(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Freshman Representative Andy Ogles (R-Tenn.) recently filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden over his “illicit family dealings,” as well as allegations that Biden is exploiting taxpayer resources.
The articles of impeachment, filed Monday, June 12, are part of a long series of articles of impeachment filed by other Republican House members. During the 117th Congress, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene filed articles of impeachment against the president for “enabling bribery” when he was vice president during the Obama administration.
Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert also recently introduced articles of impeachment against the president over his handling of the U.S.-Mexican border crisis. In a statement, Boebert said that the president “violated his duty under Article II of the Constitution” to enforce the laws of the United States and take proper action to quell massive amounts of illegal immigration at the southern border.
This time, the articles of impeachment filed by Ogles are directed toward the president’s alleged illegal family dealings. According to a statement by the congressman, the articles were filed because the public “cannot depend” on the Biden administration’s Department of Justice to investigate the “Biden family’s corruption.”
Ogles also accused Vice President Kamala Harris of being an “accomplice” to Biden, saying that she has allowed the “invasion” of foreign migrants at the southern border, repeatedly displaying her incompetence.
The first article of impeachment accuses Biden of using his executive power as president to shield his family from the legal repercussions of his illicit family dealings. The second article accuses Biden of not properly enforcing the law, which is the task of the executive branch, by allowing undocumented migrants to flow freely into the United States.
So far, none of the impeachment articles introduced by Ogles, Greene, or Boebert have garnered enough support to pass the House of Representatives.
If the House were to impeach President Biden, the Senate would have to hold a trial, with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts presiding over it. A two-thirds majority, or 67 senators, is required to convict an impeached officer of the United States government.
