House Republicans expect to hold their first hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Biden regarding allegations surrounding his son, Hunter Biden, next Thursday, September 28, Fox News reported Tuesday.
According to Fox News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Program, “Fox is told that [the] hearing won’t tread any new ground necessarily. It will simply be a review of the existing evidence and explain the status of the inquiry.”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced the impeachment inquiry a week ago, after House Republicans claimed without evidence that he and Hunter Biden had engaged in an influence-peddling scheme. The allegations echo those that former President Trump has made for years against the Biden family.
McCarthy directed House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY). House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) and House Ways & Means Chair Jason Smith (R-MO) to lead the investigation.
Comer is set to seek additional transcribed interview from Hunter Biden business associates, according to Fox News sources.
Sources further tell Fox that House GOP leaders hope to conclude the inquiry before the 2024 Presidential Primary season begins; the Republican Iowa caucuses are scheduled for January 15.
