Kevin McCarthy claims that the president lied about his son’s business dealings abroad; They will seek to take him to trial.

Washington. The president of the United States House of Representatives, Republican Kevin McCarthy, announced yesterday the opening of an investigation for a political trial against Joe Biden for alleged corruption.

I am asking a House committee to open a formal impeachment investigation,” said the Republican congressman, who believes that the Democratic leader has “lied” to the American people.

For the White House this process is “extreme politics at its worst.”

The US Constitution states that Congress can remove the president for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

House Republicans, who have held the majority since January, are conducting a series of parliamentary investigations into the affairs of Hunter Biden, the president’s youngest son.

Republican lawmakers say they have “identified serious and credible allegations about President Biden’s conduct,” McCarthy declared, accusing the Democrat of fueling a “culture of corruption.”

He also assured that the president “lied to the American people about what he knew about his family’s businesses abroad.”

However, at the moment this investigation has practically no chance of leading to Biden’s impeachment since the Democrats have the majority of seats in the Senate, the chamber in charge of trying presidents.

Hunter, son of trouble

Hunter, a 53-year-old former businessman, has become the favorite target of the American right.

Republican representatives accuse him of having done business in Ukraine and China helped by the contacts and name of his father, then vice president of Barack Obama (2009-2017).

The White House responded to McCarthy’s statements. “The House of Representatives has investigated the president for nine months and they have found no evidence of wrongdoing,” Ian Sams, government spokesman for oversight and investigations, said in X.
