This week, the House of Representatives is anticipated to vote on motions to impeach Vice President Joe Biden and to censure Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California.
Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert tweeted on Tuesday night that she will file a privileged motion to bring her articles of impeachment against Vice President Joe Biden to the floor for a vote.
Politico reports that Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is considering the same parliamentary maneuver to force a vote on her impeachment effort against the president.
Schiff was the subject of a resolution proposed last week by Florida Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, who argued he deserved punishment for promoting the discredited Steele dossier and for making false claims regarding collusion between the 2016 presidential campaign of former President Donald Trump and Russia.
Noting that some Republicans who voted against her resolution objected to the multimillion-dollar fine attached to the censure motion, Luna announced last week that she will introduce a new resolution this week — minus the fine — to censure Schiff and refer him to the House Ethics Committee.
According to Axios, Republican Representatives Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Marc Molinaro of New York have both indicated they will support Luna’s revised resolution.
According to Fox News, Luna said she and Republicans who opposed her resolution “came to terms and negotiations and the language that will censure and refer him to an ethics investigation because of the fact that he knowingly used his position as the chairman of House Intelligence to lie to the American people.”
Censure vote will be tomorrow. A majority of 20 are switching their vote to support the new resolution and some members who were out of town will be voting with us. Based on our count, Adam Schiff will be investigated by ethics and censured. Thank you to my colleagues for working…

Two articles of impeachment filed by Boebert against Biden center on the crisis at the southern border.
“Biden intentionally ceded command & control of our border to cartels. His dereliction of duty caused the deaths of over 900 Coloradans from fentanyl, enabled sex-trafficking, & allowed an invasion. I brought my articles of impeachment up via a privileged motion to force a vote,” she tweeted Tuesday.

More on this story via The Western Journal:
“It’s about Joe Biden’s failure to secure the southern border,” the congresswoman told Fox News.
“Given the severity of the violation of Joe Biden’s constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of the president, United States to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, this is something that we must do with our majorities in the House of Representatives,” Boebert said.
