Marjorie Taylor Greene to Submit Joe Biden Impeachment Articles

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has said she is going to submit articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden imminently.

Speaking alongside Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) at an event in Iowa on Thursday, Greene said: "Yes I do have articles of impeachment drawn up, to submit tomorrow."

In a clip shared by RSBN, she continued: "Because I believe in firing people when they're corrupt and they do a bad job. And Joe Biden is failing America and he needs to be impeached."

Greene retweeted this along with the hashtag "#ImpeachBiden."

Greene's comments come as Biden continues to face criticism over the unfolding situation in Afghanistan and how the U.S. withdrawal from the nation has been handled. The Republican representative called Biden a "piece of s***" in a video in which she criticized him over Americans who have been unable to leave Afghanistan.

"Thousands of Americans are stuck over there in Afghanistan and you're letting the Taliban kick your ass while you're lecturing governors about mask and vaccines," Greene said. "Do your job. Bring these Americans home."

She had spoken of having articles prepared earlier this week, telling Steve Bannon on Real America's Voice's War Room Pandemic on Monday: "I have my team right now working on articles of impeachment. Because I'm so disgusted with Joe Biden. You know I've already filed one set of articles of impeachment. But his failure as a president is unspeakable."

In a tweet, Greene shared a clip of Fox News' Tucker Carlson criticizing an ABC News interview with Biden and wrote: "Biden is a propped up puppet and they can't hide it anymore. It's embarrassing. Tomorrow I introduce Articles of Impeachment on the pathetic puppet."

Biden has faced other calls to resign while the prospect of him being impeached has been previously raised by critics.

Greene herself has made such comments in the past and filed articles of impeachment before. She announced she had done so in January, on the second day of Biden's presidency.

Impeaching Biden would require a simple majority vote in the House to move ahead. With the Democratic Party in the majority in the lower chamber of Congress, it appears unlikely the motion will pass. To convict after impeachment would take a supermajority of two-thirds in the Senate.

As well as pushes against him such as those from Greene, Biden has also seen his approval rating dip of late, amid the crisis in Afghanistan.

Newsweek has contacted Greene and the White House for comment.
