Today, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Speaker of the House, opened an impeachment inquiry into President Joseph R. Biden. This came after a week or two of delay and speculation. Much of that speculation centered on whether McCarthy, on orders from his donors, was sabotaging the investigation of Biden. Even today, he did not quiet the speculation, or the high skepticism of his motives.
McCarthy finally moves
The announcement of the impeachment inquiry came this morning, at about 9:39 a.m., according to Just the News.
Speaker McCarthy announced the inquiry in a YouTube video on his channel.
This actually means he has called for the House to vote to begin such an inquiry. Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) had said Saturday he expected such an inquiry to begin “within the next couple of weeks.” This same Rep. Steube has already introduced four Articles of Impeachment of his own. This was the third set of articles anyone had introduced. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) had each introduced their own set.
Observers expect Chairmen Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) of Judiciary and James Comer (R-Ky.) of Houses Oversight to present evidence Thursday to the House Republican Conference.
Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) used obscene language to object to any such impeachment inquiry or process. But he also warned Biden to bring his message about the putative success of his economic policies to Pennsylvania cities other than Philadelphia.
Rep. Comer had expressed confidence back in August that an impeachment inquiry was “imminent.”
But Laura Loomer insisted that McCarthy only acted on impeachment to forestall a “motion to vacate.”
In fact, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) had openly threatened precisely that.
Legacy media commentators pushed a narrative that an impeachment inquiry would only help, not hurt, Biden.
