Joe Biden has been rightly criticized for telling the Russians what we will and won’t do to help Ukraine. He’s promised Russian President Putin that we’d not put NATO forces or missiles in Ukraine and has personally blocked two NATO governments — Poland and Romania — from supplying the combat aircraft that the Ukrainians need most. McCarthy is adopting Biden’s strategy of preemptive surrender by saying he won’t impeach Biden.
On April 11, McCarthy told Fox News, “One thing we learned that the Democrats did is they — they used impeachment for political reasons. We’re not going to pick and choose just because somebody has power,” he said. “We’re going to uphold the law. At any time, if someone breaks the law and the ramification becomes impeachment, we would move towards that. But we’re not going to use it for political purposes. We will take the facts to wherever the facts go, because America’s been through too much with people playing politics with the concept of impeachment.” McCarthy added, “But if it rises to that level, we would have the law determine that.”
Biden rightly deserves to be impeached for failing to abide by his oath of office in ways that have severely damaged our nation.
The presidential oath requires him to both faithfully execute the office of the president and to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Biden has violated both parts of the oath.
First, Biden should be impeached for his opening our southern border to all comers, which is directly in violation of his oath to faithfully execute the presidential office.
There are two parts to executing the office of the president. One is to follow the congressionally established laws of our nation. The second is to enforce and administer those laws.
Second, and this is equally important, Biden has, by establishing the new “Disinformation Governing Board,” imposed a policy that violates the First Amendment.
When Mayorkas said our southern border was secure last week, the National Sheriffs’ Association wrote a letter to Senate leaders saying, in part, that, “We simply have no border left in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, or Southern California.”
