Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs became the lastest Republican to draw articles of impeachment against Joe Biden. Gibbs had a laundry list of reasons he feels Biden needs to be impeached but says he was motivated after the deaths of the 13 service members who died in Afghanistan. Their senseless deaths at the hands of terrorists at the Kabul airport, last month, was the last straw for Gibbs.
“I filed articles of impeachment against @POTUS based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties,” Gibbs posted on Twitter Wednesday the day after filing the impeachment articles. “There are dynamics in Congress preventing this from being debated. But I could not stand by while Biden commits flagrant & deliberate violations of his oath of office.”
Gibbs notes that Biden’s horrific mishandling on immigration and his unconstitutional attempts to extend the federal moratorium without a vote are clear failures and show an inability to carry out his duties as president.[

“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 told the Daily Mail on Wednesday.
He says he knows it won’t be easy, stating that the articles will likely be killed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he acknowledged in an interview with the Washington Examiner.
“Obviously, it’s not going to go anywhere with Speaker Pelosi,” Gibbs said about the Democratic-controlled house but added, “It shows that there are some Republicans that think that this president needs to be impeached, he needs to be removed from office one way or another.”
Gibbs is joined by Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Reps. Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas.
