The impeachment walls appear to be closing in on President Joe Biden as Speaker of the House and California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy has hinted that an inquiry is in the president’s future.

The Speaker was interviewed on Monday night on Fox News by host Sean Hannity when he gave his hint that impeachment was the end game for President Biden.

The Speaker spoke to Hannity about alleged shell companies used by the Biden family to accept payment from Romanian and Chinese entities, but there has been no evidence shown so far that shows Joe Biden received any of that money.

“The FBI kept this from the IRS,” the Speaker said. “So, not only do they claim that they were bribed, we now find information that 16 out of 17 payments from Romania were provided to the Biden shell companies while he was vice president. When President Biden was running for office, he told the American public that he’s never talked about business. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now proved is not true.”

He said that there were “credible whistleblowers” in the IRS who have said that the Biden family got special treatment.

“If you’re sitting in our position today, we would know none of this if Republicans had not taken the majority,” he said. “We’ve 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.”

“I believe we will follow this all the way to the end, and this is gonna rise to an impeachment inquiry the way the Constitution tells us to do this,” he said.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has called for President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland to be impeached by the GOP-led House. The fiery Georgia Republican said that Garland should be impeached along with Matthew Graves, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

She knocked the AG in a recent tweet over his “refusal to prosecute Joe and Hunter Biden while persecuting President Trump and many conservatives is grounds for impeachment,” adding, “It’s absolutely unacceptable to allow these criminals to maintain power.”

In another post, she noted that she moved to impeach Biden not long after he took office.

“I filed Articles of Impeachment on Joe Biden’s first full day in office,” she wrote. “We already knew many of the crimes he committed then, but now we know so much more in just 6 months of a Republican-led House thanks to the important investigative work being done on @GOPOversight.”

However, House GOP leadership does not appear interested in making the move.

“House Republicans have introduced multiple impeachment resolutions against President Joe Biden, focused largely on what they call lax enforcement of the U.S. border with Mexico. Other House impeachment efforts target Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on the border issue and over investigations, or lack thereof, regarding bad boy presidential son Hunter Biden,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“But just because a batch of high-profile House Republicans are pushing to oust Biden and members of his team from office doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. House Republican leaders have many considerations on the impeachment front. Starting, of course, with whether evidence exists to warrant a removal attempt. Then there’s the potential political blowback should the narrow House majority move ahead, considering impeachment efforts are virtually guaranteed to fail in the Senate, where there’s nowhere near a two-thirds majority willing to convict,” the outlet added.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and other members of the House leadership team have been noncommittal about impeachment proceedings.
