For several days now, Democrats have been camped out on the steps of the Capitol in a publicity stunt to get Joe Biden to extend the moratorium on evictions.
There has already been a Supreme Court ruling on this, stating that the power for such action lies with Congress, not with the administration.
Even so, Joe Biden has caved to leftists in the party, announcing a new moratorium knowing full well the order is illegal and unconstitutional.
Grounds for Impeachment?
There is a big difference between issuing an order and having it challenged in court versus issuing an order that has already been ruled unconstitutional and illegal.
That, however, is exactly what Joe Biden just did.
While making his announcement that he had caved to the left, Biden stated, “Look, the courts made it clear that the existing moratorium was not constitutional, that it wouldn’t stand.”
So, that means he knows any moratorium issued by the administration would literally be a violation of his oath of office, to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.
Even so, Biden is intent on breaking because of pressure from the left.
He is doing this for no other reason than to buy time, and even admitted that to be the case.
Biden stated, “At a minimum, by the time it gets litigated, it will probably give some additional time.”
Congress knew this deadline was coming at the end of July and did nothing to address it, so this falls on Congress, not the office of the president.
Second, the moment that order was issued by Biden, he committed an impeachable offense, period.
Instead of upholding the Constitution, Democrat members of Congress were actually encouraging Biden to do this, so a case could be made that they should all be impeached as well.
The problem, of course, is that Democrats hold the power right now and absolutely nothing will happen to any of them.
