(ConservativeHub.com) – On September 10, Rep. French Hill (R-Ark.) stated during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the House must not repeat the mistakes made by former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during former President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry when handling President Joe Biden’s inquiry. He indicated he feels it would be a bad move to “prematurely” move to impeach the way Pelosi did.
However, it doesn’t appear Hill’s comments made much of an impact. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has previously suggested he would go forward with an impeachment inquiry into Biden, and on September 12, he revealed that he was ordering the move. Not everyone in Congress has expressed support for this.
James Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability who is heading the congressional investigation into the Biden family’s foreign business activities, stated last week that he believes they had sufficient votes to launch the impeachment inquiry. However, according to CBS, Hill said in his interview that neither Comer nor Jim Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, had “even remotely completed” the probe into the Biden family.
The Arkansas representative stated that the two committees had not yet completed detailed enough quality work that would fit the standards expected by McCarthy in order to open an impeachment inquiry.
The investigations so far have not implicated Biden in any illegal activity, but according to many House Republicans, the impeachment inquiry would allow them to investigate deeper into the family’s activities.
Back in July, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) warned lawmakers to not fall into the “trap” of impeachment, according to an interview on “Mornings with Maria.”
