Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) held little back during a Freedom Caucus press conference on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Tuesday after Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.
“What actual evidence do you have as opposed to allegations to show to the American public that would merit an actual impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden and prove that today isn’t just about some of you [inaudible]?” asked an off-camera reporter.
The reporter suggested that McCarthy was enacting “political revenge for the impeachments of Donald Trump.”
“This isn’t about political revenge. We have the bank accounts we can see, ma’am,” Perry fired back. “You can see that the homes that the Bidens own can’t be afforded on a congressional or Senate salary. You also understand that it’s not normal for family members to receive millions of dollars from overseas interests. Those things aren’t normal.”
“That’s not normal to have 20 shell companies, these things are not normal,” he continued. “And it alludes to not only just widespread corruption, but money laundering, if not influence peddling itself and we also have the president, the vice president at the time, on record saying that the prosecutor was fired. ‘Well, son of a b***! The prosecutor was fired,’ right? Because the prosecutor was going after the company that his son was working on.”
“That’s what we have. If you can’t see that. If you want, if you are that blind, I’ll turn it over to the attorneys,” Perry concluded as he walked away from the podium.
The reporter claimed that “the American people can’t see that, they think it’s political revenge.”
“The American people can’t see that, they think it’s political revenge,” replied the reporter.
Perry rushed back and shouted at the reporter: “It’s because you don’t report on it!”
