Early next year, House Republicans will decide whether or not to attempt impeachment of President Biden, the head of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, predicted on Sunday.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), chairman of the panel and Republican, stated that the Republican impeachment investigation is still in its final stages, despite the fact that many of his allies have already reached the conclusion that there is sufficient evidence to impeach.
The investigation, led by the chairman of the Oversight Committee, James Comer (R-La.), issued approximately a dozen subpoenas and transcribed requests for interviews last week.
“I believe we will get the depositions and the interviews done in this calendar year and then make a decision early next year whether the actual evidence warrants going to articles of impeachment and moving to that stage of the investigation,” Jordan said.
The investigation notably obtained testimony from the president’s brother James Biden, first son Hunter Biden, who was embroiled in the scandal, business associates, and key actors in the family’s dealings.
Comer, prior to taking the action, had stated unequivocally on “Sunday Morning Futures” the previous week that Joe Biden ought to be impeached, without providing a time frame.
Jordan refrained from explicitly forecasting an impeachment.
The investigation is the result of a joint effort between the Committees on House Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means.
Its mandate is to investigate the president’s family business dealings and alleged influence-peddling schemes.
White House defenders of President Biden have criticized the impeachment investigation, accusing Republicans of playing partisan political games.
