(TargetLiberty.org) – On Saturday Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) argued that Congress “has a duty” to hold a vote on the impeachment inquiry against President Biden.
In an interview on Fox & Friends Weekend Johnson argued that there was clear evidence that they could not turn away from it. He added that according to the Constitution, it was the duty of the House of Representatives to follow the evidence. He added that this was not a process that they could stop.
The House GOP has claimed that the Biden family, including President Biden, had been part of suspicious foreign business dealings. However, the evidence that the House Oversight Committee has presented as part of the investigation so far has directly implicated President Joe Biden. Despite this, House Republicans, including Johnson, have been trying to push for an impeachment inquiry.
The investigation so far has been slammed by many Democrats who have claimed that this is part of a political effort to hurt the reelection chances of President Biden ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
Still, Johnson has often expressed support for the investigation, arguing that it has already provided evidence of the President’s corrupt conduct. He added that Biden and other White House officials have continuously lied about whether or not the President is involved in the foreign business activities of his family.
He added that the steps that need to be taken now, is to have key witnesses testify under oath. President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden has already agreed to testify before the committee.
