Republicans have just put Democrat President Joe Biden “officially on notice” that the House will introduce articles of impeachment when the GOP takes back control of Congress after the midterms.
In an announcement, the GOP confirmed the plan to impeach Biden over his failed border policies.
Republican members of the House say the crisis Biden caused by ending Trump’s successful border policies and instituting new ones, without doing proper due diligence on the ramifications of that move, is grounds for impeachment.
“I really believe that impeachment could be on the table,” said Rep. Lance Gooden, a Texas Republican whose district has seen a surge in illegal immigration.
“And I would support that, certainly.
“The bar was so low to impeach President Trump.
“And even if the bar were raised exponentially, I believe that President Biden has met that requirement.
“What we’re seeing at the border is not just criminal, but it is immoral.
“The fact that our United States government is putting its own citizens behind those of other nations, and also encouraging human trafficking.
“And what we’re seeing is they’re filling the bank accounts and the cash stashes of the cartel. It’s really a travesty.
“And it’s not what this country should be about.”
Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York said:
“Anything is on the table when we are in the majority.
“We’re focused like a laser on the crises in America, and what I hear from voters even in my district in Northern New York — because I represent border patrol officers who have been transferred again and again and again to the southern border — is that the crisis after crisis is a catastrophe.
“What I believe we should focus on is conducting oversight, and making sure that we’re passing legislation to secure the border once and for all and return the policies of the previous administration under President Trump.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said:
“Probably the most compelling grounds are the utter lawlessness of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border.
“His decision to just defy federal immigration laws and allow two million people to come here unimpeded in direct contravention of his obligation under Article 2 of the Constitution to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.
“That is probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment, but there may be others.”
Rep. Bob Gibbs of Ohio said:
“This is a shot across the bow.
“When Republicans take back the House, we will take our commitment to the separation of powers, our role as a check and balance to the executive branch, seriously.
“President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the entire administration is officially on notice,” he said.
