The GOP-led movement to kick off the impeachment process against President Biden shows no signs of slowing down after an FBI document revealing alleged corruption was released and two IRS whistleblowers testified before Congress this week.
‘Most corrupt family to ever live in the White House! Impeach!’ Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., wrote on Twitter.
‘Read and understand just how deep the corruption goes. Biden should be thrown out of office. Impeach!,’ wrote Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., along with shots of the FBI document.
‘Is this why Biden has America involved in the war in Ukraine??? Joe Biden is a criminal and is compromised! And he is leading us into WW3 [because Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has proof of more Biden crimes,’ Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., tweeted. ‘Republicans can no longer delay, but we need 218 Republican votes to do it. I’ve been there since day one and so are the American people. IMPEACH BIDEN!!!’
Greene is closely aligned with Speaker Kevin McCarthy, though McCarthy has not gotten behind the movement to impeach the president. Both Greene and Boebert have filed their own articles of impeachment through privileged resolution – meaning they could force them to the floor at any time without needing to get approval from leadership.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., said that based on evidence she’s seen, Biden ‘NEEDS to be impeached. He is compromised and his son is selling access to him.’
Luna noted it is up to Boebert and Greene to bring t heir impeachment articles to the House floor.’
Two GOP members have filed privileged motions to impeach Biden. One of the two has to call up the vote. Meaning they have to bring it to the floor thus forcing the vote.’
