First Biden impeachment hearing scheduled for Thursday 28 September

The first impeachment hearings in the Republican inquiry into President Joe Biden has been scheduled for Thursday 28 September.

A spokesperson for the House Oversight Committee said that the hearing is set to “focus on constitutional and legal questions surrounding the President’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” according to Spectrum News.

The spokesperson added that the lawmakers are planning on subpoenaing the personal and business bank records of Mr Biden, his brother James Biden, and the president’s son Hunter Biden “as early as this week”.

The hearing comes amid the House GOP’s ongoing investigation of Hunter Biden’s business dealings.

The chair of the Oversight Committee, James Comer of Kentucky, said that the hearing will review existing evidence, according to Axios.

“We’ll be issuing the details hopefully by the end of the day or first thing in the morning,” he said on Tuesday.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy launched an impeachment inquiry without a House vote on 12 September, a tactic he previously criticised then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi for employing during the impeachment proceedings for former President Donald Trump.

A number of Republicans in both the Senate and the House have said that they don’t think there’s enough evidence to launch an inquiry.

The Biden White House has slammed the probe and they have pushed the media to look into the claims made by the Republicans.

“The Oversight Committee will continue to follow the evidence and money trail to provide the transparency and accountability that Americans demand from their government,” a spokesperson for the panel said.
