The White House Criticizes Impeachment Inquiry as “Congressional Harassment” of President Biden
In a recent development, the White House has spoken out against the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, labeling it unconstitutional and a form of “Congressional harassment.” Seeking to put an end to what they consider unwarranted requests, the White House is urging GOP-led committees to withdraw subpoenas and interview demands targeting White House officials as well as Biden family members and associates.
The first instance of resistance came when House Oversight Chairman James Comer issued a subpoena to former White House counsel Dana Remus, intending to discuss allegations surrounding Biden’s supposed mishandling of classified documents. However, the White House chose not to comply with this request, prompting further pushback from the administration.
Richard Sauber, Special Counsel to the President, penned a letter to Comer and House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, asserting that an authorization vote by the House is a prerequisite for initiating an impeachment inquiry. Sauber urged the committee chairmen to withdraw the subpoenas and interview demands, arguing that Remus’ testimony pertains to an ongoing Special Counsel investigation.
Despite House Republicans’ concerted efforts to build momentum for a presidential impeachment inquiry, they have yet to present concrete evidence of any wrongdoing by President Biden. Committee chairmen are dedicating their attention to high-profile interviews and devising strategies for a final report, which may include criminal referrals and act as the foundation for potential impeachment articles.
Amidst this controversy, it remains uncertain whether Remus will comply with the subpoena request. The White House has accused the committee chairmen of misrepresenting the received documents and testimonies, alleging that their actions are politically motivated and amounted to harassment of the President.
As this story continues to unfold, it is important to note that additional updates may emerge, shedding further light on this complex and evolving situation.
