Hunter To Hunt Biden In President’s Impeachment Inquiry
As Congress prepares to begin an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) revealed that the president’s son would be used as a witness against him.
McCarthy, who announced the launch of Biden’s impeachment inquiry last week, told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday” that Hunter Biden will get a subpoena during the inquiry.
During the interview, host Bartiromo asked if the speaker would subpoena the first son. The host noted that despite the lack of evidence, Donald Trump Jr. spent a combined 20 hours before various congressional committees giving testimonies during the Russia collusion investigation.
@SpeakerMcCarthy Remember folks, every member of the TRUMP FAMILY was subpoenaed, so don't get upset when the IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY gives Congress the power to Subpoena any member of the BIDEN FAMILY. FTD, and I am not talking about the florist!

“How come you haven’t brought in Hunter Biden,” Bartiromo asked.

“I don’t subpoena anybody,” McCarthy responded. “I let committees do their work. The one thing the American public has to understand is there’s a strategy behind everything. We only follow facts. Hunter Biden will get subpoenaed.”
McCarthy, however, noted that Hunter’s subpoena will only come at the appropriate time.
“When’s the appropriate time? Do you do it because television wants it, or do you do it around the facts and the timing?” McCarthy continued. “I think we should have the bank statements to actually know where did the money go? So you would know the questions to ask Hunter Biden. Just to subpoena Hunter Biden because you want to fundraise or you want to do something that’s not how to run an investigation.”

The speaker argued that the smart thing to do would be for House investigators to gather all the evidence against the president. McCarthy also added that he wants Congress to get the 5,400 emails Biden sent using pseudonyms because those emails will help lawmakers determine the questions to ask Hunter.
The speaker also made remarks suggesting that other Biden family members would get subpoenas as the impeachment inquiry progresses.
It looks to me that nine Biden family members got money,” McCarthy said when asked if other members of the president’s family will get subpoenas. “ I want to see bank statements. I think they would have to come before us to answer the questions.
