McCarthy: House Could Launch Impeachment Inquiry When Session Resumes
President Joe Biden could find himself in hot water when Congress returns in September, with the GOP-led House set to launch an inquiry into the president when sessions resume.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) warned that the House could launch an impeachment inquiry as soon as September if the Biden administration doesn’t turn over documents — including some that were apparently never requested by the GOP. https://t.co/O9rOFjJsqH

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) made the revelation Tuesday on Fox Business Network’s “Kudlow,” noting that the House could launch an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden if the president’s administration continues to obstruct the Congressional investigation into the Bidens.
“If the Biden administration continues to fight to withhold information that could really clear all this up. Did they take bribes? Did they deal in the business? If they hold that up, we would have to move to an impeachment inquiry, which you know, Larry, gives the apex of power to Congress when it comes to our subpoena power and others to get the documents we need,” McCarthy told Host Larry Kudlow. “The bank statements, the credit card statements and others. Show us where the money went. Show us where you’ve taken money from outside sources and that would clear most of this up, but they seem to fight it every step of the way.”
Kevin McCarthy says Republicans need “the bank statements, the credit card statements” that would show whether Joe Biden took a bribe.

McCarthy said that the House would launch an inquiry if the Biden administration used Special Counsel David Weiss’ investigation as an excuse not to provide Congress with the required information.
All the evidence exposing DOJ obstruction in support of the Bidens has come from OUR investigation.
We'll continue our investigation & I fully expect us to start an impeachment inquiry.
It's clear that Joe has facilitated & allowed these foreign shakedowns & influence peddling. pic.twitter.com/uIOOZwhrNR

“The thing that holds up whether we do impeachment inquiry, provide us the documents we’re asking,” McCarthy added. “The whole determination here is how the Bidens handled this. If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for impeachment inquiry. But if they withhold the documents and fight like they have now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know, we will move forward with impeachment inquiry when we come back into session.”
The California lawmaker added that Weiss’ appointment as special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden would not deter the Congressional investigation into President Biden and his family.
