U.S. House Republican representative files articles of impeachment against Biden and others
White House calls it ‘political stunt’
Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia introduced articles of impeachment against U.S. President Joe Biden last week, alleging he “has been working since Jan. 20, 2021, to systematically destroy this country.”
In the three articles of impeachment put forth by the congresswoman on Thursday, Greene maintains that Biden is “endangering the security of the United States and thwarting the will of Congress.”
The first claims that the Biden administration’s policies have resulted in an increase of “illegal aliens and illegal narcotics” entering the United States.
The second article of impeachment claims that Biden puts American lives at risk by “allowing illegal aliens who had tested positive for COVID-19 to enter the country and infect American citizens.”
The third article accuses Biden of creating “a national security crisis” and “endangering the lives of everyday Americans with his open border policies.”
While Biden did not personally respond to Greene’s attack, White House Spokesperson Ian Sams, who serves as special assistant to the president and is responsible for oversight and investigations, called the move “a shameless sideshow political stunt.”
Greene also introduced articles of impeachment against several other government officials last week.
On Tuesday, she presented articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves for their roles in prosecuting several protestors from the Jan. 6 U.S. Capital riot back in 2021.
Then, on Wednesday, she accused U.S. Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas of willful negligence in failing to “maintain operational control of the border.”
That same day, she filed articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland, alleging that he is “facilitating the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people.”
Specifically, Greene cited Garland’s “persecution” of former U.S. President Donald Trump during the FBI investigation regarding 150 classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.
While House Republicans do not have the political strength to advance the articles of impeachment, a Rasmussen Reports poll showed that Greene’s move was likely to be popular among Republican voters.
The poll found that 38% of respondents agreed that “since becoming president, Biden has committed high crimes and misdemeanors that would justify Congress impeaching him.”
However, the survey also revealed that about two-thirds of respondents do not think Congress will impeach the president.
Rasmussen Reports conducts a daily Presidential Tracking Poll, with results released weekly.
Republicans have been severely critical of Biden’s laxity of duty when it comes to security along the southern border of the United States. His administration’s public stance differs sharply with Trump’s repeated calls to secure the border during his presidency. Trump’s border policy was a major part of his presidential campaign in 2016 and
