House set to vote on formalizing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden with floor vote

Republicans are expected to vote Wednesday on a resolution to formalize an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden as their investigation reaches a critical point.

As the president’s son is in Washington, DC, and has been subpoenaed to appear for a closed-door interview, a potential showdown between House Republicans and Hunter Biden is also expected to come to a head on Wednesday. The lawmakers are attempting to escalate an impeachment inquiry and want Hunter Biden to sit down and answer their questions.

As of now, House Republicans haven’t had enough votes to legitimize their ongoing investigation with a full chamber vote since the probe has failed to uncover wrongdoing by the president.

Even though McCarthy had previously criticized Democrats for taking the same step in 2019 when they launched the first impeachment investigation of then-President Donald Trump without taking a vote, he unilaterally launched the inquiry in September.

House Speaker Mike Johnson and his leadership team are now confident that they will be able to pass the vote on Wednesday.

Numerous Republican lawmakers and aides argue that a floor vote will strengthen their legal position against the White House and fortify their subpoenas to secure key witness testimony.

According to GOP Rep. Nick LaLota, who represents a swing district in New York, “the inquiry will help inform us.”
