Most of the GOP presidential field has come out in support of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's newly announced impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden — but there are a couple of holdouts.
During an appearance on MSNBC yesterday, former New Jersey governor Chris Christie said he did not see enough evidence to impeach Biden.
"I think we're cheapening impeachment by doing that kind of thing," he said, though he did voice support for "an investigation, both by the Congress and by the Department of Justice."
"I think there should be an inquiry made about what has gone on with the Bidens' business situations," Christie said during a SiriusXM town hall at New England College on Tuesday. "But I think they can do that through their oversight function and have the DOJ special counsel that's been appointed now in the Hunter Biden situation look at that, as well. . . . Because if it got to the point where as vice president, he in any way shared in the money that went along with that, I think that would be a really significant problem."
If that were the case, Christie said he believed it would be an impeachable offense.
Former Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson took a similar approach, suggesting the inquiry is "premature."
