House Republicans are gearing up to vote on initiating an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. This step marks a significant juncture in their ongoing investigations amid growing pressure from conservative MAGA factions.

The focus of the inquiry, largely centered around President Biden and his son Hunter Biden, has yet to yield concrete evidence implicating the president, which has led to a split within the Republican Party, with some members hesitant about the inquiry’s legitimacy and potential implications.

House Speaker Mike Johnson is confident he can secure enough votes for the resolution, which comes as a direct response to the White House’s dismissal of GOP subpoenas as invalid without formal House authorization.

The vote aims to solidify the investigation’s legal footing. However, many believe it will not lead to a more intensified inquiry and is merely a political maneuver ahead of the next election cycle.
