A rough measure of how close House and Senate Republicans believe Donald Trump is to new criminal charges can be summed up by two words: Hunter Biden. The volume of Republican screeching about “Hunter Biden” seems to reach its peak in the days just before each new Trump indictment. If past is prologue, then House Republicans are currently expecting Trump to be indicted in Georgia for everything from a conspiracy to corruptly overturn the results of an election to a conspiracy to block every McDonald’s toilet from Rome to Augusta.
House Republicans are currently freaking the entire hell out, seemingly inventing new Biden conspiracy theories by the hour after the latest of their supposed star witnesses–the one who was to accuse President Joe Biden of a great many things and seize all the news cycles from now until 2025–delivered a big fat zero. Rep. Greg Steube is the latest to go Full Freakout, and it’s … honestly, it’s more pathetic than anything else. In a hilariously overhyped Newsmax “exclusive,” the Florida congresscritter says he’s going to file a new resolution calling for Biden’s impeachment for “bribery, for extortion, obstruction of justice, fraud, financial involvement in drugs and prostitution.” That there is no evidence of this is at best a side note. Steube promises he’ll provide proof in a press release.
