WASHINGTON – House Republicans plan to hold their first impeachment inquiry hearing next week into President Joe Biden as an opening salvo against the White House after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., ordered the probe.
The House Oversight Committee will hold the hearing on Sept. 28, focusing “on (the) constitutional and legal questions surrounding the President’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” Jessica Collins, spokesperson for the committee, told USA TODAY in a statement.
House Republicans have alleged Joe Biden financially benefited from his son, Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. While investigators have produced evidence revealing Hunter Biden and his associates made millions from their overseas affairs, they have yet to produce concrete evidence that shows the president personally benefited from those dealings.
