Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Will File Articles Of Impeachment Against Biden
Recently elected Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday opened up about his plans to file articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on his first full day as the President of the United States next week. She voted against President Donald Trump's impeachment Wednesday on the charge of inciting an insurrection.
Making an appearance on Newsmax on Wednesday, Greene said she intends to introduce a measure to impeach the incoming president on Jan. 21, just one day after his Jan. 20 inauguration. Taking to her Twitter account, she shared a clip from the interview, noting that 75 million Americans are angry about the lack of action.
She went on to suggest that it is time to take a stand and that she is proud of Republican voters who have been ignored. Speaking to Newsmax’s Greg Kelly, Greene explained her decision to file articles of impeachment on Biden, saying it is imperative that the leaders are held accountable.
She noted that America couldn't have a president who will not shy away from abusing the power of the office of the presidency and be easily influenced by foreign governments, Ukrainian energy companies, and Chinese energy companies. She, however, did not reveal what the articles might charge the incoming president.
Greene cited an argument pushed by several Trump supporters during the final months of his reelection campaign, that while vice president Biden issued threats to withholding loan to Ukraine if then-prosecutor general Viktor Shokin wasn't replaced. It is worth noting that Shokin was investigating the Burisma Holdings founder, of which Hunter Biden had been a member of the board since 2014.
The U.S. said it would withhold nearly $1 billion in loan guarantees until Shokin was replaced as prosecutor general. Taylor Greene shared a clip from a 2018 Council on Foreign Relations conference on Twitter, writing the American public will not tolerate this.
While Biden did press Ukraine to remove Shokin in Mar. 2016, this came amid a wider criticism that Shokin was avoiding to pursue allegations of corruption among American politicians, The Hill reported.
The Democrat said he didn't act with his son, Hunter's business interests in mind. It is also worth noting that there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing by either of the Bidens. There is also no evidence that Hunter's work had any impact on U.S. policy.
Greene said she wants to file the articles of impeachment against Biden to prove to the American public that Congress comprises Republicans that will stand up and fight for them. The congresswoman said she does not condone that violence.
