Impeachment resolution against Biden PASSES House vote, now moves to two committees for review
By Arsenio Toledo // Jun 27, 2023

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives has passed a resolution on the floor of the House to impeach President Joe Biden for failing to secure America's southern border amid a growing border crisis.

The impeachment resolution, filed by GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, charges Biden with "high crimes and misdemeanors" for his mishandling of the illegal immigration crisis. (Related: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene launches IMPEACHMENT proceedings against Biden, 3 others for corruption.)

The House voted along party lines, 219 in favor to 208 against, to refer the resolution to two House committees – the House Judiciary Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee.

"Joe Biden's unconstitutional dereliction of his Article II duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed warrants impeachment," said Boebert on the House floor. "He has willfully created a border crisis that has … allowed millions of illegal aliens to pour into our country, threatened our national security and killed more than 100,000 Americans from fentanyl – including more than 1,800 Coloradans."

"I am pleased that House leadership worked with me on my impeachment bill to protect our constitutional republic," she added. "As demonstrated in this victory, I will continue to use every available procedural tool to hold Joe Biden accountable and advance impeachment proceedings."

McCarthy, Senate Republicans discouraging Biden impeachment

The House has not officially voted to impeach Biden. The referral of the impeachment resolution is a result of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy negotiating with Boebert to instead send the impeachment resolution for review to the two House committees.

"I think it's best for everybody," said the speaker.

McCarthy and many of his allies in the House claimed this is necessary to follow the speaker's pledge to follow "regular order" in Congress.

"I think impeachment is one of the most awesome powers of the United States Congress and it's not something that needs to be exercised flippantly," claimed GOP Rep. Garret Graves of Louisiana, a top ally of McCarthy.

In the Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said any effort to impeach Biden without so-called "due process" would be "dead on arrival."

Graham said he does not believe anybody should be impeached without a hearing being held. He noted that when former Democratic President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House in the late 1990s he was allowed to defend himself.

"What's being done in the House to go straight to the floor with articles of impeachment – we criticized the Democrats for not giving Trump any due process. I think this is dead on arrival," said Graham. He added that not putting any kind of proper process in place is "irresponsible."

"It's important that we follow the process, and if you believe that President Biden has done something this impeachable, take it through the committee, give him a chance to respond, and we'll see what happens," he added.

But House Republicans seem undeterred by these individuals within the party who would rather not focus on the impeachment.

"We are just beginning," said Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas.

Boebert warned that if committees attempt to slow-roll action on the impeachment resolution, she would bring it back to the floor "every day for the rest of my time here in Congress" to keep forcing the House to vote on Biden's impeachment.
