Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney opposes House Republicans’ move to impeach President Joe Biden, stating a lack of evidence justifying impeachment.

Romney emphasized that an impeachment inquiry should be based on evidence of wrongdoing.

Kristen Welker asked, “As you know, House Republicans have signaled that they may vote as early as this week on an impeachment inquiry into President Biden, despite the fact that they haven’t shown, yet, a direct Link between Hunter Biden’s business dealings and President Biden. Have you seen any evidence that President Biden has committed high crimes and misdemeanors?”

“No. I — I — I don’t see any evidence of that at all,” Romney began.

“I think, before you begin an impeachment inquiry, you ought to have some evidence, some inclination that there’s been wrongdoing,” he continued.

“And so far, there’s nothing of that nature that’s been provided,” said Romney.

“So, are you opposed to the impeachment inquiry?” Welker followed up.

“Well, if I were in the House, I’d vote against it unless they were able to bring forward evidence that suggested there were a high crime or misdemeanor that had been committed,” Romney admitted.

“But so far, that hasn’t been the case. Look — look, fortunately for most people, we’re not responsible for the misdeeds of our kids and grandkids and great-grandkids,” he explained.

Adding, “Nothing in my family I’m embarrassed about, but President Trump’s — excuse me, President Biden’s son, Hunter, has obviously been a very unsavory person and has had some extremely damaging personal foibles, including a drug habit and so forth.

Concluding, “That’s not President Biden. And we’re not going to impeach someone because of the sins of their kids.”

Sen. Ron Johnson mentioned concerns about possible criminal activity involving money laundering or human trafficking in Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the leading Republican on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, said “banks filed at least six reports concerning Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings that flagged President Joe Biden’s home address in Delaware and raised concerns about possible criminal activity involving money laundering or human trafficking.”
