GOP Congresswoman is waiting for Joe Biden to be inaugurated as President so she can introduce articles of impeachment against him.
Joe Biden will become America's 46th President only on January 20th but a Georgia lawmaker is already planning to impeach him as soon as he takes office. GOP Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has announced that she plans to file articles of impeachment on Joe Biden shortly after the House of representatives impeached Donald Trump a second time, reported Newsweek. "I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that 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," said Greene, on Newsmax's Greg Kelly Reports. "So on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden."
Much like the conspiracy theories spouted by GOP lawmakers on a rigged election, Marjorie Taylor Greene, who supported QAnon conspiracy theories, didn't provide any evidence to support her claims. Despite the Capitol Hill riots being carried out by Trump and Republican supporters, the GOP lawmaker used it as a justification for targeting Joe Biden. "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 at the Capitol," said Marjorie Taylor Greene. You can always choose to not commit violence, though I'm not sure that's an option with White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis who came out in hordes to storm the Capitol building.

"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 a minority, regardless of having all odds against us, against me," said Marjorie Taylor Greene. She refused to state what charges she would press upon the President-elect. "Joe Biden is on record, on the phone, saying that he will withhold a billion dollars of foreign aid if he didn't get his way with these deals with his son," said Greene. There is no record of Joe Biden saying that whatsoever.
However, Donald Trump is on record, on the phone, saying that he will withhold military aid to Ukraine if the President of the country didn't open a corruption investigation against Burisma, a gas company Hunter Biden was a board member on. In fact, Trump was impeached for soliciting political favors from a foreign government in exchange for military aid. Greene said she had already spoken with "quite a few" Republicans about impeaching Biden but didn't mention any names. "The Republican Party needs to change things up. The silent majority in this nation is fed up with being the target and not having representatives, not having people in Congress stand up for them," said Greene.

Green's remarks came just a day after Donald Trump was impeached after he was charged with "incitement of insurrection." Trump became the first President in American history to be impeached twice. As we reported, ten Republicans broke rank with the party to impeach the President. “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” said Republican Liz Cheney. The Trump-incited mob stormed Capitol Hill endangering the life of lawmakers and Capitol Police as Congress was in the process of certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 Presidential election. Five people including a police officer were killed in the riots organized by MAGA extremists. “The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our common country,” said Pelosi. “He must go.”
