James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has said that he wants Congress to impeach President Biden and has hinted that subpoenas may be issued to the first family to investigate their worldwide financial dealings.
This investigation aims to learn more about any possible influence peddling by Joe Biden during his time as vice president, Comer said.
When asked about Biden’s impeachment, Comer said he thinks he should be, but that will be left up to the speaker.
Three of the four presidential impeachments in US history have taken place in the previous quarter century, with both of the most recent impeachments involving former President Trump.
Speaker-elect Mike Johnson (R-La.) has not publicly called for Biden’s impeachment but has hinted that a decision will be made “very soon.”
Comer suggested that this week would be a significant one since subpoenas will soon be issued. The subcommittee has not yet issued subpoenas for Hunter Biden or the first family testimony.
Following the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives earlier this year, Comer has assumed the role of chairman of the House Oversight Committee, which has been investigating the Biden family’s activities.
Comer reiterated the findings of congressional probes into the Bidens, saying they have enough bank accounts to track the money, accusing the Bidens of laundering money.
He said the Biden family ran a highly sophisticated criminal operation. This wasn’t just another case of a drug user making dangerous concoctions and making impulsive deals. This was carefully structured. The Biden family ran a highly sophisticated criminal operation.
Hunter Biden, the first son dogged by scandal, vented his frustrations over the constant media attention in an opinion piece. He said Republicans were using his past drug abuse as political fodder.
He said misinformation about his father had been circulated using Hunter’s past difficulties. He said there have been continual attempts to damage his character through congressional investigations, and, more recently, he’s faced criminal accusations for owning an unloaded gun for 11 days five years ago.
The current president is trailing the leading Republican candidate, Trump, in five of the six pivotal swing states, according to a New York Times and Siena College poll.
