Donald Trump has secretly been encouraging Republican lawmakers to continue the push for President Joe Biden’s impeachment.

Last summer, Trump was seen at his New Jersey golf club with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia), a leader of the Biden impeachment forces. 

The two were taking a moment to give each other the latest rundown on the topic of Republicans’ push for Biden’s impeachment. Greene told reporters after, “I did brief him on the strategy that I want to see laid out with impeachment.”

Greene’s and Trump’s meeting occurred two days before former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced his choice to formally open an impeachment inquiry against Biden.

Last July, Trump said, “So, they impeach me over a ‘perfect’ phone call, and they don’t impeach Biden for being the most corrupt president in the history of the United States???”
