Washington, DC—U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-06) voted ‘YES’ on House Resolution 918, a resolution authorizing the House Committees on Judiciary, Oversight and Accountability, and Ways and Means to continue their ongoing investigations into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach President Joe Biden.
On September 12, then-Speaker McCarthy announced the impeachment inquiry, following the precedent set by Democrats in 2019. The three Committees immediately got to work on gathering the facts.
Despite the fact that Republicans have followed the Democrats’ precedent set in the impeachment of President Trump in 2019, the Biden Administration has taken several actions to resist the House’s lawful investigation:
The Department of Justice refused to allow two attorneys to testify.
The White House sent Chairmen Comer and Jordan a letter refusing to allow former White House Counsel Dana Remus to testify on the grounds that the full House has not voted to establish the inquiry.
The attorney for a key witness has tried to dictate the terms of the lawful deposition subpoena issued by Chairmen Comer and Jordan. On December 1, the Chairmen pushed back against Hunter Biden’s demand for special treatment.
