Republicans have been reaching out personally to Joe Biden in an effort to derail Speaker Pelosi’s intent of impeaching Trump.
As it turns out, Joe Biden may have some extra incentive to grant their request.
If the House and Senate move forward with impeachment, it would significantly hamper Joe Biden’s 100-day agenda.
The Measuring Stick
The first 100 days of any administration are always used as a measuring stick for any new administration.
This will be especially true for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
They have both promised their liberal base the world, but if Congress is tied up in an impeachment, just how much will Biden be able to achieve?
In addition to COVID relief that Dems want to push through, Biden also has to get his cabinet confirmed, something that is very much worrying the incoming president.
Biden stated, “Can we go half day on dealing with impeachment, and half day getting my people nominated and confirmed in the Senate as well as moving on the package?
“I haven’t gotten an answer from the parliamentarian yet.”
This concern has hit home with one of Biden’s biggest supporters in the House, Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.).
Clyburn recently stated, “Let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running.
“And maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”
If they go the route Clyburn is suggesting, momentum could dwindle for impeaching Trump, so there is already resistance among some Democrats to go down that path.
