President Joe Biden has just been hit with impeachment paper and, in the charges, he has been accused of “treason.”
The Articles of Impeachment were introduced on Friday by Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
“I have introduced House Res. 57, these are Articles of Impeachment on President Biden,” the representative 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 said. “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,” the firebrand representative said. “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,” she said.
“Joe Biden is failing the American people by refusing to uphold the law and the Constitution,” the representative 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,” she 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.”

In a House of Representatives controlled by Democrats and led by House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the impeachment is not likely to go anywhere.
It is not the first time Articles of Impeachment were filed against Biden, as another Republican representative filed them for the crisis at the United States and Mexico Border in September.
The Washington Examiner reported exclusively:
Ohio Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on Tuesday, citing his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border situation, attempt to expand the federal moratorium on evictions, and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
Republican Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas signed on as co-sponsors of the impeachment resolution.
“I take this seriously. I don’t think it’s haphazard. I’m not trying to get media attention for myself,” Gibbs told the Washington Examiner. “He’s done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary.
“He’s not capable of being commander in chief, and that’s obvious by the actions since Day One when he took the presidency back in January,” Gibbs added. “Maybe something like this makes the White House think twice before they do some of this nonsense.”
Gibbs said that he and his colleagues began working on the articles of impeachment even before Biden’s rushed, manic, deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“We actually started working before the Afghanistan debacle because I was so upset” about what is going on along the border, as well as the president ignoring the Supreme Court’s opposition to extending an eviction moratorium.
“Obviously, it’s not going to go anywhere with Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi,” Gibbs said, acknowledging the political reality that Democrats currently are in the majority in the House and Senate. Nevertheless, “it shows that there are some Republicans that think that this president needs to be impeached, he needs to be removed from office one way or another,” he added.
“At some point, they’re gonna be held accountable for their actions, and this is kind of putting them on notice,” Gibbs said.
