Republicans have made a number of allegations about Biden but so far have not provided any evidence of crimes by the president.
Gaetz conceded that Republicans might not have the votes to impeach Biden. “At least if we take votes the American people will see who’s fighting for them and who’s willing to tolerate corruption and business as usual,” he said.
