Kevin McCarthy could garner some Democratic support for the House’s growing investigations into President Joe Biden and his involvement in his son Hunter’s shady foreign affairs.
With Congress still in summer recess, the House speaker said Tuesday that if the White House continues to block its investigations into the first family, the lower house could resort to impeachment — a move Republicans support. -MAGA have been claiming for months.
Some Democrats, McCarthy said on Sunday, are even considering the possibility that Biden lied during his campaign when he said he was unaware and uninvolved in his son’s foreign affairs. 53 years.
“I have Democrats telling me now that they are very worried, because they support this president based on what he has told America,” McCarthy told the Fox News Sunday Morning Futures host, Maria Bartiromo. “And at every turn we find out that’s not true.”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said Sunday that even Democrats are telling him they are concerned that Joe Biden was lying about his knowledge and involvement in his son Hunter’s business dealings.
McCarthy says if the White House doesn’t cooperate with Congress’ multiple investigations into the Bidens, he will have no choice but to launch impeachment proceedings
Biden has said during his campaign and since that he was oblivious to his son’s foreign affairs, which were earning him millions. His administration also dismissed concerns that Hunter used the influence of his father’s position when he was vice president to enrich the Biden family.
Congressional Republicans, however, are not convinced that Joe Biden was as indifferent as he claims and have launched a series of investigations into the first family.
Since day one of the Biden administration, Republicans have also threatened to impeach the president.
It’s not yet clear if any Democrats are actually engaged in impeachment proceedings — and some Republicans even oppose it — but McCarthy says they’re at least growing aware of the corruption within the Biden family. .
“What’s stopping us from conducting an impeachment inquiry is providing us with the documents we ask for,” McCarthy said in an interview with Fox Business’ Larry Kudlow on Tuesday. “If they provide us with the documents, an impeachment inquiry would not be necessary.”
“But if they withhold the documents and fight like they are doing now not to provide the American public with what they deserve to know, we will continue the impeachment inquiry when we return to session,” he said. added.
Several leaders in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives have requested documents to further investigations into the Bidens. Those efforts have run into administrative roadblocks, which have led to new investigations into President Biden’s militarization of the federal government.
“The only reason you know all this information is because we got the majority and we hold the administration responsible. It is appalling what we have learned. It’s different from what President Joe Biden told us,” McCarthy said Tuesday of leaked information about the Bidens.
Bartiromo asked directly on Sunday, “Are you going to open an impeachment inquiry against President Biden in September?
“Well, Maria, first of all you have to understand that it was only because the Republicans got the majority that we found out that what President Biden told us when he was running for office was not not true,” he explained.
President Joe Biden said during his 2020 campaign and has insisted since then that he had no knowledge of or involvement in Hunter’s shady foreign trade deals – and that his position of power does not had not been abused to enrich her family.
“He said he never dealt with his son’s business and never even spoke to him. We have now discovered that he not only called the meetings. He went to dinner. And after dinner, Hunter Biden received a new Porsch – $3.5 million was transferred,” President McCarthy added.
“We discovered that because he was a serving vice president, the family had created 20 front companies.”
He said: “They received 16 of Romania’s 17 payments while he was vice-president. We have now found that the money will go to nine family members. He has to keep changing that.
McCarthy told Bartiromo that lawmakers wanted “to be able to respond to the American public” when it came to whether Biden was lying.
“There are still a lot of questions,” the Speaker of the House told Sunday Morning Futures. “And in order to get those questions answered, you would need an impeachment inquiry to empower Congress, Republicans and Democrats to get the answers the American people deserve to know.”
