House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California said that he would consider removing one or both of President Donald Trump's impeachments.
Despite the other priorities of House Republicans, McCarthy said he would consider removing both of the articles of impeachment against the president.
"During his weekly press briefing, McCarthy said that he understood the members' desire to impeach the president due to his actions during his time in office. He noted that the House's first priority was to get the country's economy back on track and secure its borders."
During Trump's four years in office, he was impeached twice. In 2019, he was accused of violating the rules of the game after he spoke with Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president, about an investigation regarding Joe Biden's family. In 2021, he was impeached for allegedly participating in the Capitol riot. Despite these allegations, he was eventually acquitted of both charges.
In March 2022, Markwayne Mullin, a former Oklahoma congressman, introduced a resolution to remove Trump's first impeachment. He then introduced a different resolution to remove Trump's second impeachment.
During his press briefing, McCarthy promised to release the footage of the Capitol riot that occurred on January 6, 2021.
