In a recent interview with Fox Business, Speaker Kevin McCarthy hinted at the looming possibility of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. McCarthy made it clear that the decision would ultimately rest on whether or not the Biden administration complies with requests for documents related to the ongoing investigation into the Biden family’s alleged corruption. If the administration continues to withhold information, McCarthy stated that he and other House Republicans would move forward with an impeachment inquiry when Congress resumes in September.
McCarthy’s interview focused largely on the changing narrative surrounding the Biden family’s involvement in questionable business dealings. He pointed out that Biden’s previous claims of never discussing his son Hunter’s business affairs or receiving money from China have been proven false. McCarthy also highlighted concerns about U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was recently granted special counsel status. House Republicans had raised questions about Weiss’s authority back in February, suggesting that there may be inconsistencies in the investigation.

The speaker emphasized the need for transparency and requested access to bank statements and credit card statements to determine whether the Bidens took money from outside sources. McCarthy expressed frustration with the administration’s resistance to providing the necessary documents and suggested that an impeachment inquiry would give Congress the power to obtain the information needed.
However, McCarthy also acknowledged that if the Biden administration complies with the document requests, there may not be a need for an impeachment inquiry. This caveat raises questions about whether the speaker has backed himself into a corner, potentially disappointing fellow Republican House members who have been calling for at least an inquiry into the Biden family’s actions. As Congress returns from recess in September, all eyes will be on McCarthy to see if he follows through with his plans for an impeachment inquiry.
