House GOP Seeks Investigation Into Biden Blocking Israel Aid

House Republicans announced an investigation into the delayed shipment of aid to Israel by the Biden administration this week. The news also comes as at least one member of the House called for an impeachment probe into President Joe Biden.

Multiple members of the House Oversight Committee signed onto a letter to White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan requesting information regarding the delay.

“Given President Biden’s scheduled speech on Tuesday, May 8, 2024, to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, the White House Security Council reportedly chose to keep news of this decision to withhold vital military support out of the public’s attention until after his remarks,” said the letter.

“The Committee seeks a briefing, as well as documents and information related to this decision, including any legal justification for withholding essential supplies from Israel in its fight against Hamas terrorists who still have Israeli and American hostages,” it continued.

The letter said that the decision to “withhold essential military aid and hiding that decision from the public for political purposes disturbing, especially given that on President Biden’s first day in office, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pledged that the administration would, ‘bring transparency and truth back to government,’”

Rep. Cory Mills (R-FL) filed articles of impeachment against the president. Mills said that he did so as part of his “constitutional duty.” Mills accused the president of an “abuse of power.”

Mills’ resolution accused Biden of abuse “by soliciting a ‘quid pro quo’ with Israel while leveraging vital military aid for policy changes. This egregious action not only compromised the credibility of the United States but also undermined the interests of our longstanding ally, Israel.”

“Therefore, President Biden’s conduct warrants impeachment, trial, removal from office and disqualification from holding any future office under the United States,” it read.

Mills’ resolution mimics the first impeachment articles against former President Donald Trump. Democrats in Congress accused Trump of pressuring the Ukrainian government to turn over investigatory information regarding Biden’s son Hunter.

Trump was accused of withholding aid to the country prior to the 2022 Russian invasion, leading to the impeachment vote.
