Rep. Greene Makes Case For Impeaching Attorney General Garland

On the day after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced an impeachment resolution against him, citing a “lengthy and disturbing” pattern of “abuse of power” while serving as vice president in the Obama administration.

Although that resolution failed to gain traction, she proved to be at the forefront of continuing allegations about the Biden family’s alleged corruption, asserting the 2021 document that “Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.”

More than two years later, Greene announced that new evidence could ultimately lead to a successful impeachment of the president.

As investigations into Biden’s behavior continue, the Georgia Republican is now setting her sights on another target. Earlier this week, Greene announced her intention to introduce articles of impeachment against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The statement outlined a number of controversial actions taken by the head of the Justice Department.

“Merrick Garland has weaponized the DOJ against Joe Biden’s political enemies,” she asserted. “He’s targeted parents who are concerned about their children’s education, targeted Christians and pro-life activists and raided the home of a president.”

Greene went on to claim that the attorney general has violated his oath of office and “has instead overseen a denigration of the principles of our democratic republic by politicizing the Department of Justice, and utilizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a federal police force to punish or intimidate anyone who questions or opposes the current regime.”

For example, she wrote that the Justice Department “refused to designate violent pro-abortion groups such as Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorist organizations” despite dozens of attacks on pregnancy centers and houses of worship since the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision last year.

“Attorney General Garland has refused to prosecute leftist extremists that harassed and threatened Supreme Court Justices at their homes in the wake of Dobbs decision,” she added. “Rather than focusing on prosecuting Antifa and 11 Black Lives Matters rioters that have desecrated American cities and caused billions of dollars worth of public and private property damage, Attorney General Garland has overseen the persecution of Americans for participating in political protest.”
