Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (Colo.) introduced impeachment articles against President Joe Biden, arguing that he failed to fulfill his “constitutional duty to secure our southern border.”

Boebert revealed her intention to introduce articles of impeachment in this Congress as she had in the previous Congress in an exclusive interview with Fox News on Tuesday (June 13).

During the interview, she expressed that her decision to introduce impeachment articles now resulted from her “giving some other committees and leadership the opportunity to lead on this.”

While the Congresswoman is giving others a chance to act, Boebert warned that if leadership doesn’t “do something about the President’s failure to secure our southern border and keep the country safe,” she would introduce the articles of impeachment through a privileged motion.

She insisted that her ultimatum was a way to hold Biden accountable for his “failure to secure the southern border,” adding that she was doing this to ensure that if “committees and or leadership does not step up,” she would, “committees and or leadership does not step up.”

Boebert explained her impeachment process, saying, “Under House Rule IX,” it’s possible to present “certain pieces of legislation under a privileged motion,” noting that she would “go to the House floor and call up [her] articles of impeachment and read it in its entirety.”

Doing that, Boebert explained, would give “leadership… a maximum of two days to respond” to determine if the motion goes to a committee or the articles are voted on.

Boebert also co-sponsored her Tennessee GOP colleague Andy Ogles’ impeachment against Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday (June 12).
