GOP Witnesses Admit No Evidence Yet to Support Impeaching Biden

HeadlineSep 29, 2023

Despite the imminent government shutdown, the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee held its first hearing in its impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden on Thursday. The hearing did not go as planned, as the Republicans’ own witnesses, including forensic accountant Bruce Dubinsky and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, admitted there is no evidence Biden committed impeachable offenses.

Jonathan Turley: “I do not believe that the current evidence would support articles of impeachment.”

Bruce Dubinsky: “I am not here today to even suggest that there was corruption, fraud or any wrongdoing.”

Republican leaders have deemed staffers dealing with the impeachment inquiry to be essential workers, so they can keep working even if the government shuts down.
