Freshman lawmaker hated by Dems tosses impeachment back at them

Rep. Marjorie Taylor GreeneAfter witnessing House Democrats rush through a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, a freshman Republican is vowing to return the favor for President-elect Joe Biden.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (pictured at right) has announced she will file articles of impeachment against Biden for what she calls “abuse of power” by the former vice president, who breezed through the presidential election with barely a controversy from a cheering and compliant media.

“We cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency,” Greene told Newsmax, “and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies.”

It is no right-wing conspiracy theory to point out then-Vice President Biden oversaw foreign policy for China and Ukraine at the same time his troubled son, Hunter, was getting wealthy thanks to lucrative business dealings in both countries and elsewhere.

Joe Biden has claimed he was not aware of Hunter Biden’s business dealings and had no personal interest in them, but a pre-election bombshell published by The New York Post suggested otherwise. After it obtained Hunter’s Biden's MacBook, which had been left at a repair shop and never picked up, the newspaper published accusations of a corrupt and wealthy political family in which Hunter used his father’s vice presidency to crisscross the globe and get rich by cozying up to shady businessmen.

Tony Bobulinski, a business partner of the Biden family, told the Post that Joe Biden received 10 percent of their business earnings.

“The reference to ‘the big guy’ in the much-publicized May 13, 2017 e-mail is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski told the Post.

The bombshell accusations came just two weeks before Election Day and the national media, instead of reporting on the story, literally announced it would not touch the story at all.

The New York Post watched Twitter ban its account and Facebook censored the story, too.

Greene’s plan is not expected to go far in the Democrat-led House, where the Georgia lawmaker is in the minority, but she told Newsmax the 75 million Americans who voted for Trump deserve to see a Republican lawmaker willing to fight for them.

Joe Biden and Xi Jinping (2013)The freshman congresswoman, who represents the 14th District, came to Congress already accused by the national media of endorsing “elements” of the QAnon conspiracy theory and of making “Islamaphobic” comments as a candidate.

During the GOP primary, Politico uncovered hours of Facebook posts Greene had made on hot-button issues, and GOP leaders in the House denounced the comments from then-candidate Greene and made it clear she was not welcome on Capitol Hill. 

As the Democrats went forward this week with impeachment proceedings, the freshman lawmaker posted on Twitter that the “Hail Mary attempt” to impeach and remove Trump is an “attack on every American who voted for him.”  

She went on to state that Democrats “must be held accountable for the political violence inspired by their rhetoric.”

For that social media comment, Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo) described Greene as “depraved” and “dangerous” in a Jan. 13 floor speech.
