“These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. And they warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives. That’s why today, I am directing our House Committee to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.”

House Republicans, led by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, have officially kicked off an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

The allegations center on Biden’s son, Hunter, profiting from foreign business deals and claims that the Justice Department has been obstructing tax investigations into him.

Democrats, on the other hand, are calling foul. They say it’s a political sideshow meant to divert attention away from former President Trump’s legal woes.

David Weiss, who was appointed as special counsel by Attorney General Merrick Garland and is leading the Hunter Biden investigation, refutes any claims of interference.

Timing is key. With the 2024 presidential election inching closer, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Is this the opening gambit in a longer political battle or a serious call for accountability?
