Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz is urging the House to initiate an investigation into the impeachment of President Biden based on allegations surrounding Hunter Biden.
This comes after an IRS whistleblower, who was involved in the Hunter Biden probe, testified before Congress, stating that Hunter Biden had used his father’s influence to pressure a Chinese business partner via WhatsApp.
The whistleblower claimed that Hunter Biden had mentioned his father’s presence during business dealings.
When asked about the potential for impeachment efforts by Republicans, Cruz responded that the issue was already pertinent.
He argued that the WhatsApp conversation provided direct evidence of Joe Biden misusing his governmental power to benefit his son and potentially himself.
Cruz emphasized the need for the House to investigate the matter, while also highlighting the IRS whistleblower’s allegations that the Department of Justice, under Merrick Garland, hindered investigations into the message.
Merrick Garland has refuted any claims of interference in the Hunter Biden probe. Cruz made these remarks during a recent episode of his podcast, titled “Verdict with Ted Cruz.”
The allegations discussed by Cruz stem from an IRS whistleblower’s revelations, released by House Republicans, detailing efforts to impede investigations into Joe Biden during the 2020 campaign and his presidency.
Gary Shapley Jr., the whistleblower who supervised the IRS probe into Hunter Biden, disclosed the existence of a WhatsApp message dated July 30, 2017, sent by Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, the CEO of Harvest Fund Management. In the message, Hunter Biden purportedly mentioned being with his father and invoked his name to exert pressure on Zhao to fulfill a commitment.
“And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
“I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,” Hunter Biden reportedly said.
“This WhatsApp directly ties Joe Biden to the millions of dollars coming from communist China,” Cruz said. “Now, it is possible Hunter Biden was lying, it’s possible Joe Biden wasn’t next to him. It’s possible Joe Biden was not going to inflict official damage on the Chinese if they didn’t pay him and his son millions of dollars. That’s possible, but you know what, we don’t know if it’s true or not. Why? Because, according to the whistleblower, they didn’t investigate, and they were prohibited from investigating. They were prevented from even asking the question.”

“Let me be clear: This, on the face of it, is obstruction of justice,” he said. “And if Merrick Garland issued that order, he is the one blocking the investigation, and I think there’s real evidence of Merrick Garland being guilty of obstruction of justice.”
Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a senator since 2013, expressed his frustration over the lack of attention given to the matter by Democrats.
He emphasized that if there were Democrats who truly valued the rule of law, there would be an immediate hearing with Merrick Garland, the Department of Justice (DOJ) head, to address the issues surrounding the WhatsApp conversation.
Cruz stated that they would demand to review all relevant documents, emails, and communications between the DOJ and investigators. He further asserted the importance of having IRS whistleblowers testify under oath. Cruz believed that this approach would hold Garland accountable for the situation.
However, Cruz acknowledged that the chances of the Senate Judiciary Committee taking such action were nonexistent due to the indifference of Chairman Dick Durbin and other Senate Democrats. He noted that the only hope for a thorough investigation lay with the House of Representatives, as they demonstrated more interest in pursuing the matter.
