It is expected that Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will open an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s alleged involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals. McCarthy made the announcement citing an alleged culture of corruption, citing “bank records that show more than $20 million flowed from China, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia and Ukraine to the Biden family and its associates,” and an unproven claim that the President and Hunter Biden took bribes from a Ukrainian gas company. McCarthy has instructed the House committee to open a formal inquiry into the President and gave a preview of their case by alleging abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption.
In response to the impeachment inquiry, the White House is ordering some of the country’s most prominent news organizations, including CNN, the New York Times, Fox News, the Associated Press and CBS News, to “ramp up their scrutiny” of House Republicans.
CNN strangely published a draft letter from the White House Counsel’s Office.
The White House plans to send a letter to top US news executives on Wednesday, urging them to intensify their scrutiny of House Republicans after Speaker Kevin McCarthy launched an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, despite having found no evidence of a crime.
“It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies,” Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s Office, wrote in the letter, according to a draft copy obtained by CNN.
It is very strange that CNN would report that the Biden administration is demanding new organizations help him.
Additionally, mainstream media journalists have responded to the White House’s letter with disapproval. Matthew Keys, a journalist, tweeted that “the White House should not be encouraging, influencing or interfering in the editorial strategies of America’s newsrooms.” The White House’s request reflects their lack of confidence in the news media, and the letter can be perceived as an effort to encourage a bias in the coverage.
There is a strange narrative change happening in the media’s attitude toward Biden.
For example, CNN debunked the President’s speech on 9/11 and previous embellishments:

Then, this was published by the Washington Post:
“I don’t think Biden and Harris should run for reelection. It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished … But I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement—which was stopping Trump.”

We are getting really close to an admission that Joe Biden was in business with Hunter because the best excuse advocates have for the President is that it was all about love.

Rep. Scott Perry that really put the scandal in perspective.
Scott Perry breathes fire at a “reporter”:
“The homes that the Bidens own can’t be afforded on a Senate salary. You understand that it’s not normal for family members to receive millions of dollars from overseas interests. That’s not normal.” pic.twitter.com/i47215cXez
