THE HILL: White House Steps Up Attacks on Impeachment with GOP Moderates in Mind
The White House is stepping up its criticism of the impeachment inquiry into President Biden, placing more moderate Republican members worried about their seat in next year’s crucial election in a political dilemma.
House Republicans are planning a vote for next week to formalize the inquiry after months of congressional investigations attempting to paint Biden as corrupt. The White House, meanwhile, has spent the last few days on a concerted effort to tie the conference to its more far-right members, including casting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as the sole lawmaker calling the shots. It’s also painted Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) as caving to certain lawmakers by calling for a vote on the matter.
