(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, appears to be regularly using impeachment as her favored political tool. On Tuesday, she used her Twitter platform to demand the impeachment of Attorney General Merrick Garland and U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves.
Greene criticized Garland’s “failure to take legal action against Joe and Hunter Biden while targeting President Trump and numerous conservatives,” as she articulated in a tweet. She expressed that it’s totally unacceptable to let these individuals retain power.
She proudly tweeted about her efforts to begin the impeachment process against Biden almost immediately after he became president.
“Joe Biden’s initial day in office saw me filing Impeachment Articles,” she declared in her tweet. “At that point, we were already aware of many of his offenses, but the diligent investigative efforts on @GOPOversight over the past 6 months of a Republican-majority House have revealed even more.”
Earlier in the week, Greene demanded Biden’s impeachment after she posted a manipulated video snippet where she claimed the President was openly confessing to his crimes. In a gathering with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Biden joked about divulging many state secrets, only to immediately assert he was joking, as indicated by the official White House transcript.
Thomas Gift, an associate professor of political science and the director of the Centre on U.S. Politics at University College London, suggested to Newsweek that Greene is aiming to normalize impeachment in Washington. He believes she won’t succeed but will score political points with her far-right supporters.
He also commented on how Greene’s extreme approach contrasts with the behavior of today’s Republican Party, which he regards as far from conventional.
Greene’s recent tweets followed Rep. Lauren Boebert’s utilization of House rules to call for a surprise vote that passed her impeachment resolution to congressional committees for review, though they aren’t required to take any action. Boebert’s impeachment resolution accuses the President of “high crimes and misdemeanors” related to his management of the U.S.-Mexico border.
This action intensified a quarrel between Boebert and Greene, who allegedly had a dispute on the House floor last Wednesday.
According to a Daily Beast report, Greene accused Boebert, “I’ve contributed to you, I’ve supported you. But you’ve been nothing but unpleasant to me. You plagiarized my impeachment articles when I asked you to sponsor them.”
Democrats contend that the accusations against Biden belittle the gravity of impeachment.
In a speech on June 22nd, Massachusetts Rep. Jim McGovern, the leading Democrat on the House Rules Committee, condemned the Republican Party as a farce, as reported by The Associated Press.
McGovern criticized the Republicans for disrespecting the House and themselves by bringing this baseless impeachment referral resolution to the floor. He implied that former President Donald Trump, who has been impeached twice, instigated his allies to take this course.
He lamented that the House has become a place where extreme and preposterous issues are passionately debated while crucial ones are ignored.
The Republican Party has previously aimed impeachment attempts at Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
