Each of the following actions, failures to act, and refusals to act constitutes an impeachable offense. Taken together, they justify President Biden’s impeachment by the full U.S. House of Representatives as soon as possible and his conviction by the U.S. Senate soon afterwards. The first item is the most immediate and urgent one.
1) Reckless, hostile and aggressive provocations against China.
On June 24, 2022, a U.S. spy plane provocatively flew over the Taiwan Strait. The next day, the U.S. Navy sent a warship, the USS Benfold, to the South China Sea. According to Jeremy Kuzmarov, sending U.S. warships into the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait violated international law, specifically the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson of the People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command, slammed the spy plane’s flight path as being “intentional,” whose purpose was to “disrupt the regional situation and endanger the cross-Straits peace and stability. We firmly oppose this,” she said.
When President Biden made a commitment in October, 2021 to back Taiwan militarily, he effectively overturned the One China Policy – established when the U.S. resumed diplomatic relations with China in 1979 – that recognized Beijing to be the legitimate government of all China, including Taiwan.

According to Jeremy Kuzmarov, “Under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which China has ratified but the U.S. has not, nations are entitled to territorial waters stretching 12 nautical miles (22 km) from their coast. They may also claim an exclusive economic zone (EEZ) stretching another 200 nautical miles – beyond that are the high seas. At its widest, the Taiwan Strait spans about 220 nautical miles; however, at its narrowest, it is 70 nautical miles – meaning recent U.S. actions are illegal.
If China had decided to shoot down the U.S. plane or sink the warship, it would arguably have had the legal right to do so under the UN Charter, which has been the foundation of international law since the UN was founded in 1945. What would the Biden Administration have done next? Launched missiles at China or its warships? The conflict could quickly have escalated into a full-scale nuclear war that might kill every person on earth. Extinction is forever.
To provoke a military conflict with China, Russia, or any other country is an impeachable offense.
2) Turning the United States into a co-belligerent with Ukraine against Russia.
On April 19, 2022, James W. Carden, a former adviser to the US-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission at the US Department of State, wrote an article in which he concluded that “the US is, and has been for some time, a co-belligerent in the war.” See https://asiatimes.com/2022/04/us-a-co-belligerent-in-ukraine-war-legal-expert-says/
“Bruce Fein, a constitutional expert and former associate attorney general in the Ronald Reagan administration, told me this week that in his view, ‘the United States and several NATO members have become co-belligerents with Ukraine against Russia by systematic and massive assistance to its military forces to defeat Russia.’ According to Fein, the US and its NATO allies are now vulnerable to attack by ‘an enemy belligerent,’ meaning Russia, because of their ‘systematic or substantial violations of a neutral’s duties of impartiality and non-participation in the conflict.’”
To violate America’s duties of impartiality and non-participation in the Ukraine conflict is an impeachable offense.
3. Rejecting Russia’s reasonable peace proposal in December, 2021.
On December 17, 2021, Russia published a draft agreement on peace and mutual security to the United States. It contained eight articles, all of which would have led to reductions in US-Russian tensions and the likelihood of armed conflicts in Europe and the rest of the world. See https://thesaker.is/russian-draft-documents-on-legal-security-guarantees-from-the-united-states-and-nato/
Some of the articles were:
- The Parties, Russia and the USA, “shall not implement security measures adopted by each Party individually or in the framework of an international organization, military alliance or coalition that could undermine core security interests of the other Party”…
- “The Parties shall not use the territories of other States with a view to preparing or carrying out an armed attack against the other Party or other actions affecting core security interests of the other Party.”
- “The United States of America shall undertake to prevent further eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and deny accession to the Alliance to the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics”…
- “The Parties shall refrain from deploying nuclear weapons outside their national territories and return such weapons already deployed outside their national territories at the time of the entry into force of the Treaty to their national territories”…
The Biden Administration’s flat refusal to enter into serious negotiations leading to a peace agreement with Russia, based on Russia’s proposal, led directly to the current military conflict in Ukraine and constitutes an impeachable offense.
4. Helping Saudi Arabia massacre and starve millions of civilians in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia has been waging a murderous, illegal war of aggression against Yemen since 2015. The United States has been helping its ally, Saudi Arabia, for the last seven years.
Every U.S. President who served during that period – Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Joe Biden – has been a war criminal for helping Saudi Arabia commit international aggression, which is “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole,” according to the judgment of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg after World War Two. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_aggression
After taking the oath of office in January, 2021, President Biden was legally obligated to end that war of aggression. He should have used his influence over the Government of Saudi Arabia to compel them to end their aggression. If they had refused, he should have stopped all cooperation with the Saudi dictatorship (except the purchase of oil from Saudi Arabia by private oil companies), including stopping all weapons exports, military training missions, intelligence cooperation, and all other forms of government-to-government cooperation. President Biden failed to do so, and that failure constitutes an impeachable offense.
5. Illegally keeping U.S. troops in Iraq and Syria.
In 2003, the U.S. illegally invaded Iraq, which constituted a massive war crime. Every U.S. President since 2003 has been a war criminal, and every newly-elected President should have ended that illegal, unjust war soon after taking the oath of office. President Biden failed to order all of our troops, mercenaries and intelligence operatives out of Iraq, and that failure constitutes an impeachable offense.
In 2011, the U.S., Turkey, Israel, and other countries committed illegal aggression against Syria by supporting terrorist groups including al Qaeda, al Nusra, and later ISIS in their campaign to overthrow the Government of Syria. Everything the U.S. has done in Syria since 2011 has constituted a massive war crime. Every U.S. President since 2011 has been a war criminal, and every newly-elected President should have ended that illegal, unjust war soon after taking the oath of office. President Biden failed to order all of our troops, mercenaries and intelligence operatives out of Syria, and that failure constitutes an impeachable offense.
