McCarthy directs House committees to open Biden impeachment inquiry

  • U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has called for a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, citing allegations of "abuse of power, obstruction and corruption" surrounding the Biden family's business dealings. Republicans have been investigating Hunter Biden's business dealings prior to Biden taking office. The impeachment push is seen as politically motivated by Democrats, and the White House has dismissed it as such. McCarthy's move further divides lawmakers who are already struggling to pass legislation and avoid a government shutdown.
  • McCarthy is facing pressure from his right flank to take action against Biden while also trying to pass legislation and prevent a government shutdown. He is planning closed-door meetings to discuss the impeachment inquiry, but there is no clear end game to the situation. Biden's White House has criticized the impeachment push as politically motivated and argues that the consequences for the American people are too serious.
  • The impeachment push by Republicans comes as Trump, who was twice impeached but acquitted, faces more serious charges in court. While House Republicans have been probing Hunter Biden's business dealings, they have not produced concrete evidence linking him and President Biden. The Oversight Committee chairman is seeking banking records for Hunter Biden to understand the flow of money. There are also concerns about government funding running out at the end of the month, with conservatives pushing for spending cuts.
