While Donald Trump became the first US President to be impeached for a second time on Wednesday, a US Representative from Georgia is seeking to impeach his successor. According to Fox News, the newly elected Representation Marjorie Taylor Greene revealed her plans of filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on Twitter. Greene accused Biden of abuse of power as she made the announcement on Wednesday. The Republican congresswoman said that she will go ahead with the matter the day right after the Inauguration i.e. Biden's first full day in office. 




On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden. 75 million Americans are fed up with inaction. It’s time to take a stand. I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored #ImpeachBiden #QuidProJoe #BidenCrimeFamily, read the Twitter post in which she linked a video interview of her with Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV. "I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that our leaders are made accountable," she said during the interview.




"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, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies," she added in the interview. Green, a presidential ally aligned with a pro-Trump conspiracy group, shared being "tired of Republicans who lay down and allow this country to be ravaged." When asked if the first-time Congress member could actually keep true to her promise or if it was simply a symbolic one as the GOP is in minority in the House, the 46-year-old expressed that she believed in getting people in the office who are willing to do the job.



She added that she could not imagine people living in such fear under Biden's presidency that they resort to committing violent crimes which were recently witnessed at the Capitol on January 6. Greene did condemn the violence but said their citizens just needed hope. She assured them that the GOP members in the Congress are willing to stand up for them despite having a minority in the house. Furthermore, she went on to attack Joe Biden over his alleged dealings with Ukraine over his businessman son Hunter.




An investigation was launched last year by Senate Republicans but they found no wrongdoings on the part of then-vice President Biden, who oversaw foreign policy in Ukraine, while Hunter served on the board of Burisma Holdings. According to CNN, the federal authorities are currently investigating the business dealing of Hunter Biden, in order to know whether he and his associates were involved in the violation of tax and money laundering laws in business dealings with foreign countries, especially China. That being said, Biden is not implicated in this.   




As for Trump, he did manage to avoid humiliation the first time as the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted him of his dubious record. However, the Democratic-controlled House impeached him on January 13 on charges of inciting insurrection during last week's rally at the Capitol. But Greene slammed Democrats saying, "Democrats' impeachment of President Trump today has now set the standard that they should be removed for their support of violence against the American people." She won her House seat in November but is known for her espousing biased and conspiratorial views, including those promoted by fringe conspiracy group QAnon, reports ABC News




The conspiracy by QAnon propagates the baseless belief that Trump is waging a secret campaign against every enemy in the "deep state". In videos that were discovered right after Greene's initial June 9 Republican primary, she complained about an "Islamic invasion" into government offices and claimed that Black and Hispanic men are held back by "gangs and dealing drugs." She also promotes the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire philanthropist George Soros, a Jewish, has collaborated with the Nazis. Greene also claims that "healthy people do not spread COVID, COVID positive people spread COVID" while refusing to wear a mask in public.
