Elected officials from the House of Representatives are providing their thoughts after the lower chamber brought a formal impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden (D).

The impeachment was brought on the grounds that President Biden had used his office as Vice President in the Obama administration to gain wealth through shady LLCs and foreign influence.

The vote was on party lines, 221-212.

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called the evidence “damning.”

“Today I voted to advance an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden. The evidence developed against the Biden Crime Family is damning. They took bribes from corrupt foreigners for the financial benefit of themselves and their family. They created a vast web of shell companies to wash the money. They lied about it and pressured federal law enforcement to protect them from their crimes. An impeachment inquiry is warranted, though insufficient to deal with the harm they have caused,” said Rep. Gaetz.

Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ) spoke on the notion from Democrats that Republicans “have no evidence.”

“We have literally tens of thousands of pages of bank records. And [Hunter Biden] says we cherry-pick those. No, you don’t cherry-pick the bank record. What you do is you actually follow the numbers and the dates of transfers from where to where. They have set up more than 20 shell companies all during Joe Biden’s tenure as the Vice President. You have SARs – literally almost 200 Suspicious Activity Reports from banks,” said Rep. Biggs.

The Arizona congressman continued, “You have actually one bank where you have an auditor saying we’ve got a problem here because this $5 million deposit is not based on anything that they’re selling. There’s no loan documentation. It is really scary because it’s all coming from this – basically a CCP-controlled company. You have all that evidence, and then you have Joe Biden meeting with these people, making phone calls to these people, it all wraps up together.”

However, Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) holds the view that the only thing the House inquiry has shown is that “a president loves his son.”

“The idea that they are going to somehow get to President Biden through his son who was drug addicted and the only thing that they have revealed in these hearings is that we have a president that loves his son even through his imperfections,” said Rep. Crockett.

Representative Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) added that if House Republicans were so worried about impeaching President Biden, then they wouldn’t take a three-week recess right before the vote.

“MAGA Republicans want you to know that this Biden impeachment inquiry is SO important that they’re about to vote and then leave DC for 3 weeks. They are gonna vote and run away, out of town. The only evidence they’ve uncovered is that Joe Biden is the father of Hunter Biden,” said Rep. Moskowitz.

This is a developing story.
