House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has asserted that the growing body of evidence surrounding corruption allegations against President Joe Biden and his family has approached warranting an impeachment inquiry to investigate potential wrongdoing.
During an interview on “Hannity” on Monday night, Mr. McCarthy discussed the whistleblower allegations involving substantial payments made to the Bidens by foreign entities. He accused the FBI of withholding crucial information from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), alleging that the agency deemed the informant’s claims credible.
“When President Biden was running for office, he told the American public that he’s never talked about business. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now prove is not true,” Mr. McCarthy said.
The House Speaker also referenced two IRS whistleblowers who allege that government prosecutors slow-walked an investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax crimes. He also noted that House GOP investigations had found records of millions of foreign funds having traveled through shell companies to Biden family members and associates.
“We would know none of this if Republicans had not taken the majority,” McCarthy emphasized. “But Hannity, this is rising to the level of impeachment inquiry, which provides Congress with the strongest power to obtain the knowledge and information needed for oversight.”
Mr. McCarthy accused Mr. Biden of weaponizing the federal government “to benefit his family” and obstruct Congressional oversight. He asserted that a full-fledged impeachment-level inquiry was likely necessary to address these serious allegations.
The FBI relied on an informant who claimed to possess evidence of bribery involving the Bidens. The informant claims to have allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hunter Biden, raising concerns about potential corruption at the highest levels of the United States government if the allegations prove to be true.
