A gun-toting, hate-filled GOP lawmaker wants to get the ball rolling on impeaching Joe Biden on the president-elect’s first full day in office.
After Trump was impeached for a second time Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told the Right-Wing Newsmax that she plans to file articles of impeachment against Biden on Jan. 21. How fucking stupid can these people be?
The unbalanced Georgia lawmaker regularly expresses support for insane QAnon conspiracy theories, but she’s not planning to accuse Biden of being part of a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles. Instead, she is attacking the president-elect over remarks he made in 2018 about threatening to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine if prosecutor general Viktor Shokin wasn’t replaced, the Hill reports.
“I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored,” tweeted this fine specimen of political crazy.
The Obama administration called for Shokin’s firing over corruption allegations in 2015, as did the EU and the IMF. When Biden, as vice president, raised the issue with Ukrainian officials, Shokin was investigating the energy firm Burisma. Biden’s son Hunter was a board member at the time, though he was not accused of wrongdoing. This is purely a Republican invention.
“We cannot have a president of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” said Greene, who didn’t specify what she wants to charge Biden with likely because she has no clue.
As you may recall, Trump’s first impeachment stemmed from a call to Ukraine’s leader in which he pushed for an investigation of the Bidens. (Two years earlier, six Democrats introduced articles of impeachment in the House.)
In closing one could ask how these people got elected, but then there is Trump, so that ends that argument.
