“We’re now finding out that Donald Trump talked with, met privately with House leaders and told them that he wanted them to do this,” Sykes, founder of The Bulwark news site, said on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” on Tuesday.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday announced he was launching a Biden impeachment inquiry, following pressure from the hard-right contingent of his caucus.
“We’re about to go into a very, very messy month,” Sykes said. “This is going to be Kevin McCarthy’s month from hell. Unfortunately, he appears willing to drag the rest of the country with him.”
House Republicans have been investigating allegations of corruption against Biden in connection to his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. They have not produced any evidence of wrongdoing by the elder Biden.
