Freshman GOP Rep. pledges to file articles of impeachment on Joe Biden on Jan. 21
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.
