House Republicans are working on a bill to impeached President Joe Biden, but they haven’t yet decided how to proceed.
The House Judiciary Committee is expected to approve the measure Thursday.
The committee is expected also to vote on a resolution to hold Biden in contempt of Congress, which could lead to the impeachment of the president.
The panel also plans to hold a hearing on the issue.
A spokesman for Rep. Trent Franks, the top Republican on the panel, declined to comment on the possibility of a Biden impeachment.
The Judiciary Committee has already voted to indict Biden twice.
But a third vote would be a big boost for Republicans, who have faced criticism for failing to hold the former president to account for his actions in the years since he was sworn in as the nation’s 41st president.
While the House Judiciary is expected vote on the impeachment resolution, Franks has indicated he will push for a separate vote that would hold Biden to account in his own committee.
Franks said he is open to that, but he has yet to make a decision on whether to vote for a resolution.
He said he wants to “see what happens.”
Franks, a former prosecutor, is the only member of Congress who has not yet been charged with any crime.
“I’m hopeful that they’re going to go through the process,” Franks said.
“It’s up to them.
But at this point, I’m not going to commit to anything.”
The Judiciary Committee will hold a series of hearings this week on Biden’s conduct.
Republicans have also scheduled a hearing for Monday on the Trump administration’s response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The hearing is expected for 1:30 p.m.
Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, is among a group of Democrats who are pushing for Biden’s impeachment.
Speier has said the panel would consider a resolution of no confidence in the vice president.
Biden was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 2020.
He has not been charged in connection with any of the events in Charlottesville.
Speier has accused the president of trying to shield white supremacists and neo-Nazis from justice, and has urged Republicans to hold hearings into Trump’s actions.
