Rep. Matt Rosendale Casts Crucial Votes on Presidential Impeachments: Past and Present


In a recent turn of events, Republican Rep. Matt Rosendale of Montana is backing the impeachment of President Joe Biden and supporting a movement to formally erase the impeachments of former President Donald Trump from House records.

“Rep. Rosendale supports both of these efforts,” Ashka Varma, a Rosendale adviser, confirmed this stance earlier this week.

With these actions, Rosendale aligns himself with other Republicans such as Colorado’s Rep. Lauren Boebert, who put forth a bill seeking Biden’s impeachment. Simultaneously, he supports Republican Reps. Elise Stefanik of New York and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, are pioneering the effort to expunge Trump’s impeachment records.

These steps from Rosendale emerge as the GOP strategizes for the 2024 challenge to unseat Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana. In the spirit of reversing his 2018 defeat, Rosendale has announced his bid, declaring that Montanans will determine the outcome of this race, not Washington insiders.

Ted Cruz, the Republican Senator from Texas, has voiced his support for Rosendale, calling him a “terrific candidate.” Echoing similar sentiments, Republican Sen. Mike Lee from Utah said, “We could certainly use him in the Senate.”

As we look toward the 2024 horizon, other contenders are stepping up to seek the GOP nomination, including businessman and former Navy SEAL Tim Sheehy, who is backed by National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. Steve Daines, Republican Rep. Ryan Zinke of Montana, and Republican Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte.

As House Republicans regroup after the July 4th recess, they return with a new approach to challenging the Biden administration. The focus is now on the Holman rule, a regulation that allows Congress to eliminate the salaries of high-ranking Biden officials. Some Republicans believe this could be an effective strategy, given the internal disagreements within the GOP over impeachment.

In the words of Republican Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado, “If we’ve got a problem, a policy difference — not high crimes and misdemeanors — with Secretary Mayorkas, the proper procedure is to cut his salary in the appropriations process.”

The choices made by Rosendale and other Republicans reflect a critical part of our democratic system: holding leaders accountable while preserving the integrity of our nation’s history. As we move forward, it’s crucial to consider these strategic steps and their potential impact on the political landscape.
