US House of Representatives Approves Impeachment Inquiry into President Joe Biden. How Will It Impact His Re-Election Chances?
  • 4 months ago
The US House of Representatives voted to formally authorize an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden on Wednesday, giving investigating committees more power to subpoena documents and testimony. Republicans launching the inquiry allege Biden benefited from his family's foreign business dealings, although they have not produced evidence of wrongdoing. If the inquiry leads to impeachment in the House and trial in the Senate, it could damage Biden politically during the 2024 election campaign, even if the Senate does not vote to convict. Some Republicans have expressed concern that frequent impeachment proceedings could diminish the seriousness of the process, while others see it as a way to draw attention from legal issues facing Donald Trump.
