A county in northern Michigan announced its support of impeaching Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Friday.
Members of the Kalkaska County, Michigan Board of Commissioners voted 4-2 to introduce a resolution that would call for the impeachment of Whitmer. It will be sent to the Michigan Legislature for consideration.
Many accuse Whitmer of abuse of power and unconstitutional actions amid the COVID-19 pandemic and have expressed outrage at actions taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Kalkaska County Commissioner David Comai said that Whitmer signed “unconstitutional executive orders” that were “the primary cause of the economic crisis Kalkaska County is experiencing,” and are grounds for impeachment, according to reports from WPBN/WGTU.
Michigan State Rep. Matt Maddock claimed that Whitmer had “Ignored court orders. Violated our Constitutional rights. Completely ignored due process and the legislature. Weaponized contract tracing databases to aid democrat campaigns. Caused the unnecessary death of thousands of our vulnerable elderly who died alone and scared in nursing homes,” when listing the reasons he believed she should be impeached.
Maddock, one of Michigan’s most conservative and outspoken lawmakers, has been critical of Whitmer’s actions during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement posted earlier to Twitter, he wrote, “Michiganders have been beaten down for too long. Restaurants losing dine-in customers watching their life’s work circle the drains. Thank you to my fellow legislators who are calling for impeachment hearings of @GovWhitmer #FreeMichigan #ImpeachWhitmer #MILEG @realDonaldTrump.”
Michigan Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield, a Republican, criticized the impeachment resolution in a Wednesday statement.
“We’re not the party that impeaches someone because we’re upset with policies that they’ve enacted,” Chatfield said. “I thought it was shameful what the Democrats did to President Trump last year and I would assume that any attempt by Republicans right now, with the current set of facts that we have to impeach the governor, would be on the same level.”
A petition calling for Whitmer’s impeachment on Change.org has received over 7,800 signatures as of Monday. The petition states that Whitmer’s refusal to allow doctors to use chloroquine as a coronavirus treatment made Whitmer “more than incompetent, she is deadly and who knows how many lives have been lost due to her ignorance.”
Under the new restrictions, Michigan residents are required to work from home, if possible, all college and high-school classes are to be conducted remotely, indoor dining is prohibited in bars and restaurants while movie theaters, casinos and stadiums remained closed. The restrictions are expected to remain in place until December 8.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
