“An impeachment inquiry is a serious undertaking and there are serious reasons why we are doing this. It’s clear that President Biden, his son, and everyone in his campaign and administration know that as well, or they wouldn’t have tried to divert attention with false claims that Hunter Biden’s laptop was a Russian plant,” said Representative Hageman. “The questions before us are serious, and they surround allegations that Joe Biden participated in an organized effort to enrich his family, and potentially himself, by selling access to him to foreign businessmen. “
Representative Hageman continued, “The laptop has always contained evidence that President Biden knew of his family’s influence peddling schemes, approved of them, and likely personally profited from them. With this inquiry, we can gather all the facts and have a clear picture of the Biden family corruption operation, with Joe Biden as the product they were selling. I commend Speaker McCarthy for his leadership on this important issue, and for his decision to move forward with the inquiry. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I look forward to being heavily involved throughout the entire process.”
During McCarthy’s speech, he made it clear that there will be a vote for an impeachment inquiry. “I do not make this decision lightly,” the Speaker said. “Regardless of your party, or who you voted for, these facts concern all Americans.”
The House will return from recess on Tuesday will a deadline of September 30 to pass a spending measure to keep the government open.
