QAnon Rep. Slams GOP Colleagues Who Don't Support Impeaching Biden In Unhinged Rant

During an appearance on the pro-Trump Real America's Voice network Wednesday, Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene insisted that Republicans in the House of Representatives are "angry" with her for pushing to impeach President Joe Biden.

Greene has called for President Biden to be impeached from the moment he was inaugurated.

She says her fellow Republicans have admonished her for moving too quickly.

Despite these criticisms, Greene is adamant that the impeachment process should go ahead:

"They claim that I went too fast, that I rushed. They say the case needed to be built... I understand building a case."
"I know there's a legal process but we have to get the ball rolling and there's no reason to sit and wait."
"I am calling for Republicans to stop waiting. I'm calling for Republican members of Congress to start the impeachment process."
"There is nothing to wait for. The American people are already ahead of Republicans."

Greene went on to suggest that ongoing crisis in Afghanistan offers an "opportunity" for Republicans to do their duty and impeach the President.

As she told Real America's Voice host Steve Bannon, a former White House chief strategist to ex-President Donald Trump:

""Because if the coin was flipped, Steve, if this was President Trump, they not only would impeach him, they would have him in jail and he would never see the light of day again."
"They would arrest many members of his administration. It would look like communist China. These people would disappear."
"We need to move on this. Republicans in Congress have to take advantage of this crisis!"

Greene issued her remarks shortly after she announced that she'd introduced articles of impeachment against President Biden.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Greene claimed that Republicans and "some Democrats all over the country" want to see Biden impeached as a result of his administration's handling of evacuations from Afghanistan.

An official press release dated August 20 further explains her reasons for filing the articles of impeachment:

"Today Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced three impeachment resolutions against Joe Biden for his dereliction of duty in Afghanistan, his violations of immigration law causing a national security crisis on our Southern border, and his usurping of the Constitutional balance of power by ignoring the ruling of the Supreme Court."

At no point in any of these communications does Greene mention the Trump-negotiated agreement to withdraw from Afghanistan or for releasing thousands of Taliban leaders from prison.

Nor does she acknowledge that President Biden that had merely pledged to honor the Trump administration's agreement, albeit on an extended deadline.

Greene's move has been widely criticized, largely because of her lack of formal knowledge of the impeachment process.









Although articles of impeachment are filed in the House, potential trials are held in the Senate, which notes on its website exactly how the process works:

"In impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives charges an official of the federal government by approving, by simple majority vote, articles of impeachment."
"After the House of Representatives sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate, the Senate sits as a High Court of Impeachment to consider evidence, hear witnesses, and vote to acquit or convict the impeached official."
"A committee of representatives, called 'managers,' act as prosecutors before the Senate."

Greene has filed articles of impeachment against President Biden before.

In January 2021, she told Newsmax that she would file articles of impeachment on the President's first full day in office.

She did so on January 21, alleging the President had benefited from business in Ukraine involving his son, Hunter Biden.

That went nowhere, and for good reason.

Conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden's business dealings have been a favorite in conservative circles for some time.

Last year, a New York Post investigation published emails suggesting Hunter Biden introduced his father to an executive with Burisma Holdings––a Ukrainian gas firm––in 2015.

The story received criticism for shaky reporting and Twitter's attempts to block the news outlet from sharing the story received criticism from Republicans who accused the tech giant of censoring conservative voices.
