As the buzz about the House considering an inquiry against Joe Biden grew, the White House warned that such a move would be disastrous. The administration tried to add a bit of haughty arrogance to its statement, noting that the impeachment would be damaging to the image of the Republican Party.
Despite the growing number of House Republicans calling for the impeachment of Vice President Joe Biden, Speaker Kevin McCarthy has maintained his cautious stance. On Fox News, McCarthy stated that an official investigation into the matter is likely to happen soon. He said that an impeachment inquiry was necessary to ensure that the American people get the answers they need.
There are still reports of dissent within House Republicans. Some of them, who are moderates from districts that are usually competitive in elections, are not on board with the impeachment inquiry against Biden. The Biden administration hopes to capitalize on this rift within the Republican party.
The White House responded to McCarthy and other Republicans who called for Biden's impeachment.
Ian Sams, the White House's communications director, released a statement that seemed to be aimed at discrediting House Republicans who are considering an impeachment inquiry against Biden.
In his statement, Sams called the impeachment move a “baseless and irresponsible exercise” that would be detrimental to the Republican Party. He also noted that the allegations made against Biden by the Republicans would be “proved false.”
In addition, the White House has released a list of House Republicans who are against conducting an impeachment investigation against Biden. These individuals are mainly concerned with the growing number of investigations that have been conducted by House Republicans, which have uncovered possible wrongdoing by the president's family. The Biden administration is trying to use this rift within the party to portray the impeachment effort as a political stunt that is being carried out by the right-wing wing of the Republican party.
To address the growing number of House Republicans suggesting the launch of an impeachment investigation against Biden, the White House has created a “war room” to respond aggressively. A team of around 20 individuals, which includes several lawyers and aides, has been assembled to defend the administration against the possible move.
The White House's failure to address the mounting allegations against the president has raised concerns about its handling of the matter. An investigation into Biden's possible impeachment could start as early as this month, following a report by Breitbart that detailed multiple allegations against him and his family. It is not yet clear if the administration will continue to be dismissive of the allegations or if it will take the issue more seriously.
