Tennessee Republican member of the House Oversight Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee Tim Burchett said Friday he suspects impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden will happen.

A former CIA official testified to the House Judiciary Committee that Biden campaign officials orchestrated a letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials casting doubt on the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020. Former Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morrell testified that then-senior Biden adviser and current Secretary of State Antony Blinked reached out to him and “triggered” the letter’s creation.

Burchett said the information shows “influence peddling by the White House and everyone associated with them.”

“Well, yeah, well, we all also have been talking about that police station now for upwards of a year, Congressman. And we’re going to keep a spotlight on it right here on this program, that’s for sure. By the way, you just said, if this all leads to Joe Biden, how can you not impeach him? Are you expecting that there will be moves to impeach Joe Biden?” host Maria Bartiromo asked. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Oversight Republicans Renew Demand For Hunter Biden’s Art Sale Records)

“I suspect that, ma’am,” Burchett said. “If this cover-up shows what’s going on, that we all assume is going on, and that the 51 folks were basically lied to and showed false documentation, how can you not? I mean, this is just going on too much. And like I said, the documentation that I’ve seen, I can’t comment on all of it, but what I can comment on is that it is bad and it is getting worse and it is showing illegal monies from Chinese communists flowing into this White House via Hunter Biden and his lawyers.”

“How could we not impeach Biden if this does in fact reach him?” he added.

Morrell also testified that the Biden campaign provided guidance on how to publicize the letter and admitted one of the goals in signing onto the letter was he wanted to help Biden beat former President Donald Trump.

“There were two intents. One intent was to share our concern with the American people that the Russians were playing on this issue; and, two, it was [to] help Vice President Biden.”
