’s “spa-chem-in”, to you) has big plans of his own:

This is all a retread of Infrastructure Week during TFG’s administration where we were promised the Moon and we didn’t even get a rock. Bah humbug.

  1. The clip with Hannity and Cruz, Hannity is running down the list of, well, something or other, and Cruz is nodding like an approving teacher watching one of the slow kids reciting The Highwayman for the school talent show.
