Nancy Pelosi didn't mince words when it came to the Republicans' impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

The former Speaker of the House claimed the investigation was "frivolous" and called it a "disservice to our country," before slamming comparisons between this inquiry and the 2019 and 2021 impeachments of ex-POTUS Donald Trump.

Kevin McCarthy launched an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden earlier this month.

"They’ve had months, almost this whole year, going on nine months of investigations. They’ve come up with nothing," the 83-year-old politician told MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart in a recent interview.

"When we engaged in impeaching [Trump] because we had no choice," she explained. "We were accusing him of high crimes and misdemeanors, which were evident. And even Republican senators voted for in terms of Ukraine and in terms of the assault on the Capitol. But this is almost silly, except that it’s so serious."

Nancy Pelosi slammed comparisons between Donald Trump's impeachments and the inquiry into President Biden.

Pelosi also voiced concerns that this investigation would take away attention from other major issues in the country.

"This is sinful. Again, it’s about values," she said. "Our budget should be a statement of our values. And what is important to us as a nation should be reflected there. Our Constitution is what we take an oath to protect and defend. And in both cases, they’re being frivolous."

Donald Trump was impeached twice between 2019 and 2021.

As OK! previously reported, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced the inquiry into President Biden earlier this month, following rumors that the 80-year-old and his son, Hunter, may have been involved in potentially illegal foreign business dealings together.

"These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption," McCarthy said at the time. "They warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives."

Trump also weighed in on the impeachment inquiry in a sit-down with Megyn Kelly, insinuating that if the Democrats had not impeached him twice during his presidency, this may not have happened.

"And this is going to happen with indictments, too," he said. "And it’s a shame when that happens. I’m not in favor of that, but that’s what’s going to happen because that’s human nature."
