• Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R.-Ga., had earlier threatened to initiate impeachment proceedings against Biden
• She resurfaced on Monday by criticisng the social media company after regaining access to her Twitter account
• Greene immediately used her announcement to raise money for an “Impeach Joe Biden Fund.”
Freshman Republican, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R.-Ga., announced last week that she would be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden a day after the inauguration.
She said her motivation was to stand up for the 75 million Americans who are “fed up with inaction” in government.
Greene regained access to her Twitter account which was temporarily locked over “multiple violations” on the social media platform after getting into a back and forth with a Georgia election official.
Greene, who supports QANON conspiracy theories and criticised the 25,000 National Guard deployed to Washington D.C. to protect the presidential inauguration, took to Twitter to make her announcement.
“I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we will see how this goes,” Greene said.
Fox News reports that it could not reach Republican House leadership to comment on the recent move, but Greene immediately used her announcement to raise money for an “Impeach Joe Biden Fund.”
Her impeachment filings were not made readily available, but in a press release, she claimed she was basing the impeachment on an alleged abuse of power by Biden from his time as vice president.
‘Bribery’ and ‘Nepotism’
Greene accused Biden of “enabling bribery” and “blatant nepotism” by utilising his son Hunter Biden’s position on the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.
“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,” she wrote in a statement on Thursday. “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.”
Biden has repeatedly denied involving U.S. foreign policy in Kiev with his son’s work. And Senate Republicans found no evidence of wrongdoing after completing their own months-long investigation into corruption allegations last year.
Greene’s articles of impeachment are not expected to make it very far with a Democrat-controlled House, but Fox News could not reach Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, for comment.
