‘Definitely a discussion to have’: Jim Jordan says GOP must consider impeaching Biden if they retake House

After just over a year of gaffes, failed policies, wide-open borders, a dismal military withdrawal from Afghanistan, soaring inflation, and staggering gas prices, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) believes it’s time for the GOP to consider impeaching President Joe Biden.

As the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan will unseat Jerry Nadler as Committee chairman should the GOP regain the majority in November and would lead an impeachment trial against Biden should one occur.

“I think that’s definitely a discussion we have to have,” Jordan told The Washington Times, adding that every House Republican would need to agree to the plan.

“The conference has to decide,” said Jordan. “You have to have complete buy-in from the entire conference and the leadership of our conference.”

 

He’s already got some allies in the movement.

Back in September, Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH), joined by GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ) and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas, introduced articles of impeachment against Biden over the crisis at the Southern border, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and Biden’s attempts to expand the federal moratorium on evictions, the Washington Examiner reported at the time.

And on an episode of his podcast earlier this year, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) expressed his belief that, should the GOP regain the majority in Congress, they would move to remove the president.

“Yeah, I do think there’s a chance of that, whether it’s justified or not,” Cruz stated.

Republicans only need to pick up five seats to take control of the House, a goal many campaign analysts feel should be easily reached given the President’s disastrous approval ratings. And in the Senate, only Vice President Kamala Harris gives the Democrats control.

It is not inconceivable that a Red Wave could flip Democratic seats and sweep Congress.

According to an NBC News poll released Sunday, the president’s overall job approval rating has hit a new low of just 40 percent, and when asked which party should control Congress, Republicans took a two-point lead.

What’s more, the poll found that 71 percent of Americans believe the nation is currently heading in the wrong direction, and Biden has lost ground among key demographics, including Black respondents (down 2 points from January to 62 percent); women (down from 51 percent to 44 percent); Latinos (down nine points to 39 percent); and independents (down 4 points from 36 percent to 32 percent).

“What this poll says is that President Biden and Democrats are headed for a catastrophic election,” said Republican Public Opinions Strategy pollster Bill McInturff.

“You cannot get down to the low 40s in presidential approval, unless you have strained your own base,” McInturff said.

For Jordan, one only has to look as far as the U.S. – Mexico border for a reason to give Biden the boot.

“Just look at the border,” Jordan stated. “The president of the United States is supposed to enforce the laws along the border an they’re not doing it.”

According to the Washington Times, “More than 1.7 [million] illegal immigrants were encountered by border agents along the southwest border in 2021, nearly four times the number of illegal crossings the previous year, when Mr. Trump was president.”
