During a Sunday interview on Fox News, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) explained the next steps in the impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden — noting that House investigators are planning to interview “firsthand witnesses and whistleblowers.”
In the first hearing last week, House Republicans spoke with legal experts and constitutional experts about the basics of an impeachment inquiry and what actions could lead to an impeachment. Mace spoke during that hearing about the evidence against the president, while also calling out her Democrat colleagues for attempting to dismiss the evidence.

Mace, who sits on the House Oversight Committee, previewed the next stage of the investigation during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo.
“The first day of the inquiry was just to have experts in tax law [and] constitutional investigations to show a baseline of what is legal and what is illegal behavior,” she explained. “In the future, in our next hearings, we will have firsthand witnesses and whistleblowers coming through to show that direct evidence.”
Bartiromo then called out the Democrats for repeatedly claiming in their criticism of the impeachment inquiry “that there’s no direct line of money going directly to Joe Biden.”
Mace responded by noting that congressional investigators “know” that the president’s son, Hunter Biden, “complained that half of his salary went to his father. And we know that he only got these deals from China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania because of his father, because of his relationship and selling that access to Joe Biden.”
Bartiromo went on to question whether House lawmakers have been able to identify any “specific policy decisions” that Joe Biden made in exchange for the payments to his family business from foreign entities.
“I have not had the ability to research that,” Mace replied. “I have been looking more at the LLCs, the bank records, all of the lies that Joe Biden has told, and what evidence we have so far in meetings, dinners, appointments, White House records, et cetera, phone messages, text messages, e-mails, et cetera, connecting the dots with Joe Biden.”
Mace then spoke about the financial records of the Biden family and the evidence they may provide. While House Republicans have already obtained many of these records, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) announced at the conclusion of the first impeachment inquiry hearing that he plans to subpoena the bank records of Hunter Biden, the president’s brother James Biden and their affiliated companies.
“We have to connect the dots with the financial records, and then show what policy decisions were made,” Mace said.
Although Bartiromo argued that “it feels like the evidence at this point is overwhelming,” Mace noted that a thorough investigation was necessary before the actual impeachment of the president can happen.
“Well, I’m a due process person. I want to hear from every witness, every whistleblower,” the Republican congresswoman said. “I really want to hear from the bookkeeper, Maria, and what — how these records were hidden, how the money was laundered, and how Joe Biden got paid.”
