Republicans are preparing to impeach Democratic President Joe Biden, and if they win back the US House in November, Biden will be charged with an increasing number of crimes and misdemeanors.
Left-leaning media is raising the alarm and attempting to downplay the anxiety surrounding the concept.
The Hill noted on Tuesday that “A number of rank-and-file conservatives have already introduced impeachment articles in the current Congress against the president.”
“They accuse Biden of committing ‘high crimes’ in his approach to a range of issues touching on border enforcement, the coronavirus pandemic, and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.”
“At least eight resolutions to impeach Biden have been offered since he took office: Three related to his handling of the migrant surge at the southern border; three targeting his management of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year; one denouncing the eviction moratorium designed to help renters during the pandemic; and still another connected to the overseas business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden,” according to The Hill.
Conservative Brief expanded on the story by saying:
Those resolutions never had a chance of seeing the light of day, with Democrats holding a narrow control of the lower chamber. But with Republicans widely expected to win the House majority in the midterms, many of those same conservatives want to tap their new potential powers to oust a president they deem unfit. Some would like to make it a first order of business.
“I have consistently said President Biden should be impeached for intentionally opening our border and making Americans less safe,” Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), said, according to The Hill.
“Congress has a duty to hold the President accountable for this and any other failures of his Constitutional responsibilities, so a new Republican majority must be prepared to aggressively conduct oversight on day one.”
The effort to remove Biden from office has been led by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).

Summary: H.Res.57 — 117th Congress (2021-2022)
All Information (Except Text)
There is one summary for H.Res.57. Bill summaries are authored by CRS.
Introduced in House (01/21/2021)
This resolution impeaches President Joseph Robinette Biden for abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.
Specifically, the resolution sets forth an article of impeachment stating that, in his former role as Vice President, President Biden abused the power of that office through enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors by allowing his son Hunter Biden to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept benefits from foreign nationals in exchange for favors.
The article states that, by such conduct, President Biden
endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government;
threatened the integrity of the democratic system;
interfered with the peaceful transition of power;
imperiled a coordinate branch of government; and
demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office.
The article also states that this conduct warrants immediate impeachment, trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.
Nick Dyer, a congresswoman’s spokesperson, wrote to The Hill in an email,“She believes Joe Biden should have been impeached as soon as he was sworn in, so of course she wants it to happen as soon as possible.”
The Hill reported that since Biden took office, “At least eight resolutions to impeach Biden have been offered since he took office: Three related to his handling of the migrant surge at the southern border; three targeting his management of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year; one denouncing the eviction moratorium designed to help renters during the pandemic; and still another connected to the overseas business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden.”

“Ignoring the conservatives’ impeachment entreaties might spark a revolt from a Republican base keen to avenge the Democrats’ two impeachments of Trump, who remains the most popular national figure in the GOP,” the outlet added. CONTINUE READING…
