Rep. Greene Officially Files Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden
Republican congresswoman follows through on promise to impeach Biden
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has officially filed articles of impeachment against Democrat Joe Biden.
Freshman Congresswoman Greene followed through on her promise to file the articles as one of her first acts after being sworn into the House.
On January 13, Greene vowed to initiate the process to impeach Biden when the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump a second time.
She made good on her word and filed the documents during Biden's first full day in Office on Thursday.
Greene confirmed the filing in a video posted to Twitter.
She also released a written statement on her action.
In her video statement, Greene tells her followers, "We'll see how it goes."
In a press release, Greene's office stated that the Georgia Republican introduced articles of impeachment against Biden "for his corrupt actions involving his quid pro quo in Ukraine and his abuse of power by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash from America's greatest enemies Russian and China."
"President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency," the congresswoman wrote, arguing:
"His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.
"President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family's pockets with case from corrupt foreign energy companies.
"President Biden is even on tape admitting to a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian government threatening to withhold $1,000,000,000 in foreign aid if they did not do his bidding. President Biden residing in the White House is a threat to national security and he must be immediately impeached."
Greene went on to list allegations in what she referred to as the "vast and detailed" case against Biden.
Greene was asked by Newsmax prior to the filing if her impeachment efforts against Biden were merely symbolic, given that Democrats control the House of Representatives.
Her office later told The Blaze that "Rep. Greene simply wants to be a voice for the voiceless," saying the congresswoman "wants to defend [American conservatives] and represent the Silent Majority."
Greene, a strong supporter of President Donald Trump, won her election on Nov. 3 in Georgia's 14th District.
She has already made a string of headlines since taking office.
The congresswoman was temporarily suspended from Twitter last week after the social media platform accused her of "multiple violations of our civic integrity policies."
But Greene argued in response that she was given no explanation for the suspension, and issued a statement saying that "Big Tech is silencing Americans" and that "censorship has got to stop."
