Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) moved forward on Friday to expunge both impeachment cases against President Donald Trump. The action was welcomed by America First voters and loyal supporters of Trump.
President Trump holds the distinction of being the only U.S. president to be impeached twice. The first impeachment stemmed from a whistleblower allegation that Trump pressured Ukraine to launch an investigation into the Biden family. The second impeachment was related to the January 6, 2021, protests at the Capitol.

Greene and Stefanik’s proposed resolutions seek to exonerate Trump from both impeachments. Greene’s resolution centers on a confidential FD-1023 form that reportedly presents proof of the Bidens’ involvement in a bribery scheme with a Ukrainian gas magnate. This information questions the legitimacy of the charges brought against Trump in his first impeachment.
“The first impeachment of President Trump was a politically motivated sham. Meanwhile, the FBI had credible evidence of Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings,” Greene stated. On the other hand, Stefanik’s resolution calls for an expunction of the second impeachment related to the Capitol protests.
“The American people know Democrats weaponized the power of impeachment against President Donald Trump to advance their extreme political agenda,” Stefanik said. She and Greene agree that the impeachments were politically driven attacks against Trump and his supporters.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has endorsed the conservative push to expunge both impeachments. McCarthy’s position emphasizes President Trump’s enduring influence on the party.
The bid to expunge the impeachments isn’t just about clearing Trump’s name. It’s about sending a clear message to the American public that justice will be served, especially when it requires correcting the record in the pages of our country’s history.
Indeed, if passed, these resolutions will have a profound impact, not just on Trump’s legacy but on the future of American politics. They challenge the status quo, the power of impeachment, and how Democrats have wielded it for political gain.
Ultimately, the push to expunge Trump’s impeachments is more than a partisan move. It’s a call for fairness and a reminder that all political figures, regardless of party affiliation, should be held to the same standard. This is not about erasing the past but setting a precedent for the future – a precedent of integrity, justice, and adherence to the truth.
