Rep. Lauren Boebert Drives Impeachment Vote Against President Biden

Rep. Lauren Boebert presented impeachment articles against President Joe Biden on Tuesday, forcing a House floor vote in the coming days.

The pieces, which center on Biden’s handling of immigration and the US-Mexico border, were published on the same day that court documents disclosed a plea agreement for Hunter Biden on misdemeanor tax charges and a felony firearm crime.

“President Biden’s negligence of duty has resulted in the surrender of operational control of the border to complete and total control of foreign criminal cartels putting the lives of American citizens in jeopardy,” Boebert said on Tuesday’s House floor.

Unlike earlier impeachment initiatives, Boebert’s employs a procedural strategy that necessitates a floor vote in the House.

“I am bringing my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden to the House Floor in a privileged motion, meaning that every Member of Congress must vote on holding Joe Biden accountable,” Boebert tweeted.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., did not immediately respond to a request for comment on when the resolution would be debated.

In an email to colleagues Tuesday night, House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark of Massachusetts stated that the House “is expected to take a procedural vote on the motion to table the resolution when it is offered this week.”

A proposal to postpone the resolution would effectively stymie Boebert’s efforts.

The six-page impeachment resolution contends that Biden has abused his position and is failing as president, presiding over an administration “that has continuously, overtly, and consistently violated Federal immigration law by pursuing an aggressive, open-borders agenda.”

Boebert, who attempted to remove Biden from office in 2021, charges him with releasing millions of immigrants into the country “purposefully and knowingly” and accuses him of doing so “without the intention or ability to ensure that they appear in immigration court to face asylum or deportation proceedings.”

When questioned about the situation, a spokesman for the White House, Ian Sams, issued a statement in which he said that “extreme House Republicans are staging baseless political stunts that do nothing to help real people and only serve to get themselves attention.”

Biden has been under fire from congressional Republicans and some Democrats for how he has handled border crossings on the southern side, and they have consistently opposed moves to roll back Title 42, a Trump-era policy that was repealed last month.

The Biden administration has defended its border policies, contending in a recent court filing that its actions have decreased the number of migrants permitted to apply for asylum at the southern border by allowing them to be screened for asylum only if they can demonstrate that they have previously tried to do so in countries they have passed through or that their cases are exceptions to the rule.

Since Title 42 was repealed, border crossings have decreased from over 10,000 to about 3,500 per day.

Republicans have already presented articles of impeachment against Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of homeland security, but they have not been put to a vote.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, proposed articles of impeachment against Biden in May over the administration’s handling of migrant crossings. Still, Boebert’s directive did not necessitate a floor vote on the proposal.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., utilized the same procedural strategy Boebert did last week to reprimand and penalize Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. In a floor vote, Democrats and nearly two dozen Republicans defeated the proposal.

A separate resolution to censure Schiff without fining him will be put to the vote on Wednesday night, according to Luna, who added that she had secured the required number of GOP votes to pass. She made the announcement to NBC News on Tuesday.
