A majority Republican House voted 219-208 to impeach President Biden on Thursday. The articles of impeachment will now go to two congressional committees.
The articles of impeachment were authored by Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert.
Boebert described Thursday’s House vote as a “historic action,” but the AP noted that neither of the two committees have an “obligation to act.”

According to the Associated Press, President Biden has been charged with “high crimes and misdemeanors”.
The Bidens are accused of accepting $10 million in bribes from Ukraine energy company Burisma. Hunter Biden, who has no energy experience, was on Burisma’s payroll.
If Biden is impeached, he will join a small fraternity of disgraced presidents, including former Presidents Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, who was impeached twice.
