At least one additional House Republican has joined the effort to impeach President Joe Biden amidst criticisms based on an FBI document released last week.
According to The Washington Post, Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia filed articles of impeachment against Vice President Joe Biden in May, and Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado sponsored an impeachment resolution that is in the House Judiciary and Homeland Security Committees.
Since then, Montana Republican Representative Matt Rosendale has declared his support for impeaching Biden. According to Just the News, Republican Representatives Greg Steube of Florida and Ralph Norman of South Carolina said last week that they now support impeachment and that the grounds for impeachment align with the House Oversight Committee’s focus on the Biden family’s finances.
According to Breitbart, Indiana Republican Representative Jim Banks, who is seeking for a Senate seat in 2024, joined the initiative on Saturday.
“It’s time to impeach him. The evidence was already there, but this is further evidence that this is the type of high crimes and misdemeanors that should prevent this man from serving any day longer in the White House than what he already has. On top of that — man, I mean, this evidence this week proves that they impeached Donald Trump because he was right,” Banks told Breitbart, indicating he supports the House GOP effort to expunge from the record former President Donald Trump’s two impeachments.
“[W]e already knew that [the] Bidens are the most corrupt family ever to live in the White House, and that’s saying a lot after the Clintons lived there,” Banks said, adding, “what we saw more of this week is more proof and more evidence.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a Republican, made public last week an FBI document containing allegations of bribery against the president during his tenure as vice president.

“Either you do believe in the rule of law and you do believe that those who are corrupted abuse their power — like Joe Biden and the Biden family — should be held accountable or you don’t,” Banks told Breitbart.
“The evidence is clearly there that Joe Biden is the most corrupt president in American history and his abuse of power and Hunter Biden — the real story, the real story is that Joe Biden made so much money, millions of dollars from the corruption of Hunter Biden selling access to the ‘Big Guy,’ to Joe,” Banks said.
“I’m not in leadership. I don’t have influence over that. But count me in the growing column of Republicans in Congress who believe this is so important and absolutely necessary to move forward with impeachment hearings. Jim Jordan, the chairman, the powerful chairman, of the House Judiciary Committee, has to start this process,” he said.
Other Republicans also fired off their castigations of Biden.
I have been getting a lot of questions on whether or not Biden will be impeached:
Two GOP members have filed privileged motions to impeach Biden. One of the two has to call up the vote. Meaning they have to bring it to the floor thus forcing the vote.
Based on the evidence and…
