The House Oversight Committee will hold the first impeachment inquiry hearing into Joe Biden next week, they confirmed on X on Tuesday.
According to the committee, the anticipated hearing will take place on Thursday, Sept. 28.
The first impeachment inquiry hearing date comes just a little over one week since Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., directed House Committees on the Judiciary, Oversight and Accountability, and Ways and Means to open an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.
“These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption and they warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives,” McCarthy explained, addressing the months-long House investigations that have sought information on Joe and Hunter Biden’s alleged criminal business dealings.
According to CNBC, a spokesperson for the Oversight Committee stated that the hearing on Sept. 28 would center on “constitutional and legal questions surrounding the President’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office.”
The House Oversight Committee is chaired by Rep. James Comer, R-Ky.
On Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., applied pressure on Speaker McCarthy as the impeachment inquiry is about to kick off, drafting up a congressional subpoena for Hunter Biden and requesting the speaker’s signature to seal the deal.
“It simply requires your date and signature,” Gaetz explained on X. “Millions of Americans are wondering if you’re serious.”
Per CNBC, the Oversight Committee is expected to subpoena the bank and personal records of Hunter Biden, as well as James Biden, the brother of Joe Biden.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., a member of the House Oversight Committee, stated of the upcoming hearing, “It’s time for the American people to know the truth. The Biden family was enriched beyond their wildest dreams by peddling the power and influence of Joe Biden. Federal bureaucrats covered it up. I look forward to the first of many impeachment inquiry hearings!”
