House GOP to discuss Biden impeachment inquiry Thursday

WASHINGTON (NewsNation) — At the request of Speaker Kevin McCarthy, House Republicans will hold a conference meeting Thursday to discuss starting an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, a GOP leadership source confirmed to NewsNation.

McCarthy has been tiptoeing through a political minefield as he weighed whether to open an official impeachment inquiry into the president.

Former President Trump, with whom McCarthy has kept a good relationship, has also exerted public pressure to pursue impeachment without a long inquiry. So have voters in the GOP base, Republicans say.

But moderate members of McCarthy’s conference questioned whether there was enough evidence to launch an inquiry, and the chance that any impeachment effort could backfire politically.

McCarthy has repeatedly said that he will not pursue impeachment for “political purposes,” instead arguing that it is a “natural step forward” following a stream of information released by House GOP investigators over the summer about the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
