For many, the fact that thousands of our fellow citizens are misusing their power in the 3 branches of government to target those who love God, America, and overall liberty is criminal and must be fought back against using the tools or nations’ founding fathers put in place.
One of these tools is the removal of them via impeachment.
Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body or other legally constituted tribunal initiates charges against a public official for misconduct. It may be understood as a unique process involving both political and legal elements.
According to the US Senate’s website: If a federal official commits a crime or otherwise acts improperly, the House of Representatives may impeach—formally charge—that official. If the official subsequently is convicted in a Senate impeachment trial, he is removed from office.
Unfortunately, though, the impeachment of those who are violating their authority and/or are involved in criminal activity is very rare and infrequently pursued.
This is why Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Tuesday and Thursday announcements that she has introduced and is filing Articles of Impeachment against President Joe Biden and U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves of the D.C. District in the same week, stands out so much.
During a press conference on Thursday Greene announced her actions against President Joe Biden similar to what the Democrats did when they introduced Articles of Impeachment against former President Donald Trump, that she did so with “solemnity.”
“It is with the highest amount of solemnity that I announce my intention to introduce articles of impeachment today on the head of this America-last executive branch, that has been working since Jan. 20, 2021, to systematically destroy this country, the president of the United States, Joseph Robinette Biden,” she said.

Earlier in the week On Tuesday the outspoken Republican surprisingly also introduced articles of impeachment against a witness testifying before a House Oversight Committee she sits on.
The Georgia Republican targeted U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves of the D.C. District, who has been overseeing the prosecutions — and confinement — of January 6 suspects.
Greene blasted Graves for failing to pursue charges for violations of existing federal laws and instead has been focusing on everyone at the U.S. Capitol Building the day of the riot, even those who did not destroy any property, harm anyone, or resist instructions from Capitol Police Officers, the Western Journal noted.
The congresswoman additionally called out Graves for not prosecuting individuals who committed crimes during the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots in the city.
In addition, she referenced several instances in which the U.S. attorney’s office in D.C. refused to effectively pursue violent criminals.
MTG also noted that Graves has the “unique ability to prosecute both local and federal cases.”
“However, Mr. Graves, your office has declined to prosecute 67 percent of those arrested in 2022,” Greene said.
“Instead, you are solely focused on prosecuting Jan. 6 cases from one single day in our history,” she noted further, adding that rates for murders, sexual abuse, and property crimes have shot up dramatically in the nation’s capital in the past couple of years.
“Just yesterday morning, a little innocent 12-year-old girl was shot while sleeping in her own bed by another rampant, violent criminal who has probably been previously arrested and not prosecuted,” she said before wondering aloud if the federal prosecutor believes that city residents are more concerned about “catching a stray bullet” or “a grandma walking through the Capitol more than two years ago.”
If other legislators would also do their job and use impeachment to purge those who are unfit for office, injustice and crony capitalism on Capitol Hill might actually become a rare occurence, not the status quo, especially for those on the left side of the aisle.
