(UnitedVoice.com) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on January 21, 2021, one day after his inauguration. Since then, she has filed at least one other time, and other Republicans have as well. The attempts to open an impeachment inquiry have all been brushed aside. However, the possibility is now gaining support.
On July 26, CNN’s Annie Grayer reported that she spoke to Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) about the possibility of an impeachment inquiry. The congressman has long opposed any such investigation. However, he said he has now changed his mind and believes there is “mounting” evidence that, if proven, could be “impeachable.” He supports an inquiry into a “charge of bribery.”
New: Rep. Tom McClintock, who has long been against impeachment, told me he now supports opening an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden "on the charge of bribery."
McClintock said evidence is "mounting" and if it can be proven "that is impeachable."

In a follow-up tweet, Grayer said the White House has denied the bribery accusations.
The accusations came after Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released an FBI document that is used when agents talk to a confidential human source who wants to make allegations. In this case, during former President Donald Trump’s administration, an informant alleged Joe Biden took a bribe when he was vice president during Barack Obama’s administration.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) recently sent a letter to Rep. James Comer (R-KY) pointing to a record from Trump’s first impeachment trial that directly contradicts the allegations made that Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky paid Biden a bribe. The CEO stated he never had any conversations with Biden.
According to POLITICO, more members of the GOP are now saying they want to launch an impeachment inquiry. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reportedly stated that he would support an investigation if lawmakers secured enough evidence to justify a probe. The speaker has not previously been on board with a potential inquiry. Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) said it was “meaningful” that McCarthy discussed the topic and “acknowledged that the evidence is mounting.”
Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) didn’t reject the idea either. He stated that the committees are working on their investigations and they would “go from there.”
