Joe Biden on Thursday spoke to reporters after driving an electric Jeep Wrangler around the South Lawn of the White House.
Biden admitted the CDC’s decision to unilaterally extend the eviction moratorium for 60 days was likely unconstitutional.
Even worse, Biden said the quiet part out loud and admitted the point of extending the moratorium was to get the case caught up in the courts to buy time.
“I can’t guarantee you the court won’t rule that we don’t have that authority but at least we’ll have the ability to, if we have to appeal, to keep this going for a month-at least. I hope longer and in the process, by that time we’ll get a lot of…”

The CDC on Tuesday announced a new 60-day moratorium on evictions.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky acted independently and signed the order on Tuesday.
‘This moratorium is the right thing to do to keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings where COVID-19 spreads,’ Walensky said. ‘Such mass evictions and the attendant public health consequences would be very difficult to reverse.’
“This order will expire on October 3, 2021 and applies in United States counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels of SARS-CoV-2,” according to a statement, which adds that the moratorium “allows additional time for rent relief to reach renters and to further increase vaccination rates.”
There are steep criminal penalties for landlords who break this order signed by Walensky.
– Potential $100,000 fine and 1 year in jail if eviction doesn’t result in death
– Up to $250,000 fine and 1 year in jail if evicted person dies
Joe Biden knowingly violated the Constitution and admitted he is banking on the case getting caught up in the courts to push through his agenda.
