Republicans are exposing just how corrupt Joe Biden is.
New House Speaker Mike Johnson just said the impeachment inquiry is now moving to the stage where witnesses should be placed under oath.
House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said the impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden has advanced to a stage in which witnesses should be placed under oath.
The speaker released a statement on Wednesday that said he had just received an update from Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who is leading the endeavor, and the two others tasked with assisting him: Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO).
“At this stage, our impeachment inquiry has already shown the corrupt conduct of the president’s family and that he and White House officials have repeatedly lied about his knowledge and involvement in his family’s business activities,” Johnson said.
“It has also exposed the tens of millions of dollars from foreign adversaries being paid to shell companies controlled by the president’s son, brother and their business associates,” he added. “Now, the appropriate step is to place key witnesses under oath and question them under the penalty of perjury, to fill gaps in the record.”
Johnson concluded, “I commend the good work of Chairmen Comer, Jordan, and Smith. As we move forward toward an inflection point in this critical investigation, they have my full and unwavering support.”
Johnson recently said that Republicans will not rush the impeachment of Joe Biden.
House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., told Newsmax on Monday although the evidence stacks up against Mayorkas and Biden, Republicans will not rush the impeachment process like Democrats did the two times they impeached former President Donald Trump.
“Next to a declaration of war, impeachment is arguably one of the heaviest powers that the House has,” Johnson told “The Record With Greta Van Susteren.” “We have to do it in the right manner. But the evidence that’s built up against Mayorkas is so complete. “I think he’s probably one of the worst cabinet secretaries on the evidence, objectively speaking, in the history of the country. He’s opened the border intentional policy decisions and all the terrible societal ills that come from that.
“… I understand the angst of our members, I share it myself, and the American people really want something done on that border, and this is an important gesture.”
