Republican Representative Andy Ogles has formally introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The first article of impeachment accuses President Biden of misusing his executive powers to protect his family’s business and influence peddling schemes from congressional oversight.
It also alleges that Biden administration officials, including FBI Director Christopher Wray and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, withheld crucial documents requested by Congress regarding the Biden family’s financial activities.
According to Ogles, the documents that were requested contained reports about suspicious activity in the Biden family’s bank accounts and details about multiple limited liability companies that were allegedly used to transfer millions of dollars to Biden family members through complex financial transactions designed to hide the source of the funds from the public.
The second article of impeachment claims that President Biden neglected his duty to enforce the laws of the United States by contributing to the ongoing crisis at the southern border, endangering the American people.
The articles of impeachment also make allegations of bribery, citing an FBI form FBI FD-1023 that supports claims that Joe Biden and his son Hunter received substantial payments from a Ukrainian energy company in exchange for preferential treatment from American decision-makers.
Fox News reported a document alleging that while Joe Biden was vice president, he and his son Hunter received $5 million each from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
According to the articles of impeachment, in 2016, former Vice President Joe Biden requested the dismissal of Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Shokin was investigating corruption within the Burisma organization, which the Ukrainian government supported. According to Biden, if Shokin wasn’t dismissed, it could put $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees at risk. During that time, Hunter, who lacks formal training or experience in the energy sector, earned $80,000 monthly as a member of Burisma’s board. At a 2018 Council on Foreign Relations meeting, Biden proudly revealed that the individual in question had been terminated.
Furthermore, the articles of impeachment accuse Vice President Harris of dereliction of duty in handling the border crisis. Representative Ogles argues that the Biden administration has overridden attempts to enforce U.S. border security laws, leading to a significant increase in monthly encounters at the border. According to Ogles, the vice president is responsible for the increase in fentanyl overdose cases, which have now become the top cause of death among individuals aged 18 to 45 in America.
Additionally, Ogles criticizes Vice President Harris for her lack of action and indifference to the suffering caused by the southern border crisis. He highlights her refusal to visit the border, except for one distant trip that did not address the core issues of the migrant crisis.
