According to recent reports, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) intends to initiate an impeachment investigation against President Joe Biden by the end of September of this year.
Multiple Republican sources familiar with the conversations told CNN that McCarthy initiated plans to launch a broad impeachment investigation into Biden's involvement in his family's foreign affairs while Congress was on summer recess, as Breitbart News reported.
McCarthy had previously demanded that Biden disclose his involvement. Last week, the House Oversight Committee stated that the president continued to stonewall and deceive over sixteen times about his family's business.
“Each step we take contradicts what the Bidens had said before,” McCarthy told Fox News on Sunday.
“There’s a lot of questions still. And to be able to get the answers to these questions, you would need an impeachment inquiry to empower Congress, Republicans, and Democrats to be able to get the answers that the American people deserve to know.”
Although the Republican base and many prominent GOP legislators support an impeachment investigation, some Republican lawmakers oppose an investigation into Biden.
Previously, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CA), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, stated that an investigation would be "impeachment theater."
“There’s no evidence that Joe Biden got money, or that Joe Biden, you know, agreed to do something so that Hunter could get money,” another lawmaker told CNN. “There’s just no evidence of that. And they can’t impeach without that evidence. And I don’t I don’t think the evidence exists.”
“Dumbfounded” is the way Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has described her feelings to Breitbart News about those who oppose an impeachment inquiry of Biden.
“We have to impeach him in the House to show and prove to our voters that we’re willing to do these things, are willing to bring accountability. If we don’t do it, then why do they want to vote for us?” she questioned.
A number of Republicans agree with Greene.
“House Republicans should hold anyone in the Biden Administration accountable for the corruption and blatant weaponization of government agencies in order to serve a political end,” Judiciary Committee member Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) previously told Breitbart News.
Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-WY) of the Judiciary Committee stated that the recent IRS whistleblower allegations regarding the Justice Department preventing an investigation into the "big guy" require an impeachment investigation devoid of political interference.
“With the revelations of the past several weeks and the increasing pace of new information leading towards the ‘big guy’ being directly involved, it is incumbent upon the Judiciary Committee to immediately open an impeachment investigation,” she told Breitbart News.
