Not content to wait while his Republican colleagues stalled, Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) on Friday introduced articles of impeachment against embattled President Joe Biden.
The wheels of Congress are turning slowly to hold Biden accountable for several allegations of financial corruption. Multiple committees are building cases against the Democrat, but Steube said the time to wait is over.
In a statement, Steube declared, “It’s long past time to impeach Joe Biden. He has undermined the integrity of his office, brought disrepute to the Presidency, betrayed his trust as President, and acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice.”
Four articles alleging high crimes and misdemeanors were filed against Biden. There have been as many as 15 impeachment resolutions submitted by congressional Republicans against the president.
The first article accused Biden of accepting bribes and committing fraud. The second charged the president obstructed justice based on IRS whistleblower testimony that the administration colluded with federal officials to interfere with the investigation into alleged tax crimes.
Rep. Greg Steube just introduced 4 Articles of Impeachment against Joe Biden for alleged Bribery, Obstruction of Justice, Fraud and financial involvement in drugs and prostitution.

The third and fourth accuse the Democrat of fraud and funding his son’s drug use and liasons with prostitutes.
Meanwhile, the House investigation into international financial misdeeds by presidential son Hunter Biden continues. The probe suffered an unexpected blow last week when the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Hunter.
Most reasonable observers recognized it as a smokescreen to shield the DOJ from further House scrutiny.
Steube made it clear that he believed the evidence mounting against the Biden family is more than enough to prosecute. He said the president and his relatives “personally profited off Joe’s government positions through bribery, threats and fraud.
He added that the Democrat needs to be removed from office as he is “selling out our country.”
On the same day as the introduction of his articles of impeachment, the Florida Republican proposed the Helping Understand Narcotics Traces at the Executive Residence (HUNTER) Act.
This bill is aimed at forcing the Secret Service chief to issue a report on use of illegal drugs at the White House. It followed the Secret Service closing its probe into cocaine found in the president’s residence in July without naming a person of interest.
