- The newly minted congresswoman is a backer of the QAnon conspiracy theory
- She voted against certifying the Electoral College votes for Biden last week
- Greene said she plans to file articles of impeachment against Biden on Jan. 21
Afollower of the QAnon group of conspiracy theorists, newly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., says she will introduce articles of impeachment against Joe Biden immediately after he takes the presidential oath of office on Wednesday.
The 46-year-old former CrossFit gym owner won her seat in Georgia’s 14th district, one of the biggest Republican strongholds in the state, largely unchallenged after Democratic challenger Kevin Van Ausdal unofficially withdrew from the race months before the Nov. 3 election.
Greene defeated Van Ausdal by taking nearly 75% of the votes cast, and she has already turned heads in the House by publicly backing conspiracy theories and challenging face mask mandates. However, her latest move has even members of her own party cringing.
Via her Twitter account, Greene declared that she should would be filing articles of impeachment against Biden on Jan. 21, one day after his inauguration. The announcement immediately followed the second impeachment of President Donald Trump.
“It’s time to take a stand,” she stated late Wednesday. “I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.”
Appearing on conservative news broadcaster Newsmax, Greene said she was concerned about allegations that Biden may have been unduly influenced by foreign powers.
“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,” she said.
Republicans last year sought to determine whether Hunter Biden, the president-elect’s second son, held a role on the board of directors at Ukrainian energy company Burisma that presented a conflict of interest with U.S. anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine while his father served as vice president.
A GOP report described Hunter’s position as “problematic,” though Democrats countered the Republican-led investigation uncovered no evidence of wrongdoing and no evidence that U.S. foreign policy on Ukraine was altered by his role with the energy company.
On China, Trump last year said Beijing should investigate Biden for allegedly taking government payoffs, a charge widely labeled as misleading.
