House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) declared on Saturday in an interview with “Fox & Friends” that the impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden will proceed despite attempts to block the investigation of the Biden family.

“It’s become a necessary step,” Johnson said of the impeachment inquiry. “Elise and I both served on the impeachment defense team of Donald Trump twice when the Democrats used it for brazen, partisan political purposes.

“We decried that use of it. This is very different. Remember, we are the rule of law team. We have to do it very methodically,” Johnson added.

He alleged that the Department of Justice has prevented two to three witnesses from coming forward and has withheld thousands of pages of evidence, according to NBC News.

“So a formal impeachment inquiry vote on the floor will allow us to take it to the next necessary step. And I think it’s something we have to do at this juncture,” he continued.

“Republicans have spent months investigating Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings, hoping to find improprieties they could use as the basis for impeachment,” the Guardian reported.

“The full House has not yet voted to formally authorize an impeachment inquiry, as some Republicans have publicly expressed doubts about whether there is enough evidence to justify such action,” it continued.

On Friday, Republicans faced the ousting of Rep. George Santos from Congress upon the release of a report by the Ethics Committee. This will leave one less seat in Congress until a special election is held to fill the vacancy, potentially granting Democrats an additional spot if a conservative candidate does not win in that district.

Despite this setback, Johnson remains confident that there are enough votes for Biden’s impeachment inquiry to move forward soon and become official.
