Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs of Ohio sponsored the resolution to impeach Biden. He was joined by three co-sponsors: Reps. Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas and Andy Biggs of Arizona.
- One article states that Biden “violated his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President” in his handling of the illegal immigration crisis.
- Another article says he violated the separation of powers when he extended the federal eviction moratorium “despite the clear warning from the U.S. Supreme Court” and “with no legislative directive from the U.S. Congress.”
- When asked about an extension to the eviction moratorium on Aug. 3, Biden told a reporter: “The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says that it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster, but there are several key scholars who think that it may and it’s worth the effort. But the present you could not the Court has already ruled on the present eviction moratorium.”
- A third article of impeachment calls for the president to be removed over his botched exit from Afghanistan. The article states that Biden “failed to act responsibly as Commander in Chief with regard to the withdrawal of United States forces from Afghanistan.”
