(CNSNews.com) – Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said on Wednesday she plan to file articles of impeachment against Democrat Joe Biden the day after he is sworn in as president.
“On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden,” Greene tweeted Wednesday, after the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time.
“It’s time to take a stand. I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.”
Rep. Greene also spoke to Newsmax TV on Wednesday:
I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable. We cannot have a president of the United States that 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,” Greene said.
I’m a big believer in having people in office that are actually willing to do the job. And I can’t imagine people in this country being so fearful of a future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did in the Capitol here in Washington, D.C. We cannot have that. I do not condone that violence.
The American people need hope. They need to know that there are Republicans in Congress that are willing to stand up and fight for them, regardless of being in a minority, regardless of having all odds against us, against me or against anyone in Congress. We have to hold people accountable.
Greene is among President Trump’s strongest congressional supporters, and at least one Democrat has mentioned “expulsion” as a way to “stop” her.
