Biden Faces More Articles of Impeachment

Biden Faces More Articles of Impeachment

( – President Joe Biden has faced multiple articles of impeachment. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced the first ones on the day after his inauguration, and others have submitted similar articles in the years since then. A Florida representative has now issued even more.

On August 11, Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) announced he filed articles of impeachment against Biden for high crimes and misdemeanors. The Republican congressman accused the president of obstruction of justice, fraud, and bribery. The allegations are related to Hunter Biden’s alleged crimes.

The first article of impeachment accused Hunter and James Biden, the president’s brother, of selling access to him when he served as vice president during former President Barack Obama’s administration. Steube claimed the president helped the schemers by taking phone calls, attending business meetings, and allegedly allowing his family to sell access to him.

The second article accuses Biden of obstructing justice by reportedly interfering with the investigation into his son. The third article claims he committed fraud by recruiting investors for business ventures that failed. And finally, the fourth article of impeachment alleges Biden’s money was used to pay for prostitutes and drugs.

The congressman didn’t provide any proof of the allegations he was making. So far, Republicans in Congress have said that they have not found hard evidence of wrongdoing by the president, but they continue to look.

In addition to Greene and Steube, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has also filed articles of impeachment against President Biden.

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will ultimately make the decision about whether to open an impeachment inquiry. He’d previously been against taking such action but, in recent weeks, has warmed to the idea. There’s a concern that launching an inquiry would put moderate Republicans in districts Biden won in danger of losing their seats in 2024, and that could cost McCarthy his House majority. However, he has said he would do it if the evidence warrants a probe.
