Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Jim Banks (R-IN) turned up the volume Thursday on already loud calls to impeach President Joe Biden. This came after the explosive FD-1023 form was finally released.
The form, which was exposed by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), contained a detailed witness account of Biden when he was vice president allegedly taking part in an international bribery scheme.
Boebert added to her recent demand that the president face impeachment after seeing the descriptive contents of the statement. She tweeted a reminder that Republicans “promised to uncover Joe Biden’s corrupt business deals and that is EXACTLY what we have done!”
Meanwhile, Banks described the Bidens as the “most corrupt family” to ever occupy the White House. He further echoed Boebert’s proclamation that impeachment proceedings should begin.
The FBI forced Congress to wait on its release of the slightly redacted FD-1023 form. The bureau resisted the initial subpoena before finally allowing it to be released.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on Fox News’s “Hannity” and described the president’s involvement with son Hunter’s business dealings as “wrong and certainly suspicious.” He has reportedly not echoed Boebert’s and Banks’ call for impeachment.
Jordan did, however, promise that the investigation into the Democrat will continue.
As for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), he expressed his dissatisfaction with Boebert’s recent push to impeach Biden. Through technical procedures, her effort would force an impeachment vote.
The Colorado representative introduced articles of impeachment last month over Biden’s mishandling of the border crisis. By making her action a privileged resolution, it could have compelled a vote.
However, the articles were sent to the committee.
Multiple reports said the Speaker objected to the fast-tracking of the process without going through congressional committees. Many conservatives, however, are losing patience with repeated calls for action against the president that do not bear results.
But for McCarthy, there are dangers involved with going after Biden and the goal of holding on to the House majority. And his job.
Several sources quoted him as asking what kind of majority the GOP wanted to be. “Give it right back in two years or hold it for a decade and make real change?”
