GOP Rep. To Colleagues: Consider Impeaching Biden Over Border, Eviction Moratorium

In a letter sent to his Republican colleagues on Friday, Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, encouraged his fellow Republicans to seriously consider impeaching Joe Biden for his flagrant disregard to the Constitution, specifically, his refusal to secure the southern border while allowing COVID-infected migrants in the country, and for the eviction moratorium unilaterally passed by the Centers for Disease Control without Congressional approval.

Biden, Gibbs said, “continues to disregard his constitutional duties and boundaries” and asked his fellow Republicans to consider what he called “a sober, evidence-based discussion regarding impeachment.”

“The rule of law, the separation of powers, and the limitations of executive authority are not just talking points conservatives and Republicans use on the campaign trail. When we see clear violations of the oath entrusted in elected officials, it is time to consider our constitutional duties. We cannot have a repeat of the DACA debacle, in which an unconstitutional order metastasized into acceptable administrative policy. The President is derelict in his duty, having repeatedly said he lacks the authority to extend the CDC’s eviction moratorium, then extending it anyway. His actions on the border represent a negligence in keeping America secure. We need to cut this off at the pass now and show we will not stand for clearly unconstitutional actions,” he said in a statement after sending the letter.

He also addressed Biden’s abuse of power:

“President Biden’s recent actions on the border represent a blatant dereliction of his constitutionally prescribed duties. Moreover, his shameless disregard for the limitations of his executive authority is a violation of his oath of office.

“Many of us were witness to the politically motivated impeachment proceedings of the previous four years. As conservatives and Republicans, I believe we understand impeachment is a serious constitutional mechanism, meant to be used only in the rarest and most grave circumstances. Sadly, we saw our Democrat colleagues debase it and use it as a talking point for electoral gain. We must strenuously avoid such trivial treatment of our duty.”
