Impeachment inquiry launched into President Biden

Published

on

The US House of Representatives will initiate a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, as announced by Kevin McCarthy, the House’s most senior Republican.

McCarthy specified that the inquiry’s focus would center on “allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption” attributed to President Biden.

Republicans have been actively investigating President Biden’s actions since they gained control of the House in January. Despite months of scrutiny, no concrete evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden has been uncovered. However, the investigations have shed more light on the business dealings of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, which Republicans find questionable, and President Biden’s knowledge of his son’s activities.

At a press conference held at the US Capitol, McCarthy asserted that there were “serious and credible” allegations related to the President’s conduct, which, when considered together, suggest a “culture of corruption.” The White House swiftly condemned McCarthy’s decision, with spokesperson Ian Sams stating that House Republicans have investigated the President for nine months and found no evidence of wrongdoing, labeling it “extreme politics at its worst.”

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden is currently under federal investigation for potential tax crimes associated with his foreign business interests.

This impeachment inquiry grants congressional investigators greater legal authority, including the issuance of subpoenas for documents and testimony enforceable in court. The US Constitution permits a president’s impeachment for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors.” The process could lead to an impeachment vote in the House, followed by a Senate trial, which is a political, not criminal, procedure.

Democrats hold the Senate majority and would likely block the proceedings if it advances to that stage. McCarthy’s move to support impeachment could be seen as an attempt to garner support from right-wing House Republicans amid ongoing budget negotiations.

China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
