Senate Republicans are tepid calls from members of the House GOP to impeach President Joe Biden or other top administration officials, Politico reports.

Although several House Republicans have stated their intention to investigate and potentially impeach Biden or a leading member of his Cabinet.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he "hadn't really given any thought" to impeachment, either of Biden or Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. When asked if he had seen any evidence of an impeachable offense in the Biden administration, he said, "not really, no."

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who voted twice to impeach former President Donald Trump, told Politico: "Someone has to commit a high crime or misdemeanor for that to be a valid inquiry. I haven't seen any accusation of that nature whatsoever. There are a lot of things I disagree with … but that doesn't rise to impeachment."

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told Politico that she was "not going to get into the machinations of the House," but noted that impeaching Biden or Mayorkas is "not something I've heard discussed over here."

The second-ranking Republican in the Senate, Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said that "I think there is a legitimate need for oversight … but, I mean, I think it needs to be focused on some specific areas."

He added when asked about impeaching Biden specifically, that legislators should single out investigative targets in order to "see if we can't pressure the Democrats into working with us on a few things."
