Speaker Johnson 'looking at' Hunter subpoena as House marches forward with Biden impeachment probe

Posted 31 days ago


Newly-appointed House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., signaled a promising future for the impeachment inquiry into President Biden on Sunday, nodding to what he called House Republicans' "constitutional responsibility" to follow the truth where it leads.

"We're the rule of law team. We don't use this for political partisan games like the Democrats have done and did against Donald Trump twice. We are going to follow the law and follow the Constitution, and I think we have a suspicion of where that may lead, but we're going to let the evidence speak for itself," he told FOX News' Maria Bartiromo.

"I look forward to rolling that out over the coming days and weeks and letting the American people see exactly why we're taking the next steps and where it's headed."

Responding to whether House Republicans plan to subpoena Hunter Biden during the investigation, Johnson said he is looking at the option, but a decision hasn't been made just yet.

Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Bartiromo in September that the president's son would be subpoenaed, but only when the time is right.

"The one thing the American public has to understand is there's a strategy behind everything. We only follow facts. Hunter Biden will get subpoenaed, but when's the appropriate time? Do you do it because television wants it, or do you do it around the facts and the timing?" he said at the time.

McCarthy specifically stated that bank records would be needed in order to know which questions to ask Hunter, adding, "To just subpoena Hunter Biden because you want to fundraise, or you want to do something… that's not how we're going to run an investigation."... (Read more)
