A group of four GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Bob Gibbs on Tuesday filed articles of impeachment against President Biden, saying he should be removed from office for not securing the border, for the way U.S. troops were removed from Afghanistan and for seeking to impose a ban on evictions even when he said it might not pass constitutional muster.

“It’s clear with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, the House will not hold President Biden accountable for the egregious violations of his constitutional duties. That shouldn’t stop Republicans from calling them out Between his willful negligence of the border crisis, his intentional actions on the unlawful eviction moratorium, and his shameful conduct in the Afghanistan withdrawal, it’s clear Biden is falling woefully short of his oath of office.

I don’t take this step lightly. Before the Afghanistan debacle, I urged my colleagues to consider a measured, thoughtful conversation on the merits of impeachment,” Gibbs, of Ohio’s Seventh Congressional District said.

This is the second time articles of impeachment have been introduced about Biden. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene filed articles of impeachment the day after Biden was sworn into office.

In the first article, Gibbs attacks Joe Biden for failing to secure the US-Mexico border by suspending the construction of Donald Trump’s border wall and ‘leaving Border Patrol agents to fend for themselves in the effort to secure our borders.’

The second article says Biden didn’t faithfully execute the law by extending a COVID-era stay on evictions across the country, despite the Supreme Court warning earlier that such a rule would need Congressional approval.

When he announced the extension in early August, the president even acknowledged he didn’t know if it would ‘pass constitutional muster.’ The second impeachment article contains the strongest condemnation of Biden’s actions in office.

Trump in January became the first U.S. president in history to be impeached twice following his actions ahead of the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. He was previously impeached in 2019 after records revealed that he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family amid his 2020 presidential campaign.
