QAnon-Linked Congresswoman to File Impeachment Articles Against Biden on January 21

Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said Wednesday that she would be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden the day following Biden's expected inauguration.

Greene, a freshman representative, has voiced public support in the past for the conspiracy theories espoused by QAnon. The staunch ally of outgoing President Donald Trump voted against his second impeachment on Wednesday. According to her Twitter feed, Greene plans on attempting to impeach Biden on his first official day in office.

"On January 21, 2021, I'll be filing Articles of Impeachment against Joe Biden for abuse of power," Greene tweeted, adding the hashtags, "#ImpeachBiden," #QuidProJoe" and "BidenCrimeFamilly."

In a Wednesday interview on Newsmax, Greene said, "On behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable. We cannot have a President of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies."

"I can't imagine people in this country being so fearful of the future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did in the Capitol here in Washington, D.C.," she added.

Newsweek reached out to Greene's office and Biden's transition team for further comment.

Greene has been noted for her public support for QAnon, a conspiracy movement that believes Trump is leading a secret war against a worldwide cadre of Satan-worshipping pedophilic human traffickers.

In a 2017 video, Greene described Trump's presidency as "a once in a lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it."

Greene later distanced herself from her pro-QAnon comments, telling Fox News in August 2020 that "once I started finding misinformation, I decided that I would choose another path."

Greene's support of Trump continued as the president repeatedly claimed that the election had been stolen from him by Democrats. In December, Greene announced that she would join with other GOP members to object to Congress certifying Biden's win.

"I've got President Trump's back," Greene said at a Georgia rally. "You wanna know why? He has our back."

Last week, the Electoral College results certification was placed on hold as pro-Trump rioters descended on the Capitol building. Many lawmakers were forced into hiding until the situation was stabilized. Five people died as a result of the riot, including a Capitol police officer. On Wednesday, the House passed an article of impeachment against Trump for his alleged role in inciting the riot.

Greene voted against the impeachment, claiming that Democrats had turned a blind eye to riots against racism and police brutality during the summer of 2020. "Democrats support defunding the police when it's someone else's city, someone else's home, and someone else's business," she said during the House impeachment hearing.

The motion to impeach Trump passed with a vote of 232-197. Trump is the only U.S. president to be impeached twice in one term.
