More political turmoil in Washington, D.C., as Republicans order an impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Biden.  

Republicans have ramped up their pressure on President Joe Biden and the fallout could impact his chances of winning re-election.  

On Tuesday, Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, announced an impeachment inquiry into Biden. He did so unilaterally without having a vote in the House.  

McCarthy wants three Congressional committees to investigate Biden and his family for evidence of financial wrongdoing or corruption.  

Joining the discussion: 

  • Niambi Carter is an associate professor in the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland.  
  • Arthur Estopinan is president of the Estopinan Group. 
  • Jacquie Luqman is the co-host of “By Any Means Necessary” on Radio Sputnik.
  • Aaron Mate is the host of “Pushback with Aaron Mate” on the Grayzone.
