Three articles of impeachment against President Biden were introduced by Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH) for the mishandling of the deadly Afghan evacuation, creating the crisis at the southern border, and attempting to usurp the Supreme Court ruling to expand the federal moratorium on evictions.
The first article of impeachment concerns Biden’s violation of “his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President” regarding the southern border crisis.
“I take this seriously. I don’t think it’s haphazard. I’m not trying to get media attention for myself,” Gibbs told the Washington Examiner. “He’s done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary.”
The second article concerns disregarding the separation of powers by illegally attempting to extend the federal moratorium on evictions. “Despite the clear warning from the U.S. Supreme Court” and “with no legislative directive from the U.S. Congress,” Biden violated a fundamental principle of American republicanism, Gibbs wrote.
Gibbs explained, “He’s not capable of being commander-in-chief, and that’s obvious by the actions since Day One when he took the presidency back in January.”
The final article of impeachment argues Biden “failed to act responsibly as Commander in Chief with regard to the withdrawal of United States forces from Afghanistan.”
“At some point, they’re gonna be held accountable for their actions, and this is kind of putting them on notice,” he told the publication. “Maybe something like this makes the White House think twice before they do some of this nonsense.”
“Obviously, it’s not going to go anywhere with Speaker Pelosi,” Gibbs continued. “It shows that there are some Republicans that think that this president needs to be impeached; he needs to be removed from office one way or another.”
The three co-sponsors of the articles: Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Brian Babin (R-TX), and Randy Weber (R-TX).
The impeachment articles from Gibb’s are not the only articles that House Republicans have delivered.
In January, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced impeachment articles against Biden for “abuse of power by enabling bribery,” aimed at Joe Biden’s shady dealings with Hunter Biden. Later in August, Green followed up with two more articles concerning the deadly evacuation from Afghanistan and the eviction moratorium.
Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) introduced articles for impeachment earlier in September for Biden’s false portrayal of his call with former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. Weber believes Biden abused his power for not admitting Ghani’s warning that Afghanistan could be quickly overrun. Parts of the Ghani, Biden conversation were leaked that recorded Biden’s disregard for the notice.
