This week, conservative commentator Mark Levin appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” where he outlined his stance on the Biden impeachment inquiry. On Wednesday, the House of Representatives moved to authorize the inquiry into the president, with Republicans rallying behind the vote.
Levin opened the discussion by addressing the Republican focus on the financially related allegations against President Biden. The GOP has maintained there are grounds for impeachment based on accusations that the president was inappropriately involved in Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
“But anyway, let me go on. First, I want to talk about impeachment here, and I want to say to the three guests you had on three great chairmen, I think you really need to focus in, I have no opposition to focusing on the financial fraud and the selling of public office by the Biden family, but it gets very complicated,” the conservative icon said.
However, Levin explained that he believes there are more pressing matters that the impeachment inquiry should focus on. He continued, “So that should be article three of the eventual list of impeachable offenses because I think this president’s impeachable. Why? Because of what should be article one. Let me explain. Article 2 Section 3 of the United States Constitution compels a president that he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed. Laws be faithfully executed.”
Setting up his point, Levin explains the Constitutional mandate for the executive branch to enforce the nation’s law to maintain the political system’s functionality. “So the Constitution says you may not like certain laws Joe Biden but you’re going to enforce them, otherwise you’re destroying separation of powers in the power of the legislature. You can’t just blow off the legislature with executive orders, or directives or something of that sort,” he said.
Levin proceeded to completely torch Joe Biden on his failure to secure the southern border, illustrating the disastrous consequences of the president’s incompetence. The conservative personality further provided historical legal precedent, suggesting Biden’s conduct is that of “high crime,” creating irrefutable grounds for impeachment.
“Joe Biden has violated every single federal immigration law that’s on the books. He’s doing it every day. He’s doing it intentionally. The border is wide open.The American people are less safe. Terrorists are trying to get in. Criminals are getting in. Toxic drugs are getting in.People are dying. People are being raped. They’re being sold into sex slavery. Now, why is all that important? It’s important because it’s an impeachable offense. I just read you the two sections of the Constitution where he’s required to uphold the law. He is defying and undermining the law.”
“And you look at the impeachment clause, what is a high crime? Does a high crime means a president goes out and kills a whole bunch of people? No, well, what does it mean? High in the legal common vocabulary of the 17th and 18th centuries of high crimes. This is what the framers looked at — is the activity by or against those who have special duties acquired by taking an oath of office that is not shared with ordinary persons? He has committed a high crime — multiple high crimes by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Levin said.
