Chris Christie Says It’d Be Unfair To Impeach Biden Now

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie believes that voting on articles of impeachment would constitute unfair treatment to President Joe Biden.

Speaking to MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell, the GOP presidential candidate states, “I think it would be unfair to vote Articles of Impeachment because there’s no evidence there, but I think the House has an appropriate oversight function.”

His remarks come a day after Republicans in the House unveiled a resolution to formalize their impeachment inquiry into the president. The resolution would give GOP-led committees more power as they look into his family’s business dealings for evidence of corruption or nay wrongdoing.

Weighing in on the issue, Christie said further, “Whether that’s done with the House Oversight Committee, or whether it’s done through an impeachment inquiry, I think what matters the most is that people get all the information they need, about the president’s conduct for Congress to prove — you know, have appropriate oversight, and for the public to make a judgment since Joe Biden has declared himself a candidate for reelection for 2024.”

“That information should be public, it should be transparent, the White House should fully cooperate with both the investigations being done by the Justice Department, and any oversight that happens from the House,” he said further, adding that the president should not hide any information if he has nothing to hide.

Christie’s remarks come amid allegations of favorable treatment for Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in his tax and gun charges. A Tuesday report by the House Ways and Means Committee reveals the alleged ways he has received preferential treatment from the Department of Justice and even the FBI.

He is now required to appear before the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 13 for a deposition. While he and his lawyers have asked that the hearing be made public, Republicans are not having it and insist that the committee hearing hold first as mandated by the subpoena issued to him on Nov. 8 even if a public one will potentially hold later.

If Hunter fails to appear for the deposition, he runs the risk of having contempt of Congress proceedings initiated against him, as threatened by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH).
