Biden and multiple officials remain in Republicans' impeachment crosshairs

There's been a renewed interest by some House Republican members in bringing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and some of his top Cabinet officials. 

However, Republicans are torn on whether to impeach or who they want to impeach.

Some primary impeachment targets would include President Joe Biden for his handling of the southern U.S. border, among many other reasons. Attorney General Merrick Garland is another top official who some Republicans want impeached over how he's led the Justice Department.

The idea of impeaching Garland gained major traction last week after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) appeared in a Fox News interview.

The Hill noted:

McCarthy said an impeachment inquiry could be warranted over alleged political bias and DOJ “weaponization.” The push has been fueled by an IRS whistleblower’s claims, denied by Garland, that there was political interference in tax crime investigations into Hunter Biden.

"Someone has lied here," McCarthy said Wednesday on Fox News. "If we find that Garland has lied to Congress, we will start an impeachment inquiry."

Then there are more "doable" possibilities like Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been heavily criticized by a number of high-profile Republicans over his disastrous failure at the U.S. southern border.

Some Republicans, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (GA) have moved to have FBI Director Christopher Wray impeached over concerns that Wray turned the FBI into the president's "private police force," in going after political opponents, such as former President Donald Trump.

Republicans have mixed reactions to all of the aforementioned possible impeachment inquiries, as some believe it could backfire in the wake of how much criticism Republicans heaped on Democrats over their obsession in impeaching Trump.

McCarthy is undoubtedly weighing the pros and cons of the possibility of an impeachment vote for the previously mentioned Democrats, as each particular case brings its own unique consequences.

But with the 2024 election inching closer, those decisions will have to be made as certain candidates will undoubtedly run their reelection campaigns on those efforts, which many voters want to see come to fruition.

Only time will tell who's targeted, and it'll be fascinating to watch it all unfold.
