On September 12th, Townhall reported that Republicans were opening an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. This is an awkward situation. The impeachments of President Trump were purely political. There was very little actual information behind them. This time we have a lot of information, but we need to make impeachment look apolitical. I suspect that the Democrats will do everything possible to avoid that happening.
The article reports:
“We have found that President Biden did lie about his own knowledge of his family’s foreign business dealings,” McCarthy explained, and “joined on multiple phone calls — and multiple interactions — with Hunter’s business partners,” the Speaker recounted of the evidence already uncovered by House committees.
“Bank records show that nearly $20 million in payments were directed to the Biden’s family members and associates through various shell companies,” McCarthy continued, emphasizing that more than 150 transactions involving the Biden family and other business associates were flagged in “Suspicious Activity Reports” by U.S. banks.
“Even a trusted FBI informant has alleged a bribe to the Biden family,” the Speaker said of revelations that arose from the FBI-generated FD-1023 form the Biden administration attempted to keep hidden from lawmakers and the American people.
“Despite the serious allegations, it appears that the president’s family has been offered special treatment by Biden’s own administration,” McCarthy noted of the kid-glove treatment for Hunter and others privileged to have the Biden name.
“These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption,” said McCarthy.
“Today, I am directing our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden,” the House Speaker said of this “logical next step” which “will give our committees the full power to gather all the facts” about President Biden and his family’s activities.
This probably needs to be done, but it is a road filled with minefields. President Biden may actually become a sympathetic character as his slips further into the mental challenges he has exhibited in recent years. There will also be cries of ‘it’s political’ regardless of how much evidence turns up. This is something to follow closely. I don’t want to see either party get away with sweeping any criminal activity that occurred under the rug.
