CBS News reported on Tuesday that Biden expects his family to be the subject of congressional investigations once Republicans retake the House.

Correspondent Robert Costa commented that Biden’s inner circle says he is planning to work with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) instead of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) even if he becomes Speaker of the House.

Costa made the revelation during CBS News’ election night 2022 coverage and restated it on Twitter. He told other panelists on the election team that he had received word on how Biden felt about the state of the midterm elections.

“Just been speaking to some people inside President Biden’s circle, some longtime confidants about how he’s seeing this moment tonight – potentially the Republicans taking the House,” he reported.

“They say that he believes that next year could be ‘brutal.’ He has no illusions about the House Republicans should they have the majority. They will come after his family, including probing his son, Hunter Biden,” Costa continued.

Biden evidently also fears impeachment.

“They’re going to maybe, possibly impeach members of his cabinet. He knows that, maybe even try to impeach him,” Costa stated.

The CBS reporter noted Biden’s spurning of McCarthy while stating he will work with more “moderate” Republicans.

He also said something interesting behind the scenes to a few of his friends in recent days: that if Republicans win the House and something like the debt limit comes up, he’s going to work through Senator McConnell, not Kevin McCarthy, should Kevin McCarthy become Speaker of the House,” Costa claimed.

“He has a longtime relationship with McConnell that could be the path to governing, Biden confidants tell CBS News tonight,” he added.

CBS Morning co-host Gayle King asked, “What does that say to you that he’s already thinking in those terms?”

“Well, he’s watching the returns and he’s hoping the Democrats do well, all the Democrats watching this tonight hope they still hold on in the House. But he’s also thinking ahead as President of the United States, his confidants say, about what governing could look like if it’s divided government and who could he lean on to cut a deal on something like the debt limit,” Costa responded.

“And to him, McConnell’s that person, not McCarthy,” he answered.

“If we lose the House and Senate, it’s going to be a horrible two years,” Biden told a small crowd gathered inside a hotel ballroom, where cameras weren’t allowed prior to the midterm elections, according to CNN. “The good news is I’ll have a veto pen.”

Although a “red wave” did not materialize for Republicans, final control of both chambers is still up for grabs as Americans wait to see what happens. It is widely expected Republicans will control the House but may not capture the Senate.
