Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has made a bold and controversial move by introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. At a news conference held at the Capitol, Taylor Greene accused Biden of mishandling the crisis at the southern border and claimed that his administration is actively working to dismantle the country.
Known for her contentious statements and conspiracy theories, Taylor Greene expressed her belief that the Biden administration has been systematically destroying the United States since taking office in January 2021. The articles of impeachment against Biden are just the beginning, according to Taylor Greene, who hopes that House Republicans will identify additional charges to bring against the president.
While specifics regarding potential additional allegations were not disclosed, Taylor Greene criticized Biden for his failure to enforce immigration laws and secure the border. She argued that millions of undocumented immigrants from over 170 countries have entered the United States, compromising national security under Biden’s watch.
Taylor Greene also accused Biden of allowing fentanyl, a potent opioid, to flood into the country, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Americans daily. However, U.S. officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, have attributed the increase in fentanyl-related deaths to the drug’s processing with Chinese ingredients in Mexico.
The timing of Taylor Greene’s move coincides with the expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era policy that allowed for the immediate expulsion of asylum-seeking migrants at the border. As a result, a significant number of migrants are now being released into the public with court dates set years into the future.
This latest action by Taylor Greene concludes what she refers to as her “impeachment week.” Prior to targeting President Biden, she introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray, US Attorney Matthew Graves, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Attorney General Merrick Garland. Taylor Greene criticized Mayorkas for his handling of border control and accused Garland of politicizing the Department of Justice and using the FBI to target political opponents.
However, it is highly unlikely that Taylor Greene’s impeachment articles will gain traction in the House of Representatives. With a deeply divided chamber and a slim Republican majority, it is doubtful that the articles will receive sufficient support, particularly from Democrats. Despite Taylor Greene’s efforts, the impeachment of President Biden remains highly improbable at this time.
