Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, released the following statement following Speaker McCarthy’s announcement of the House opening a formal impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden.
“For months, House Republicans have conducted methodical oversight investigations into President Biden’s influence peddling scheme and have uncovered serious allegations into his conduct. Unlike the Democrat’s soviet-style impeachment of President Trump, House Republicans are committed to conducting a thorough investigation into President Biden in the pursuit of oversight and accountability.
“Following numerous witness testimonies and interviews, including that of the former business partner of the president’s son, we’ve learned that President Biden lied to the American people about his knowledge and involvement in his son’s business dealings. By launching a formal impeachment inquiry, the House Committees on Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways & Means will have additional tools needed to further investigate serious and credible allegations of abuse of power and corruption by the President and gather evidence necessary for accountability. Americans deserve answers and expect accountability.
“I will continue to work with my colleagues and do my part to ensure that President Biden and his administration are held accountable for any wrongdoings.”
