The first impeachment hearings in the Republican investigation into President Joe Biden are scheduled for Thursday, September 28.
A spokesperson for the House Oversight Committee said the hearing was expected to “focus on the constitutional and legal issues surrounding the president’s involvement in corruption and abuse of office,” according to Spectrum News.
The spokesperson added that lawmakers plan to subpoena the personal and business banking records of Mr. Biden, his brother James Biden and the president’s son Hunter Biden “as early as this week.”
The hearing comes amid the House GOP’s ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer of Kentucky said the hearing would examine existing evidence, according to Axios.
“We will release the details hopefully by the end of the day or early tomorrow morning,” he said Tuesday.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy launched an impeachment inquiry without a House vote on September 12, a tactic he had previously criticized then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi for employing during the impeachment proceedings against former President Donald Trump.

The Biden White House criticized the investigation and pushed the media to look into the Republicans’ claims.
