US House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced this month an impeachment inquiry against US President Joe Biden. The House investigations into the Biden family have uncovered a “culture of corruption” that demands deeper review, according to McCarthy.

McCarthy has instructed the House Judiciary, Oversight and Ways and Means committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into Biden, citing evidence the House has gathered in its investigations into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and whether the president used his influence to financially benefit his son.

While the House of Representatives wields the power to impeach a federal official for wrongdoing, such as the President of the United States, Cabinet officials and Judges, only the Senate can convict and remove an individual from office.

To date, no president has been forced from the White House through impeachment.

The Bidens have been accused of influence-peddling and preferential treatment for Biden’s son Hunter.

Foreign bribery has also been alleged with regard to Ukraine and China.

According to McCarthy, the impeachment inquiry would give House Republicans “the full power to gather all the facts and answers for the American public.”
