Gaetz Insists Biden Must Be Impeached

( – During an interview on Newsmax with Chris Salcedo, Representative Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., offered a glimmer of hope to those who are beyond ready for Republicans to open an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

Gaetz, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, said that he was “heartened by the full-throated support” he witnessed during a phone call with members of the committee. He went on to divulge that “some of the more moderate members” agreed that an impeachment inquiry needed to be opened so that lawmakers could have the powers that come along with it. Up until now, many moderate Republicans have made excuses when asked if they would vote to move forward with impeaching the president.

Throughout much of the House Oversight Committee’s investigation, Chair James Comer, R-Ky., has been stonewalled by various government agencies when seeking materials. The Treasury Department and the FBI have prevented some documents from being handed over, only allowing lawmakers to view them briefly. The FBI attempted to hide certain portions of an unclassified FD-1023 document by redacting full sentences that were not previously redacted when given to lawmakers in the Senate. Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, revealed on the Senate floor that key information about alleged bribery phone calls between President Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and a Ukrainian foreign national was part of what the FBI chose to hide from the Oversight Committee. Grassley went on to release the full unredacted document to the public.

Gaetz told Salcedo that after everything that has been discovered during the committee’s investigation, Republican lawmakers would no longer be taken seriously if they did not move forward with the impeachment inquiry. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow that Republicans may move forward with an impeachment inquiry when they come back to Washington D.C. in September. He said that if there was more cooperation with lawmakers on getting them the documents they have requested, there would not be a need to open an impeachment inquiry. However, given the stalling that has taken place over the last 8 months, many lawmakers believe it is highly unlikely that anything will be voluntarily handed over.
