Sen. Mullin to Newsmax: Five Dems Willing to Convict Biden If Case Is Solid

By    |   Friday, 15 December 2023 10:41 AM EST

The House must send the Senate a solid, airtight case for impeaching President Joe Biden, and even then, the "bar is real high" about whether the charges against him will be impeachable, Sen. Markwayne Mullin said on Newsmax Friday. 

And, the Oklahoma Republican told Newsmax's "Wake Up America" that five moderate Democrats — who he refused to name  — would "definitely be looking to convict" the president if a "convictable offense" can be proven, even though the Senate is under majority control by Biden's party.

Even with the five Democrats being willing to convict Biden if there is a proven case, that would not be enough to convict Biden, because the Constitution requires two-thirds of the body to make that happen.

"What's interesting about the Senate versus the House is senators have a lot bigger area, a lot bigger state to cover, so they cover blue parts of the state plus red parts," he said. "When you talk to some more moderate-leaning senators, they will tell you that if the House sends over an airtight case that completely points to the president, breaking the law, treason, misdemeanors, high crimes, they would try it just like they would any other case."

The five senators who have said they'll vote to convict are "senators that I've had some relationship with, but we usually vote opposite on most things," said Mullin.

He said that it will take a solid case before those senators will vote against Biden. 

"One thing that we've asked for during this impeachment inquiry that that the House will send us a solid case," Mullin said. "Listen, an inquiry doesn't mean that they're going to impeach the president. All that means is they have access to the records the White House and the Biden family haven't been giving us."

He pointed out that when the investigation into Biden and his family members, the White Houe was saying that the family did nothing wrong, but those claims have changed. 

"Now they're starting to say that Joe Biden didn't do anything wrong," he said. "They're saying that that that Hunter Biden's business deals aren't attached to President Biden when we know there were over 50 shell companies, and there are numerous bank records that we've been able to get from Hunter Biden."

However, he said that when Republicans try getting something from the White House about the president, the Department of Justice, "which is run by obviously, Joe Biden" has said that without an impeachment inquiry, they're not obligated to give it to us."

This means that the House must give the Senate a case that's "convictable and the bar is real high," said Mullin. 

Further, alleged acts involving misdemeanors, high crimes, or treason must be proven to have been committed when Biden was president, not when he was vice president or a private citizen, the senator said, because "What he did in between the two may not be impeachable."

It would be an impeachable offense, though, if as president, Biden "used his office to benefit him, to gain favor of other countries while they're paying him," Mullin said. "Then we absolutely should convict him."
