According to a Fox News report, prominent GOP committee chairs will meet on Friday to discuss a House vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry into President Biden.
Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY); Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH); and Ways & Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) are expected to make their case to the House GOP Conference.
Formalizing the inquiry would make it harder for the Biden Administration to dismiss the investigation and would pressure witnesses to obey subpoenas.
From Fox News:
Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., whose district is anchored in Miami, told Fox News Digital, “There’s plenty of smoke coming out of the White House which justifies an impeachment inquiry.”
Rep. Don Bacon, R-Neb., whose district was narrowly won by Biden in 2020, is also supportive of opening a formal impeachment inquiry.
“Since the administration has started stonewalling in the last couple of weeks, we need the impeachment inquiry to compel them to provide information. Ultimately, this is what voters need to know come next November, and the inquiry will get information,” Bacon told Fox News Digital.
The vote would just affirm House GOP support for investigating Biden and would not in itself see the president impeached.
“This impeachment inquiry, led by the chairmen here today, James Comer, Jim Jordan and Jason Smith, continues to provide the American people the answers they both demand and deserve. They have found over $10 million from China, Russia, Ukraine and Romania funneled through a corrupt influence-peddling scheme to line the pockets of the Biden crime family,” GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said at the weekly GOP press conference on Wednesday.
