Hunter Biden’s major mistake just opened up Joe to impeachment

Biden’s son, Hunter, is nothing but a liability. And now the president’s ship is sinking thanks to him.

Because Hunter Biden’s major mistake just opened up Joe to impeachment.

Ever since the 2020 election and Hunter’s infamous laptop, Joe Biden has been trying to keep his son in the shadows.

He doesn’t want him to be prosecuted, but his cooperation and collusion may have just landed him in a world of hurt.

On Wednesday, House Republicans hinted that President Joe Biden might face impeachment charges in connection with his son Hunter Biden’s reluctance to cooperate with a congressional subpoena.

Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated in a letter demanding a slew of documents and communications by January 10 that their committees are “compelled to examine, as part of our impeachment inquiry, whether the President engaged in a conspiracy to obstruct a proceeding of Congress.”

In their letter to White House Counsel Edward Siskel, the chairmen emphasized how White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that President Biden was “familiar” with what Hunter Biden would say during a press engagement outside the U.S. Capitol in mid-December.

Hunter Biden utilized his Capitol Hill appearance to publicly demand that House Republicans present him with a public hearing rather than attending the closed-door interview as required by the congressional subpoena issued by House Republicans.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told POLITICO that he reserved the place where the First Son would deliver his speech and attended the ceremony.

Though Jean-Pierre has refused to provide additional details when pressed on whether President Biden attempted to persuade his son not to violate a congressional subpoena, Jordan and Comer have stated that they are confronted with the “troubling new question” of whether the commander in chief “corruptly sought to influence or obstruct” their proceeding.

“Such conduct could constitute an impeachable offense,” they wrote.

Citing criminal code, the chairmen also said it is “unlawful to ‘corruptly … endeavor[] to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any investigation or inquiry is being had by … any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress’” and “any person who ‘aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures’ the commission of a crime is punishable as a principal of the crime.”

Hunter Biden was summoned last month for a deposition as part of his father’s impeachment investigation, which is looking into the Biden family’s business dealings as well as how the Department of Justice handled its criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, which could lead to prison time.

House Republicans hinted that Hunter Biden might face contempt of Congress proceedings if he refused to testify in a public hearing — but only after a deposition.

Shortly after Hunter Biden’s press conference, the House voted on a party-line vote to formally initiate the impeachment inquiry, which Republicans believed would provide legal weight to their subpoenas.

President Biden, who is running for re-election next year, issued a long statement in which he accused House Republicans of “attacking me with lies” and “choosing to waste time on this baseless political stunt” that was “not supported by facts.”

In response to the recent letter from Comer and Jordan, House Democrats continued to oppose the corruption-focused impeachment inquiry.

“It has been a historically unproductive year in the MAGA GOP-led House,” Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee wrote on X.

“Republicans have ignored the critical issues that affect Americans. Instead, they have pursued a partisan, evidence-free impeachment inquiry designed to hurt President Biden ahead of the 2024 election.”
