WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, the House Rules Committee advanced a resolution to authorize an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. Despite the lack of evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden, lawmakers voted along party lines to move forward with the inquiry. The resolution is expected to be debated on the House floor Wednesday.

Stand Up America Founder and President, Sean Eldridge, responded with the following statement:

“Let’s be clear: this impeachment inquiry is nothing more than a political stunt, and it sets a terrible precedent for our democracy.

“Despite months of posturing, House Republicans haven’t provided a shred of evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden. Rather than tackling the real issues facing the American people, Republicans are playing political games with our nation’s most serious checks and balances.

“Members of the House of Representatives still have a chance to do the right thing and vote against this sham inquiry when it hits the House floor. Voters will be watching to see if their representatives put political stunts ahead of the American people.”
