McCarthy: Lawmakers to Launch Impeachment Inquiry Into Biden

U.S. Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy announced Tuesday that lawmakers would launch an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, advancing an investigation concerning allegations that Biden had benefited from his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings.

“These allegations paint a picture of a culture of corruption,” McCarthy told reporters.

“We have found that President Biden did lie to the American people about his own knowledge of his family’s foreign business dealings. Eyewitnesses have testified that the president joined on multiple phone calls and had multiple interactions.

“Dinners resulted in cars and millions of dollars into his son’s and his son’s business partners,” McCarthy said during a press briefing. “We know that bank records show that nearly $20 million in payments were directed to the Biden family members and associates through various shell companies.”

McCarthy also alleged Biden used his official office to coordinate those contacts and received special treatment from his own administration.

Representative Scott Perry, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told reporters Tuesday, “I think that any other citizen that had against him what the president had stacked up against him right now would already be in court.”

Multiple House committees have yet to find evidence supporting those claims.

In a statement Tuesday, Democratic Representative Jerry Nadler, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said, “House Republicans failed to articulate any specific charge against President Biden — because they have no basis whatsoever to launch this so-called inquiry. They have no evidence of misconduct.

“Their whistleblowers have been discredited time and time again. They have not even begun to approach the high bar of high crimes and misdemeanors. And they have done none of the work necessary to convince the American people that this stunt is a good idea.”

White House spokesperson Ian Sams tweeted, “House Republicans have been investigating the president for 9 months, and they’ve turned up no evidence of wrongdoing.”
