On Friday, August 11th Republican Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. These articles of impeachment come about after weeks of ongoing investigations and questioning into various alleged crimes committed by the Biden family, Hunter and Joe biden in particular. The alleged crimes by the Biden family are as follows in the impeachment articles:


Article I of the impeachment legislation addresses the accusations against Hunter and Joe Biden in relation to the Burisma scandal where Joe Biden had previously denied that he was involved in Hunter’s business dealings overseas. However recent evidence from witnesses and texts between Hunter Biden and his business partners seem to contradict the President’s claims and indicate that he did in fact play a role in Hunter’s business dealings during his term as Vice President.


 “ARTICLE I: ABUSE OF POWER, BRIBERY, HOBBS ACT EXTORTION & HONEST SERVICES FRAUD

Robert Hunter Biden (Hunter Biden) and James Biden sold access to then Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., (Joe Biden) while he was in office from 2009 to 2017 and sold promised access to a future Biden Presidential Administration while he was out of office from 2017 to 2021. 


Hunter and James Biden appear to have promised official actions by Joe Biden in return for payments and business opportunities from foreign and domestic business partners. Joe Biden assisted by making appearances, phone calls, meeting with the business partners, and knowingly allowing his family members to promise access to him and actions by him in furtherance of these schemes.


Hunter Biden threatened business partners that official actions could be taken against them if they did not meet terms or make payments. In at least one instance, Hunter implied that Joe Biden was aware of these threats and willing to assist in enforcing the threats, potentially through official actions. Hunter Biden attempted to enrich himself and the Biden family by threatening official actions from his father, who he claims was willing to assist in these schemes.”


The impeachment articles state that “These acts are abuses of power as well as the following Federal crimes or conspiracy to commit the following Federal crimes: Bribery of Public Officials, 18 U.S.C. 201; Hobbs Act Extortion “Under Color of Official Right,” 18 U.S.C. 1951; Honest Services Fraud relating to use of official position, 18 U.S.C. 1346.”

Articles II and III recount other various crimes in relation to failures by the justice department to investigate these alleged crimes in the past. The articles also mention thousands of dollars of the Biden family fortune being spent on prostitution and drug related activities between 2010 and 2019.

The House of Representatives is not due to be back in session until September, which is when the House is expected to take action on filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. The articles have currently been given to the House Judiciary Committee.
