45th President Donald Trump commented after the House voted Wednesday to formalize an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden on Wednesday, a move that could aid in legal power to investigate Biden’s and his family’s business dealings.

The chamber voted 221 to 212 in a party-line vote to approve a resolution authorizing the probe.

Republicans on the House Oversight, Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees have been trying to show for months that Joe Biden was enriched by his family’s foreign business dealings and accepted bribes.

GOP lawmakers have said that a vote to formally authorize the inquiry would give them leverage in court as they seek documents and witness testimony, including from Hunter Biden, who defied a subpoena to appear for a closed-door deposition on Wednesday.

The resolution to greenlight the investigation lays out the rules for public hearings and directs the committees to produce a public report with their findings. Another resolution gives the committee chairmen authority to seek judicial enforcement of their subpoenas with witnesses who refuse to testify. Without formalizing the probe, a judge could rule that the subpoenas fall outside of a committee’s purview, CBS News noted.

Responding to the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden, President Trump said Biden is “GUILTY AS HELL!”

Trump wrote on Truth Social:

I got Impeached TWICE, was found NOT GUILTY, TWICE, but the Democrats never gave me the benefit or luxury of an Impeachment INQUIRY.

Had they done so I never would have been Impeached They went straight to a Trial, before knowing anything about my complete and total innocence. WITCH HUNT! It was disgraceful. Biden is lucky to only have an Inquiry, and he’s GUILTY AS HELL!

House Speaker Mike Johnson of Louisiana said last week that voting to authorize the probe was a necessary step because of “stonewalling” from the White House.

After the vote, Speaker Johnson said, “As Chairmen Comer, Jordan and Smith have done all along, we will continue to follow the facts where they lead. The American people deserve answers. This impeachment inquiry will help us find them.”
