(FeaturedNews.com) – The first hearing in President Biden’s impeachment inquiry is going to be held on September 28 by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. The Committee has also announced their intentions to subpoena for access to Hunter Biden’s bank records.
In a statement, a House Oversight spokesperson noted that the hearing was going to be focused on the “constitutional and legal questions” regarding the possible abuse of public office by the President. Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) told reporters that the hearing was not expected to include new evidence. He proceeded to take a jab at the media by stating that there were some people in the press and Washington, D.C., who required a refresher course on all of the existing evidence.
Comer further noted that the Republicans have not yet found evidence to back the claims that President Biden had accepted bribes from Ukraine during his time serving as the Vice President, he believed those claims to be true.
The Democrats are likely to target the lack of new evidence in the hearing, especially as they have frequently pointed out that the House GOP has not managed to connect President Biden with evidence to any of their claims of wrongdoing.
On Tuesday, the White House also criticized the House GOP for proceeding with the impeachment, especially as Congress is heading towards a potential government shutdown. The White House spokesperson Ian Sams has argued that the impeachment inquiry is just an attempt to distract from the House GOP’s inability to govern and the negative effects that has had on the country.
