(PatriotWise.com) — South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham suggested that while the House has yet to produce a “smoking gun” linking President Biden to his family’s influence-peddling operation, the “narrative” presented by the White House and Hunter Biden is already “falling apart,” The Hill reported.
While appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Graham conceded that if the House had a “smoking gun,” the public would already know about it but insisted that the Biden camp’s “narrative” that the president “knew nothing” about his family’s foreign business deals “is falling apart.”
At the same time, the South Carolina Republican said he was more concerned about the conflict in the Middle East than he was about impeaching the president.
Graham admitted that he hasn’t been paying “much attention” to the House Republicans’ investigation into the Biden family and suggested that time would tell if the House can prove that Joe Biden “somehow financially benefited” from Hunter’s foreign business deals.
The House last Wednesday voted to authorize an impeachment inquiry into the president in a strictly party-line vote of 221 to 212.
Despite skepticism among some House Republicans that the investigation into the Biden family had failed to produce evidence of misconduct on the part of the president, every Republican member voted in favor of the inquiry.
In a joint statement following the vote, Speaker Mike Johnson, Majority Leader Steve Scalise, Majority Whip Tom Emmer, and Republican Conference Chair Elise Stafanik said while they would “not prejudge the investigation’s outcome,” the evidence compiled in the House’s nearly yearlong investigation was “impossible to ignore.”
In an exclusive interview with “Meet the Press” on December 10, outgoing Republican Senator Mitt Romney dismissed the House’s impeachment inquiry, telling host Kristen Welker that the House investigations have failed to produce any direct evidence that President Biden committed any high crimes or misdemeanors.
