McCarthy says Biden family allegations are 'rising to the level of impeachment inquiry'

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Monday said that allegations stemming from Republican probes into the business dealings of family members of President Joe Biden are “rising to the level of impeachment inquiry.”

The allegations include that Biden family members received payments from foreign companies and that the Justice Department, according to IRS whistleblowers, has treated the Biden family “differently” in an investigation into Hunter Biden, McCarthy noted in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.

“When Biden was running for office, he told the public he has never talked about business. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now prove is not true,” McCarthy alleged.

“If you’re sitting in our position today, we would know none of this if Republicans had not taken the majority,” he continued. “We only followed where the information has taken us. But this is rising to the level of impeachment inquiry, which provides Congress the strongest power to get the rest of the knowledge and information needed.”

The White House and Democrats swiftly criticized McCarthy’s comments. Spokesperson Ian Sams tweeted that the GOP’s “eagerness to go after” Biden “regardless of the truth is seemingly bottomless.”

In early May, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said a whistleblower had informed them that the FBI had a document known as an FD-1023 that included an unverified allegation from a human source who said Joe Biden, when he was vice president, was involved in a bribery scheme involving a foreign government. Grassley released a redacted version of the FBI informant document last week.
