Marjorie Taylor Greene Wants Joe Biden Impeached

No one can accuse Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of insufficient zeal when it comes to wanting to impeach President Biden. At least, you wouldn’t think so.

Marjorie Taylor Greene asked why Biden hasn’t been impeached yet: The Georgia Congresswoman has tried, several times over the last two years, to impeach President Biden.

Now, she’s been asked why he hasn’t been impeached yet. 

Marjorie Taylor Greene Wants Joe Biden Out of the White House 

No one can accuse Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of insufficient zeal when it comes to wanting to impeach President Biden. At least, you wouldn’t think so. 

Greene’s most recent legislative attempt to impeach the president came last month, and it was at least the sixth time the Congresswoman had introduced legislation aimed at doing so. This is on top of her attempts to impeach various other top officials, including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and FBI Director Christopher Wray. Greene even declared one particular week in May as “Impeachment Week.” 

None of those efforts have gone anywhere, largely because the GOP House leadership doesn’t seem to want any part in carrying such actions forward, despite the strong alliance between Greene and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy agreed to give Greene back her committee assignments, while Greene both supported McCarthy for speaker and voted for his debt ceiling deal with Biden. 

Maria Bartiromo, the Fox Business host who, as demonstrated by documents that came to light in the Dominion lawsuit, is much more of a true believer in conspiracy theories than most hosts on Fox News and Fox Business, addressed that on her show this weekend. 

Bartiromo hosted both Greene and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) on her Sunday Morning Futures show over the weekend, and the main topic was the allegation that President Biden accepted a bribe of $5 million from someone associated with Burisma, while he was vice president. 

That allegation has been made, citing a years-old FBI document by a source who claims that Biden received such a bribe, but no real evidence has yet been produced that the bribe actually happened. 

On the show, Bartiromo asked the two members of Congress about the bribery allegations, describing it as “the biggest political scandal any of us has ever seen.” She added that “obviously, we need evidence,” before asking Greene, “If this is all true, why hasn’t Joe Biden been impeached?” 

Obviously, that’s a big “if.” The answer seems to clearly be that because the evidence that would lead to the impeachment of the president has not yet been produced — and may not, in fact, exist at all — it would make no sense to move forward with impeachment at this point. 

But of course, Greene feels differently, as she’s been trying to impeach Biden for more than two years. 

“I think impeachment is fully in order,” Greene said on Bartiromo’s show. “I don’t know why our conference hasn’t moved there yet, because the American people are. And, as far as evidence, we have evidence. We have bank records, tons of them, that show the Biden family, Hunter, all kinds of family members, even grandchildren being paid millions and millions of dollars from all these foreign countries that we know they have no business to prove that they’re producing a product or a service to be making all this money.”

But of course, the House Oversight Committee, on which Greene sits, has yet to produce any evidence that President Biden himself received any money from any foreign entity, nor have they shown that he took any action, a president or vice president, that was connected to any money that any of his relatives received. 

Greene went on to accuse Wray, the Trump-appointed FBI director, of “using the power of the FBI director’s position to protect and hide the crimes from the American people.”

Biggs agreed with Greene that Biden should be impeached, and vowed to bring “a preferred motion to the floor, so it would get priority, and then it goes to the House Judiciary Committee.” But he added that “I recognize what Marjorie does, that there’s a significant number in our conference that aren’t there yet.”
