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.

Biden’s Poor Polling and Harris’ Low Electability Rating Could Have Democrats Considering ‘Nuclear Option’

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

“Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
