( – On Sunday, Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Colo.) argued that the House GOP’s decision to formalize the impeachment inquiry into President Biden was only a further sign that the extremism within the party had started to take over. 

Neguse who appeared on “Inside with Jen Psaki” stated that in a new poll, it was shown that 70 percent of GOP voters supported the inquiry, however, he believed that in time the Republican base would recognize that this is an “overreach of their power” and that it is completely politically driven. He added that this was of concern to him and that it was a reflection of the extremism that had now taken over the GOP. 

He further pointed out that the empirical data available also show that independent voters do not support the inquiry that has been opened. 

Moderate Republicans have argued that the vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry had been a necessary part of the process as it allows the House of Representatives to be in the best possible place to face any possible legal challenges related to the inquiry. However, this decision has been heavily criticized by the Democrats who have pointed out that the House GOP does not have any evidence to support the opening of an impeachment inquiry or that supports any misdemeanors or high crimes. 

Neguse argued that he was confident that the majority of Americans would realize that the Democrats were focused on tackling key issues for Americans, while the Republicans were focused on an inquiry that has political purposes.
