Biden’s goose is finally cooked. And there may be no escape for him this time.
And Kevin McCarthy’s stunning impeachment announcement just made Biden’s head explode.
Joe Biden’s crimes go far beyond anything someone could list.
His family may have been accused of more crimes than any other major political family besides the Clintons.
And now, Biden could be impeached extremely soon.
The Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, issued a warning on Tuesday that the lower chamber could open an impeachment inquiry into President Biden when the House reconvenes in September if the administration is not more forthcoming with documents related to his family’s business dealings in other countries and allegations that he accepted bribes while serving as vice president.
The Republican from California stated on Tuesday to the host of Fox Business, Larry Kudlow, that it is entirely up to Vice President Joe Biden to decide whether or not a congressional investigation into the prospect of impeaching the president, who will turn 80 years old on September 12, will be initiated anytime after the House is gaveled back into session on that date.
“The thing that holds up whether we do impeachment inquiry, provide us the documents we’re asking,” McCarthy said. “The whole determination here is how the Bidens handled this.”
“If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for impeachment inquiry. But if they withhold the documents and fight like they have now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know, we will move forward with impeachment inquiry when we come back into session,” the House speaker added.
McCarthy demanded that the president provide Congress with evidence that he did not accept a $5 million bribe from Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, as was alleged by an FBI informant in June of 2020.
McCarthy also requested that the president provide evidence that he did not talk to his son, Hunter Biden, about his overseas influence peddling operation or accept money from foreign nationals.
“Why can’t we get the documents to prove that you’re not being bribed, that you didn’t get foreign money directly in, that you didn’t talk to your son?” McCarthy said.
“But what we found now is that the things that then Vice President Biden running for president told the American public is not true, and he’s now had to change what he said.”
McCarthy explained that opening an impeachment inquiry would give the “apex of power to Congress when it comes to our subpoena power and others to get the documents we need. The bank statements, the credit card statements and others.”
“Show us where the money went, show us were you taking money from outside sources? And that would clear most of this up, but they seem to fight it every step of the way,” he added.
McCarthy also warned that if David Weiss, the United States Attorney for the District of Delaware who is overseeing the investigation into Hunter Biden for the Justice Department, refused to testify before Congress or hand over papers relating to his investigation, it would also spark an investigation into whether or not the president should be impeached.
Weiss was granted special counsel status earlier this month by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Republican senators have contended that his additional powers will effectively prevent Weiss from sharing any important information regarding his probe.
“If they use this special counsel to say that they can’t provide us the information, then it just shows more politics. And it will not stop us,” McCarthy told Kudlow. “Then we would move to impeachment inquiry, and we would be able to still get the documents that we need as we move forward.”
The Justice Department communicated to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), in July, before Weiss was appointed as special counsel, that it was “ready to offer U.S. Attorney Weiss to testify shortly after Congress returns from the August district work period.” This was before Weiss was appointed as special counsel.
In response to the IRS whistleblower claims of a coverup in the government’s investigation of the 53-year-old first son’s suspected tax and gun crimes, Jordan and the chairmen of two other Republican-led committees had ordered testimony from Weiss and 10 other Justice Department officials.
