"'Most corrupt family to ever live in the White House! Impeach!' Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., wrote on Twitter, while Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., wrote, 'Read and understand just how deep the corruption goes. Biden should be thrown out of office. Impeach!'" Fox News reported.
"Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate and conservative firebrand Kari Lake suggested the president was guilty of 'extortion' and 'treason' in addition to bribery, and claimed former President Donald Trump was impeached for Biden's 'crimes,'" it added.

"Two GOP members have filed privileged motions to impeach Biden. One of the two has to call up the vote. Meaning they have to bring it to the floor thus forcing the vote," Rep. Anna Paulina (R-FL) tweeted.
"Based on the evidence and testimony I have seen as a member of oversight… Biden NEEDS to be impeached. He is compromised and his son is selling access to him," she added.
The calls complicate Biden's attempt to run for a second term as he faces the investigation into actions from his years as vice president under former President Barack Obama.
The concerns also include first son Hunter Biden, who could face charges for his alleged role in securing the business deals using his father's influence.
The calls for Biden's impeachment are unlikely to lead to any real concerns at this time, as the Senate is under a Democrat majority. Republicans could, however, join together to push a measure through the House similar to what Democrats did to former President Donald Trump.
The upcoming days will show whether the calls are for real or simply add to past criticisms of Biden.
