GOP’s impeachment effort against Biden may be doomed to fail, Republican Representative says probe finds no concrete crimes


Florida – The Biden family has been under the microscope of House Republicans for over a year, with intense scrutiny led by House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer and House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan. The pair have been investigating alleged connections between President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings abroad.

Despite these efforts, Representative Don Bacon, a Nebraska Republican, revealed on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that lawyers engaged by Congress have not identified any specific crimes committed by President Biden in connection with the ongoing impeachment probe.

During his appearance with Kristen Welker, Rep. Bacon emphasized the lack of criminal evidence against Biden. “When I talked to the lawyers on the committee staff, they say at this point there’s not a specific crime that’s been committed,” Bacon stated, suggesting a possible nearing end to the investigation. This admission raises questions about the continuation of the probe, which Bacon himself appears uncertain about. “I don’t know if it’s time right now, but I do think we’re probably nearing the conclusion of this investigation,” he noted.

The ongoing inquiry has delved into the financial intricacies of the Biden family, uncovering $24 million in foreign money and various hidden LLCs used for managing these funds. However, Bacon clarified, “that within itself is not a high crime or misdemeanor.” This distinction is crucial as it underscores the challenges in aligning financial irregularities with the constitutional grounds required for impeachment.

Theatrics and Political Stunts in Committee Hearings

The political drama surrounding the impeachment inquiry reached a theatrical peak in a recent committee hearing. Representative Jared Moskowitz, a Florida Democrat, dramatically challenged his Republican colleagues to proceed with impeachment if they believed they had sufficient evidence of wrongdoing. “Let’s just do the impeachment,” Moskowitz proposed, criticizing the ongoing expenditure and urging a resolution. His challenge was met with silence from Republicans, including Rep. Jim Jordan, who defended their methodical approach. “We don’t do snap impeachments like you guys. We actually do the facts. We do oversight according to the Constitution,” Jordan retorted.

Despite the provocations, Moskowitz asserted, “They’re never gonna impeach Joe Biden…It’s never gonna happen because they don’t have the evidence. This is a show. It’s all fake.”

Calls for Presidential Testimony and Reactions

The committee’s pursuits continued with a bold move by Chairman Comer, who invited President Biden to testify on April 16. This invitation was based on testimony from former associates of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, and Jason Galanis, who alleged the president’s involvement in his son’s business schemes. The White House has firmly denied these allegations, dismissing the invitation as a “sad stunt at the end of a dead impeachment.”

As the impeachment narrative unfolds, its implications extend beyond legal realms, influencing public perception and the political landscape. With President Biden gearing up for a reelection campaign against former President Donald Trump, the outcomes of this congressional drama could resonate deeply with voters.

The discourse surrounding the impeachment probe highlights a critical intersection of law, politics, and public accountability, as Congress navigates the delicate balance of oversight and partisan interests. As developments continue, the nation watches closely, awaiting definitive conclusions that may or may not reshape the political dynamics ahead of the crucial 2024 presidential election.
