In a recent episode of his podcast, Senator Ted Cruz called for the initiation of an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden based on the revelations of IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley regarding Hunter Biden’s alleged influence peddling and the Justice Department’s alleged cover-up of the Bidens’ misconduct. Cruz specifically pointed to a WhatsApp text message, made public by Shapley, in which Hunter Biden purportedly invoked his father’s name to secure a significant sum of money from a Chinese counterpart.
The message, sent on July 30, 2017, reads, “I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.” Shortly after sending the threatening message, Hunter Biden’s firm, Hudson West III, reportedly received $5.1 million from Chinese associates.
The IRS whistleblower further alleged that US Attorney General Merrick Garland hindered any investigation into this controversial message. A recent report by the Washington Free Beacon suggested that Hunter Biden wrote the text while at his father’s residence in Delaware, with photographs from Hunter’s laptop placing him at Joe Biden’s 1967 Corvette Stingray on the exact date and time the message was sent.
Senator Cruz asserted that the WhatsApp message provides direct evidence of Joe Biden abusing his government power to benefit his son and potentially himself. Cruz emphasized the need for the House to investigate the matter, expressing astonishment at the IRS whistleblower’s claim that Merrick Garland prevented any examination of the text message.
Cruz’s call for President Biden’s impeachment aligns with other Republican lawmakers’ initiatives targeting the president. Representative Lauren Boebert introduced articles of impeachment of President Biden on June 14, focusing on Biden’s alleged failure to secure the southern border. Similarly, Representative Andy Ogles proposed impeaching President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris due to concerns surrounding the ongoing border crisis and accusations of “weaponizing the executive office” to protect family business interests. Additionally, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a resolution for impeachment of President Biden in May, accusing Biden of abusing his power and jeopardizing national security.
This week, the House passed a resolution, along party lines, directing the House Homeland Security and House Judiciary committees to investigate the president’s immigration policies and potential wrongdoing.
As the controversy surrounding the Hunter Biden text message scandal unfolds, it remains to be seen how these calls for impeachment will impact the political landscape and the Biden administration’s ability to advance its agenda.
