Impeachment Inquiry Looms for Biden: McCarthy Signals Escalation Amid Bribery Allegations

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hinted that the Republican-led House is inching closer to initiating an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden.

The allegations center around claims that Biden accepted millions in bribes from foreign nations. The impetus for these remarks was the release of an FBI-generated FD-1023 form by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), which contained information from a confidential source stating that Burisma co-founder and CEO Mykola Zlochevsky was forced by then-Vice President Biden and his son to pay millions in bribes in return for their assistance in getting a prosecutor investigating Burisma fired.

McCarthy’s interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity revealed that the FBI had withheld this information from the IRS. McCarthy also mentioned that 16 out of 17 payments from Romania were made to Biden’s shell companies while he was vice president. He further claimed that the alleged bribes to the Biden family came from countries like Ukraine, Russia, Romania, and China, which are known for their public corruption issues.

McCarthy stated that these allegations are escalating to the level of an impeachment inquiry, which would grant Congress the power to obtain the remaining necessary information. He expressed his belief that this matter would be pursued to the end, leading to an impeachment inquiry as outlined by the Constitution. This news comes as Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s former best friend and a director at Burisma, is expected to testify before the House Oversight Committee about the numerous times he witnessed Joe Biden meeting with Hunter Biden’s overseas business partners or investors while he was vice president.
