Biden To Be Criminally Charged?

( – Assuring that Joe Biden is truly a criminal who is willing to take the nation to an abyss, House Republicans are exploring options to issue criminal referrals against Biden and his close associates amidst increasing doubts regarding sufficient votes for his impeachment, even within their own party.

Lawmakers have been sending correspondence to the Department of Justice (DOJ) where they urged investigations into Biden, his family, and associates for alleged specific crimes.

According to The New York Times, this move aligns with former President Donald Trump’s pledge to prosecute Biden if he triumphs in November’s election.

“There’s nothing that I’ve heard in the last couple of weeks that says that we are anywhere close to having the votes [for impeachment],” said Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D., the architect behind the resolution for the impeachment investigation.

Seeking criminal charges could also avoid a repetition of the House Republicans’ failed attempt to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Armstrong suggested exploring charges, which include purported violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act linked to Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. He also suggested that the DOJ investigates accusations of obstruction.

Despite ongoing impeachment efforts, House Republicans have scheduled another public hearing, this time involving Hunter Biden’s former business partners. However, Hunter Biden has declined to participate.

Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) emphasized the necessity to obtain audio recordings of Biden’s interviews with special counsel Robert Hur regarding classified documents and underscored that criminal referrals remain an option.

Similarly, Representative James Comer (R-Ky.) highlighted the importance of holding Biden accountable through criminal referrals if the DOJ fails to take such matters seriously.

The diminishing GOP majority in the House may impede progress toward an impeachment vote. Representative Ken Buck (R-Colo.) who will be departing next week, will leave Republicans with a slim majority.

Speaker Mike Johnson acknowledged ongoing discussions regarding criminal referrals but stressed the need for further deliberation.

However, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said it makes little sense to seek criminal referrals against Biden, as “we don’t refer a seated president for criminal charges.”

He suggested focusing on referring Biden’s family members for criminal charges based on existing committee findings.
