U.S. Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) has filed four articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden for alleged high crimes and misdemeanors, including bribery, extortion, obstruction of justice, fraud and financial involvement in drug and prostitution transactions.
“It’s long past time to impeach Joe Biden,” said Rep. Steube in a press release last Friday. “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.”
“The evidence continues to mount by the day – the Biden Crime Family has personally profited off Joe’s government positions through bribery, threats, and fraud. Joe Biden must not be allowed to continue to sit in the White House, selling out our country,” Steube said.
On Friday Rep. Steube also introduced the “Helping Understand Narcotics Traces at the Executive Residence (HUNTER) Act, a proposed bill that would require a report from the Director of the Secret Service on their investigation into the discovery of a packet of cocaine at the White House in July.
The Secret Service closed their investigation 11 days after the cocaine was found without being able to identify a suspect or obtain leads from finger prints, DNA analysis, or surveillance footage.
The HUNTER Act would require the Secret Service report to include what steps the agency takes to avoid controlled substances from coming into the White House, a full account of their investigation, and recommendations on how Congress can provide oversight or resources to prevent illicit usage of controlled substances in the Executive Branch.
“The United States Secret Service (USSS) refers to themselves as one of the most elite law enforcement agencies in the world. It’s completely unacceptable that the USSS has failed to find who is responsible for bringing cocaine into one of the most secure buildings in the world,” said Steube.
“The American people deserve answers. My legislation demands information on the closed investigation into the cocaine found at the White House in July and focuses on how Congress can provide oversight to prevent future illicit usage of controlled substances in the White House,” Steube said.
Rep. Steube announced in April that he is endorsing Donald Trump for president in 2024, and was one of several Florida Republicans to join the former president at a campaign stop at the Iowa State Fair over the weekend.
A July 28-Aug. 1 New York Times GOP Primary poll showed Trump leading Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Iowa by 24 points — a narrower margin than the 39 points gap between the two candidates in the Real Clear Politics polling average.

ARTICLE 1: ABUSE OF POWER: BRIBERY, HOBBS ACT EXTORTION, & HONEST SERVICES FRAUD
Robert Hunter Biden (Hunter Biden) and James Biden sold access to then Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. (Joe Biden) while he was in office from 2009 to 2017 and sold promised access to a future Biden Presidential Administration while he was out of office from 2017 to 2021. Hunter and James appear to have promised official actions by Joe Biden in return for payments and business opportunities from foreign and domestic business partners. Joe Biden assisted by making appearances, phone calls, meeting with the “business partners,” and knowingly allowing his family members to promise access to him and actions by him in furtherance of these schemes. Hunter Biden threatened business partners that official actions could be taken against them if they did not meet terms or make payments. In at least one instance, Hunter implied that Joe Biden was aware of these threats and willing to assist in enforcing the threats, potentially through official actions. Hunter Biden attempted to enrich himself and the Biden family by threatening official actions from his father, who he claims was willing to assist in the scheme.
These acts are abuses of power as well as the following federal crimes or conspiracy to commit the following federal crimes: Bribery of Public Officials, 18 USC § 201; Hobbs Act Extortion “Under Color of Official Right,” 18 USC § 1951; Honest Services Fraud relating to use of official position, 18 USC § 1346.
ARTICLE 2: OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE
According to testimony from IRS whistleblowers, members of the Biden campaign improperly colluded with Justice Department (DOJ) officials to improperly interfere with investigations into tax crimes alleged to have been committed by Hunter Biden.
These acts constitute an abuse of power as well as Obstruction of Justice, 18 USC §§ 1505, 1510, 1512.
ARTICLE 3: FRAUD
James Biden recruited “investors” for business ventures that ultimately failed. There is evidence to suggest that these investment opportunities were sold to investors based on false and fraudulent pretenses and promises. Access to Joe Biden and indications that Joe Biden supported these schemes were used to lure investors into the schemes.
These acts constitute fraud or conspiracy to commit fraud in violation of 18 USC §§ 1943, 1949.
ARTICLE 4: FINANCIAL INVOLVEMENT IN DRUG AND PROSTITUTION
Joe Biden and Hunter Biden have a long history of comingled and intertwined finances. Between 2010 and 2019 thousands of dollars of Biden family money was spent on illegal drug transactions and prostitution.
These acts constitute violations of or conspiracy to violate federal drug laws at 21 USC §§ 841, 842, 843, 846 and federal prostitution laws at 18 USC §§ 2421, 2421A, 2422.
