GOP introduces plans to expunge Trump impeachments

Two House congresswomen introduced efforts on Thursday to expunge the impeachments made against former President Donald Trump.

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) offered the plans to support the efforts.

The reasons

“It’s clear that President Trump’s impeachment was nothing more than a witch hunt that needs to be expunged from our history. I’m proud to work with Chairwoman Elise Stefanik on our joint resolutions to correct the record and clear President Trump’s good name,” Ms. Greene said, according to the Washington Times.

"Stefanik’s resolution aims at erasing Mr. Trump’s impeachment articles following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, which had charged him with 'incitement of insurrection' and urging his supporters to break into the Capitol building," it added.

Stefanik's push

"The American people know Democrats weaponized the power of impeachment against President Donald Trump to advance their own extreme political agenda," Stefanik said in a statement.

"From the beginning of this sham process, I stood up against Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff’s blatant attempt to shred the Constitution as House Democrats ignored the Constitution and failed to follow the legislative process. President Donald Trump was rightfully acquitted, and it is past time to expunge Democrats’ sham smear against not only President Trump’s name, but against millions of patriots across the country," she added.

Also happening

The effort comes as House Republicans passed a censure resolution this week against Rep. Adam Schiff over his role in the Russia-Trump bank collusion hoax.

Schiff, also running for the Senate in California for 2024, claimed the censure as a badge of honor, even boasting about being targeted by conservatives during an interview on "The View."

The latest moves hope to support Trump as he seeks a comeback bid for the White House in the next election in what could be a rematch with President Joe Biden.

What's next?

The resolution could be successful in the House but is unlikely to pass in the Senate unless some Democrats join with Republicans in the measures.

The efforts by the two GOP leaders will at least help show support for the former president as the 2024 campaign heats up, with the first debate scheduled for late August.
