Gretchen Whitmer to Face Impeachment Says Michigan GOP

The announcement comes just a day after new coronavirus restrictions were put into place.

From the very moment that the coronavirus pandemic became a thing here in the United States, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been in the national spotlight.

That’s because Whitmer was one of the first state officials to enact sweeping ordinances meant to curb the spread of the virus.  This garnered an enormous amount of criticism from the citizens of the Wolverine State, and armed protesters were soon “storming” the Michigan capitol.

It was revealed just weeks ago that several of the individuals who attended those protests were also involved in a plot to kidnap Whitmer herself, that was broken up by the FBI.

Michigan state Rep. Matt Maddock (R) said on Sunday that he and a “growing list of Michigan Legislators” will work to impeach Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

Maddock said fellow Republican state Reps. Daire Rendon, Beau LaFave, Ryan Berman, Shane Hernandez and John Reilly were among the lawmakers who would pursue Whitmer’s impeachment.

“Today, myself and a growing list of Michigan Legislators have decided that @GovWhitmer has crossed the line and will be calling for #ImpeachWhitmer hearings,” Maddock tweeted. “The list of violations is long and the call is overdue.”

And, in case there was any doubt as to what triggered the sudden decision to announce their intentions…

This announcement comes a day after Michigan health officials announced new, targeted restrictions set to begin on Wednesday that affect bars, restaurants and schools. Restaurants and bars will be allowed to operate only outdoor dining, and all high school and college classes must be conducted remotely.

Whitmer’s office responded, stating that they “don’t have time for partisan politics” as they continue to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic.
