While it is hard to expect much good to come out of a Speaker of the House that the Establishment Republicans were willing to vote for, Speaker Johnson does have some promising qualities. For one, he’s a faithful Christian who’s not afraid to speak publically about his faith. Further, he’s focused on the tidal wave of migration flowing across the southern border and is a longtime critic of illegal immigration. Turns out, he’s also in support of the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.
Now-Speaker Johnson’s support of the impeachment inquiry into Biden was most clearly articulated in a September speech, given when he was still a mostly unknown Congressman, in which he explained the reasons for the inquiry and mocked those going ballistic about it.
He said, “There are three irrefutable facts that have taken us to this point: Number one, President Biden lied directly to the American people. Number two, President Biden’s family and their associates profited millions through shell companies. Number three, President Biden’s federal agencies are stonewalling our legitimate congressional inquiry.”
Continuing, emphasizing the scope of the Biden family’s alleged misdeeds, he said, “There are so many scandals; there’s so much corruption that’s been uncovered. Every stone that we overturn leads to more and more corruption. And because of that, Mr. Speaker, a lot of the American people are simply getting lost in the barrage of evidence, in the barrage of allegations of corruption and the evidence itself.”
Then, deriding the mainstream media’s response to the inquiry, Rep. Johnson said, “And as expected, the D.C. and the national press corps have blindly accepted the White House’s spin, and they’re trying to convince the American people that our inquiry, even the impeachment inquiry, is illegitimate.”
Giving some examples of the woke media’s breathless, ludicrous reporting, he said, “From CNN, ‘The most predictable impeachment investigation in American history.’ From Reuters, ‘McCarthy opens Long Shot impeachment probe of Biden.’ From MSNBC, ‘McCarthy’s Biden impeachment inquiry is the Benghazi investigation on steroids.’ These headlines are going to increase. We know what’s coming.”
And, emphasizing on whose side those people stand, Rep. Johnson went on to add, “We know that they’re working against us, against the American people, in this case, and for the White House. They’re on their [White House] team.“
Watch him here:
More recently, now-Speaker Johnson highlighted Rep. Comer’s discovery of a $200,000 check from Biden’s brother James to Joe Biden, saying, “.@JoeBiden received $200k payment from his brother James— Hunter Biden’s business partner. My friend @RepJamesComer is taking the next steps for us to hold the President accountable for his influence peddling scheme. No one should get away with this— especially a President.”

Comer, for his part, said, “A document that we’re releasing today raises new questions about how President Biden personally benefited from his family’s shady influence peddling of his name and their access to him. Bank records obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability have revealed a $200,000 direct payment from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden in the form of a personal check.
