Plans against Biden take shape: Florida GOP member announces intention to draft impeachment resolution against the president

Date:

Former President Donald Trump has publicly threatened President Joe Biden, asserting that Biden and his family could face criminal prosecutions once Biden is no longer in office, unless the Supreme Court grants Trump immunity in his ongoing legal disputes. Trump’s warning was linked to his intention to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Biden family, dependent on the Supreme Court’s decision about his immunity case. A few days later, President Biden “received” another threat that could have a significant impact on his political future from a Florida Republican.

Florida Republican’s Reciprocal Threat

Five years ago, House Democrats impeached Trump for allegedly threatening to withhold military aid from Ukraine unless its President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, investigated Joe and Hunter Biden for alleged corruption. Now, with Biden as president, a Florida Republican is looking to mirror that scenario.

Plans for Impeachment Related to Aid to Israel

Rep. Cory Mills from Florida intends to draft an impeachment resolution against President Biden for not sending specified military aid to Israel during its conflict with Hamas. A report by the Tampa Free Press reveals that Israeli officials claimed Biden had threatened to stop arms shipments if Israel invaded Rafah, a key Hamas stronghold and the location of more than 1 million displaced Palestinians

Biden acknowledged this decision, which came just after a $26 billion military aid package was agreed upon for Israel. The following day, Mills, from New Smyrna Beach, announced his plans to impeach Biden, accusing him of undermining a crucial ally by withholding guided missile shipments to coerce Israel into altering its military strategy.

Mills’ resolution accuses Biden of abuse of power, stating, “Using the powers of his high office, President Biden solicited a ‘quid pro quo’ with the foreign government of Israel by withholding precision guided weapons shipments in order to try and extract military policy changes.”

Mills commented, “These types of actions are what President Trump was accused of and impeached over by Democrats. They called it ‘Quid Pro Quo.’ Perhaps [it] should be renamed to ‘Quid Pro Joe.’” Mills said, “These are the same accusations made against President Trump, which resulted in his impeachment by Democrats. The same must happen for Joe Biden, which is why we’re drawing up articles of impeachment now.”

Support from Republicans for Impeachment

Sen. Tom Cotton from Arkansas expressed support for Mills’ position, stating on X that “The House has no choice but to impeach Biden based on the Trump-Ukraine precedent of withholding foreign aid to help with reelection. Only with Biden, it’s true.”

The Controversy Over Biden’s Decision

Biden’s decision to withhold weapons from Israel if it invaded Rafah was confirmed earlier this week. This decision has sparked outrage among many supporters of Israel, including congressional Republicans like Mills. “Biden is threatening our ally Israel after funding approvals in Congress if they do not stop operations to target Hamas,” Mills posted on X.

In contrast to Trump’s situation, where he allegedly pressured Ukraine to investigate Biden and withheld aid as leverage—a scenario confirmed by a Democratic investigation and deemed illegal by the Government Accountability Office—Mills claims Biden’s actions mirror this scenario, but with Israel.

Biden Administration Defends Its Position

Regarding the impeachment resolution Mills plans to present, the administration defends its stance by arguing that a wide-scale bombing campaign in Rafah would not effectively defeat Hamas, according to White House spokesperson John Kirby. “Smashing into Rafah, in [Biden’s] view, will not advance that objective, will not get to that sustainable and enduring defeat of Hamas,” White House spokesperson John Kirby said Thursday, according to the New York Times. Despite delaying the shipment of 3,500 bombs to Israel, officials believe Israel has sufficient resources to proceed with its operations in Rafah.
