A Republican lawmaker has filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden, barely 24 hours after his inauguration as US President.
According to reports, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene who is a newly sworn-in Rep. from Georgia accused Biden of abusing his power while he was the vice president of the country.
Taking to her Twitter page to make her announcement, she wrote;
“I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we will see how this goes.”
Greene then immediately used her announcement to raise money for an “Impeach Joe Biden Fund.”
In a press release, the Republican lawmaker accused Biden of “enabling bribery” and “blatant nepotism” by utilizing his son Hunter Biden’s position on the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.
She wrote in a statement Thursday;
“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.
President 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.”
Meanwhile, Biden has repeatedly denied involving U.S. foreign policy in Kiev with his son’s work.
Also, Republicans in the Senate after months of investigation last year found no evidence of wrongdoing from Biden.
So, Greene’s articles of impeachment might not be taken seriously as the house is controlled by Democrats.
