 House panel votes to send Biden impeachment inquiry to floor: ‘No choice’

The House Rules Committee voted Tuesday to send a resolution to the full House to authorize an impeachment inquiry into President Biden, setting up a vote on the move Wednesday in the narrowly divided lower chamber.

The House panel voted 9-4 along party lines to advance the resolution, with every Democrat objecting to the measure.

The impeachment inquiry resolution is expected to be put to a floor vote Wednesday, two sources previously told The Post.

“We are here to assert a process, not an outcome,” Rules Committee Chairman Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said in his opening remarks, adding that Republicans were merely following the “precedent” set by Democrats during the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump in 2019.

Cole said the resolution was merely “formalizing” efforts already underway in the House Ways and Means, Judiciary and Oversight Committees “to give the House the strongest legal standing to pursue needed information and enforce subpoenas.”
