In a bold move, Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, demanding a House floor vote in the upcoming days. Boebert’s articles center on Biden’s handling of immigration and the U.S.-Mexico border, coinciding with court revelations of a plea agreement for Hunter Biden over tax and firearm offenses.
On Tuesday, Boebert passionately voiced her concerns about Biden’s alleged negligence on the House floor, stating, “President Biden’s negligence of duty has resulted in the surrender of operational control of the border to the complete and total control of foreign criminal cartels, putting the lives of American citizens in jeopardy.”
Differentiating her impeachment efforts from others, Boebert explained that her approach employs a procedural tactic that mandates a floor vote, making it essential for every Member of Congress to be held accountable. Taking to Twitter, Boebert announced, “I am bringing my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden to the House Floor in a privileged motion.”
The response from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s spokesperson regarding the timing of the resolution’s floor discussion remains unknown as of now.
