Speaker Johnson Believes He Has Enough Votes To Begin Biden Impeachment

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said over the weekend he believes he has the votes to authorize a former impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden just 11 months out from the 2024 election.

Fox News host Pete Hegeseth asked: “We mentioned impeachment, which requires votes, and we mentioned that with Santos out, you have an even tighter margin. Do you have the votes formally to start an impeachment process?”

“Yeah, I believe we will. I suspect no Democrats will assist in this effort. But they should. The facts are so clear for everyone to see,” Johnson said.

“Just a couple of numbers to remember: just real quick off the top, $15 million. We know that the Biden family received at least $15 million from foreign nationals and companies, including Ukraine, Russia, and China. Just between 2014 and 2019, at least 16 times on record, Joe Biden has lied about his involvement in the family’s business dealings and Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Johnson added.

“We know 22 times—at least 22 times—the president met with or talked with Hunter’s foreign business associates. And we have checks,” the Speaker continued.

“We have checks written to Joe Biden that the Oversight Committee has found in the banking records: $40,000 from China and $200,000 from a now-bankrupt healthcare company that his brother James Biden swindled. But the evidence is so clear you cannot look away. And the Constitution requires the House to follow the truth wherever it leads. We—we—have to do this. We cannot stop the process,” he noted further.


Other Republicans agree. In September, for instance, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) pushed back on Democratic and left-wing media claims there is “no evidence” warranting an impeachment inquiry into Biden during an interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl.

“The facts are everywhere. There are text messages, there are e-mails, there are witnesses, there are whistleblowers, there are meetings, there are phone calls, there are dinners,” Mace said. “And you can’t say, hey, there’s a little bit of smoke, we’re not going to follow the fire.

“And the inquiry, my understanding is, as you said earlier, gives us expanded subpoena powers. I want the bank records of Joe Biden. All of that should be on the table to prove out the allegations in the SARS reports. We’re talking about a significant sum of money. We are talking about bribery. And in the Constitution Article 2 Section 4, that is the basis for impeachment,” she added.
