With Republicans bullish about their chances of controlling the House after November’s midterms, some GOP lawmakers are already eyeing to make inroads on one issue that they say is a priority: impeaching President Joe Biden.
At least eight impeachment articles against Biden have been introduced to Congress since the president took office, accusing him of “high crimes and misdemeanors” over what the lawmakers described as the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, the southern border crisis, the moratorium barring eviction of renters who struggled with payment for pandemic reasons, and the foreign business dealings of president’s son, Hunter Biden.
These resolutions, which are largely symbolic, have virtually no chance of getting through the House under a narrow Democrat majority. But expectations that the GOP will flip the House have led some lawmakers to see an opening to push the matter further.
“I have consistently said President Biden should be impeached for intentionally opening our border and making Americans less safe,” Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), who has endorsed three of the impeachment resolutions targeting Biden, told The Epoch Times. “Congress has a duty to hold the President accountable for this and any other failures of his Constitutional responsibilities, so a new Republican majority must be prepared to aggressively conduct oversight on day one.”
Several other lawmakers have recently shared similar thinking. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a vocal Biden critic who led four impeachment resolutions, posted an image of Biden on Twitter following the president’s prime-time speech on Sept. 1, where he accused former President Donald Trump and his supporters of “extremism.”
“Joe Biden just declared all of us enemies of the state. Biden is a danger to us all,” she wrote, adding, that “Joe Biden MUST BE IMPEACHED!!”
