Opening Salvo: House Launches Joe Biden Impeachment Inquiry with First Hearing

by | Sep 28, 2023 at 3:05PM | Politics

In an unprecedented turn of events, the House of Representatives has launched an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden, making him one of the few U.S. presidents to face such a consequential process. This move comes as a significant development in the annals of American political history, as only three U.S. presidents have faced formal impeachment proceedings before Biden: Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump.

However, none of them were convicted by the Senate and removed from office. Additionally, Richard Nixon faced an impeachment inquiry but chose to resign before formal charges were brought against him.

The path to impeachment, as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, is intentionally arduous. The Founding Fathers designed this process to prevent frivolous charges against a sitting president. According to Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, a president can be removed from office through impeachment and conviction for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Today’s hearing marks the beginning of an investigation into evidence presented by Republicans, who claim that President Biden committed “high crimes and misdemeanors.” These allegations are the driving force behind the impeachment inquiry. The hearing aims to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to proceed with formal impeachment charges.

Meanwhile, the White House is engaged in a countdown to a potential government shutdown, leveraging it as a form of counterprogramming to the House Oversight Committee’s impeachment inquiry. The White House has warned of dire consequences should a government shutdown occur, including lost jobs, unpaid troops, and disruptions to vital programs.



The Republicans on the House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., are outlining the scope of their inquiry. Their focus is on Hunter Biden’s business dealings and any potential involvement by President Biden in these matters. Chairman Comer asserted that they have amassed “a mountain of evidence” suggesting President Biden’s complicity in alleged corrupt business dealings.

Comer pointed to instances where President Biden purportedly misled the American people about his knowledge of and participation in his family’s business ventures. “Joe Biden lied to the American people that he never spoke to his family about their business dealings,” Comer stated.

During the impeachment inquiry hearing, Republicans plan to present the evidence they believe supports their claims of wrongdoing by President Biden. They contend that the Biden family established over 20 shell companies that amassed more than $20 million between 2014 and 2019, with Joe Biden himself being a significant part of the selling process.

“Joe Biden is the brand, and Joe Biden showed up at least two dozen times with business targets and associates, sending signals of access, influence, and power to those prepared to pay for it. The American people demand accountability for this culture of corruption,” Comer asserted.

As the House embarks on this historic impeachment inquiry, the nation watches closely, awaiting the outcome and what it may mean for the Biden presidency. The proceedings are a stark reminder of the delicate balance between holding leaders accountable and ensuring a fair and rigorous process, as envisioned by the framers of the U.S. Constitution.
