House Speaker Kevin McCarthy appeared on Fox News last week, signaling an impeachment inquiry may be coming for President Biden. This follows a months-long trend, with various Republican lawmakers calling for accountability and further investigation into the President and his family’s business and foreign business dealings. Even as the GOP teases possible impeachment, the President will still have to work with Congress to approve a federal budget by the end of September or face a government shutdown. Fox News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram explains how Speaker McCarthy has tested the water for impeachment and what’s in jeopardy of being cut from federal spending as a government shutdown looms.
