McCarthy says House may launch Biden impeachment inquiry when Congress reconvenes

"The only stories that have not changed are the whistleblowers from the IRS. Their story has held up time and again," he went on.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy suggested on Tuesday the House of Representatives could launch an impeachment inquiry in the near future if the Biden administration does not provide lawmakers with a litany of requested documents.

The California lawmaker suggested that, should the administration stall House investigations into the first family's business dealings, the lower chamber would resort to an impeachment inquiry.

"The thing that holds up whether we do impeachment inquiry, provide us the documents we’re asking... If they provide us the documents, there wouldn’t be a need for impeachment inquiry," McCarthy told Larry Kudlow on Fox Business. "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 impeachment inquiry when we come back into session."

Myriad House leaders have requested materials to further their inquiries into the first family and the administration's alleged weaponization of the federal government. McCarthy did not specify what documents to which he was referring. He did, however, tout the lower chamber's efforts to shed light on allegations against the Biden family.

"The only reason you know of all this information is because we took the majority and we're holding the administration accountable. It is appalling what we have learned. It is different from what President Joe Biden has told us," McCarthy told Larry Kudlow on Fox Business. 

"The only stories that have not changed are the whistleblowers from the IRS. Their story has held up time and again," he went on. "If the Biden administration continues to fight to withhold information that could really clear all this up... we would have to move to an impeachment inquiry."

McCarthy went on to liken the Biden administration and its use of federal office for allegedly illicit means to the administration of Richard Nixon.
