Biden has ‘violated oath of office,’ GOP rep claims


REPUBLICAN Representative Andy Biggs has claimed that President Joe Biden “endangered this country willfully violating his oath of office,” after he and four congressmen filed Articles of Impeachment against the president last week.

Biggs, a representative from Arizona, made the claims while speaking to Fox & Friends First on Friday.

On Tuesday, Biggs was joined by GOP Reps. Brian Babin (Texas), Randy Weber (Texas) and Bob Gibbs (Ohio) in filing articles of impeachment against Biden.

The congressmen argue the president should be removed from office for not securing the border, for the way American troops were taken out of Afghanistan, and for seeking to impose a ban on evictions even though Biden himself said it might not pass constitutional muster.

Biggs said: “The reality is, we don’t do things like this because we are going to win every time, we do them because it is the right thing to do.

ARTICLES FILED

“This president has endangered this country willfully violating his oath of office but also violated statutes and ignored statutes and instructed his team to do the same.

“Particularly on the border, or how he left Americans behind, or how they won’t give us information.

“What we have done this is a somber thing when you do an impeachment, we are not trying to debase it, Democrats were trying to debase impeachment, we are trying to do the right thing because President Biden actually has violated his oath of office, he has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, he’s unfit to continue as president of the United States and that is what impeachment is designed to get to.

Tuesday’s filing is second time articles of impeachment have been introduced pertaining to Biden.

The day after Biden was sworn into office, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, filed three articles against the president – though many saw Greene’s actions as little more than a political stunt.

With Democrats holding a small majority in the House, neither effort is expected to go far.

A HOUSE DIVIDED

The introductions, however, show how such efforts are becoming evermore common in a divide House.

Former President Donald Trump was twice impeached by the House during his presidency – though he was never convicted in the Senate.

Trump’s first impeachment came in 2019, after records showed he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family during his 2020 presidential campaign.

This year, Trump was impeached for his role in the buildup to the January 6 Capitol riots.
