GOP Leader Claims’ No Evidence’ Of Biden Crimes

Representative Dave Joyce (R-Ohio) voiced his doubt about the accusations against President Biden. Despite casting a vote earlier in the day to formalize the impeachment inquiry into Biden, Joyce asserted that he had yet to encounter any evidence substantiating the allegations.

During an interview with NewsNation’s Dan Abrams, Joyce criticized the abuse of the impeachment process, arguing that it should be reserved for individuals who are mentally unfit or have committed crimes while in office. He emphasized the need for investigative committees to gather information and present it in an orderly fashion, allowing people to make rational decisions based on the evidence.

After months of investigating Biden’s family’s business dealings, House Republicans formalized the impeachment inquiry into the President through a party-line vote. However, when pressed to specify the crimes being investigated, Joyce could not provide a clear answer.

Referring to Joyce’s background as a former prosecutor, Abrams questioned the basis for the investigation and asked about the high crimes or misdemeanors being examined. Joyce admitted that he had not seen any evidence but anticipated the investigative committees would present their findings.

Joyce’s decision to support the impeachment inquiry was influenced by the White House’s refusal to comply with document requests from House committees. The White House had argued that the inquiry was unconstitutional since it had not been formally established.

Joyce acknowledged that one of his reasons for voting in favor of the inquiry was to pressure the White House into providing the requested documents. He clarified that the current process was merely an inquiry, not an actual impeachment. In his view, it was comparable to requesting a subpoena.

This unexpected shift in Joyce’s stance highlights the ongoing debate surrounding the impeachment inquiry against President Biden. While some Republicans are eager to pursue the allegations, others, like Joyce, demand concrete evidence before supporting further action. As the investigative committees continue their work, the nation waits to see what evidence will be presented and how it will impact the future of the inquiry.
