“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.

GOP rep. torches reporter claiming Americans see no evidence for Biden impeachment: 'You don't report on it’

Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., called out a journalist on Tuesday for claiming that Americans "can't see" evidence that President Biden has committed wrongdoing worthy of impeachment.

The GOP lawmaker pointed out several examples of evidence of the president’s corruption in response to a question reportedly from U.K. Channel 4 Washington correspondent Siobhan Kennedy. He also said that many Americans are in the dark about it because mainstream reporters like her "don’t report on it."

The exchange happened during a press conference held by members of Congress outside the Capitol Tuesday, hours after Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., announced a congressional impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

Perry, the House Freedom Caucus chair, motioned to Kennedy to ask him one final question before he left the podium. She said, "Can I just ask, what actual evidence do you have as opposed to allegations to show to the American people that would merit an actual impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden, and prove that today isn’t just about –"

Perry interjected with a sarcastic reply. "Oh, I don’t know."

She then finished her question, wondering if McCarthy was doing this "for the sake of enacting political revenge for the impeachment of Donald Trump."

Perry immediately shut Kennedy down, declaring, "This isn’t about political revenge. We have the bank accounts. We can see – ma’am – you can see that the homes that the Bidens own can’t be afforded on a congressional or a Senate salary."

ABC News Plays Defense for Biden Over House GOP Impeachment Inquiry

Now that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is finally launching an impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden, we will get to see most of the media pull a complete 180 degree turn on impeaching presidents.

On ABC News, it has already started.

In their coverage of the issue, they repeatedly refer to House Republicans as ‘far right’ and ‘hard right.’ They also say that there is ‘no evidence’ or ‘no hard evidence’ of any wrongdoing by Biden.

This is the media gearing up to defend their party and it’s so obvious.

NewsBusters has details:

On Tuesday morning, House Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced the opening of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden for numerous instances of abuse of power and obstruction of justice that congressional investigators have uncovered. By Tuesday evening, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News were enraged over the impeachment inquiry that was launched.
ABC was by far the worst during their coverage, with both anchor David Muir and Capitol Hill correspondent Rachel Scott howling over the news and lobbing smears against Republicans like “hard right” and “far-right.”
“Under intense pressure from hard-right Republicans in the House, Speaker Kevin McCarthy is now launching an impeachment inquiry into President Biden,” Muir huffed.
“McCarthy said just two weeks ago that there would need to be a vote for this, but tonight, now saying he’s launching it, no vote,” he added.
Muir made sure to hype the fact that all Democrats and a few weak, feckless, liberal Republicans were against the impeachment of Biden: “Democrats, even some Republicans, have been skeptical there’s any clear evidence to take this step. And politically, could it backfire?”

Grounds for Biden impeachment inquiry explained in six words: ‘Public offices are not for sale’

Amid partisan howls and recriminations from congressional Democrats and the White House, McCarthy scheduled a meeting of the House GOP caucus for Thursday where he planned to further explain to fellow lawmakers the five grounds justifying the inquiry:

  • Biden made false statements to the Americans public to get elected and since he took office, including denying that his family did not get money from communist China when in fact it got millions.
  • The president facilitated his family's enrichment as Barack Obama's vice president by joining phone calls and meetings with his son Hunter's business associates. "Eyewitness testimony revealed that the President joined multiple phone calls and had various interactions with his son's business partners," he wrote.
  • Biden presided over a family that collected nearly $20 million in foreign proceeds – some from oligarchs of concern to U.S. – and had more than 150 banking transactions flagged as suspicious.
  • The FBI received information in 2020 – yet to be corroborated or debunked – that Biden was the beneficiary of a $10 million bribe from a Ukrainian company called Burisma Holdings that was under investigation for corruption and who had hired his son, The allegation is concerned because there also is evidence Biden "used his official office to coordinate with Hunter Biden's business partner about Hunter's role in Burisma" during a time when the former vice president withheld a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee to force the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating. Burisma.
  • Since becoming president, his administration has taken actions to thwart or minimize potential investigation and prosecution of Hunter Biden on criminal charges, including a "sweetheart plea deal that President Biden's Department of Justice tried to sneak past the public" this summer before a judge rejected it.
McCarthy stressed that an inquiry is not a formal impeachment but rather a mechanism for determining in the future whether articles of impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors are warranted.

