McCarthy Threatens Impeachment Probe of Attorney General Over Hunter Biden

The GOP believes impropriety happened over his plea arrangement

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, is threatening an impeachment investigation of Attorney General Merrick Garland over the Justice Department's criminal probe of President Joe Biden's son, Hunter.

McCarthy tweeted on Sunday that U.S. Attorney David Weiss, the federal prosecutor appointed by Republican former president Donald Trump and overseeing the investigation, must answer questions about whistleblower allegations that the Justice Department intervened in the case to protect Biden's son.

"If the whistleblowers' allegations are true, this will be a significant part of a larger impeachment inquiry into Merrick Garland's weaponization of DOJ," McCarthy said, using the acronym for the Justice Department.
