What’s The Latest Hold Up To A House GOP Impeachment Inquiry Into Biden? McCarthy Explains.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says he won’t open an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden without a floor vote. “If we move forward,” it “would occur through a vote” on the House floor, the speaker explained to Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle.

McCarthy’s announcement confirms that moving forward with an impeachment inquiry will require 218 yes votes.

Appearing on Charlie Kirk’s podcast, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said that she believed the House Republican Conference has the votes to initiate formal proceedings against Biden.

Fox News has more:

“To open an impeachment inquiry is a serious matter, and House Republicans would not take it lightly or use it for political purposes. The American people deserve to be heard on this matter through their elected representatives,” McCarthy told Breitbart News in a statement. “That’s why, if we move forward with an impeachment inquiry, it would occur through a vote on the floor of the People’s House and not through a declaration by one person.”

McCarthy’s position is a departure from how his predecessor Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., handled the first impeachment inquiry against former President Donald Trump. In 2019, Pelosi unilaterally proclaimed that the House would advance an impeachment inquiry against Trump after the controversy over his infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“This week, the president has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically,” Pelosi said on Sept. 24, 2019. “Therefore, today, I’m announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. I’m directing our six committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella.

“The president must be held accountable,” she continued. “No one is above the law.”

A McCarthy spokesperson has not responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

  1. The republicans probably don’t want to impeach Jow now because we would have Kamala as president then. That would even be worse than Jow in mt estimation. Going from useless to totally useless.

  2. Nothing is going to happen,IS IT!!! You all are going to screw around and let this poor example of a leader get away with laughing his a-s off at the chicken s–ts in our government! He knows that most of you all are dirty!! The bad ones will not allow Joe to be impeached in fear that they also will be at the mercy of the panel next!! You are all paid way to much for what our country receives from you!
    The reason Biden is pushing so hard to take guns away is he knows a fight is coming soon in this country between the good and the bad entities . And those that have kept their weapons will be the winners. This will start a new government AGAIN.

  3. The GOP Great Oppressive Party to Conservatives.
