Prior to the chaos that unfolded within the ranks of House Republicans regarding the speakership, an impeachment inquiry had been launched to further investigate potential wrongdoing by President Joe Biden.
The speakership battle placed the inquiry in limbo, until recently when newly-elected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) assured Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that the investigation would continue under his watch, Breitbart reported.
Not only that, but Johnson insisted that the investigation would be pursued "very aggressively."
"Sir, what about the investigations into the potential Biden family influence peddling, potential bribery?" Bartiromo asked. "Are you going to allocate the financial resources and human capital needed to do an in-depth investigation? And will an impeachment inquiry turn into an official impeachment?"
Johnson held nothing back in his reply to Bartiromo, laying out plainly that House Republican are on the ball.
"Well, see, Maria, I worked on the committees of jurisdiction,” Johnson replied.
"And Judiciary is one of those. I think our chairmen have done an exceptional job. You have spoken to all of them, Jamie Comer and Jim Jordan and Jason Smith, on Oversight and Judiciary and Ways and Means. They continued those investigations even while we were going through the tumult of the speaker’s race. They were still working methodically through that. I’m encouraging that," he continued.
"I think we have a constitutional responsibility to follow this truth where it leads. We’re the rule of law team. We don’t use this for political, partisan games like the Democrats have done and did against Donald Trump twice."

In his reply, Johnson vowed that the American people would soon learn exactly how House Republicans are pursuing the matter and suggested that he has a feeling he knows where the evidence will likely lead.
"We are going to follow the law and follow the Constitution," Johnson continued.
"And I think we — you and I have a suspicion of where that may lead. But we’re going to let the evidence speak for itself. And I look forward to rolling that out over the coming days and weeks and letting the American people see exactly why we’re taking the next steps and where it’s headed."
The new speaker vowed to take aggressive action and maintain transparency with voters.
"We’re trying to move forward on some of this very aggressively. I think the American people are owed these answers. And I think our suspicions about all this, the evidence that we have gathered so far, as you know, is affirming what many of us feared may be the worst," he said.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
