On Monday, Tennessee Rep. Andy Ogles (R) introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
The articles accuse Biden of violating his “constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Biden is also accused of abusing his power and weaponizing the Office of the President in order to “shield the business and influence peddling schemes of his family from congressional oversight and public accountability.”
The articles also criticize his handling of the southern border crisis, suggesting that he has acted in a “manner contrary to the public trust and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
Biden is also accused of withholding “a critical FD-1023 form until threatened with a congressional subpoena” that “reportedly details a bribery scheme in which members of the Biden family, including Joseph Robinette Biden, received $5,000,000 each to assist Burisma Holdings.”
Speaking to Fox News Digital, Ogles said, “Joe Biden hasn’t just failed the American people with his abysmal excuse for ‘leadership’ – he’s violated his sworn oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
“Joe Biden has repeatedly abused his position of power, both as vice president and president, to cover up his illicit family business dealings and exploitation of taxpayer resources,” Ogles added. “The American people know they can’t depend on the so-called ‘Department of Justice’ to investigate the Biden family’s corruption, and so it’s up to the U.S. Congress to hold him accountable once and for all.”
“Biden is a disgrace to the Oval Office and should be stripped of his position and held responsible for his crimes against the United States,” continued Ogles.
In Harris’ impeachment articles, Ogles highlights her poor handling of the southern border crisis, accusing her of demonstrating “extraordinary incompetence in the execution of her duties and responsibilities and an indifference to Americans suffering as a result of America’s ongoing southern border crisis.”
“Vice President Harris has consistently refused to visit the southern border to ascertain the root causes of the ongoing crisis, aside from a single trip hundreds of miles away from the epicenter of the migrant crisis,” the articles state.
“In permitting an invasion of illegal aliens and illicit drugs into the United States, as well as facilitating the extenuation of a major humanitarian crisis, Vice President Kamala Devi Harris has directly betrayed the public trust of the United States, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
Critiquing Vice President Harris’ handling of the immigration crisis facing the U.S., Ogles said, “[Harris] has allowed the land invasion at our southern border to continue unchecked, threatening the livelihoods of millions and the lives of thousands who have been murdered at the hands of illegal aliens and died from illicit fentanyl.”
