Impeachment Inquiry Begins

This afternoon the House voted 221-212 to open an impeachment inquiry on President Biden.

"We are now at a pivotal moment in our investigation. We will soon depose and interview several members of the Biden family and their associates about these influence peddling schemes. But we are facing obstruction from the White House," Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said on the House floor ahead of the vote.

It appears there is sufficient damaging information to convince the House to impeach Biden. Remember, an impeachment is the equivalent of indictment or "charging with a crime." The hope is to convince voters he is corrupt.

To convict the Senate needs 60 senators to agree, and that is unlikely to happen in a chamber where Democrats hold a slender 51-49 majority and are highly unlikely to vote against their president.


Democrats criticize the House for focusing on impeachment and ignoring the country's needs. This claim ignores the reality that a Democratic Senate will not pass much that a Republican House okays, making legislating largely pointless.
