SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s all-Republican congressional delegation is reacting to calls for an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

According to reporting from the Deseret News, Sen. Mike Lee’s, R-Utah, statement commended the decision to call for the impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

But Utah’s senior senator also said “impeachment authority should not be taken lightly.

“The allegations of corruption are disturbing to all Americans and necessitate this course of action,” the Lee said in the statement. “The American people have a right to know the facts and deserve a comprehensive and thorough process to uncover them.”


On Tuesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-California, said he’d directed a committee to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The Associated Press reports that an investigation by the House of Representatives has found a “culture of corruption” amid the Biden family.

 The AP said President Biden dismissed talk of an impeachment inquiry and called it politically motivated.

While speaking to reporters, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, noted the importance of an impeachment inquiry but that it didn’t mean lawmakers would vote for an impeachment. 

Meanwhile, Rep. John Curtis, R-Utah, said he’ll monitor the events. But Curtis also said that, right now, he’s committed to legislating.
