Joe Biden’s impeachment seems more likely

It is “very likely” that President Biden has committed impeachable offenses, according to President Mike Johnson, who was elected to the post on Wednesday after three weeks of Republican unrest.

In September, then-President Kevin McCarthy launched a formal impeachment investigation against Biden. At issue was whether the president had ever been influenced by his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings, potentially paving the way for an impeachment trial. McCarthy said the president faces “allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption,” warranting further investigation.

Biden has consistently denied any wrongdoing, and White House spokesman Ian Sams said: “House Republicans have been investigating the president for nine months and have found no evidence of wrongdoing. “Reprehensible. His own GOP members have said so.”

Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity in his first broadcast interview since becoming president, Johnson said the evidence suggested impeachable offenses had been committed, but he added that he would follow due process.

Johnson said: “The reason we’ve moved to the impeachment inquiry against the president himself is because if, in fact, all the evidence leads where we think it will lead, these are most likely impeachable offenses.

“It’s listed as grounds for impeachment in the Constitution; bribery and other crimes and misdemeanors. Corruption is listed there, and it looks a lot like it. We’re going to follow the truth wherever it leads us. We let’s follow due process because, again, we are the party of the rule of law,” he said.

“I know people are getting anxious and agitated and just want someone impeached, but we don’t do that like the other team. We have to base it on evidence,” Johnson added.

News week contacted the White House press office for comment via email.

Matt Gaetz, the Republican representative from Florida who introduced the resignation motion that allowed McCarthy to become the first speaker in U.S. history to be removed from office, had described the impeachment inquiry as a ” theater of failure.

Speaking to Politico, he said: “I don’t believe the impeachment effort led by Kevin McCarthy was as much about convicting Joe Biden as it was about saving Kevin McCarthy.”

However, Gaetz added that he has greater confidence in the impeachment process led by Johnson. He said the new president would “approach this issue like a lawyer” rather than “a desperate person trying to cling to power.”

Joe Biden holds a press conference in the Rose Garden of the White House on October 25, 2023 in Washington, DC. It is “very likely” that the president committed impeachable offenses, according to Speaker Mike Johnson, who took office this week.

On October 20, Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer shared an image of a $200,000 check sent to Joe Biden from his brother James Biden in 2018.

Comer said James Biden received “shady” loans totaling $600,000 from a hospital company. They were based on the claim that his surname could help secure “significant investment from the Middle East”.

However, on X, formerly Twitter, Sams posted that the money was clearly marked as a loan repayment.

The White House Oversight and Investigations spokesperson wrote: “Jamie Comer is pretty desperate to try to distract from the mess of Republican speakers.

“This is a loan payment from when President Biden lent his brother money. When he was out of office in 2018, no less. It’s right there on the check !” » added Sam.
