Trump Calls for Biden's Impeachment
Summary from AllSides News Team
On Sunday, former President Donald Trump said on Truth Social that House Republicans should move forward with an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.
The Details: Trump is accusing Biden of withholding aid to Ukraine, accepting bribes, and paying people off to protect his son Hunter, based on the House's continued investigations of Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings. Some House Republicans are eager to move forward and begin an impeachment inquiry. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hasn't outlined a timeline for the process, but has called an impeachment inquiry a "natural step forward."
Key Quote: "The Republicans in Congress, though well-meaning, keep talking about an Impeachment 'Inquiry' on Crooked Joe Biden. Look, the guy got bribed, he paid people off, and he wouldn't give One Billion Dollars to Ukraine unless they 'got rid of the Prosecutor'," Trump posted.
For Context: McCarthy is pushing for a short-term spending bill to keep the federal government open beyond September. This approach could ensure that investigations into Hunter Biden, which may develop into investigations of President Biden. However, the Democrat-controlled Senate is unlikely to remove Biden from office, even if the Republican-led House of Representatives votes to impeach him. Trump was impeached twice by the House during his presidency and was acquitted by the Senate both times.
How the Media Covered it: Sources across the political spectrum covered Trump's post, with some left-rated sources describing Trump's "flurry of messages."
