Marjorie Taylor Greene Drafts Articles of Impeachment against Biden over Afghanistan
'His failure as a president is unspeakable'
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene announced she is drafting articles of impeachment against Democrat Joe Biden following his 'disastrous' Afghanistan withdrawal strategy.
Greene revealed on Steve Bannon's War Room Pandemic podcast that her team is drafting articles of impeachment against Biden.
"I have my team right now working on articles of impeachment," Greene said.
"Because I'm so disgusted with Joe Biden."
"You know I've already filed one set of articles of impeachment," she said.
"But his failure as a president is unspeakable."
Greene added that Donald Trump "is more presidential and he's not even in the White House than Joe Biden can ever be or stand up to in the past seven months."
She also spoke in support of Americans owning assault-style rifles while referencing the threat from the Taliban.
"I wouldn't be surprised at all if [the Biden administration] are paying the Taliban," the lawmaker said.
"After all, they are paying them with weapons, vehicles, Blackhawk helicopters because the Afghan army is handing them over as fast as possible."
"Anytime any Democrat ever speaks to America about gun control again, and they want to talk to you about your AR-15, you tell them right now how many weapons and how many semi-automatic weapons did you hand over to terrorists in Afghanistan, to the Taliban, ISIS and possible Al-Qaeda before you ever talk to Americans about gun control," Greene added.
During a national address on Monday, Biden said he stands "squarely behind my decision" but also tried to blame Trump, the Taliban, and Afghans themselves for the disaster.
Trump said in a statement after Biden’s address:
"It’s not that we left Afghanistan."
"It’s the grossly incompetent way we left!”
The U.S. suspended flights from the airport Monday morning, after thousands of Afghans broke through airport security and stormed the airstrip attempting to get a flight out of the Taliban-controlled country.
Biden ordered 1,000 more U.S. troops into Kabul to help maintain order and aid in the evacuation process.
