Marjorie Taylor Greene, a US lawmaker belonging to the hard wing of the Republican Party, launched the process on Thursday to try to impeach President Joe Biden and other senior officials of the Democratic administration.
Members of Congress also want to remove FBI Director Christopher Wray; Attorney General Merrick Garland; According to a press conference by the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS), Alejandro Mayorkas and the US Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves.
“It is not normal, but it is the right thing to do. (…) They are all corrupt, unfit for office and should be impeached,” he said.
The first articles of impeachment were presented on Tuesday and Taylor Greene intends to present them to Biden this Thursday.
Since last January, Republicans have had control of the House of Representatives but not the Senate, so their initiative has no chance of fruition, since that other chamber is the one with the power to carry out this type of process.
Controversial immigration law
The congresswoman believes Biden has “compromised national security” with his immigration laws and management of the border with Mexico, in her opinion, by depriving border agents and police of the tools they need to do their jobs.
Along the same lines, he targeted Mayorkas, accusing Ray of turning the FBI into Biden’s “personal police force” and Garland of turning the Justice Department into an “injustice.”
De Graves, for his part, has been criticized for being more focused on investigating the January 2021 attack on the Capitol than crime in his district: “In his tenure, 67% of arrests were not prosecuted,” according to his statistics. According.
Taylor Green felt the right thing to do was to try to impeach him.
“This is what the people want and I represent the people. People all over the country want him to be prosecuted because the same standards that apply to the public should be applied to those who are paid for with their hard-earned tax dollars,” he concluded.
