(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Dark clouds are gathering over the increasingly embattled Joe Biden presidency as a Republican US congressman declared it is “go time” for the president’s impeachment, and millions agree it is time.
The GOP majority in the House of Representatives has been investigating the Biden family finances and Hunter Biden’s murky foreign business dealings for months.
Many House Republicans, including Speaker Kevin McCarthy, have vowed impeachment proceedings against the president at the start of the new political season.
“I think, as on the Republican side, we’ve got to be ready, and I think it’s go time,” US Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN) told the Newsmax program “Newsline” on Monday.
“I mean, I don’t know why we have to drag this out,” the Tennessee Republican added.
Ogles already drafted articles of impeachment against the president in June for “weaponizing” the White House and covering up “the business and influence-peddling schemes of his family from congressional oversight and public accountability” during his eight years as vice president.
The lawmaker disagreed with House Speaker McCarthy’s (R-CA) decision to start an impeachment inquiry to investigate the recent revelations about the Bidens.
“My articles of impeachment can be offered as a privileged motion, which would trigger a vote within 48 hours. You’ve got tens of millions of dollars that have been accepted by the Biden family. The evidence is there,” Ogles said.
He was referring to the House Republicans’ investigation discovering that nine members of the president’s family received a combined total of $20 million through wire transfers from foreign nations, such as Communist China, Putin’s Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Kazakhstan.
“Why are we going to drag this out, and give the opportunity for the White House to kind of push back, and use this to somehow bring [former President Donald] Trump into the equation because you know that that’s what they’re going to do. They’re going to try to make Trump the issue, not Biden,” the Tennessee Republican warned.
McCarthy recently said he wanted an impeachment inquiry before going to a direct vote, thus boosting the House’s investigative powers.
“It is a natural step forward that you would have to go to an impeachment inquiry. [It] provides Congress the apex of legal power to get all the information they need,” the speaker said recently.
