The Hill reports:
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is telling his colleagues he wants to impeach Environmental Protection Agency Administrator (EPA) Gina McCarthy.
Gosar sent members a letter on Wednesday seeking co-sponsors for a forthcoming resolution seeking McCarthy’s impeachment. Gosar alleges McCarthy committed perjury while testifying about the EPA’s clean water rule earlier this year.
“Administrator McCarthy committed perjury and made several false statements at multiple congressional hearings, and as a result, is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors – an impeachable offense,” Gosar said in his “dear colleague” letter.
Many of Gosar’s complaints center on disagreements between the two authors of the water rule, the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers, and how McCarthy described the rule during congressional hearings.
Gosar, a frequent McCarthy critic, said his impeachment bill would “hold Administrator McCarthy accountable for her blatant deceptions and unlawful conduct.”

It’s about time that someone in the Republican led Congress is trying to hold McCarthy accountable.
Let’s hope this is only the beginning.
