Tennessee Republican Andy Ogles moved to impeach Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Monday for failing their duties under the Constitution and abusing their power.

The articles accuse Harris of neglecting the southern border crisis "to the manifest injury of the people of the United States."

The vice president has long been criticized for failing to confront the issue despite her role as "border czar."

Impeachment filed

Ogles charges Harris with having "demonstrated extraordinary incompetence in the execution of her duties and responsibilities and an indifference to Americans suffering as a result of America’s ongoing southern border crisis."

"In permitting an invasion of illegal aliens and illicit drugs into the United States....Vice President Kamala Devi Harris has directly betrayed the public trust of the United States, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States," Ogles wrote.

Biden is also accused of having "directly facilitated the ongoing southern border crisis and endangered the people of the United States" by failing to secure the border, resulting in record illegal immigration and overdose deaths from fentanyl. 

The articles of impeachment also accuse Biden of "weaponizing" the government to cover up his family's overseas business dealings.

"The American people know they can’t depend on the so-called ‘Department of Justice’ to investigate the Biden family’s corruption, and so it’s up to the U.S. Congress to hold him accountable once and for all," Ogles said in a statement.

Biden under pressure

The articles are unlikely to go far without support from the full Republican House. But pressure has been building on Biden recently with new incriminating evidence surfacing about his family's deals.

According to an FBI memo recently viewed by Republicans, Biden was allegedly paid millions in bribes by a Ukrainian oligarch. The businessman kept secret recordings of his meetings with Joe Biden and his son Hunter as an "insurance policy," Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Ia.) alleged Monday.

Biden's controversies have some questioning if he will be his party's nominee in the 2024 presidential election.

As for Harris, she is also unpopular and widely seen as a liability to her boss.

According to Politico, a political action committee plans to invest$10 million to "prop up" Harris as she joins Biden on the 2024 campaign trail.
