The White House Begs the Media to Save Biden
The White House on Tuesday called on the media to help fight against the House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.
In a memo to news outlets, White House spokesperson Ian Sams wrote to editorial leadership at U.S. news organizations and insisted the time has come for the “media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.”
the memo also argues that House Republicans “haven’t been able to turn up any evidence of the President doing anything wrong” and lists some comments from GOP officials expressing skepticism about the impeachment endeavor.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced the impeachment inquiry against Biden on Tuesday, he said that Republicans have uncovered “serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct — a culture of corruption.”
McCarthy then outlined the various pieces of evidence GOP investigators have gathered over the past several months — including bank records and testimony — and announced a “special conference” with committee chairs on Thursday.
Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has been asked to lead the impeachment effort with the help of Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO).
The three GOP leaders made a statement that said they have “uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing President Joe Biden lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s influence peddling schemes.”
The White House has put together a war room that is composed of a couple dozen lawyers, legislative aides, and communications staffers to combat the GOP-led investigations.
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) declared “there is not a shred of evidence that President Joe Biden has engaged in wrongdoing.” He also said Democrats “will defend President Biden until the very end.”
