Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs is leading attempt to impeach President Biden over border security and Afghanistan.
Gibbs tweeted Wednesday “I filed articles of impeachment against @POTUS
based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties. There are dynamics in Congress preventing this from being debated. But I could not stand by while Biden commits flagrant & deliberate violations of his oath of office.”

Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Brian Babin, R-Texas, and Randy Weber, R-Texas, signed on to the three-pronged complaint — even if the Democrat-controlled House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are sure to ignore it, Gibbs told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
And despite Democrats holding only a slim majorities in the House and the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris can cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate.
Gibbs told the Washington Examiner “Obviously, it’s not going to go anywhere with Speaker Pelosi,” but explained “it shows that there are some Republicans that think that this president needs to be impeached, he needs to be removed from office one way or another.
“At some point, they’re going to be held accountable for their actions, and this is kind of putting them on notice,” he continued.
“I take this seriously; I don’t think it’s haphazard; I’m not trying to get media attention for myself,” Gibbs added. “He’s done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary.
“He’s not capable of being commander in chief, and that’s obvious by the actions since Day One when he took the presidency back in January. Maybe something like this makes the White House think twice before they do some of this nonsense,” he concluded.
