In a recent interview, former President Trump reportedly made the claim that House Republicans might not have started an impeachment investigation into Vice President Biden if Democrats had not attempted to remove him from office.
“I think had they not done it to me … perhaps you wouldn’t have it being done to them. And this is going to happen with indictments, too,” Trump said.
This week, House committees were instructed by Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to launch a formal impeachment investigation on Biden.
McCarthy maintained for weeks that he thought the House investigations would eventually turn into an impeachment inquiry before he formally endorsed impeachment.
He has come under increasing pressure to launch an investigation from conservative House members.
The House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s months-long investigation of the commercial practices of the Biden family has not revealed any evidence that the president directly profited financially from them or that he changed his policies as a result.
Trump informed Kelly that the decision to pursue impeachment against Biden ultimately rests with House members, but the former president has not held back in expressing his opinions.
Republicans ought to impeach Biden, the former president argued in a post on Truth Social from the latter part of August.
Trump was impeached twice during his four years in office, making him the leading candidate for the GOP presidential candidacy in 2024.
