Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) mocked a reporter on Tuesday who asked him for his reaction to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announcing an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden over allegations of corruption.
NBC's Liz Brown-Kaiser asked Fetterman in the basement of the U.S. Capitol about the impeachment inquiry and, before she could finish asking the question, Fetterman jolted backward and threw his hands up around his head.
"Oh my God, really?!?!"
Fetterman mockingly responded to the reporter. "Oh my gosh."
"You know, oh, it's devastating,"
Fetterman continued as he proceeded to burst out laughing at the reporter.
"Ooooooooo! Don't do it!"
Fetterman said to the reporter while making a motion with his hands. "Please, don't do it! Oh, no! Oh, no!"
Fetterman was quickly led away by one of his aides, who broke up the interaction between the senator and the reporter.
In brief remarks at the U.S. Capitol, McCarthy said the impeachment inquiry will be led by Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) "in coordination with"
Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO).
In a letter to Republican members, McCarthy said that the House's investigation so far has "found that President Biden lied to the American people about knowledge of his family's foreign business dealings."
Eyewitness testimony revealed that the President joined multiple phone calls and had various interactions with his son's business partners. For example, Devon Archer, Hunter Biden's business partner, testified that Joe Biden spoke or met with Hunter Biden's business associates around 20 times, and that after meeting with President Biden, foreign nationals sent Hunter Biden millions of dollars, and bought him a Porsche.
Bank records show that nearly $20 million in payments were directed to Biden family members and associates through numerous shell companies. The Treasury Department has more than 150 transactions involving the Biden family and their business associates that were flagged as "suspicious activity" by U.S. banks.
A trusted FBI informant provided information about alleged bribes to the Biden family.
There is also evidence that Biden used his official office to coordinate with Hunter Biden's business partner about Hunter's role in Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company.
Finally, despite these serious allegations, it appears that the President's family has been afforded special treatment by Biden's own administration - treatment they would not otherwise have received if they were not related to the President. For example, in July, there was the sweetheart plea deal that President Biden's Department of Justice tried to sneak past the public. Had a federal judge not rejected the deal, it would have gone through unnoticed.
