America is ruled by a “Communist regime,” Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told Fox News. She accused the Biden administration of using the Trump indictments as a smokescreen to keep people from focusing on things that matter to them.
“They have no policies to run on,” Marjorie Taylor Greene said of Joe Biden’s administration.
“The only thing they can run on is to continue smearing President Trump’s name, and I just want to follow up and say, Maria, the more times they indict President Trump, the more people realize that the Biden administration is a communist regime. And for the first time, Americans are actually seeing what communism really looks like, and we have to stand up to this. This is why Republicans in the House, when we come back in September, we have to vote for an impeachment inquiry. Because it’s the right thing to do.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene: Trump Indictments Election Tampering
Greene tweeted after the Donald Trump January 6 indictment that she believes it will get Donald Trump re-elected in 2024.
She and Trump supporter Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., promised to defund Special Counsel Jack Smith’s inquiry into the former president.
“This is a blatant attempt by the left to tamper with our elections,” Montana Republican Rep. Matt Rosendale tweeted. “I urge my House and Senate colleagues to immediately support [Rep. Matt Gaetz’s] bill, as I have, to defund this witch hunt.”
Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked Marjorie Taylor Greene if Republicans had the votes to impeach Joe Biden and noted that it was odd that each time bad news emerged about the Bidens that a Trump indictment miraculously would appear.
“We have this graphic here, and it’s awfully coincidental,” Bartiromo said. “Every time we see a scandal around the Biden family, we get an indictment or an attack on Donald Trump. March 16th, Comer reveals the Biden family payments. April 4th, Trump New York criminal indictment. June 8th, the GOP views the Biden bribery 1023 form, when we see a shakedown of Hunter Biden to a Chinese partner. June 9th, Trump classified indictment. July 26th, Hunter has the plea deal that falls apart. The next day, Trump gets additional charges from Jack Smith. And, of course, when Devon Archer testifies on July 31st, Trump is indicted on January 6th.”
Rolling Stone dismissed it as a coincidence.
“Bartiromo’s allegation — that prosecutors are somehow coordinating their indictments of Trump to distract from Hunter Biden news — would require a massive conspiracy among attorneys across the country. The timeline is also laughable, with charges against the former president coming sometimes multiple weeks after news broke about Biden’s son,” Rolling Stone columnist Peter Wade wrote.
Marjorie Taylor Greene has become an ally of Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s in his impeachment drive.
McCarthy Calls on the Bidens to Show Their Cards
McCarthy told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that an impeachment inquiry could happen if the Biden administration continues to obstruct Congress’s legitimate oversight into the Biden family’s alleged corruption.
“I think there’s enough proof out there that this Biden family needs to come forward and show there wasn’t a pay to play,” McCarthy said.
Democrats are spinning the call for impeachment as a distraction.
“This is a complete distraction… Kevin McCarthy can’t control his conference and they continue to let the most extreme members guide everything they do,” California Democratic Rep. Pete Aguilar said late last month.
