Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee advised that House Republicans not impeach President Joe Biden, but keep the investigations going so the American public will see the facts regarding all the corruption. 

"I think he [Kevin McCarthy] should begin the inquiry, but not file the articles of impeachment, and I really believe strongly that it would be a huge mistake for the House to go ahead and carry out the impeachment because it'll last all of five minutes in the Senate where it will die a sudden and painful death," Huckabee told the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. 

House Republicans have been pushed to possibly impeach President Joe Biden after recent news broke that while Vice President, Biden used an email account by the name of Robert L. Peters to conduct a phone call with then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Florida GOP Reps. Matt Gaetz and Anna Paulina Luna have both called for impeachment on X, the platform previously called Twitter. 

"What has to happen is keep the investigations going," Huckabee said. "Keep the hearings going. Dribble this information that people like James Comer and Jim Jordan are getting, and lay it out there. Even though the press is reluctant to acknowledge it and take it, keep it out there. There's gonna come a point at which the evidence is so overwhelming, that there will be at least one mainstream media reporter who will no longer be able to pretend it's not there."

He also encouraged prosecutors in Republican-run states to go after Democrats and indict them.

"I wish some prosecutors, local prosecutors across the country, might decide to indict Joe Biden for border issues," Huckabee stated. "Go after him and indict him for taking taxpayer money illegally to give it to college students who were deadbeats and didn't pay off their loans. Let's just say, 'Look, if we're gonna play a baseball game, both sides get to come to home plate with a bat in hand.'"
