The mainstream media has been allegedly working overtime in the wake of House Republican’s impeachment probe against Joe Biden. Numerous pundits, seemingly to protect Democrats, have suggested there is little justification for the investigation. This comes after Democrats impeached former President Trump over a phone call.
A reporter questioned House Speaker McCarthy about the news. Associated Press’s Farnoush Amiri wrote an article claiming that Republicans launched this probe “without evidence.” The reporter seemed to be making a direct challenge to the inquiry, despite months of Republican investigations. Speaker McCarthy confronted the reporter and quickly set the record straight.
From The Post Millennial:
Associated Press reporter Farnoush Amiri had written a report stating that the investigation was launched “without evidence” and Speaker McCarthy was able to force the congressional reporter to admit the House had established enough evidence to support the inquiry.
While listing off a slew of evidence, McCarthy questioned Amiri on whether or not she believes that House has obtained enough evidence against President Biden…
Amiri indirectly confirmed the House has enough evidence by responding to McCarthy saying, “That’s what the testimony said.”
House Speaker McCarthy listed the various pieces of evidence Republicans have uncovered and cited frequently before the country. He explained the role of an impeachment inquiry is to “get answers.” He even asked Amiri if she had “any concerns.” And she appeared to answer “Yes.”
He went on to mention the calls Hunter Biden had with his father while meeting with his business associates. These calls were revealed by a close, former partner of Hunter’s, given under sworn testimony. Again, Amiri admitted that this was true, based on the testimony.
McCarthy confronted the reporter with evidence that had been circulating for weeks if not months and years. Republicans have accused Joe Biden of lying to the American public about his relationship with Hunter–and his involvement in his business dealings.
Republicans and some conservative pundits have discussed evidence that Biden and his son might have been engaged in bribery–something that must require investigation regardless of political affiliation.
But, while the media is willing to acknowledge possible wrongdoing by Trump and other Republicans, they seem resistant–even hostile–when allegations are brought against Joe Biden. Amiri asked McCarthy if lying is an “impeachable offense.” She did not address the other impeachable actions McCarthy listed.
The Speaker explained that an inquiry is about getting answers to questions. It seems the media does not even want Republicans to find out answers about the Biden family’s actions.
- Speaker McCarthy pushed back against media claims that Republicans have “no evidence” against Joe Biden.
- McCarthy challenged a reporter, listing some of the evidence uncovered against the Bidens.
- It appears the mainstream media is defending Joe Biden, casting doubt on testimony, documents, and other evidence.
