Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., just filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and went on Fox News to make the case that Biden “committed high crimes and misdemeanors” and violated his oath of office.
Biggs said: “The reality is, we don’t do things like this because we are going to win every time, we do them because it is the right thing to do. This president has endangered this country willfully violating his oath of office but also violated statutes and ignored statutes and instructed his team to do the same.
“Particularly on the border, or how he left Americans behind, or how they won’t give us information. What we have done this is a somber thing when you do an impeachment, we are not trying to debase it.
“Democrats were trying to debase impeachment, we are trying to do the right thing because President Biden actually has violated his oath of office.
“He has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, he’s unfit to continue as president of the United States and that is what impeachment is designed to get to.”
From The New York Post:
A group of House Republicans have filed articles of impeachment against President Biden over his handling of the immigration crisis at the southern border and his chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to a report.
Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), who is leading the effort, said Biden violated his oath of office, in the three articles he filed on Tuesday.
”Yesterday, I filed three articles of impeachment against President Biden based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties as president,” Gibbs said on his Facebook page.
He is co-sponsor of the articles along with Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas.
“His willful negligence of the border crisis is a failure to maintain and defend American sovereignty. Biden’s attempts to extend a federal eviction moratorium despite the Supreme Court’s warning and his own admission that he has no power to do so is a blatant and intentional action that violates the separation of powers,” Gibbs continued.
Gibbs claimed in the articles that Biden released thousands of migrants into the US without ordering them to appear in court for an immigration hearing on a specific date.
Biden also allowed migrants who tested positive for the coronavirus to enter the US, Gibbs said. He said Biden extended the eviction moratorium despite a ruling by the Supreme Court urging him to get congressional approval first.
“Finally, the withdrawal from Afghanistan was not just a disaster. By pulling military personnel out before the evacuation of American civilians, President Biden shamefully left our own citizens in danger,” Gibbs said.
