With Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) at the helm, an impeachment charge against Joe Biden may soon be steered to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, as reported by Breitbart News on Thursday morning.
Greene intends to introduce a privileged resolution – a procedural maneuver that supersedes the usual process – to bring articles of impeachment against Biden. This move will force House Republicans into a decisive vote, signaling a bold break from the conventional legislative approach.
NEW:🚨@mtgreenee told me she will force a vote to impeach Joe Biden for corruption under a privileged resolution — without the help of Judiciary Committee
She also said GOP Reps Ken Buck & Tom McClintock on Judiciary are blocking impeachment in committeehttps://t.co/GHJkY5o4n7

Greene’s motivation centers on multiple allegations of improprieties involving Biden. According to Greene, the Oversight Committee has accumulated substantial evidence to indicate Biden’s involvement in questionable transactions.
“We now know on the Oversight Committee through our investigation that he took a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian oligarch to get Victor Shokin fired — the prosecutor investigating Burisma,” Greene told Breitbart News. She also mentioned bank records indicating wire transfers from various countries and entities to the Biden family through a supposed fake LLC.
2 1/2 years after I introduced my Articles of Impeachment against Joe Biden for his foreign pay-to-play crimes as VP in Ukraine, my bill is the NUMBER ONE most viewed.
I can NOT believe judiciary hasn’t taken up my articles.

Despite this, Greene notes a frustrating lack of movement toward impeachment among her Republican colleagues. In her words, these Republicans appear as “fools” for not acting on the impeachment process, a view that sharply contrasts with the hesitancy exhibited by other GOP leaders.
In an address to her Republican colleagues, Greene expressed stark disagreement with their stance on impeachment, voicing disappointment over the refusal to back her bid by members of the House Judiciary Committee, including Reps. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Tom McClintock (R-CA).
Despite her differences, Greene has maintained open lines of communication with GOP leaders, asserting her continued support for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the Republican leadership. The impeachment resolution could hit the House floor as early as Friday or upon the return of Congress to Washington in two weeks.
While Greene’s assertive actions mirror those of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), another conservative House Republican who previously aimed to impeach Biden, Greene seems to have taken umbrage at Boebert’s attempts to steer the impeachment process alone. This has led to friction within the Republican caucus, adding complexity to the impeachment saga.
Greene’s efforts should not be discounted as mere intra-party wrangling. Instead, they underscore some conservatives’ deep-seated dissatisfaction against the Biden administration. Whether or not Greene’s impeachment bid succeeds, it should directly motivate the GOP to revisit its stance on holding Biden accountable, igniting a much-needed debate within the party and setting a bold precedent for future Republican strategy.
Ultimately, the success of Greene’s efforts will hinge on her ability to rally support within her party and convince the leadership of the necessity of her actions. Amid these circumstances, one thing is clear – the call for Biden’s impeachment is growing louder, and it won’t be ignored for long.
