(LibertySociety.com) – While some House Republicans have remained silent on an impeachment inquiry into President Biden, others are frustrated that it has taken so long to even consider the move. During a Newsmax interview, Representative Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., believes that Republicans need to prioritize impeachment when Congress reconvenes in September. She listed several findings from the House Oversight Committee’s investigation that she said warrant an inquiry, adding that the testimony from Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer indicated that Joe Biden “is a compromised president who must be impeached.”
Back in June, Boebert brought forward a privileged resolution to force a vote on impeachment. After Republican infighting, Boebert altered the resolution to refer impeachment articles to the appropriate committees instead. At the time, she said that the committees should take no longer than a couple of months to make an impeachment recommendation. However, Boebert said that she would attempt to force an impeachment vote again if she felt that members of the committees were purposely dragging their feet. Speaker McCarthy has said on several occasions that he would move forward with an impeachment inquiry if the evidence supported one, but wanted to follow the appropriate process instead of skipping committee investigations.
Other House Republicans have filed articles of impeachment against President Biden, including Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA., Andy Ogles, Tenn., and most recently Greg Steube, R-Fla. Steube filed his articles on August 11, for President Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings. On the same day, Steube also introduced legislation that would force the Secret Service to put out a report about the cocaine found in the White House. He named the legislation the “Helping Understand Narcotics Traces at the Executive Residence (HUNTER) Act. The scandal surrounding Hunter Biden and other Biden family members is unlikely to go away any time soon, with Hunter Biden’s plea deal falling apart in July. Republicans have cried foul at the naming of U.S. Attorney David Weiss as Special Counsel, with several claiming that the appointment is a way to obstruct their investigations.
