Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) attacked Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday and accused her of being President Biden’s “impeachment insurance.”
In an interview on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle,” DeSantis attacked Harris’s aptitude for the job of president and suggested she was the reason the House has not yet launched an impeachment inquiry.
“I also look and think about who’s waiting in the wings, with Kamala, and I think you’re right,” DeSantis, who’s running for president in 2024, told Laura Ingraham in the interview.
“In terms of the aptitude, even though she’s a lot younger, I think she’s basically been his impeachment insurance because people know, no matter how bad Biden is, nobody wants Harris, and that’s just the reality, and that’s a sad situation America find ourselves in,” DeSantis continued. Some House Republicans are pushing Speaker Kevin McCarthy to vote on impeachment of Biden. They believe that no matter how bad Biden is, nobody wants Harris. That’s the reality. And it’s a sad situation for America. Republicans have gotten hold of a number of records from Biden’s time as Vice President, but there is no evidence that the president has engaged in any illegal behavior. The White House has repeatedly denied any connection between the president and his son’s business dealings, which have been at the center of some investigations.

“After months of investigating, House Republicans have turned up zero evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden, so if Speaker McCarthy opens an impeachment inquiry simply to throw red meat to his most extreme far-right members, it will further prove this is nothing more than an evidence-free political stunt aimed at continuing to baselessly attack the President,” a White House spokesperson told The Hill.
