President Joe Biden has encountered numerous instances of impeachment, with the initial ones being presented by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) shortly after his inauguration. Subsequent years have witnessed the introduction of comparable articles by various individuals, and most recently, a representative from Florida has put forth additional articles of impeachment.
Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) revealed on August 11th that he had submitted impeachment documents against President Biden, citing charges of significant wrongdoing and minor offenses. The Republican representative asserted that the president had engaged in actions obstructing justice, committing fraud, and participating in bribery. These claims are linked to purported misdeeds by Hunter Biden.
The primary impeachment article alleged that Hunter and James Biden, the president’s sibling, were charged with offering access to him during his tenure as vice president under former President Barack Obama. Steube asserted that the president assisted these individuals by participating in phone conversations, participating in business gatherings, and purportedly permitting his family to monetize access to his position.
The second article levels charges against Biden for supposedly impeding the course of justice by allegedly meddling with the inquiry involving his son. The third article asserts his involvement in fraudulence by enlisting investors for ventures that ultimately proved unsuccessful. Concluding with the fourth impeachment article, it alleges that Biden’s funds were employed for payments towards illicit activities like prostitutes and drugs.
No concrete evidence supporting these claims was furnished by the congressman. To date, Republican members in Congress have communicated their inability to uncover substantial proof of presidential misconduct, yet their investigations persist.
Alongside Greene and Steube, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has similarly presented articles of impeachment targeting President Biden.
The responsibility of initiating an impeachment investigation lies with Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Initially hesitant about pursuing this course, McCarthy’s stance has shown a recent shift in favor of the notion. There exists apprehension that launching such an inquiry could potentially imperil moderate Republicans representing districts won by Biden in the 2024 elections. This, in turn, might jeopardize McCarthy’s majority in the House. Nonetheless, McCarthy has indicated a willingness to proceed if compelling evidence necessitates an investigation.
