Kevin McCarthy eyes impeachment inquiry in September

 August 29, 2023

Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) is planning to launch an impeachment inquiry of President Biden in September.

With evidence of Biden's corruption accumulating by the day, McCarthy told Fox News' Mornings with Maria that an impeachment inquiry is a "natural step forward" when Congress returns from the August recess.

McCarthy ready to move?

The Speaker has made similar comments behind closed doors, according to McCarthy allies like Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.).

“He is spending the recess talking about it constantly,” Greene added. “I really feel strongly that that’s something that’s going to happen."

Republicans privately told CNN that McCarthy will start the process before the end of September.

House Republicans investigating Biden's family have secured damning evidence that Joe Biden was intimately involved in his son's influence peddling, with Hunter Biden's business partner Devon Archer admitting that Joe Biden was the "brand" his son was selling overseas.

DOJ whistleblowers have further alleged that the department shielded Hunter Biden from investigation, leading Republicans to decry a double standard in the justice system as prosecutors aligned with Biden seek to jail his chief political opponent, Donald Trump.

Biden's corruption

Democrats, who impeached Trump twice, have dismissed the Biden impeachment chatter as a baseless political witch hunt. The first Trump impeachment was, notably, driven by Trump's efforts to investigate Biden's ties to Ukraine.

Republicans have alleged that Biden took bribes from the Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings, which was investigated by a prosecutor whom Biden notoriously bragged about sacking. Bribery is listed in the Constitution as one of the crimes that rises to the level of impeachment.

Some Republicans privately believe Biden is innocent, according to CNN, with one anonymous lawmaker telling the Biden propaganda outlet that there is "no evidence" of wrongdoing by the president.

What's the hold up?

McCarthy must persuade impeachment-averse moderates who fear backlash from the public, as Republicans debate whether to hold a formal vote to initiate the inquiry, CNN reported.

While McCarthy has sharply condemned Biden's weaponization of the law against Trump, the Speaker's cautious approach has frustrated the party's right flank and Trump-supporting base.

Trump himself has chafed at the lack of momentum, urging Republicans to "IMPEACH THE BUM" or else "fade into oblivion."

“Biden is a Stone Cold Crook — You don’t need a long INQUIRY to prove it, it’s already proven," Trump wrote in a Truth Social post.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
