Blue dogs roll over: Impeachment inquiry formalized but Rep. Peltola, Democrats stay loyal to Biden

Alaska Rep. Mary Pelota voted in lockstep with her Democrat House colleagues to try to block a formal impeachment investigation into the corrupt history of President Joe Biden.

The U.S. House formalized the impeachment inquiry on a vote of 221-212, along party lines.

“We’re very pleased with the vote today. I think that’s it a message loud and clear to the White House. We expect you to comply,” House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer said. He is leading one of the more interesting investigations.

“We are now at a pivotal moment in our investigation. We will soon depose and interview several members of the Biden family and their associates about these influence-peddling schemes. But we are facing obstruction from the White House,” Comer said. “The White House is seeking to block key testimony from current and former White House staff. It is also withholding thousands of records from Joe Biden’s time as vice president. President Biden must be held accountable for his lies, corruption, and obstruction. We have a duty to provide the accountability and transparency that Americans demand and deserve.”

Although an inquiry has been going on for several months, and there have been several committees investigating the president, this was the first official vote, taken in response to the White House, which has said that any requests for documents were invalid since there had been no floor vote.

Some of the documents wanted by committee members may relate to President Biden acting on Ukrainian matters with the goal of benefiting his son Hunter Biden, who was on the board of Burisma, a major Ukraine energy company.

Also on Wednesday, the president’s son, Hunter Biden, defied a subpoena to appear before the House for a deposition. Hunter Biden is also currently under indictment for tax fraud and firearm-and-drug-related charges.

On the House floor, Comer implored members to vote for the impeachment proceedings. He said that President Biden has repeatedly lied to the American people about his family’s corrupt influence-peddling schemes.

Biden lied when he told Americans he had never spoken to his son about his family’s business dealings, and claimed there was an “absolute wall” between his official government duties as the vice president and his family, Comer said.

“He said his family never made money from China. All of these are blatant lies. Our investigation has revealed how Joe Biden knew of, participated in, and benefited from his family cashing in on the Biden name around the world. Since January, we have learned some of the following: The Bidens created 20 shell companies – most of which were created when Joe Biden was Vice President. The Bidens and their associates then raked in over $24 million through these shell companies from China, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Romania between 2014-2019. At least ten members of the Biden family benefited or participated in these schemes. The Bidens layered these payments through their bank accounts to hide the sources of the money. The banks even flagged many of these transactions in more than 150 suspicious activity reports to the Treasury Department,” Comer said.

“One bank investigator was so concerned about Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with the Chinese company that he wanted to re-evaluate the bank’s relationship with him.  He noted that his transactions served ‘no current business purpose.’ According to Devon Archer, a Biden family associate, Joe Biden was THE BRAND of the business. The BRAND showed up. Joe Biden spoke to his son’s associates by speakerphone over 20 times, dined with foreign oligarchs and a Burisma executive, and had coffee with his son’s Chinese associate – all when he was Vice President,” Comer said.

“Weeks after Joe Biden left the vice presidency, money from this CCP-linked entity began to make its way to the bank accounts of several Biden family members. Based on one Biden associate’s interview with the FBI, these payments were sent to the Bidens as a ‘thank you.’ Ask any Justice Department public corruption investigator about the importance of payments received after one leaves public office. It’s a hallmark of corruption,” Comer said.

  1. Bidden needs to go! Everything he’s doing is off base. He doesn’t know up from down. He needs to go. His son is also off base. We need new people. People who know what they’re doing and follow through with what needs to be done. We need people will stay on target and finally get things done. No more BS!!!
    There’s work to be done.

    • Biden isn’t going to be removed. The votes aren’t there.

      The best hope is so much comes out the Democrats have to tell him to drop out of the race.

    • Not a Biden fan, but the stock market hit an all time high today. Also, American oil production hit the all time high this week. Looks like interest rate reductions are coming as well. Not what you’d hear on some news outlets.

      • American oil production would be several million barrels higher if Biden’s restrictions were removed. This would allow us to be energy independent. Only Russia and Iran have benefitted from limiting our production. The American consumer is paying the price.

