New congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has claimed she will try to impeach Joe Biden for abuse of power as soon as he is sworn in.
The Georgia GOP member, who has made news for supporting conspiracies, announced the decision Wednesday evening to Newsmax, just hours after Democrats voted to impeach President Donald Trump.
“I will say that we must make certain our elected officials are held accountable,” Greene stated. She said Biden “wants to abuse the presidency and can be easily bribed by foreign agents, Chinese companies, Ukrainian companies.”
Greene promised she will file the impeachment articles on Jan. 21, which is Biden’s first day in the White House. In another tweet, she went public with her plans and added hashtags like #QuidProJoe and #BidenCrimeFamily.

On Wednesday, it was reported that a division has occurred between new Republican members of Congress and that Greene allegedly got into an argument with fellow GOP Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina in a group text with other freshmen GOP reps.
After Greene shared a news story about Trump’s approval rating, Mace responded by saying she was “disgusted by what you and other conspiracy theorists did last week.”
The House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump for the second time, with 10 GOP members, including Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell then stated that an impeachment trial could not be held until after Biden is in office.
Trump was initially impeached by the DNC-controlled House in 2019 on two bogus Ukraine charges but was acquitted by the Senate.
