This comment was made amidst the unfolding scenario where House Republicans unveiled a resolution to authorize an inquiry into impeachment. This development coincided with the indictment of Biden’s son by special counsel David Weiss for tax evasion between 2016 and 2019.
Christie, who has thrown his hat in the ring for the presidential race, shared his thoughts with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. He believes that while there isn’t sufficient evidence to warrant impeachment, the House does play a vital role in oversight. The indictment has brought to light the reduction of Hunter Biden’s income from Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm, following Trump’s inauguration in 2017. Additionally, it’s been claimed by Republican Representative James Comer of Kentucky that Joe Biden received funds from an account Hunter used for transactions with China.
The former governor stressed the importance of transparency and thorough information dissemination about Biden’s actions. “Whether that’s done with the House Oversight Committee, or whether it’s done through an impeachment inquiry, I think what matters the most is that people get all the information they need, about the president’s conduct for Congress to prove — you know, have appropriate oversight, and for the public to make a judgment since Joe Biden has declared himself a candidate for reelection for 2024,” Christie suggested.
Further developments include the subpoena issued to Hunter Biden by the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, led by Republican Representatives James Comer of Kentucky and Jim Jordan of Ohio. They have warned of potential contempt of Congress proceedings if Biden fails to appear for his scheduled deposition on December 13.
The House Ways and Means Committee also released a report accusing the Department of Justice of giving preferential treatment to Hunter Biden. Republican Representative Nancy Mace from South Carolina highlighted the enormity of the payments made to the Biden family, which allegedly exceed $50 million.
“That information should be public, it should be transparent, the White House should fully cooperate with both the investigations being done by the Justice Department, and any oversight that happens from the House, because if the president has nothing to hide, he shouldn’t be hiding anything,” Christie added.
