According to multiple reports, the House GOP’s first impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden will begin on September 28th, next week; a spokesman for the Oversight Committee released a statement.
“The hearing will focus on constitutional and legal questions surrounding the president’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” the spokesman on Tuesday. “The Committee also intends to subpoena Hunter Biden’s and James Biden’s personal and business bank records as early as this week.”
“The Oversight Committee will continue to follow the evidence and money trail to provide the transparency and accountability that Americans demand from their government.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) promised more details by end of day.
“We’ll be issuing the details hopefully by the end of the day or first thing in the morning,” Comer told Axios.
The House committees got the green light from Speaker McCarthy last week to proceed with the inquiry.
“I am directing our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. Over the past several months, House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct—a culture of corruption,” McCarthy said on X with the video of his announcement.
GOP Majority Whip Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) shared brief remarks on the inquiry on Tuesday.
“This impeachment inquiry is about one thing and one thing only, and that is about providing answers for the American people.”