Income dropped, poverty soared under Biden: Census Bureau

Despite the Biden administration's efforts to tout the alleged successes of "Bidenomics," a report from the United States Census Bureau has revealed that many Americans saw their economic situation deteriorate dramatically in the first half of Biden's term.

While the official poverty rate hovered around 11.5% in both 2021 and 2022, according to the report, the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) increased 4.6% in 2022 to reach 12.4%, marking the first overall increase in that metric since 2010. In total, 37.9 million Americans lived in poverty in 2022. The report partially attributed the increase to the expiration of tax credits credits and pandemic stimulus payments.

Income, meanwhile, dropped across an array of metrics. Real median household income declined by 2.3% from $76,330 to $74,580, while real median earnings of all workers dropped 2.2%. The drop was less severe among full-time, year-round workers, who saw a 1.3% decline. Inflation soared 7.8% from 2021 to 2022, marking the largest single-year increase in cost of living since 1981.

The Census Bureau statement follows some other bad economic news for the president. The unemployment rate in August rose from 3.5% to 3.8% while inflation ticked up to 3.2%, marking the first increase after a consistent, year-long decline.

Ukraine Plays Key Role in Biden Impeachment Inquiry, Just as It Did With Trump

The centerpiece of the allegations goes back to 2016, when then-Vice President Biden used a $1 billion loan guarantee as leverage to have Ukraine fire prosecutor Victor Shokin, who was investigating Ukrainian energy company Burisma. At the time, the vice president's son Hunter Biden was collecting $1 million a year to sit on the company’s board and Burisma associates were pressuring him to ensure any investigations into the company’s owner were quashed.

It was President Trump’s requesting assistance from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in investigating this matter during a 2019 phone call that prompted House Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry of him and later voting to impeach him. President Trump was acquitted by the GOP-led Senate at the time.

Ukraine has long been a crucible of geopolitical tensions, culminating in Russia’s invasion of the country in 2022. Hunter Biden was given the Burisma position in 2014, three months after Vice President Biden was designated by President Barack Obama as “point-man” for Ukraine.

Democrats Say Republicans Just Using Impeachment To Try To Get Around Rigged Election System

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Democrats have expressed aghastment at the GOP's new low of using impeachment to try to get around an election system that has been thoroughly and substantially rigged.

"Those conniving Republicans are at it again," said Senator Chuck Schumer ever so nasally from the steps of the Capitol. "They're always trying to undermine our Constitutional structures just to get around how we undermined our nation's election process. The nerve!"

The GOP would be foolish to let Biden go into the 2024 election with a failed impeachment under his belt.

Of course Joe Biden should be removed from office and spend his final days in a federal prison. But he won't. That's not the way things work in the Swamp. The Republicans will do the inquiry and dole out our money to their cronies to "investigate". GOP scum don't have the nads to vote to impeach, and even if they do the numbers in the Senate to convict aren't there. There could be video of Joe Biden raping and killing a toddler and not a single Democrat would vote to convict him.

Isn't it sad that everything in our government - no matter how cut and dried - is voted right along party lines?

🔥 The game is afoot! Yesterday, as you must already be aware, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced the initiation of a formal presidential impeachment inquiry into the former Vice-President, Joseph Robinette Biden. McCarthy’s comments at the clip:

An impeachment inquiry can be opened in two ways. The first, traditional, way is a vote of the full House of Representatives, which until President Trump’s term was the only way you could do it. The new second way has been called the “Pelosi Precedent,” where the Speaker of the House can just “announce” an impeachment inquiry, and bingo-bongo, you’re cooking with gas. That’s how former Speaker Pelosi started the Trump impeachments, both of them, breaking from prior procedure and creating a whole new easier and faster way.

It was turbo impeachment! So, that’s what Kevin McCarthy did. He just followed the Pelosi Precedent and announced the impeachment. It only takes one person now. Game on.

There seems to be some confusion over whether McCarthy actually commenced impeachment proceedings. He did. And if you have any doubt, Establishment Media sure thinks he did:


The New York Times morphed into the Daily Beast so slowly that nobody noticed.


But second, and maybe even more important, the impeachment inquiry turbo-charges the House’s investigative powers. For example, Biden directed the National Archives to refuse to turn over 5,400 emails he sent under his various clever pseudonyms like “Robert L. Peters.”

With impeachment powers, the National Archives must now turn those emails over to House investigators. I can’t wait to see them.

