Speaker McCarthy, House Republicans Move Toward Biden Impeachment – with Sept. 5th Due Date

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — The state of the economy, out-of-control inflation and skyrocketing gas prices have all contributed to President Joe Biden being as deeply unpopular as any president in recent history. Given all that, a 2024 re-election bid was always going to be an uphill battle for Mr. Biden — and that’s before a slew of attempts to impeach the president.

But none of those threats of impeachment carry the same weight as the one from Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy – and he’s starting to turn the heat up on those threats.

Earlier this week Mr. McCarthy shared some of his most recent and direct thoughts – and possible timelines – into what a prospective impeachment proceeding against Biden would look like while appearing on Fox Business News Channel with Larry Kudlow.

Asked Kudlow: “So I take it, if I understand you, you as Speaker have not yet made up your mind whether to actually launch an impeachment inquiry against President Biden.”

“Well, listen,” McCarthy began. “The thing that holds up whether to do an impeachment inquiry or not is: Provide us the documents we’re asking for. The whole determination here is how the Bidens handle this.

“If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for an impeachment inquiry.

"But if they withhold the documents – and fight like they have up until now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know – we will move forward with impeachment inquiry when we come back into session.”

Congress is currently off on "August Recess" for the entire month, so “when we come back into session” would be Tuesday, Sept. 5th.

While McCarthy appears to be deliberating on how to best to approach the unenviable task of impeaching a sitting president, the same cannot be said of some of his GOP colleagues.

Earlier this month, Republican Rep. Greg Steube of Florida leap-frogged his colleagues to eschew protocol and filed four articles of impeachment against Biden.

While that may be a more direct example of impeachment efforts against the incumbent president, it’s hardly the only example.

  • Congresswomen Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert have both expressed that Biden should be impeached,
  • as has Montana Rep. Matt Rosendale,
  • and Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Ralph Norman have also jumped on this sentiment.
The documents McCarthy and his House Republican colleagues have requested are related to the now documented illegal business dealings involving Hunter Biden – and which purportedly enriched the president, as well.

While all of those aforementioned lawmakers obviously wield some power, none are the Speaker of the House. But based on Speaker McCarthy's interview with Larry Kudlow, he's moving ever closer – both literally and temporally – to that September 5th due date.
