Boebert’s two articles of impeachment against Biden focus on the crisis at the nation’s southern border. “Biden intentionally ceded command & control of our border to cartels. His dereliction of duty caused the deaths of over 900 Coloradans from fentanyl, enabled sex-trafficking, & allowed an invasion. I brought my articles of impeachment up via a privileged motion to force a vote,” she tweeted Tuesday.
Censure vote will be tomorrow. A majority of 20 are switching their vote to support the new resolution and some members who were out of town will be voting with us. Based on our count, Adam Schiff will be investigated by ethics and censured. Thank you to my colleagues for working…— Anna Paulina Luna (@realannapaulina) June 21, 2023

“It’s about Joe Biden’s failure to secure the southern border,” the congresswoman told Fox News.
“Given the severity of the violation of Joe Biden’s constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of the president, United States to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, this is something that we must do with our majorities in the House of Representatives,” Boebert said.
“This is our duty because Joe Biden has neglected the constitutional duty of the office of president of the United States,” she said.Not all Republicans are on board. “I don’t think that impeachment is something that should be taken lightly. I think the House should only impeach when it is likely … to have the votes in the House and the Senate,” Republican Rep. Nick LaLota of New York said, according to Axios. [firefly_poll] House passage of articles of impeachment sets up a Senate trial. With the Democrats in the majority in the upper chamber, Senate conviction on any impeachment charges against Biden appears unlikely. Greene’s articles of impeachment also focus on the border crisis, according to USA Today. She filed those last month.
Greene has vented her frustration that some GOP members do not want to impeach Biden, according to Breitbart. The congresswoman said the question of impeachment boils down to a willingness on the part of House Republicans to show the courage of their convictions. “We have to impeach him in the House to show and prove to our voters that we’re willing to do these things, are willing to bring accountability. If we don’t do it, then why do they want to vote for us?” she said. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
NEWS: Rep. MTG tells me she plans to also move forward on privileged motions that’d force a vote on her impeachment resolutions, saying she had this in the works “before this weekend.”Likely her 1st resolution is going to focus on FBI Chief Wray as her first target this week. — Olivia Beavers (@Olivia_Beavers) June 21, 2023
