Washington – The White House insisted yesterday that US President Joe Biden has done nothing wrong, after Republican lawmakers launched an impeachment investigation against him.

The 80-year-old Democratic president remained silent when journalists asked him about the issue, but his press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, attacked the investigation of his political adversaries.

“They have turned up with no evidence, none, that he has done anything wrong. “The president did nothing wrong…,” he said, noting that the “impeachment” attempt, which focuses on Biden’s son Hunter’s Ukrainian business dealings, is based on “baseless accusations.” “They themselves have said that there is no evidence. “This is a political trick,” he added.

Biden “will speak to the American people” about his priority, the economy, in a speech in the state of Maryland today, he concluded, without commenting on how the president himself reacted to the investigation. The probe comes as Biden faces poor poll numbers ahead of a likely rematch with former President Donald Trump in next year’s presidential election.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican Kevin McCarthy, bowed to intense pressure from the Trumpist right of his party and authorized the launch of an impeachment inquiry on Tuesday. Republican House members accuse Biden of having “lied” to the American people about her 53-year-old son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine and China while her father was Barack Obama’s vice president.

Hunter Biden, with a past of drug addiction, is currently under investigation by a Justice Department special prosecutor for possible tax evasion and is expected to be charged later this month on a firearms violation.
