Four Republican representatives introduced 3 articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden claiming “he’s not capable of being commander-in-chief” citing his handling of Afghanistan, immigration and more.
Four Republican representatives including Reps. Bob Gibbs (R-OH), and cosponsors Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Brian Babin (R-TX), and Randy Weber (R-TX) introduced three articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on Tuesday.
The representatives cited Biden’s handling of Afghanistan, immigration, and the now-defunct federal eviction moratorium, the Daily Wire reported.
“I take this seriously. I don’t think it’s haphazard. I’m not trying to get media attention for myself,” Rep. Gibbs told The Washington Examiner. “He’s done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary.”
“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,” Gibbs continued. “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 [Nancy] Pelosi,” Gibbs said. “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.”
“At some point, they’re gonna be held accountable for their actions, and this is kind of putting them on notice,” Gibbs added.
The focus of the impeachment articles by the representatives is Biden’s handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the crisis at the US border, and the federal eviction moratorium.
On Monday, over half of America’s governors, 26 Republican governors, cosigned a letter sent to the White House calling on President Biden to take a stronger stance on illegal immigration. The letter demanded Biden and the “national security crisis created by eight months of unenforced borders.”
On Wednesday, numerous outlets reported that thousands of migrants were being released into the United States by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), according to officials who spoke to the Associated Press, despite claims by the Biden administration that most migrants would be expelled or put in expedited removal proceedings, CNN reported.
The complaint called out Biden for reinstating a ban on the eviction moratorium, ordered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), something the White House previously claimed was unconstitutional. In late August, the Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration from enforcing moratorium and called out the CDC for “assuming too much power” calling “the claim of expansive authority… unprecedented”
Biden’s ordered the US out of Afghanistan by August 31, while leaving potentially hundreds of Americans behind in the terrorist-controlled nation, as well as potentially tens of thousands of Afghans who assisted the US military against the Taliban. A terror attack at the airport resulted in the death of thirteen US service members. In response to the attack, the Biden administration carried out drone strikes against an alleged ISIS-K terror group in response, resulting in the bombing of an Afghan aid worker and nine members of his family, including several children, with the Pentagon admitting last week it had made a mistake.
