Vernon Jones says he will impeach Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on day one if elected

Republican congressional candidate Vernon Jones has said he will introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on his first day in Congress if elected.

The Trump-endorsed Jones took to Twitter on Wednesday and appeared to pledge to present articles of impeachment, adding that he would vote for former President Donald Trump to become Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Some Republicans have also suggested that President Biden could be impeached if the GOP wins control of the House in November, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) saying there are “multiple reasons” to consider it.

“On day one in Congress, I will be filing articles of impeachment against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for betraying the public trust,” Jones tweeted.

“Then I will vote for President Trump to be president and invite my colleagues to join me. It’s time to throw out the old playbook,” he added.

According to the order of presidential succession, if the president and vice president were removed from office, the speaker of the House would then become president.

Jones is not alone in expressing his willingness to introduce articles of impeachment against Biden. Both Representatives Lauren Boebert of Colorado’s 3rd District and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia’s 14th District filed articles of impeachment.

On December 31, 2021, Senator Cruz said on his show Verdict with Ted Cruz“I think there are potentially multiple grounds for impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter anarchy of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border.”

Jones is running in Georgia’s 10th congressional district hoping to succeed Republican Rep. Jody Hice. Hice is running for Georgia secretary of state against incumbent Republican Brad Raffensperger.

On Monday, Jones announced he was stepping down from the Georgia gubernatorial race and endorsed former Sen. David Perdue, who has won support from former President Trump.

Perdue issues a primary challenge to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. Both Kemp and Raffensperger have come under fire from Trump for their roles in the 2020 presidential election.

Both men defended the integrity of Georgia’s election and challenged unfounded allegations of massive voter fraud and other irregularities.

Trump endorsed Jones in his home run in a video posted to Rumble on Wednesday.

“He’s an American fighter first, who will never back down from the establishment or the radical left,” Trump said of Jones.

Jones said in a statement that he was “proud to have the approval, confidence and support of President Trump as I seek to represent the people of Georgia’s 10th Congressional District.”

“The America First movement is alive and well! The team better get ready! he said.

Jones was previously a Democrat and served as CEO of DeKalb County, Georgia from 2001 to 2009. He served as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2017 to 2021.

Newsweek asked the Vernon Jones campaign for comment.