Democrats are in denial, so far keeping a brave face on that this impeachment thing is just a lot of political smoke and no bribery fire. So let’s turn to the democrats’ clownish argument that there is “no evidence” Biden did anything wrong and the whole thing is a partisan witch hunt.

The Evidence

Democrats are claiming there’s no “evidence” Joe Biden did anything wrong. It’s a go-to argument for democrats (see, e.g., “no evidence” of election fraud), but it won’t work this time.

First of all, keep in mind that during the first Trump impeachment, the only “evidence” required by democrats was some highly-sketchy testimony from a sold-out partisan witness about something Trump said on the phone that, if you twisted it just the right way, could possibly be interpreted as being improper political pressure for partisan purposes. In other words, “quid pro quo!”

Ironically, the call fueling Trump’s first impeachment discussed the exact same Biden corruption in Ukraine that is now driving Biden’s own impeachment investigation (from Epoch Times):

It’s impossible to argue about evidence without first defining terms. So let’s start by defining what “evidence” is, under the law, since the legal standard is what applies to impeachment inquiries. Don’t let anyone gaslight you on the definition of “evidence.” Here’s how Black’s Law Dictionary, a recognized authority that can be cited in legal memoranda, defines “evidence:”

Something, including testimony, documents, and tangible objects, that tends to prove or disprove the existence of an alleged fact; anything presented to the senses and offered to prove the existence or nonexistence of a fact.

Here’s the screenshot in case you need to send it to someone.

In short, “evidence” is anything that tends to prove or disprove the existence of an alleged fact. That’s it. “Circumstantial evidence” is evidence. Granted, some types of evidence can be excluded under some circumstances, such as hearsay, but those things are still evidence. They’re just called “inadmissible evidence.”

The way democrats try to confuse people is they conflate the word “evidence” with “absolute proof.” When they say “there’s no evidence,” they actually just mean “you can’t prove it.” It’s an argument from ignorance. If you asked democrats, they wouldn’t agree that bank statements, for example, are evidence, even though bank statements are used as evidence every single day.

Democrats just want to argue about what the bank statements mean.

But no one needs to engage with that kind of argument. The decision about what evidence means is not up to democrats or anyone else, it is up to the legal fact finder: the judge, the jury, or the House of Representatives in this situation.

Here’s how Republican Representative Scott Perry responded to an Establishment Media reporter demanding “evidence” of high crimes and misdemeanors. Note that the reporter pretended not to understand what “evidence” means. Perry described a bunch of evidence. Later, another representative cited the lack of prosecution of Hunter Biden for his obvious FARA violations, which is also “evidence.” Here’s the clip:

From comments to the various impeachment-related Twitter posts, it’s obvious that a common democrat talking point is “there might be evidence to impeach Hunter, but he’s not the president!” The implication being that Republicans might be able to prove Hunter committed some crimes, but can’t link Hunter to Joe.

That’s a rubbish argument, and here’s why.

If a politician does a “favor” for a crime boss, and the crime boss pays the politician’s wife, it’s still bribery. If the crime boss pays the politician’s crackhead son on account of the favor, it’s still bribery. So, evidence that Joe Biden did a favor for a shady Ukrainian oligarch who was paying Hunter millions — for doing nothing — is also evidence that Joe Biden was bribed.

It’s up to the judge or jury to evaluate (“weigh”) all the admitted evidence and decide whether it’s more likely that Biden took a bribe or whether it was all just a fabulous coincidence. In the case of impeachment, the “jury” is ultimately the full House of Representatives.

Apart from Biden’s Bribery, what about Hunter’s Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) violations? Isn’t that just Hunter’s business? What does that have to do with President Peters?

White House Calls On Media To Help Fight Against Biden Impeachment Inquiry

The White House has put together a “war room” composed of a couple dozen lawyers, legislative aides, and communications staffers to combat the GOP-led investigations. And Democrats in Congress quickly rallied behind the president after the impeachment inquiry got announced.

At a news conference, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) declared “there is not a shred of evidence that President Joe Biden has engaged in wrongdoing.” He also said Democrats “will defend President Biden until the very end.”

Some in the media appear to be already embracing the idea that Republicans lack evidence warranting an impeachment inquiry. The New York Times, for instance, said, “Republicans have found no evidence of financial wrongdoing or corruption by the president, but said they have received enough information to warrant more investigation.”

This is all just to drum up excitement from constituents. Nothing will come of it. It’ll die just like everything else republicans in DC do. They have no commitment like the democrats do. They lay down as soon as they are demonized by the left and their media puppets.
