Senator John Fetterman, Democrat of Pennsylvania, challenged Republicans to impeach President Biden on Wednesday, insisting that “sometimes you just have to call their bulls–t.”
“Go ahead, do it. I challenge you,” Fetterman told a small group of reporters in his Capitol Hill office when asked about a Republican Party impeachment campaign, according to HuffPost.
“If you can find votes, go for it, because you’re going to lose. He’s a loser,” Fetterman said.

Last week, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said an impeachment inquiry against Biden would only move forward if there was a formal vote in the House.
“It would just be like a big circle on the right boundary,” Fetterman added. “Sometimes you just have to call their bulls–t. If they want to threaten, then let’s see.”
Fetterman, who spent about six weeks at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center earlier this year seeking treatment for clinical depression, also snapped photos of former President Trump during the session with reporters.
“Your man has what, three or four indictments now? Trump has a mug shot and he’s been impeached twice,” Fetterman added, according to NBC. “I’m just tired of seeing a few out there talking like they’re tough.”

Sources recently told Fox News Digital that House Republican leaders plan to launch an impeachment inquiry against Biden this month.
The president and his son Hunter Biden are under scrutiny by three separate Republican Party-led committees for allegations of bribery and other forms of corruption in the latter’s foreign business dealings. They’re also looking at a near-settled plea deal between Hunter Biden and the Justice Department in a years-long first-son tax investigation — though that deal has since fallen through.
The House of Representatives returns September 12 from its six-week August recess, by which time the impeachment inquiry will likely take a back seat to the race for Congress to reach a deal on government funding for here on September 30 – otherwise he would risk partial defeat. government shutdown.
