GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican lawmaker, filed impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden barely 24 hours after Joe Biden’s inauguration as US President, alleging misuse of power by Biden from his tenure as vice president.
The newly sworn-in Georgia Rep., who endorsed QANON conspiracy theories and opposed the 25,000 deployed to Washington D.C. by the National Guard.
To defend the inauguration of the administration, she took to Twitter to make her declaration.
‘I just filed impeachment articles with President Joe Biden, we’ll see how that works,’ Greene said.
She then used her announcement immediately to raise money for the ‘Impeach Joe Biden Fund.’
She accused Biden of “enabling bribery” and “blatant nepotism” in a press release, using the position of his son Hunter Biden in the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.
“President Joe Biden is unfit to serve the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of authority as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing,” she wrote in a statement Thursday.
“President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.”
Biden has repeatedly denied the involvement of U.S. foreign policy in the work of his son in Kiev.
After months of an investigation last year, Republicans in the Senate presented no proof of Biden’s wrong-doing.
As the house is controlled by Democrats, Greene’s articles of impeachment are not expected to be taken seriously.
Just hours after the House’s historic second articles of Impeachment against President Trump, Greene stated last week that she would bring articles of impeachment against Biden.
She took Thursday to Twitter to say the “inauguration looked like a one-party military state takeover with 30k troops.”
She asserted, “People have been told not to go & flags were planted to show the fake support,”
