Two days before the House Oversight Committee reported it would investigate President Joe Biden in a GOP-led impeachment inquiry, the White House fired warning shots at Republicans in the House.

Speaking through Ian Sams, spokesperson for the White House Counsel's Office, he condemned the timing of the announcement—only 48 hours before funds in government could dry up. He accused House Republicans of trying to shift focus from the governance challenges they are grappling with.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy launched the probe as he sought to appeal to extremist wings and avoid a government shutdown. This is contrary to his previous promise of conducting an impeachment vote against President Biden in full body unless there was evidence showing otherwise.

The focus of the House Oversight Committee will, therefore, be on the constitutional and legal aspects of the president's involvement in corruption and abuse of public office. The bank records of President Biden, his brother James Biden, and his son Hunter Biden are now set to be subpoenaed.

Oversight Committee Chair James Comer hinted that it would review available evidence gathered during the probe. Inasmuch as some Republican members have cast doubt on the evidence so far, he promised transparency and accountability from the Oversight Committee.

California Governor Gavin Newsom dismissed the inquiry as a "joke" and an overreach without hard proof against President Biden. He said that using family relations for commercial purposes, while not recommended, was not new to politics or any other business sector.

On a wider note, the impeachment probe shows America's persistent deep divide in politics and the endeavours involved in dealing with key issues while simultaneously avoiding unnecessary political distraction.
