President Joe Biden laughed off and mocked the threat of an impeachment inquiry during remarks on the economy in Maine on Friday.
Republicans continue to flip-flop on taking any action as evidence of the Biden family corruption becomes more obvious.
“Earlier this week, the Washington Post suggested Republicans may have to find something else to criticize me for now that inflation is coming down,” Biden said.
“I don’t know. I love that one,” he laughed.
The article Biden referred to was titled, “As inflation falls, GOP may have to rethink attacks on Biden economy.
He was also referring to the idea that there is sufficient evidence for an impeachment inquiry into Biden for bribery, given his shady foreign business deals, which have now been exposed.
As The Daily Fetched reported over the last month, Hunter Biden developed business interests in Ukraine, China, Kazakhstan, and Romania while having zero expertise or business skills other than access to his father.
During Biden’s 2020 campaign, the then-presidential candidate told Americans he never discussed his family’s business interests with them, and nobody in his family took money from China.
However, we now know this was a total lie due to recent revelations.
Bribery is one of two offenses mentioned explicitly in the Constitution as grounds for impeachment, along with treason.
While calls for an impeachment inquiry against Biden has been growing, some Republicans have begun to push back, which appears to be why the president is laughing off the “threat.”
On Friday, Senator Rand Paul faced backlash after he urged caution against impeaching Biden.
Paul hit out at Democrats for pushing a “terrible precedent” for impeaching President Donald Trump twice, urging Republicans to “do better” with a thorough investigation into the Biden corruption.
Does he mean a more thorough investigation or kicking the can down the road?
Meanwhile, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) began discussing impeachment more openly, mainly because the House’s subpoena powers are broader during an impeachment inquiry than in ordinary oversight, as Breitbart notes.
McCarthy has suggested he may bring an impeachment inquiry to the floor if the Biden administration refuses to provide documents that House committees have demanded.
