    The Facts

    • The US White House has ramped up efforts to prepare against a potential impeachment inquiry, setting up a war room of two dozen lawyers, legislative aides, and communications staffers to fight against a potential Republican-led inquiry, according to an NBC News report published Friday.

    • A White House aide familiar with the plan told NBC News that the White House has been preparing for an impeachment inquiry into Pres. Joe Biden ever since Republicans took control of the House earlier this year, and prominent Republicans like Speaker Kevin McCarthy have floated a potential inquiry.

    The Spin

    Republican narrative

    Democrats ran on a platform to impeach Trump without any tangible reason and are now silencing hard evidence and testimonies from whistleblowers about the extensive corruption that permeates the Biden family. Evidence suggests Joe Biden accepted bribes while he was vice president, and he refuses to cooperate with congressional investigations. Impeachment is the only solution to this problem.

    Democratic narrative

    The GOP is playing an extremely predictable political game by trying to impeach Pres. Biden with no evidence. With no record to run on and a criminal as the frontrunner for its presidential nomination, the GOP has to resort to desperate measures that are out of touch with the real issues that Washington currently faces. The American people will easily see through this game, and it will only backfire on Republicans.
