Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene vows to file articles of impeachment against Biden

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene vows to file articles of impeachment against Biden

Rep.
Marjorie
Taylor
Greene,
the
newly
elected
Republican
from
Georgia,
took
to
Twitter
Wednesday
to
announce
that
she
will
be
filing
articles
of
impeachment
against

President-elect
Joe
Biden
a
day
after
the
inauguration.

She
said
her
motivation
is
to
stand
up
for
the
75
million
Americans
who
are
“fed
up
with
inaction”
in
government. 

BIDEN
‘NOT
AFRAID’
TO
TAKE
OATH
OUTSIDE 

“It’s
time
to
take
a
stand,”
she
said.
“I’m
proud
to
be
the
voice
of
Republican
voters
who
have
been
ignored.”

President
Trump

was
impeached
by
the
U.S.
House
for
a
historic
second
time
Wednesday,
charged
with
“incitement
of
insurrection”
over
the
deadly
riot
at
the
Capitol.

Ten
Republicans
fled
Trump,
joining
Democrats
who
said
he
needed
to
be
held
accountable
and
warned
ominously
of
a
“clear
and
present
danger”
if
Congress
should
leave
him
unchecked
before
Democrat
Biden’s
inauguration
Jan.
20.

TRIAL

TRUMP

The
congresswoman
did
not
specify
what
exact
charge
she
will
level
against
Biden,
but
she
tweeted
out
the
now-famous
panel
discussion
at
the
Council
on
Foreign
Relations
where
Biden
talked
about
how
he
urged
Ukrainian
officials
to
fire
Viktor
Shokin,
the
country’s
prosecutor
in
2015,
while
he
was
vice
president.
Biden
has
denied
any
wrongdoing.

Greene’s
office
and
the
Biden
transition
team did
not
immediately
respond
to
an
after-hours
email
from
Fox
News.

Greene’s
move
seems
to
be
symbolic.
Congress
will
be
controlled
by
Democrats
and
she
would
need
a
simple
majority
of
the
members
to
bring
the
charges
to
the
Senate.

Her
announcement
seems
to
be
at
odds
with
many
in
her
own
party
who
say
Trump’s
second
impeachment
was
unnecessarily
divisive
at
a
time
when
the
country
needs
to
start
coming
together.

Greene had defended
her
decision
not
to
wear
a
mask
when
locked
in
a
secure
room
with
other
House
members
during
the
Capitol
riots
and
pushed
back
against Democrats who
are
now
blaming
her
and
other
maskless
GOP
members
for
their
recent
coronavirus
positive
tests.

She
said
she
tested
negative
for
COVID-19
on
Jan.
4
at
the
White
House
and
doesn’t
believe
that
healthy
Americans
should
be
forced
to
muzzle
themselves
with
a
mask.
