QAnon congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor-Greene is vowing to file an article of impeachment against Joe Biden which charges him with abuse of power, hours after he takes office.
“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a President of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies, so on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” Greene said in an interview on Newsmax.
“I’m a big believer of having people in office who are actually willing to do the job, and I can’t imagine people in this country being so fearful of a future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did in the Capitol here in Washington, D.C. We cannot have that, I do not condone that violence,” said Greene.
Greene dug up the same old argument used against Biden during Trump’s impeachment and then during the closing days of the November election–Biden withhold aid from Ukraine because the prosecutor general was investigating Burisma, a Ukrainian has company of which Hunter Biden was a board member up to 2014.
She followed up her appearance on Newsmax with a tweet showing Biden at a 2018 conference saying he will withhold aid until the corrupt prosecutor is removed from office.
Joe Biden did leverage aid to persuade Ukraine to fire its prosecutor general Viktor Shokin. But it wasn’t because he was investigating Burisma. It was because Shokin wasn’t pursuing corruption among the country’s politicians.
As European and American diplomats pressed Ukraine to clean up its corruption, they focused on Shokin’s leadership of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Everyone was in agreement that Shokin needed to go, infact, the International Monetary Fund threatened to withhold $40 billion in aid during the time when Biden, the Obama administration’s point person on Ukraine threatened to do the same.
Also, Burisma was not under investigation at the time when Biden threatened to withhold funds.

Her threat to impeach Biden hours after he takes office comes on the same day that Donald Trump because the first president in the history of the United States to be impeached twice.
