President Joe Biden may face articles of impeachment if Republicans manage to win back the House in November’s midterms over what one GOP lawmaker describes as “traitorous conduct.”
In an interview with Just the News founder John Solomon, Texas Rep. Lance Gooden, whose district is being overrun by a surge of illegal aliens, argued that Biden’s failure to secure the U.S.-Mexico border has dramatically boosted the likelihood that Republicans may push to impeach him if the GOP regains control of Congress.
“I really believe that impeachment could be on the table. And I would support that, certainly,” Gooden said, going on to note the two-time Democrat-engineered impeachment of then-President Donald Trump.
“The bar was so low to impeach President Trump. And even if the bar were raised exponentially, I believe that President Biden has met that requirement. What we’re seeing at the border is not just criminal, but it is immoral. The fact that our United States government is putting its own citizens behind those of other nations, and also encouraging human trafficking,” he said.
“And what we’re seeing [is] they’re filling the bank accounts and the cash stashes of the cartel. It’s really a travesty. And it’s not what this country should be about,” Gooden added.
Several other Republicans have made a similar argument.
New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, the No. 3 Republican in the House, told Just the News that the border crisis is now “inflaming her own state.”
“Anything is on the table when we are in the majority. We’re focused like a laser on the crises in America, and what I hear from voters even in my district in Northern New York — because I represent border patrol officers who have been transferred again and again and again to the southern border — is that the crisis after crisis is a catastrophe,” Stefanik told the outlet.
“What I believe we should focus on is conducting oversight, and making sure that we’re passing legislation to secure the border once and for all and return the policies of the previous administration under President Trump,” she noted further.
In addition, Ohio GOP Senate candidate J.D. Vance has characterized the legitimacy of impeaching Biden.
“The thing that I think Biden has done that is genuinely unprecedented in the history of this country is to sanction, encourage and pay for an invasion of this country,” he has said.
“A lot of negative things I could say about Bill Clinton, but Bill Clinton did not allow an invasion on this scale, or actively encourage people to do it, even while the leading cause of death for communities, among young people, is the fentanyl they’re bringing in from Mexico,” Vance continued.
“This is ridiculous, it’s traitorous conduct, and we need to do something about it,” he added.
