Neither effort will go far in a House where Democrats hold a slim majority, but the latest effort shows how the introduction of articles of impeachment is becoming more common in today's polarized House.

Republicans are hoping to win back the House majority in next year's midterms, however, and GOP leaders could face pressure in such a scenario to move impeachment articles backed by some of their most conservative members. 

The latest impeachment effort was first reported by The Washington Examiner

In the new articles, a copy of which were shared with The Hill, the House members argued that Biden's conduct “warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

Gibbs also tweeted about the introduction of the articles Tuesday night.

Trump in January became the first U.S. president in history to be impeached twice following his actions ahead of the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. He was previously impeached in 2019 after records revealed that he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family amid his 2020 presidential campaign.
