Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) has recently defended Vice President Joe Biden’s involvement in the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. Mace, who formerly worked as an adviser to the Trump administration, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union this past Sunday and discussed her support for the impeachment inquiry.
“The facts are everywhere,” Mace said in the interview. She went on to explain that she believes the inquiry is necessary to get to the bottom of the allegations against the president. When asked about Vice President Biden, Mace said that he should not be involved in the inquiry and that “we need to get to the facts of what actually happened.”
Mace’s support for the inquiry is a testament to the fact that, even among many Republicans in Congress, there is a difference of opinion on the matter. Her remarks come after other Republican lawmakers have expressed their opinion that the President should not be impeached.
Mace’s support for the impeachment inquiry comes as no surprise as she has established her reputation as a reasonable lawmaker in Congress who is willing to work across party lines. Mace has previously spoken out against the president’s policies and criticized his handling of foreign policy.
As the impeachment inquiry continues to unfold, Mace’s opinion on the matter will undoubtedly continue to be closely watched. Her willingness to speak her conscience on matters of public interest and her dedication to finding the truth illustrates why she has been a model legislator.
