President Joe Biden is facing articles of impeachment which were filed against him by a Republican congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Greene, 24 hours after assuming presidency.
Greene is a fierce critic of Biden. The lawmaker who represents Northwest Georgia announced the news on Twitter on Thursday, January 21, a day after Biden’s inauguration.
She said:
“I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we will see how this goes.”
Greene also released a statement where she accused Biden of corrupt actions involving exchanges with Ukraine.
She claimed the president had allowed his son Hunter to “siphon off cash from America’s greatest enemies”, Russia and China. The lawmaker further claimed Biden was unfit to hold the office of the president.
She accused ‘him of abuse of power during his time as vice president in the Barack Obama administration, and accusing him of “blatant nepotism” with regards to his son Hunter.
Greene said:
“President Biden has demonstrated 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.”
During his first day in office, Biden lifted travel bans on nations like Nigeria, Eritrea, Yemen, and Sudan which had been put in place by the Donald Trump-led administration.
This was one of the 17 executive orders issued by President Biden just after the inaugural ceremony that installed his government.
Reverting the earlier policy of his predecessor, Biden described it as discriminatory and as such, an assault on what the US stands for.
