Biden’s Impeachment Inquiry Formalized By House

President Joe Biden’s woes continue to mount as the president is dealt a blow that could ultimately end his presidency.

The House voted 221-212 on Wednesday to formalize the impeachment inquiry into the president with House members. The resolution has now formally established that there are sufficient grounds to move forward with the impeachment inquiry.

There were initial worries that the resolution might fail as there were fears that the GOP’s narrow majority might be a problem. Some House Republicans, including Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), have expressed doubts on the impeachment inquiry. However, the entire House Republicans rallied behind the bill.

The vote came just moments after Hunter Biden defied a Congressional subpoena to testify behind closed doors. The first son showed up at the Capitol on Wednesday morning but held a conference instead. Hunter told reporters that he would only testify at a public hearing.

“I’m here today to answer at a public hearing any legitimate questions Chairman Comer and the House Oversight Committee may have for me,” Hunter Biden told reporters behind the Capitol Building. “I’m here today to make sure that the House committee’s illegitimate investigations of my family did not proceed on distortions, manipulated evidence, and lies.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) responded to Hunter’s defiance, noting they will begin a contempt of Congress hearing against the first son.

Jordan, in a Fox News appearance, revealed the two questions he would have asked Hunter if the first son had shown up for his deposition.

“We would’ve loved to have Hunter Biden under oath in a deposition the way these investigations are supposed to work. And the first question we would’ve asked him is ‘Who’s the big guy? Who’s the big guy, Mr. Biden?’ The confidential human source said it’s Joe Biden in the 1023 form. Your partner said it’s Joe Biden,” Jordan stated. “And then, ‘What was on that call that you made from Dubai at the request of Burisma to get help from D.C. when you called your father? What did you ask him to do? Because we know what he went and did. What did you ask him to do on that phone call?’”
