Freshman Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, pledged on Newsmax Wednesday night to file articles of impeachment on Joe Biden on his first day in office. Rep. Greene made the pledge shortly after the U.S. House impeached President Donald Trump for the second time.

“We cannot have a President of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies. So on January 21st, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” said Rep. Greene.

She continued, “I’m a big believer of having people in office that are actually willing to do the job and I can’t imagine people in this country being so fearful of a future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did in the Capitol here in Washington, D.C. We cannot have that, I do not condone that violence. The American people need hope, they need to know that there are Republicans in Congress that are willing to stand up and fight for them, regardless of being in a minority, regardless of having all odds against us, against me, or against anyone in Congress, we have to hold people accountable.”

Rep. Greene then referred to the infamous video of then-Vice President Joe Biden explaining how he pressured Ukrainian officials to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Moreover, Rep. Greene mentioned Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, who is currently under a federal investigation into his taxes, and discussed the “smoking gun” New York Post report that revealed how Hunter Biden allegedly used his father to profit overseas.

“Joe Biden is on record, on the phone saying that he would withhold a billion dollars of foreign aid if he didn’t get his way with these deals with his son Hunter,” Rep. Greene explained. “And there’s an ongoing investigation with Hunter Biden’s laptop, into being bought and paid for by Communist Chinese energy companies. This is a dangerous threat to our country when we have a man that will be holding the power of the presidency but will so easily and is on record for abusing power.”

It’s unclear, however, how other Republican lawmakers are reacting to Rep. Greene’s move. When asked by Newsmax on Thursday about her party’s reaction, Rep. Greene didn’t definitively answer.

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
