Trump Campaign: He Is Prosecuted, So Biden Should Be, Too

Republicans' impeachment probe of President Biden is unraveling because of a lack of evidence, but the case could become the basis for federal investigations and prosecutions of the Biden family if Donald Trump wins re-election, Axios reports. Trump has vowed retribution against enemies if he wins in November. House Republicans have struggled to show Biden has done anything illegal, but people close to Trump are still plotting to use the Justice Department against Biden and his family. A Trump campaign source said "everything you have seen from the Biden DOJ," in terms of charges against Trump, "you can expect to see from the Trump DOJ."

House Republicans have alleged that Biden should be impeached because he illicitly benefitted from lucrative foreign deals arranged by his son Hunter. Despite their difficulty proving that, Trump has said he thinks Biden should be prosecuted anyway because Trump is being prosecuted now. "By weaponizing the DOJ against his Political Opponent, ME, Joe has opened a giant Pandora's Box," Trump posted on Truth Social. House Oversight Committee chair James Comer (R-KY) said in a fundraising email that "when President Trump returns to the White House, it's critical the new leadership at the DOJ have everything they need to prosecute the Biden Crime Family and deliver swift justice." House Republicans' investigation is unlikely to end in impeachment articles, but the GOP has used it to sling mud at the president and his family in the run-up to the election.
