( – On Wednesday evening, leading figures from the House Judiciary, Oversight, and Ways & Means Committees shared a document detailing the objectives of the GOP’s impeachment investigation concerning President Biden.

This document release precedes the inaugural impeachment hearing by the House Oversight Committee scheduled for 10:00 a.m. ET at the Rayburn House Office Building.

Predominantly, the document delves into the previously presented facts surrounding Hunter Biden’s commercial interactions and queries about President Biden’s possible participation. Importantly, it lays out the main questions the GOP hopes to address during the inquiry. Furthermore, it emphasizes that the inquiry will examine both Biden’s tenure as Vice President and President and the intervening period.

The memo elaborates, “The intent of the current inquiry is to discern if there are adequate reasons for the Committees to formulate impeachment articles against President Biden for the House’s contemplation. This investigation will aid in establishing whether President Biden partook in any acts warranting impeachment.”

The GOP has identified four primary concerns:

Did Biden, in his roles as Vice President or President, modify any governmental policies or actions due to financial or other gains benefiting him or his family from foreign entities?

In his positions, did Biden misuse his trusted position to offer foreign entities access to him or his office in return for financial compensations to him or his family?

Was there any misconduct where Biden might have misrepresented his position to benefit financially by insinuating special access for foreign entities?

Has President Biden interfered with or obstructed investigations, including those related to Hunter Biden?

The document further clarifies the temporal scope of the investigation, emphasizing the entire span of Biden’s Vice Presidency to the present, inclusive of the interregnum.

The GOP members opined that the Constitution encompasses misdeeds occurring during and outside office tenure. They argue that impeachment’s essence is to safeguard citizens from dishonest officials; hence, the timing of the act is inconsequential constitutionally.

There are claims suggesting President Biden’s involvement in international business ventures established by his son, Hunter, wherein Hunter allegedly assured that his father would use his official capacity to provide benefits in exchange for financial rewards.

The official stance of the White House is clear – President Biden had no joint business undertakings with his son. They have criticized the GOP’s impeachment investigation, terming it as unfounded and a mere political maneuver, especially with the timing just ahead of potential government funding lapse.

The pressing issue of extending the current year’s financial provisions is being debated in Congress. Without an agreement by Sept. 30, there’s a looming threat of a partial governmental halt.

White House representative, Ian Sams, commented on the situation, indicating that the GOP’s focus seems misplaced. He believes the attempt to undermine President Biden appears more vital to them than averting a governmental halt and the ensuing ramifications for American citizens.
