Articles Of Impeachment Filed Against Joe Biden For 'Violations Of His Duties As President'

House Republicans have filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.

Ohio representative Bob Gibbs is leading the call against the US President and his impeachment efforts have been sponsored by Andy Biggs of Arizona and Texas' Brian Babin and Randy Weber.

Congressman Gibbs wrote on his Facebook page: "Yesterday I filed three articles of impeachment against President Biden based on what I believe to be clear violations of 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.

"Finally, the withdrawal from Afghanistan was not just a disaster. By pulling military personnel out before the evacuation of American civilians, President Biden shamefully left our own citizens in danger.

"Additionally, his failure to secure billions in military hardware before our departure amounts to aiding and abetting the enemy while he also violated our allies' trust.'

The Republican said he did not come to this move 'lightly', however he felt forced to act after what happened in Afghanistan.

Joe Biden has been largely criticised for removing America's presence in the Middle Eastern country after 20 years of war, despite his predecessor, Donald Trump, also advocating for troops to be extracted.

The removal of US and other allied soldiers saw the Taliban seize the opportunity to take back control of Afghanistan and they did it seemingly with ease.

Mr Biden hit back at these criticisms, saying America had to leave at some point and local forces didn't face up to the challenge of facing Taliban militants.

But that hasn't stopped attacks from the right side of politics.

Congressman Gibbs said: "I urged my colleagues to consider a measured, thoughtful conversation on the merits of impeachment.

"While the President's dereliction of duty on Afghanistan compelled me to introduce this resolution, it is entirely likely we could add to it once the Biden administration attempts to implement its intended private sector vaccine mandate."

President Biden has announced a new mandatory vaccination policy that will affect 100 million people.

Federal workers and contractors, employees at government-funded hospitals and health centres, and workers at companies that have 100 or more staff will have to get the jab.

The Republican who filed the article of impeachment admits his efforts will probably not see the President removed.

However Mr Gibbs said: "I could not stand by while President Biden commits what I believe to be flagrant and deliberate violations of his oath of office.

"President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the entire administration is officially on notice."
