Biden wasn’t expecting this today.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, has announced her intention to present articles of impeachment against President Biden.
In a bold statement, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed her belief that President Biden should be impeached due to his alleged failure in securing the border. She argued that his actions of not enforcing immigration laws and neglecting to secure the border have intentionally jeopardized our national security.
In transcript provided by Fox, Greene stated, “It is with the highest amount of solemnity that I announce my intention to introduce articles of impeachment today on the head of this America-at-last Executive Branch that has been working since January 20th, 2021, to systematically destroy this country: the President of the United States, Joseph Robinette Biden.”
Greene clobbered President Biden for allowing what she claimed to be around six million undocumented immigrants from over 170 countries to enter the United States, characterizing it as an invasion. She further accused the president of withholding essential resources from Customs and Border Protection (CBP), hindering their ability to effectively secure the border.
“His administration has willfully refused to maintain operational control as is required by law,” Greene added.
In April, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported over 211,000 encounters with migrants, marking an increase compared to the numbers in March but a decrease from the same month the previous year. Specifically, CBP recorded 211,401 migrant encounters in April, which reflected an 11% decline from the 235,785 encounters observed in April 2022, and a 10% increase from the 191,956 encounters documented in March 2023. However, it’s important to note that these figures were recorded prior to the surge in migration associated with the conclusion of Title 42.
At a concluding press conference for what she referred to as “impeachment week,” Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene declared her plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Biden in relation to the border crisis. Throughout the week, she had also initiated impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
White House spokesman Ian Sams responded to the impeachment articles introduced by Marjorie Taylor Greene by describing them as a “shameless sideshow political stunt.” He further accused Greene of engaging in “trolling” behavior.
“Is there a bigger example of a shameless sideshow political stunt than a trolling impeachment attack by one of the most extreme MAGA members in Congress over ‘national security’ while she actively demands to defund the FBI and even said she ‘would’ve been armed’ and ‘would have won’ the January 6 insurrection if only she’d been in charge of it?” Sams argued.
