Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said the House could open an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden as soon as September when the House returns from recess if the administration continues to deny House committees subpoenaed records, documents, and interviews.
In an interview with Fox Business’s Larry Kudlow on Tuesday, McCarthy said, “If the Biden administration continues to fight to withhold information” that could add clarity to the questions the House committees investigating the Biden family have, then they will move forward with an impeachment inquiry.
“The whole determination here is how the Bidens handle this,” McCarthy said during the interview. “If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for an impeachment inquiry. But if they withhold the documents and fight like they have now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know, we will move forward with impeachment inquiry when we come back into session.”
The House is scheduled to come back into session on Sep. 12.
McCarthy referenced the findings unearthed by the House Oversight Committee about how Biden would be on speaker phone during some of his son’s business meetings, how he met with foreign oligarchs who had paid Hunter Biden on two separate occasions at Cafe Milano in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., and how members of his family were paid by Chinese companies.
“Why can’t we get the documents to prove that you’re not being bribed, that you didn’t get foreign money directly in, that you didn’t talk to your son?” McCarthy said. “But what we found now is that the things that then Vice President Biden running for president told the American public is not true, and he’s now had to change what he said.”
The Department of Justice has cited extensively that they cannot provide documents, testimony, or information relating to Hunter Biden’s criminal case because it is an ongoing investigation. Most of what the committees’ investigation has turned out has come from whistleblowers or subpoenas of bank records.
