The Speaker of the House launched an impeachment trial against Joe Biden

SAN LUIS POTOSÍ, SLP., September 12, 2023.- The president of the US House of Representatives, Republican Kevin McCarthy, ordered this Tuesday the opening of the impeachment investigation against President Joe Biden, in an effort to obtain bank records and other documents of the president and his son Hunter Biden.

Many in McCarthy’s party were outraged when the House, controlled by Democrats, twice impeached Republican President Donald Trump, in 2019 and 2021, although he was acquitted both times by the Senate.

Some Republican lawmakers have said they will try to remove McCarthy as House leader if he does not proceed with an impeachment trial against Biden.

Biden, who defeated Trump in the 2020 election, is seeking re-election next year.

“I have directed our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden,” McCarthy told reporters. “We will go where the evidence takes us.”

The White House has said there is no basis for an investigation and Biden has teased Republicans about a possible impeachment trial.
