Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas rightly stated Friday that President Joe Biden’s defiance of a Supreme Court ruling regarding an eviction moratorium is “absolutely impeachable.”
Biden acknowledged on Tuesday that a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention order extending a moratorium on evictions, which had expired July 31, was likely unconstitutional and in violation of a Supreme Court ruling.
“The bulk of the constitutional scholarship says that it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster,” Biden told reporters, according to an official White House transcript of his remarks. “But there are several key scholars who think that it may and it’s worth the effort. But the present — you could not — the court has already ruled on the present eviction moratorium.”
