Marjorie Taylor Greene pushes to impeach the director of the FBI: The Georgia Congresswoman, who has been trying for more than a year to impeach President Biden, has added FBI director Christopher Wray to her hit list.
Marjorie Taylor Greene: A New Impeachment Idea
Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has been trying to impeach President Biden since the day after he took office, introducing legislation on January 21, 2021, to impeach Biden for “abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Green introduced more articles of impeachment later in 2021, citing both the withdrawal from Afghanistan and “his violations of immigration law causing a national security crisis on our Southern border.”
Greene has re-introduced impeachment resolutions in the current Congress as well.
Greene hasn’t stopped with Biden and has now introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray.
According to Fox News, Greene wants to impeach Wray because of his part in “the development of a Federal police force to intimidate, harass, and entrap American citizens that are deemed enemies of the Biden regime.”
An example was the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last year, as part of the inquiry into the ex-president’s handling of classified documents.
None of the previous impeachment efforts by Greene against various officials have gone anywhere, and it would appear to be part of the Congresswoman’s nonstop efforts to draw attention to herself by acting as outlandish a manner as possible.
And this has included an endless series of attempts to impeach the president and different administration officials.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, who already introduced a resolution to impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland after the Mar-a-Lago raid, has also announced her intention to impeach U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves of Washington, D.C. Greene was also a cosponsor on a 2021 resolution to impeach Secretary of State Antony Blinken, which mostly focused on the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“In his conduct as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend, the Constitution of the United States, Christopher Asher Wray continues to materially endanger the justice system of the United States and empower President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., to persecute his political adversaries at will,” the full text of the impeachment resolution says.
The resolution lists no cosponsors.
In a statement, Greene also cited a “terrorist threat tag” introduced by the FBI after the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade and an FBI document that cites “Radical-Traditionalist Catholics.” She referenced the raid on the home of Pennsylvania anti-abortion activist Matthew Houck, who was accused of pushing a 72-year-old abortion clinic volunteer. Houck was acquitted at trial in January.
“Not only has Director Wray persecuted political opponents in an unprecedented and partisan way, but he has also overseen his agency take actions to shield and protect the current President and his family. A senior FBI official left the agency under a cloud of accusations that he shielded a laptop belonging to the President’s son, Robert Hunter Biden, from a criminal probe,” the document said.
Greene’s document is full of half-truths, especially in claiming a double standard in how the Trump and Biden documents probes were handled. But Wray did nothing to block the Biden probe, which is currently being investigated by a special counsel.
While most of the targets of Greene-led impeachment efforts have been Biden appointees, Christopher Wray was appointed FBI director by Trump himself, in 2017, after Trump’s controversial firing of James Comey. Wray, however, soon found himself at odds with Trump on various fronts, and Biden kept Wray on when he came into office.
Earlier this week, Greene said that women who Hunter Biden paid for sex might be brought before the House Oversight Committee, on which she serves.
