Formal impeachment charges have been introduced against Joe Biden.
The Articles of Impeachment were filed in the House of Representatives by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
Biden is accused of “treason” as well as “abuse of power.”
“I have introduced House Res. 57, these are Articles of Impeachment on President Biden,” Rep. Greene said.
“For abuse of power in regards to his willingness to use his position of power to aid his son Hunter Biden in his business dealings.”
“I have also introduced another Article of Impeachment on President Biden, which is H. Res 597,” she continued.
“This has to do with the national security crisis that President Biden has created with regards to the extreme threat at the southern border.”
This isn’t the first time that Rep. Greene has submitted Articles of Impeachment against President Biden.
In January, Greene introduced H. Res 57, Articles of Impeachment, which were Referred to the Subcommittee in March. In August, Greene introduced H. Res. 596 and H. Res. 597.
“I have introduced House Res. 598, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden in regards to the failure in Afghanistan,” Rep. Greene went on.
“And I have introduced House Res. 596, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden for the Covid eviction moratorium and his willingness to use his position to try to do what he shouldn’t be doing. We have three branches of power.”
“Joe Biden swore an oath, he said ‘I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and I will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States’ and he is failing to uphold his oath,” Rep. Greene added.
“Joe Biden is failing the American people by refusing to uphold the law and the Constitution,” she said. “But Afghanistan is where it really hurt. You see, Article III, Section 3, Joe Biden could be guilty of treason.”
“Our law says that levying war against the U.S., adhering to the enemies of the U.S., and giving ‘aid and comfort’ is treason,” Rep. Greene said.
“President Biden did that by arming the Taliban with our taxpayer-funded U.S. equipment and weapons. He abandoned Americans in Afghanistan and seems to have no interest in getting them back.”
More from Becker News:
…the State Department admitted in an “off-the-record” call that the U.S. government believes there are as many as six times as many Americans trapped in Afghanistan than the public has been told. The Washington Free Beacon broke the story, based on Capitol Hill sources.
“We now know this administration repeatedly lied to the world about the citizens of our country it abandoned in Afghanistan,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R.-CA), whose office has assisted with evacuating Americans, told the Free Beacon. “But it did something even worse: It broke a sacred bond of trust between Americans and their government. This isn’t close to over.”
In September, Becker News first reported that the State Department blocked private and humanitarian flights in and out of Afghanistan. Fox News later obtained leaked internal emails that provided further proof that the State Department hindered Americans’ efforts to exit the country.
Also in September, a ‘hostage crisis’ was reported at Mazar-i-Sharif airport in Northern Afghanistan, where the Taliban grounded flights of U.S. civilians seeking to flee the country. President Biden had broken his promise to get 100% of Americans out of the country, as an AP fact check pointed out.
“The bottom line: 90% of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to leave,” Biden claimed in remarks at the White House. “For those remaining Americans, there is no deadline. We remain committed to get them out, if they want to come out. Secretary of State Blinken is leading the continued diplomatic efforts to ensure safe passage for any American, Afghan partner or foreign national who wants to leave Afghanistan.”
