GOP Rep. Claims No ‘Specific Crime’ Found?

( – In a stunning comment that will create concern and anxiety among GOP supporters, Republican Nebraska Representative Don Bacon told NBC News that lawyers have not identified a “specific crime” in Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry.

Appearing on “Meet the Press” to discuss the GOP-led impeachment inquiry into Biden by the House Oversight Committee, NBC News host Kristen Welker questioned Bacon about a statement he made in December 2023.

Bacon, at the time, stated that Congress should drop the impeachment inquiry if no “high crime or misdemeanor” was found.

He stated, “Well right now the lawyers in the committee that I talk to say there’s not a specific crime and you need that for a high crime or misdemeanor. Now I think the investigation was — it merited an investigation, put the facts out, let the public look at it and make a determination.”

“I think it’s good to be transparent, especially [when] we’re [in] an election year — so let’s put the facts on the table. But when I talk to the lawyers on the committee staff they say, at this point, there’s not a specific crime that’s been committed,” Bacon replied.

In response to Bacon, Welker asked if it was time to drop the investigation of what he was saying.

However, Bacon hesitated by saying that he did not know if it was the time, but he believed the investigation was close to an end.

He also said that it was important for Americans to see that; indeed, there were $24 million dollars in foreign money that the Biden family amassed and all the hidden LLCs that such money was moved around in. However, he considered that it was not a high crime or misdemeanor.

In December 2023, House members approved an impeachment inquiry that Republican North Dakota Representative Kelly Armstrong introduced into Biden over his alleged involvement in his family’s foreign business dealings.

The House Committee so far has heard testimony from Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his former business partners Tony Bobulinski and Jason Galanis.

While Biden has since denied the claims brought forward, Republican Kentucky Representative James Comer, who is leading the inquiry, stated in September 2023 that there is a “mountain of evidence” that revealed that Biden allegedly “abused his public office for his family’s financial gain.”
