Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced articles of impeachment against Joe Biden, alleging that he has committed “treason.”
“I have introduced House Res. 57, these are Articles of Impeachment on President Biden,” Greene said. “For abuse of power in regards to his willingness to use his position of power to aid his son Hunter Biden in his business dealings.”
“I have also introduced another Article of Impeachment on President Biden, which is H. Res 597,” she continued. “This has to do with the national security crisis that President Biden has created with regards to the extreme threat at the southern border.”
“I have introduced House Res. 598, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden in regards to the failure in Afghanistan,” Greene went on. “And I have introduced House Res. 596, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden for the Covid eviction moratorium and his willingness to use his position to try to do what he shouldn’t be doing. We have three branches of power.”
“Joe Biden swore an oath, he said ‘I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and I will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and he is failing to uphold his oath,” Greene added.
“Joe Biden is failing the American people by refusing to uphold the law and the Constitution,” she said. “But Afghanistan is where it really hurt. You see, Article III, Section 3, Joe Biden could be guilty of treason.”
“Our law says that levying war against the U.S., adhering to the enemies of the U.S., and giving aid and comfort is treason,” Greene said.
“President Biden did that by arming the Taliban with our taxpayer-funded U.S. equipment and weapons. He abandoned Americans in Afghanistan and seems to have no interest in getting them back,” she said.
A freshman Republican senator said this week he believes his party is in good shape ahead of next year’s midterm elections and that if the GOP retakes control of Congress, impeaching President Joe Biden and examining Democratic committee assignments should be prioritized.
In an interview with FM Talk 106.5, Alabama GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville said he was frustrated with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her push to pass gargantuan spending bills including a $1.5 trillion infrastructure package and a $3.5 trillion social spending measure, both of which are backed by Biden.
He went on to speculate that the GOP would win back the House but would be stuck with Biden, whom he claimed was better than Vice President Kamala Harris.
“We’re stuck with Biden for a few years, but he’s much better than that girl who is supposed to be the border czar,” Tuberville went on, in reference to Harris. “You never see her up here. You never hear from her … whoever she is.”
