Reports are emerging that House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is looking to launch an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden as early as September.
According to Breitbart News, McCarthy has initiated strategies to open a sweeping impeachment inquiry into Biden to uncover the depth of the president’s involvement in his family’s foreign dealings.

McCarthy has been very vocal about his desire to see Congress launch an impeachment inquiry into the president. The House speaker told Fox News last Tuesday that Congress could open an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden if the president’s administration continues to obstruct 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 said. “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.”

McCarthy revealed that Democrats are “very concerned” about the impeachment prospect of President Biden. During an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” McCarthy said Democrats have told him of their concerns regarding Biden’s potential impeachment.
“I have had Democrats now tell me they’re very concerned because they back this president based upon what he told America,” McCarthy said. “And with each turn, we find that is not true.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), one of the many vocal supporters of Biden’s impeachment, maintains that the president must be impeached.
“We have to impeach him in the House to show and prove to our voters that we’re willing to do these things, are willing to bring accountability. If we don’t do it, then why do they want to vote for us?” Greene said.
While many Republicans support an impeachment inquiry, some GOP members are still opposed to the idea. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CA), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, has argued that an impeachment inquiry would be “impeachment theater.”
