WASHINGTON DC – Today, U.S. Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) released the following statement after co-sponsoring the articles of impeachment of Representative Bob Gibbs (OH-07):
“Since January 20, 2021, Joe Biden has only plunged our nation into a state of retrograde and heightened vulnerability while thwarting the rule of law at every moment,” said Babin. “He failed miserably in his duties as Commander-in-Chief and violated his oath to defend the US Constitution by:
- Stop the construction of a barrier along our southern border, exacerbate the crisis of illegal immigration and free thousands of undocumented migrants infected with COVID-19 in our country;
- Unilaterally extend the federal moratorium on evictions despite a warning from the Supreme Court, overstep its presidential authority and violate the system of separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution; and
- Aiding and encouraging the Taliban by failing to secure our military resources and abandoning thousands of Americans and allies without a plan in place for their evacuation or assurances for their safety.
“For these reasons, I joined Representative Gibbs in bringing these articles of impeachment to the House of Representatives.”
