A group of House Democrats introduced a resolution Monday to remove Republican Rep.
Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) from her two committee assignments.
The resolution, according to NBC News, was sponsored by Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch, both of Florida, and Jahana Hayes of Connecticut, would remove Greene from the House Education & Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee.
“Reducing the future harm that she can cause in Congress, and denying her a seat at committee tables where fact-based policies will be drafted, is both a suitable punishment and a proper restraint of her influence,” Wasserman Schultz said during a virtual news conference reported by NBC.
“If Republicans won't police their own, the House must step in,” she continued, adding that Greene could resign but noted that’s unlikely and the chances of expulsion are slim because it would require a two-thirds vote in the House.
Rep. Taylor Greene has come under attack by Democrats for social media posts predating her election to Congress, however, we all know the real reason Democrats are going after her – she’s an unabashed supporter of Donald Trump and the MAGA Movement.
And she had the guts to file Articles of Impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he was sworn in.
In a news release Rep. Taylor Greene outlined the case against Biden, charging the case against President Joe Biden is vast and detailed:
Joe Biden abused the power of the Office of the Vice President, enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors, by allowing his son to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept various benefits—including financial compensation—from foreign nationals in exchange for certain favors.
The evidence of widespread knowledge, corruption, and collusion on behalf of the Biden family with foreign nationals is clear and compelling.
As Vice President, Joe Biden was the senior Obama Administration official overseeing anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine. Hence, any illegal activity involving corruption conducted by Hunter Biden within or in relation to Ukraine would fall under the purview of the Office of Vice President Biden and the Obama State Department’s anti-corruption efforts. In fact, many State Department officials within the Obama Administration repeatedly registered reservations about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of a corrupt company. Thus, any instances of corruption on behalf of Hunter Biden via his role as a board member of the Ukrainian-operated Burisma energy firm were intentionally not investigated or covered up.
In 2016, Ukraine’s top anti-corruption prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, had an active and ongoing investigation into Burisma and its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky. At the time, Hunter Biden continued to serve on Burisma’s board of directors. According to news reports, then Vice-President Biden “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss [Shokin].” After that, Ukraine’s Parliament fired Shokin.
During his father’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden built many business relationships with foreign nationals and received millions of dollars from foreign sources, seemingly in exchange for access to his father. The financial transactions which Hunter engaged in illustrates serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family.
President Biden gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government. Through blatant nepotism, he enabled his son to influence foreign policy and financially benefit as a result of his role as Vice President. He supported his son engaging in collusion with Chinese Communist party-linked officials. He allowed his son to trade appointments with his father and other high-ranking administration officials in exchange for financial compensation. He permitted his son to take money from Russian oligarchs, including Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
"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,” said Rep. Taylor Greene in announcing the filing of the Articles of Impeachment against President Joe Biden.
Republicans can like or dislike Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s brand of politics and she can decide for herself whether to walk back or apologize (or not) for social media posts, but we are old enough to remember the late Senator Claiborne Pell’s preoccupation with Extra Sensory Perception and Rep. Ilhan Omar’s blatant anti-Semitism and no Democrats demanded they be removed from their committees, because, that’s right – they were Democrats.
Call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044), tell Republican Representatives that they must stand against Democrat attempts to strip Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee posts, otherwise any one of them could be the next one to lose their committee post to vindictive Democrats.
