Florida GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna announces impeachment inquiry vote likely to happen in October
"Hearing vote on impeachment inquiry is going to happen... likely in October," Luna wrote.
Florida GOP Rep. Anna Paulina Luna announced on Friday that a decision on an impeachment inquiry is likely to happen in October.
Luna did not make clear who would be the subject of the impeachment inquiry.
"Two major updates," Luna wrote on X, the platform previously called Twitter. "Hearing vote on impeachment inquiry is going to happen... likely in October."
"My office will be filing an appropriations rider to block federal funds to jurisdictions/ federal funding from being used to prosecute presidential candidates before 2024," she added. "We’re not letting these megalomaniacs use taxpayer dollars to fund this divisive and illegal trash."
Luna was likely referring to the arrest of former President Donald Trump in Fulton County Georgia where he surrendered on 13 felony charges related to alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election result in the state.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has hinted before in recent statements that the House could launch an impeachment inquiry into President Biden as soon as the House reconvenes.
“The thing that holds up whether we'll do an impeachment inquiry: Provide us the documents we’re asking,” he said during a Fox Business interview. “The whole determination here is how the Bidens handle this.”
“If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy continued. “But if they withhold the documents and fight like they have now to not provide to the American public what they deserve to know, we will move forward with an impeachment inquiry when we come back into session.”
Many House leaders have requested materials to further their inquiries into the first family and the administration's alleged weaponization of the federal government.
There have also been calls from House Republicans to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas due to his handling of the crisis at the southern border.
