White House Counsel Ed Siskel delivered a scathing letter on Friday to House Republicans demanding that they end the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

In the letter addressed to House Speaker Mike Johnson, Siskel outlined all of the reasons that the White House believed that the impeachment inquiry should be ended, calling the investigation a “divisive political sideshow” and arguing that even a few Republicans agreed that nothing truly impeachable had been discovered thus far.

“For over a year, House Republicans have been investigating President Biden in an effort to find something — anything — to hurt the President politically,” Siskel wrote, adding, “Instead, the investigation has continually turned up evidence that, in fact, the President did nothing wrong.”

Siskel then proceeded to list a series of 12 witnesses — among them Hunter Biden and James Biden — who had claimed when interviewed that Biden had not done anything wrong, along with a number of experts and mainstream media outlets (CNN, NBC, and The Washington Post) that had all come to the same conclusion the White House had: that “no evidence” of wrongdoing had been uncovered.

The White House counsel then pivoted to attack the sources of some of the allegations against the Biden family, citing alleged ties to Russia as well. “This impeachment inquiry in large part has been based on allegations made by troubling sources, as recent developments have made clear. In February, the source of a bribery allegation that the Majority spent much of 2023 promoting was criminally charged for making it up. Prosecutors even said he had been in contact with Russian intelligence.”

Siskel concluded by attacking Republican plans to reinterview key witnesses, complaining that it was “abusive,” and again demanded an end to the impeachment.


“This is just the latest abusive tactic in this investigation. It has targeted the President’s children, grandchildren, siblings, and in-laws for no reason. It has intruded into private citizens’ personal records on everything from medical visits to birthday presents. Enough is enough,” Siskel wrote. “It is obviously time to move on, Mr. Speaker. This impeachment is over. There is too much important work to be done for the American people to continue wasting time on this charade.”
