Joe Biden’s goose is cooked after what Republicans just did to him

The President has done nothing but destroy this country. For that, he’s being forced to pay.

And now Joe Biden’s goose is cooked after what Republicans just did to him.

On Wednesday, the House voted to launch its impeachment probe into President Biden, taking a major step that GOP leaders have maintained is required to push the White House to cooperate with their investigation.

The measure was approved by a vote of 221 to 212, with every Republican voting in favor and every present Democrat voting against it. Following the passage of the bill, there was some light cheering on the Republican side of the chamber, with complete silence on the Democratic side.

“We are now at a pivotal moment in our investigation. We will soon depose and interview several members of the Biden family and their associates about these influence-peddling schemes. But we are facing obstruction from the White House,” Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said on the House floor ahead of the vote.

“The White House is seeking to block key testimony from current and former White House staff. It is also withholding thousands of records from Joe Biden’s time as Vice President. President Biden must be held accountable for his lies, corruption, and obstruction. We have a duty to provide the accountability and transparency that Americans demand and deserve.”

The Republican-led committees on Oversight, Ways and Means, and the Judiciary have been looking into allegations that Biden used his position as Vice President in the Obama administration to benefit his family through foreign enterprises.

It has focused on one of the president’s brothers, James Biden, and his son, Hunter Biden, who is being investigated by the federal government on tax and firearms-related allegations.

Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., instructed the House to launch an impeachment investigation into Biden in September, but the White House has dismissed the investigation as illegitimate because there has been no formal vote on the topic.

The White House “requested” the House vote, according to House Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn.

“The White House sent a letter… saying that the subpoenas [Republicans] had served will not be honored and won’t even be recognized without a full vote of the House. So our speaker has done exactly what I would expect he would do as a lawyer. We’re going to honor that. We’re going to go ahead and do a full floor vote,” Emmer said.

“He knows we’re probably going to have to go to court to enforce these anyway, so might as well eliminate any of the objections that they have.”

Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-Iowa, told Fox News Digital that Republicans were voting because they understand the gravity of the impeachment process.

“We don’t want to minimize what it means to have an impeachment, which I think is what the Democrats did. We want to be able to have that tool to be a significant tool to hold presidents accountable,” she said. “We don’t want it just to be a knee-jerk reaction.”

Rep. Ben Cline, R-Va., a member of the Judiciary Committee, stated, “I think the House Republicans will follow the facts wherever they lead… will ensure that we have the facts and expose them to the American people.”

In a statement issued after the vote, Biden accused House Republicans of wasting time with partisan assaults while ignoring vital concerns confronting the country.

“We have to address the situation at our southern border, and I am determined to try to fix the problem. We need funding to strengthen border security, but Republicans in Congress won’t act to help,” he said.

Biden also stated that he is striving to “ensure that inflation remains low and job growth remains high,” but he criticized Congress of refusing to assist him.

“Instead of doing anything to help make Americans’ lives better, they are focused on attacking me with lies. Instead of doing their job on the urgent work that needs to be done, they are choosing to waste time on this baseless political stunt that even Republicans in Congress admit is not supported by facts,” he said.

The vote comes only hours after Hunter Biden made a surprise appearance outside the United States Capitol on Wednesday.

He was supposed to give a closed-door deposition to the Oversight Committee, but instead he gave a brief statement to media about his father’s innocence before leaving Capitol Hill.
