What are the House Republicans waiting for??
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo that Hunter Brandon will get subpoenaed at the right time.
McCarthy on Tuesday announced he is directing House committees to open an impeachment inquiry against Brandon.
“I am directing our House committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Brandon. Over the past several months, House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Brandon’s conduct—a culture of corruption,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy directed House Committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into Brandon several days ago yet all of ZERO subpoenas have been issued to Hunter Brandon.
Maria Bartiromo blasted McCarthy.
“What about the impeachment inquiry? Will you subpoena Hunter Brandon? I mean Don Jr. spent 20 hours – they didn’t have any evidence and yet they brought him in. They question him! How come you haven’t brought in Hunter Brandon?” Bartiromo asked McCarthy.
McCarthy punted to his fellow Republicans.
“I don’t subpoena anybody. I let the Committees–” he said. (Crosstalk) “Jim Jordan!”
“I let Committees do the work!” McCarthy said. “Hunter Brandon will get subpoenaed, but when’s the appropriate time?”
Maria Bartiromo pushed back on McCarthy and pointed out all of the evidence of Hunter Brandon’s influence-peddling scheme involving Brandon found on the ‘laptop from hell.’

Last Tuesday Rep. Matt Gaetz threatened to remove Speaker McCarthy for being out of compliance with the agreement that allowed him to assume his role.
“On this very floor in January, the whole world witnessed a historic contest for House Speaker,” Gaetz said in his opening remarks.
Under new House rules, it only takes one member of Congress, from either party, to bring a ‘motion to vacate’ which forces a vote on removing the Speaker of the House.
It would only take a simple majority vote to remove McCarthy. Gaetz this week floated recruiting Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell to help him remove McCarthy.
Rep. Gaetz lambasted McCarthy for not holding a vote on term limits, refusing to release the full January 6 tapes, insufficient accountability for the Brandon Crime Family and for advancing Brandon’s spending.
Gaetz continued, “If Democrats bail out McCarthy – I will lead the resistance to this uni-party and the Brandon/McCarthy/Jeffries government that they are attempting to build.”
Gaetz also expressed his anger over the fact that Hunter Brandon has not been subpoenaed yet.
On this very floor in January, the whole world witnessed a historic contest for House Speaker.
I rise today to serve notice. Mr. Speaker, you are out of compliance with the agreement that allowed you to assume this role. The path forward for the House of Representatives is to… pic.twitter.com/1IFsrmT8KK
