House Republicans are set to begin President Joe Biden’s official inquiry with a resolution that will be voted on next Wednesday.
Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) on Thursday introduced a 14-page resolution set to authorize an impeachment inquiry into the president for his involvement in his family’s corrupt financial practices.

“It’s time for the House to take the next step in the Biden impeachment investigation and adopt an impeachment inquiry resolution. The White House and multiple witnesses have repeatedly refused to cooperate with the investigation and have rejected subpoenas. Despite this refusal, the investigation has uncovered alarming details that demand further scrutiny,” Armstrong said in a statement.
The resolution will be brought before the entire House on Wednesday, Dec. 13, for a vote. Armstrong detailed several pieces of evidence House investigators have uncovered since they began their investigation into the president and his family.
“The Biden family and associates received more than $24 million from foreign nationals. Joe Biden received $200,000 from his brother, James Biden, the same day James received a $200,000 loan from a failing rural hospital operator. Joe Biden also received $40,000 in laundered Chinese money from his brother and sister-in-law. It’s become clear that the Biden family sold influence around the world using Joe Biden’s name as the product. An investigation in any jurisdiction around the country would move forward if it had these facts. A vote on an impeachment inquiry puts the House in the best position to prevail in court and uncover the truth,” Armstrong said.
So far, President Joe Biden has continued to deny all wrongdoing.
Armstrong’s resolution needs a simple majority to p[ass on the House floor. With the entire House Democrats expected to vote against the bill and the expulsion of former Rep Gorge Santos (R-NY), it remains uncertain if the resolution will be successful.
Santos’ expulsion means the GOP now holds a narrower majority than it did at the beginning of the current congress. The success of the resolution will depend on the entire House Republican voting for the resolution.
