On Friday, Florida Republican Rep. Greg Steube took the lead among his GOP peers, presenting impeachment papers against President Biden.
Several congressional committees are currently looking into a comprehensive case aiming for Biden’s removal. However, Steube believes the time to act is now. His impeachment articles claim President Biden played a part in Hunter Biden’s alleged unlawful activities and actively tried to protect him.
“President Biden has compromised the honor of his position, tainted the prestige of the presidency, violated his presidential trust, and acted against the principles of law and justice to the detriment of the American public,” Steube stated.
Steube’s papers present four allegations of Biden’s severe wrongdoings.
The first claim suggests President Biden misused his official capacity, supposedly receiving bribes and committing other violations linked to his association with his family’s business. This specifically points to allegations that Hunter and James Biden (the president’s sibling) tried to monetize access to then-Vice President Biden between 2009 and 2017, seeking financial and business favors from both local and foreign associates.
A report from Rep. James Comer, R-Ky, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, disclosed on Wednesday a purported total foreign payment of over $20 million to the Biden family. However, Democratic representatives argue there’s no proof implicating President Biden in any wrongful acceptance of payments or other misdeeds.
The subsequent article alleges obstruction of justice by President Biden, referring to claims from an IRS whistleblower that Biden’s campaign wrongfully collaborated with the Justice Department to obstruct probes into Hunter Biden’s alleged tax offenses. Contrarily, both the DOJ and the special counsel assigned to the Hunter Biden investigation, David Weiss, have refuted any hindrance by the Biden administration.
The remaining two articles levy accusations of fraud and covering expenses for Hunter Biden’s supposed illicit drug consumption and encounters with prostitutes.
Steube emphasized, “The evidence keeps accumulating. The Biden family has benefited from Joe’s governmental roles using corrupt means. It’s imperative Joe Biden no longer remains in the Presidential seat.”
In tandem, Steube also proposed a bill mandating a comprehensive report from the Secret Service on illegal drug activities within the White House. This follows a closed investigation last month by the Secret Service regarding cocaine discovered in the White House without pinpointing any suspects. The bill is humorously termed the “Helping Understand Narcotics Traces at the Executive Residence (HUNTER) Act.”
Expressing his discontent, Steube remarked, “For a top-tier law enforcement agency like the USSS, it’s inexcusable to leave the cocaine incident in the White House unresolved. The public deserves clarity. My bill seeks insights on the previous investigation and emphasizes how Congress can oversee and curb future drug issues in the White House.”
Compared to other GOP-led committee pursuits aiming for Biden’s impeachment, Steube’s articles are ahead. The White House has dismissed the notion of Biden’s potential removal.
In response to the GOP’s actions, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre mentioned in July, “Our primary concern remains on the initiatives this administration is taking. The positive economic data is a testament to the President’s efforts. Our goal remains on enhancing the lives of the American people.”
