In an impassioned speech on the House floor, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene launched a new call for President Joe Biden’s impeachment, citing allegations of corruption and abuse of power that she says make her case beyond a shadow of a doubt.
On January 21, 2021, Greene, a vocal critic of the Biden administration, moved to introduce articles of impeachment against the president. In his latest speech, he laid out the basis for his accusations, contrasting them with what he called the baseless accusations that led to the impeachment of former President Trump.
“When I filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden,” he said, “the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, kicked me out of all my committees. They claimed it was because of some interactions on social media, but we all know the truth. It was because my accusations against Biden were correct.”
Greene went on to compare the alleged evidence against Biden to the Steele dossier, a document that played a major role in Trump’s first impeachment trial. Greene criticized the dossier, claiming it was created as a political tool by Democrats and was based on unsubstantiated claims. Instead, he argues, the evidence against Biden is far more compelling and comes from a trusted FBI informant.
The core of the evidence, according to Greene, is found in an FBI document known as Form FD-1023. That form, he says, reveals a $5 million bribe from the oligarch who owns Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, to then-Vice President Biden, as well as his son, Hunter Biden. According to Greene, the bribe was made in exchange for Biden using his power to fire Victor Shokin, Ukraine’s attorney general.
Greene concluded his impassioned speech with a new call for impeachment. “We have to impeach Joe Biden,” he said emphatically. “This kind of corruption should never be allowed. We must also remove President Trump’s unfair impeachments.”
It remains to be seen whether these new calls for impeachment will find any traction in the House of Representatives, where Republicans currently hold a small majority.
