A Republican congressman could no longer ignore the "incredible" amount of evidence being unearthed by an ongoing House investigation – so he filed an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden.

Greg Steube, who represents Florida's 17th District in the U.S. House, serves on the House Ways and Means Committee as well as the Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Recently he filed four articles of impeachment against President Biden, including bribery, obstruction of justice, fraud, and financial involvement in drugs and prostitution.

"It's long past time to impeach Joe Biden," Steube said in a press release. "He has undermined the integrity of his office, brought disrepute on the Presidency, betrayed his trust as President, and acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice at the expense of America's citizens."

During an appearance Thursday on Washington Watch, the Florida Republican made the case that the Bidens have clearly enriched themselves.

"The Biden family got over $20 million dollars from Ukraine, Russia, the Chinese Communist Party – [and] that coupled with the testimony we had from Devon Archer, from Tony Bobulinski, from all the IRS whistleblowers – to me it is an incredible amount of evidence of crimes that have been committed, corruption that has been committed, bribery that has been committed. And I couldn't just stand back and allow this to just continue.

"In my opinion, it's time to start the impeachment inquiry – and I thought by filing the resolution that would start the process."

Steube is hopeful House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan will start the impeachment inquiry when Congress gets back in session next month.

Another radical Obama?

Some have speculated that the Democratic Party wants to replace Biden on the 2024 ticket, citing questions surrounding his health (he would be 82 at the beginning of a second term) and his low approval ratings. Names mentioned as possible replacements include California Governor Gavin Newsom, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and – of course – Vice President Kamala Harris.

Interestingly, there's even been some buzz about former First Lady Michelle Obama being drafted to head up the ticket. Conservative columnist Robert Knight says conservatives shouldn't be worried if that happens.

"She's just as radical as [her husband] Barack Obama – and is that going to fly in a country that is up to its ears in inflation, thanks to Democrats, to radical school policies, to gender changes, and all kinds of illegal moves against parental rights?" he wonders.

"I think the Republicans have a huge arsenal of weapons no matter who gets the nomination," Knight continues. "So, I wouldn't be afraid of Michelle Obama. Sure, she will quickly round up the black vote, but that's a decreasing portion of the vote."

And Knight says some people suspect Barack Obama may be the "puppet master" behind Joe Biden – and suggests the GOP take advantage of that.

"I think the Republicans ought to make it clear they think Obama's behind the scenes of the Biden trainwreck that we're seeing – and if the American people want more of the same, they'll elect somebody like Michelle Obama," he advises.
