WASHINGTON (WJW) – A group of House Republicans led by Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs have filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden Tuesday.

Gibbs, from Ohio’s Seventh Congressional District, said Biden was unfit for the job and was deliberately violating the separation of powers.

“It is clear that with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, the House will not hold President Biden accountable for his flagrant violations of his constitutional obligations. That shouldn’t stop Republicans from calling them out, ”Gibbs said on his Facebook page.

“Between his willful neglect of the border crisis, his intentional actions against the moratorium on illegal evictions, and his shameful conduct during the withdrawal from Afghanistan, it is clear that Biden is sorely breaking his oath.”

The resolution is co-sponsored by Republican Representatives Brian Babin and Randy Wester Sr., both of Texas, and Andy Biggs, of Arizona.

In early August, Gibbs wrote a letter urging the GOP to consider impeachment.

This is the second attempt to oust the president after Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene filed articles of impeachment. a day after Biden took the oath. This effort went nowhere in the Democratic-controlled House, and the same result seems likely this time around.

Biden’s predecessor, former President Trump, has been dismissed twice, a first in the history of the United States.
