House GOP averts direct vote on Biden impeachment:
The Republican-controlled House on Thursday voted to refer a resolution impeaching President Biden to a pair of committees.
Why it matters: It marks a successful GOP maneuver to sidestep an up-or-down impeachment vote that many in the conference were loath to take.
Driving the news: The House voted 219-208 along party lines to refer the measure to the Homeland Security and Judiciary Committees.
  • The resolution, which targets Biden's handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, was introduced by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a member of the right-wing Freedom Caucus.
What they’re saying: Homeland Security Committee Chair Mark Green (R-Texas) said the effect of the vote will be to expand the scope of his committee’s investigation into Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.--->READ MORE HERE

House Republicans send Boebert’s impeachment resolution against Biden to two committees:
The House voted Thursday to send articles of impeachment against President Biden to two committees, after Speaker Kevin McCarthy headed off an immediate floor vote to impeach the president.
The vote, which accuses Mr. Biden with high crimes and misdemeanors for mishandling border security, sends the impeachment resolution to the House Homeland Security and Judiciary committees.
The measure passed along party lines, 219 to 208, and sidelined an immediate effort by Rep. Lauren Boebert, Colorado Republican, to bring the privileged resolution to the floor for a vote.
Mr. McCarthy, California Republican, who was blindsided by Mrs. Boebert‘s impeachment resolution, urged her to take a more thorough approach.
Mr. McCarthy told reporters that sending the resolution to the committees “doesn’t do anything to harm the current investigations going forward.”
“I think the conference continues to work together [on] all the ideas we want to put forth,” Mr. McCarthy said.
Mrs. Boebert told reporters she was satisfied with the outcome of her resolution being sent to both committees. --->READ MORE HERE
