Among those critics was another figure intent on impeaching Biden — Green — who was openly angry that his own resolution was undercut by his Republican colleague.
“I’ve donated to you, I’ve protected you. But you’ve been a little beggar to me,” Green told Bobert on the House floor, according to a witness. “You copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to support them.”
But Bobert instead wanted to talk about his reasons for impeaching Biden, which are myriad.
Bobert argued to Hannity that the president was “trampling on our Constitution” after revoking former President Donald Trump’s border laws.

Bobert replied with a smile, suggesting that he had no time to play small games.
“Sean, I’m not putting my life on hold, I’m here to put my four boys and now my grandson here to fight with people, Coloradans who have been victimized by Democrats, to legislate and be effective for Coloradans. ‘Policy,’ replied Bobert.
“Marjorie is not my enemy,” Bobert added, echoing his response to The Daily Beast. “Joe Biden’s policy, the Democratic Party, that’s my enemy, and I’m fighting right now, and I’m going to do everything I can to hold them in check, hold them accountable, and take our country back from this extreme extremism that we’re seeing.”

Bobert told The Daily Beast at the time: “Marjorie is not my enemy. I am here to protect our children and their descendants. Joe Biden and the Democrats are destroying our country. My priorities are to fix their bad policies and save America.
Green replied: “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.”

“I know those two women, I respect and love those two women because they are fighting for our country and you know what? You look back at our founding fathers and you know they had moments where they were a little bit at each other’s throats, but we’re all going for the same mission, which is to save our country. I think it worked.
Lake added: “We’re shot to save our country, and when you’re shot, sometimes the right words don’t come out. That’s OK. We’re on the same mission. I love that they’re fighting over who gets to step forward to impeach Joe Biden, and that’s a great, noble thing to fight about.”
