House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) recently announced that President Joe Biden’s days as a non-impeached president are likely numbered.
McCarthy said that investigations into Biden and his family’s business dealings are “rising to the level of impeachment inquiry” during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The House speaker claimed that IRS whistleblowers, as well as the revelation of shell companies, have provided Republicans with evidence that would not have been obtained if they weren’t in control of the House.

“When Biden was running for office, he told the public he has never talked about business. He said his family has never received a dollar from China, which we now prove is not true,” McCarthy told Hannity.
“We now have some of the most credible whistleblowers, these 10-year IRS agents who have come forward [and] said the Biden family has been treated differently,” he added.
McCarthy alleged that the Biden family has received “millions of foreign money” through shell companies. He reminded Hannity that such information would not have been obtained if “Republicans had not taken the majority.”
“We’ve only followed where the information has taken us. But, Hannity, this is rising to the level of impeachment inquiry, which provides Congress the strongest power to get the rest of the knowledge and information needed,” he said.
“Because this president has also used something we have not seen since Richard Nixon: use the weaponization of government to benefit his family and deny Congress the ability to have the oversight,” McCarthy continued.
Hannity then asked McCarthy whether the Biden family’ taking of millions of dollars coming from countries that are adversaries of the U.S., such as China and Romania, is proof that the White House is a “criminal enterprise.”
“If we are talking about millions of dollars coming from our top geopolitical foes … wouldn’t that mean that we have a criminal enterprise as president of the United States?” Hannity asked.
“The Biden family runs, they say, a company but never had an office, and shell companies to be able to pay through, but if they really ran it for foreign countries, why didn’t you get money from France, from Germany, from the U.K.? Why does it have to be from China, Romania, these countries that have real challenges?” McCarthy replied.
