Republicans File Impeachment Articles Against Biden, Tear Up His ‘Deliberate Negligence’ Of Border Crisis

0

A group of Republican lawmakers led by Alabama Rep. Bob Gibbs wants to remove President Joe Biden from office and filed articles of impeachment against him on Tuesday.

Gibbs alleges the president has violated his oath of office on three counts, according to text obtained by DailyMail.com: the southern border crisis, the moratorium on evictions and Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Representatives Andy Biggs of Arizona, Brian Babin of Texas and Randy Weber of Texas are co-sponsors of the effort.

“Yesterday I filed three articles of impeachment against President Biden on the basis of what I believe to be clear violations of his duties as president,” Gibbs told DailyMail.com on Wednesday.

His willful negligence of the border crisis is a failure to maintain and defend US sovereignty. Biden’s efforts to extend a federal moratorium on expulsion, despite the Supreme Court’s warning and his own admission that he has no jurisdiction to do so, is a blatant and deliberate action that violates the separation of powers.”

It's the second time Republicans have tried to impeach Biden

Rep. Gibbs filed the articles of impeachment against Biden on Tuesday, marking the second time House Republicans have attempted to appeal the drastic measure.

He continued: “Finally, the withdrawal from Afghanistan was not just a disaster. By withdrawing military personnel for the evacuation of American citizens, President Biden has shamefully endangered our own citizens.”

Gibbs said the crisis in Afghanistan prompted him to file impeachment proceedings.

“I’m not taking this step lightly. Before the debacle in Afghanistan, I urged my colleagues to consider a deliberate, thoughtful conversation about the merits of impeachment,” he said.

He added that the sweeping COVID vaccine order that Biden introduced earlier this month could be added as an additional article at a later date.

The Republican in Alabama acknowledged it would be virtually impossible to get impeachment proceedings off the ground in the Democrat-controlled House and said it was “a shot across the bow” intended to warn the government.

“There is a political dynamic in Congress that I know will prevent this from ever being debated. But I couldn’t stand by as I believe President Biden commits flagrant and deliberate violations of his oath of office,” Gibbs said.

“If Republicans take back the House, we will take seriously our commitment to the separation of powers, our role as a check-and-balance for the executive. President Biden, Vice President Harris and the entire administration are officially informed.”

In the first article, Gibbs attacks Biden for failing to secure the US-Mexico border by halting the construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall and “leaving Border Patrol agents to their fate.” in the effort to secure our borders’.

He also accused Biden of ‘deliberately releasing'[ing] migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 to the United States after the White House reversed Title 42 enforcement.

Title 42 was created during the COVID pandemic to enable the Trump administration to immediately expel asylum seekers in the name of public health. As Biden fights to maintain the policy, he has made exceptions for unaccompanied minors and families with young children.

Article II says Biden “failed to faithfully execute the law” by extending a COVID-era eviction nationwide, despite the Supreme Court previously warning that such a rule would require Congressional approval.

In fact, when he announced the extension in early August, the president admitted he didn’t know if it would “make it through the constitution.”

The latest impeachment article contains the strongest condemnation of Biden’s actions during his tenure.

It says Biden “aided and encouraged the enemy by failing to secure or destroy US-donated military equipment when Taliban forces took territory in Afghanistan.”

“President Biden has implemented a withdrawal policy that puts Afghanistan in the hands of a terror-supporting regime and weakens America’s ability to prosecute the Global War on Terror,” it said.

However, he echoed previous reports from defense officials that most of them — including planes and vehicles abandoned at Kabul airport — had been rendered useless.

Tuesday’s impeachment attempt, first reported by the Washington Examiner, is the second time Republicans have attempted the drastic measure against the Democratic president.

Georgia Deputy Marjorie Taylor Greene filed impeachment proceedings against Biden on his first full day in office.

Green claimed he is “unfit for office” and “will do whatever it takes to save Hunter.”

In a statement, Greene said she accuses Biden of abusing his power as vice president when his son was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of president. His pattern of abuse of power as Vice President Obama is long-lasting and disturbing,” she said on Jan. 21.

“President Biden has shown that he will do anything to save his son Hunter and fill his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.”

So far, no Republican leadership has indicated that they would support a move to remove Biden from office.

But days before the US completed its military withdrawal from Afghanistan, House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy sent a stark warning to the president.

“Look, I’m extremely frustrated with this president,” McCarthy said at a news conference the day after a devastating attack on the Kabul airport killed at least 170 people and 13 US troops.

He said a president must have “the faith, trust and confidence” of Americans – which he said Biden lost.

“There will be a day of reckoning and we have a constitutional right,” the Republican legislature threatened.

McCarthy said the main focus should be on evacuating Americans who are still stranded in Afghanistan, but “when that day passes, we can pick up anything — to be accountable for the actions that have been taken, the lies that have been given, the wrong decisions that put Americans in danger, and the decision to leave Americans behind.”
