President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton has called on the GOP to get serious about going after the Democrats and the politicized federal agencies by starting impeachment proceedings. 

"The Justice Department is not going to do anything about all this Biden corruption," Fitton said on the Tuesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "So they [GOP members of Congress] need to step up and initiate an immediate impeachment inquiry so we can begin to get this information out in a more aggressive way." 

Hunter Biden struck a deal with federal prosecutors to avoid prison by pleading guilty to two tax crimes and admitting to a gun charge that could be dismissed, court records released Tuesday show.

Conservatives from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on down derided the plea agreement as a “sweetheart deal” and a “traffic ticket” emblematic of a “two-tiered” justice system because it spares Hunter Biden from prison while leaving Donald Trump facing hundreds of years in prison on 71 felonies in two separate indictments.

President of the Article III Project Mike Davis further called out former US Attorney General Bill Barr for not bringing attention to the Biden family scandal sooner, despite having received information about it during Biden's presidential campaign.

"Bill Barr sat on it for months and months and months and didn't do a damn thing about it," Davis told the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "And look where we are now."

"We have Bill Barr out there calling for Trump's head because Trump kept his presidential records which he's allowed to keep under the Presidential Records Act," he continued. "But [we] seem to be ignoring and dodging and weaving on Bill Barr falling down on the job by not alerting people that a potential President of the United States who became the President of the United States, could be compromised by this foreign bribery scheme."
