Marjorie Taylor Greene files articles of impeachment against Biden over ‘abuse of power’

Becker News reports that Marjorie Taylor Greene, the firebrand freshman Republican congresswoman from Georgia, has again filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, this time for what she calls “abuse of power.”

Rep. Greene announced the move in a speech on the House floor Friday.

“I have introduced House Res. 57, these are Articles of Impeachment on President Biden,” Greene said, according to a transcript from Becker News. “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.”

As for what “business dealings” Greene is referring to, it could be a number of things, from the president’s son’s recent art sales to business deals inked while Hunter’s father was vice president.

“Three branches of power”

Greene herself conceded Friday that this isn’t the first time she’s taken this step.

“I have also introduced another Article of Impeachment on President Biden, which is H. Res 597,” she said, according to the transcript. “This has to do with the national security crisis that President Biden has created with regards to the extreme threat at the southern border.”

Recent reports indicate that more than 2 million undocumented migrants crossed the U.S.–Mexico border during Fiscal Year 2021, which just came to an end on Sept. 30. This includes 1.65 million who were apprehended by border agents, an all-time record.

Greene also previously introduced articles against Biden for his “failure in Afghanistan.”

“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,” she declared Friday. “We have three branches of power.”

What now?

Because the U.S. government is currently in the hands of Democrats, it’s almost certain that Greene’s articles won’t get any response in Congress’ lower chamber. Perhaps this will change if the GOP takes back the majority in the 2022 midterms.

For now, however, at least someone in Congress is trying to hold the president accountable.

“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,’” Greene said Friday, “and he is failing to uphold his oath.”
