After only a single day in office, President Joe Biden faces an attempt at impeachment from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who filed the articles for impeachment on Tuesday. Citing his involvement with his son’s potentially corrupt tenure for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Greene believes President Biden “unfit” to ascend to the Presidency.
“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing. 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,” Greene said in a statement.
“President Biden is even on tape admitting to a quid pro with the Ukrainian government threatening to withhold $1,000,000,000 in foreign aid if they did not do this bidding. President Biden residing in the White House is a threat to national security and he must be immediately impeached,” the statement added.
Last week, Greene announced that she intended to file articles of impeachment against Biden following his inauguration. The specific charges of a high crime or misdemeanor towards Biden have not been revealed. Concerns over voter fraud during the 2020 election may also have played a role in her decision, since tweeting on Jan.13th that, “On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect. 75 million Americans are fed up with inaction. It’s time to take a stand. I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.”
Without a majority in the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will almost certainly bat Greene’s articles down and refuse to hold a hearing. No other Republican lawmakers have openly supported the impeachment of Biden.
Despite ongoing federal investigations into Hunter Biden’s businesses dealings with foreign nations, including Burisma, by the Justice Department and the state of Delaware, President Biden has yet to be definitively linked to his son’s financial history nor has Hunter been charged with any crimes. President Biden has maintained his and his son’s innocence and has denied any under-the-table self-enrichment throughout his political career.
Inspired by the Democrat’s regrettable politicization of the legal process of impeachment through a couple of illegitimate impeachments against former President Donald Trump, Greene plays into the running roughshod of the Constitution by Democrats. Without citing any crime committed proven in a court of law, Greene all but stoops down to the Democrats’ level, a rather disappointing abuse of her office and wholly unconstitutional.
