Several prominent conservatives called for House Republicans to open an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden this week. The news following the fourth indictment of former President Trump and revelations regarding Biden’s son Hunter could indicate a shift in Republicans’ tactics.
According to a memo from the Conservative Action Project (CAP) received by Breitbart News, the Republican leaders state that investigations by various House committees “established without question that Joe Biden has been engaged in criminal misconduct for decades and that he lied to the American people about his son Hunter Biden’s criminal conduct and his own culpability and involvement in the Biden crime family business.”

The letter further cites “ongoing unlawful actions” by the Biden administration “to suppress the free speech rights of the American people,” and stated that there is a “special targeting of those who dare to espouse opinions and view the Biden White House doesn’t agree with.”
The memo was signed by a number of prominent conservatives, including former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R) and former United States Attorney General Edwin Meese. Blackwell serves as CAP’s chairman.
Blackwell cited his experience as the former ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, stating that he “saw how rulers in many foreign countries become filthy rich by accepting bribes.” He said that it “doesn’t take a rocket scientist” to see how the Biden family accumulated significant wealth.
“Many believe that it’s time for Congress to expose the real Joe Biden,” he said.
The conservatives’ memo also follows indications that Congressional leaders may also begin an impeachment inquiry. House Judiciary Chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that the House GOP had to organize “facts and get the documents, to get the information we need” before taking the next step toward an impeachment inquiry.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stated that the House Republicans may begin an impeachment inquiry.
McCarthy said that such an inquiry may be necessary in order to properly investigate Hunter Biden’s financial dealings. He said that such a move “allows Congress to get the information to be able to know the truth.”
