When host of Sunday Morning Futures, Maria Bartiromo, asked House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) whether he had the votes for a Biden impeachment inquiry, he didn't say yes, but he didn't say no either.

“Well, we have been out on summer recess right now working in the district. When we go back, we will discuss this. But we find new information each week," he said, citing whistleblowers and information that shows the Bidens lied repeatedly about their business activities and the involvement of their patriarch, President Joe Biden.

"Each step we take contradicts what the Bidens had said before. Could you imagine being a sitting vice president, and your family’s members set up 20 shell companies? They don’t — American companies don’t do that," he said.

“So there’s a lot of questions still," he continued. "And to be able to get the answers to these questions, you would need an impeachment inquiry to empower Congress, Republicans and Democrats, to be able to get the answers that the American people deserve to know."

McCarthy said that Democrats, presumably lawmakers, have told him directly that they fear impeachment.

"I have had Democrats now tell me they’re very concerned because they back this president based upon what he told America. And with each turn, we find that is not true,” he said.
