“Witch Hunt!” – Schumer Lashes Out at McCarthy For Announcing Impeachment Inquiry Against Joe Biden
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday lashed out at Speaker McCarthy and accused him of spearheading a “witch hunt” for announcing an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden.
Speaker McCarthy on Tuesday announced he is directing House committees to open an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden.
McCarthy scrambled to make a bold move as Congressman Matt Gaetz threatened to remove him as House Speaker.
“I am directing our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. Over the past several months, House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct—a culture of corruption,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy continued, “Biden used his official office to coordinate with Hunter Biden’s business partners about Hunter’s role in Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company. Finally, despite these serious allegations, it appears that the President’s family has been offered special treatment by Biden’s own administration–treatment that not otherwise would have received that they were not related to the President.
Schumer isn’t too happy now that the shoe is on the other foot.
The New York Democrat was quick to convict Trump during Pelosi’s slap-dash impeachment of Trump but now he’s crying like a baby.
“I think the impeachment inquiry is absurd. The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better, not go off on these chases and, uh, witch hunts,” Schumer said.
“The bottom line is, as we have said, you can only accomplish keeping the government open in a bipartisan way,” Schumer added.
