President Joe Biden may still be receiving benefits from oligarchs, and if House Speaker Kevin McCarthy tries to tie spending bills to an impeachment inquiry to investigate this, it will be met with “disaster,” Oversight Committee member Byron Donalds, R-Fla., told Newsmax.
On Monday, when asked by “Carl Higbie FRONTLINE” if there was enough evidence to start the impeachment inquiry into Biden, Donalds responded, “Yeah, 100%.”
Making the case for an impeachment inquiry, the congressman adds that the Oversight Committee has in its possession records of concealed accounts that “all started when Joe Biden was vice president.”
“They knowingly set up these accounts to conceal money from the American people,” Donalds continued. “The fact that Joe Biden allowed his son [Hunter] to do that already is public corruption first and foremost; that’s No. 1.”
“No. 2: There are concerns that there are still actually benefits associated from this corruption. The widow of the Moscow mayor, Elena Baturina, she’s an oligarch over in Russia. So when the Russian sanctions came down from President Biden, she mysteriously was left off the list. I wonder why?”
Amid the evidence and despite the eagerness of some members of the House GOP to begin the impeachment inquiry process, Donalds states that if McCarthy seeks to dangle impeachment inquiry as a means to push through fiscal legislation, his efforts will end in “disaster.”
“Let me put it this way: if this is gonna be his game plan, it is not gonna be met well. That would actually a disaster,” Donalds said. “There’s no such thing as dangling an impeachment vote so you can get away with spending more money.”
As part of the deal to end his 15-round election marathon for speakership in January, McCarthy agreed to lower the threshold for a motion to remove him as Speaker of the House from five members to one. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., last week threatened to invoke the motion if McCarthy did not move forward with an impeachment inquiry.
“When we get back to Washington in the coming weeks, we have got to seize the initiative,” Gaetz said. “That means forcing votes on impeachment. And if Kevin McCarthy stands in our way, he may not have the job long. So let’s hope that he works with us, not against us, but we’ve got contingency plans in the event that he’s not as productive.”
The House will return Tuesday.
