House investigations of President Joe Biden’s actions on behalf of son Hunter’s clients are now an impeachment inquiry, Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced Tuesday.
For all the inevitable rage from the other side of the aisle, it’s a no-brainer.
In eight months, House GOP probes have proven that Joe was in close cahoots with Hunter’s enterprises: He broke bread with Hunter’s clients, jumped on calls with them, even wrote at least one college recommendation.
And, when Hunter’s Burisma paymasters demanded rescue from a Ukrainian corruption investigation, Joe went to Ukraine and blackmailed the government to fire that prosecutor — threatening to withhold $1 billion in US aid, even though it now seems the rest of the Obama administration still had him down as a good guy.
Yes, details need to be pinned down in all that: Republicans shouldn’t rush to actual impeachment without a full investigation (even though Democrats did rush to impeach then-President Donald Trump over his Ukraine call threatening to delay an aid payment).
First, the American public needs to know what’s in the thousands of pseudonym emails Joe was then sending, as well as exactly where all the millions funneled through Hunter’s dozens of shell companies came from and went to.