    • Justin, not a fan of Trump, but… can you actually point to one instance where he ca$hed a Chi- Com check?

      One wonders where Biden would be if he received even half of the scrutiny that Trump has.

  2. The left was warned and warned again, going after Trump for spurious reasons would bite them where they sat.

    Repeatedly. But they did it anyway.

    And now they are butt hurt when on the receiving end of a peeing contest they started.

  3. A note to management: it would save everyone time if you stopped reporting on Mary every time she acts like a barking seal in a circus. It’s not news.
    She’s an excellent drone.

    Maybe save yourself carpal tunnel and only write when she actually thinks for herself.

    That would be news.

    • Ya know, I don’t often agree with what you post. But you’re spot on here. “Oh look, Peltola voted with her party,” also, “this just in, water is confirmed to be wet.”

    • Are you starting to sweat, RINO, as your corrupt and decaying globalist marionette is rightfully coming under more and more public scrutiny?

      I just hope that the rotting sack of potatoes lives long enough to be impeached, then imprisoned, if not executed for treason, as it more than deserves.

      • Jefferson. You’ve still got it old dog. Reports of your adventures to the distant galaxies of disinformation and hypocrisy are great fun to read. Thanks for the glimpse into the evidence free world of anger, hatred and anger.

        • Sanctos y Mentiras, your specious radical leftist gibberish is nothing but the screaming tantrum of an entitled and spoiled child, and has no more impact on me, or probably on anyone else here, than the random wailings of an ill-behaved infant in the grocery store.

          Now, go have your diaper changed.

  4. Give the left this. They don’t have a Liz Cheney to skip across the aisle and toss their own man to the wolves.

  5. Grifters gonna grift, seems to be a leftist trait. Just ask poor man Joe how he got his. Peltola is working hers now.

  6. ONCE AGAIN(!!!) … The current political system is “rigged” and we really have “no” representation in the US Congressional House of Representatives.

  7. The MAGA crowd will continue to scream corruption, yet they have no evidence. This is nothing more than the next round of the GOP Screaming Tantrums. Benghazi, Hillary’s Emails and now the Biden Crime Family. We don’t need no stinking evidence all we need is a bunch of talking points and the MAGA Crowd will eat it up. I sure this post will be censored by Ms. Dowling because she professes to love free speech it only is allowed if she agrees with it.

    • Benghazi- a complete failure of leadership. Hilary’s emails – numerous felonies according to Comey. Biden – lots of evidence and eyewitness testimony so far with much more to come.

      • Dan: “Biden – lots of evidence and eyewitness testimony so far with much more to come”. Gym Jordan’s hobby horse crusade is three years old. Even his star witnesses say there is no evidence. You sound like dooshbag Mike Lindell – lots of promises, no results.

  8. Peltola is looking to build a dynasty. We have a chance to shut that down, or we will live with it for a generation at least. She will continue to be a tool of the left, whether that is as a rep, senator, or a governor, if Alaskans don’t say otherwise next Nov.

  9. Let me see if I have this straight — Donald Trump didn’t show up to testify in court this week, and Rudy Giuliani didn’t show up to testify in court this week, but Hunter Biden showed up and asked for his testimony to be shown to the public, and MAGA is calling HIM a coward?

    • Sebastian,
      You need to get educated. Closed door deposition testimony is much tougher and allows deeper inquiry than open congressional testimony……which allows Joe Biden’s allies in the Democratic Party to interfere with the testimony and provide cover for him. This is all in the Congressional committees. Trump and Rudy are defending themselves in court cases. Big difference. Joe Biden wouldn’t dare allow Hunter to be in a closed door session in Committee. The idiot would be grilled about his corrupt daddy
      Go back to class, Sebastian

  10. Sanctos y Verdad: You have memorized the MSM lies very well! Now try using common sense and come to a different conclusion. The Dems did NOT have notes to convict Trump, either, and we all know it was nothing but a political impeachment. You reflect the two-tiered system of justice perfectly, but I doubt that the Deep State is going to offer you a job above being an internet Troll.
