The White House appears to be nervous about the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.
One Biden official is calling it “extreme” and unwarranted.
“House Republicans have been investigating the President for 9 months, and they’ve turned up no evidence of wrongdoing,” White House spokesman Ian Sams said. “His own GOP members have said so.”
Sams says the impeachment is “extreme politics at its worst.”
“He vowed to hold a vote to open impeachment, now he flip-flopped because he doesn’t have support,” Sams said, in reference to House Speaker Rep. Andrew McCarthy.
McCarthy said House investigators found evidence that Joe Biden lied about his involvement in the family business.
Bank records show many payments were directed to Biden family members through shell companies.
“Taken together, these allegations paint a picture of a culture of corruption,” he said. “
These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption. They warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives.”
“That’s why today, I am directing our house committee to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden,” McCathy continued. “This logical next step will give our committees the full power to gather all the facts and answers for the American public. It’s exactly what we want to know: the answers.”
“I believe the President would want to answer these questions and allegations as well,” McCarthy added. “I would encourage the President and his team to fully cooperate with this investigation in the interests of transparency.”
