Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has filed Articles of Impeachment against President Joe Biden. Greene kept her promise of filing the articles the day after Biden’s inauguration. A copy of the official documents can be seen below:
Rep. Greene cites the main reason for pursuing impeachment as “his corrupt actions involving his quid pro quo in Ukraine and his abuse of power by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash from America’s greatest enemies,” referring to Russia and China.
Congresswoman Greene released the following statement:
The document then maps out a detailed list of charges and evidence against the current President of the United States. The document charges Biden with “enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Several pieces of evidence are presented, such as: “widespread knowledge, corruption, and collusion on behalf of the Biden family with foreign nationals.”
Further, Rep. Greene states that “many State Department officials within the Obama Administration repeatedly registered reservations about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of a corrupt company,” alluding to Hunter Biden’s relationship with Burisma, charging that “any instances on behalf of Hunter Biden via his role as a board member of Ukrainian-operated Burisma energy firm were intentionally not investigated or covered up.”
Possibly most damning is the evidence Rep. Greene provides of the alleged quid pro quo Joe Biden engaged in when he withheld aid to the Ukrainian government until they fired anti-corruption prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. Mr. Shokin was investigating Burisma, the company for which Hunter Biden served as part of its Board of Directors. According to the document filed by Rep. Greene, then Vice-President Biden “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss [Shokin].” Shortly thereafter, Mr. Shokin was fired by Ukraine’s Parliament.
Additionally, the document charges that Hunter Biden made “millions of dollars” by selling access to his father, the Vice-President of the United States at the time, which represents “counterintelligence and extortion concerns” which “gravely endangered the security of the United States.”
Representative Greene tweeted a short 5-second video where she declares that she has just filed Articles of Impeachment against President Biden, adding, “We’ll see how this goes.”
