This White House is the most corrupt administration in modern history.

It is high time to impeach President Biden.

The Biden family’s rampant self-dealing, bribery and influence-peddling around the world is as shameless as it is obvious. Nobody even disputes the evidence anymore. Instead, they simply claim that it is “old news.”

After more than a year of claiming that all the evidence of family corruption contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop was “stolen” or “Russian disinformation” aimed at swaying the U.S. election, the media now admits that it is all true. But, they insist, it is no longer newsworthy since it was already reported — “reported” by some even as the media strenuously censored the news in order to get Mr. Biden elected.

The only people more corrupt than the Biden Crime Family are members of the media who lied to protect them and promote them into the White House. The craven Bidens would be powerless without the dishonest media.

Instead, the Bidens are multimillionaires. 

After a lifetime on a federal government salary and a professor’s income, Mr. Biden and the first lady claimed $13 million in income over a two-year period before entering the White House. Nice work if you can get it. All the Bidens’ sleazy corruption — sprawling from Ukraine to China — has gotten so bad that even Democrats are starting to turn on the old codger. That — along with the media’s sudden admission that all the evidence is real and accurate — spells doom for Mr. Biden.

This presents a sterling political opportunity for Republicans. They should immediately begin preparing impeachment proceedings against the weakened Mr. Biden so that the minute they take control of Congress next January, they can get right to removing the president.

A powerful reason for starting now is to incorporate the impeachment effort into this November’s elections. By doing so, Republicans will create a mandate when they win.

However, Republicans should not impeach Mr. Biden over the obvious “high crimes and misdemeanors” he and his brother and his son have committed through the family’s vast conspiracy of financial corruption. That would miss an opportunity to broaden Republicans’ mandate into something even more important and something that would make a real difference in the lives of regular voters — both Democrat and Republican voters.

Republicans should impeach Mr. Biden over his refusal to enforce American laws that protect our borders.

Since taking office, Mr. Biden issued executive orders dismantling the border, leaving it wide open to a historic invasion. He has intentionally subverted the laws of congress. He has aided and comforted our foreign enemies by publicly inviting illegals to swarm into our country.

He has purposefully undermined the constitution he swore to uphold and defend. It is just that simple.

Mr. Biden’s treasonous actions have left our borders wide open. The brave men and women who wear the Border Patrol uniform and risk their lives every day to protect our borders are demoralized — if they are lucky.

The unlucky ones are vilified and persecuted by this administration for doing their job.

Yet Mr. Biden is not finished. Border Patrol agents predict that with this administration’s latest policy changes, hundreds of thousands more will be pouring across our border every month by summertime.

That will be a travesty for America. But it will also be prime political season.

If former President Donald Trump taught Washington nothing else, he taught politicians that defending the constitution by upholding the law and enforcing our borders is a huge political winner.

Republicans in Congress should put Mr. Biden on notice now and start defending the constitution the president has already shredded.
