Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy presented a video to House Republicans, exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, showcasing a timeline of President Biden defending his family’s business dealings. Biden denied any wrongdoing; however, the video concludes with IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley claiming that the IRS investigation into Hunter Biden was hindered, potentially reaching President Biden himself.
Shapley, along with another whistleblower, is set to testify before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, asserting that the Justice Department interfered in the IRS investigation of Hunter Biden. This hearing represents the abundance of interconnected inquiries conducted by the Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways & Means committees, focusing on both Hunter Biden and James Biden, the Presidents brother.
House GOP leaders consider the video a crucial tool for updating and educating the broader House Republican conference about the status of the Biden family investigation. The investigation has been a key priority for Republicans since gaining the House majority last year.
Furthermore, Speaker McCarthy has maintained broad support from House Republicans concerning their suspicions of corruption within the Presidential family.
The video montage, spanning a duration of two minutes, showcases snippets from the 2020 presidential debates where President Biden asserts the ethical nature of his son’s overseas engagements. It is followed by a news anchor unveiling ongoing inquiries surrounding James and Hunter Biden.
In addition, the compilation also highlights apprehensions raised by U.S. financial institutions regarding transactions associated with Hunter and James Biden, along with a statement from the White House categorizing their business interactions as private affairs. President Biden has consistently emphasized his lack of involvement in his family’s international business connections but if true and President Biden in fact has been involved in his family’s overseas business connections, the consequences of jeopardizing U.S. National security and corruption would be meteorically larger then that of Nixon’s watergate scandal.
During the upcoming testimony, Shapley, a 14-year veteran of the IRS, is expected to testify that the Hunter Biden investigation he was previously part of in Delaware was obstructed by the Justice Department.
According to reports from Fox News, Shapley stated that there were attempts made by former U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was appointed during the Trump administration, to secure special counsel status, but these efforts were dismissed. Furthermore, Weiss was reportedly prohibited from filing charges in other jurisdictions. These allegations seem to challenge Attorney General Merrick Garland’s affirmations of Weiss’s impartiality, as conveyed in a letter addressed to Senator Lindsey Graham.
As the House Republicans present the video and prepare for the whistleblower testimony, the investigation into the Biden family continues to be a significant focus for the party, even amid other legislative challenges and divisions within the conference.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
