Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) formally filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, saying that Biden was the “head of this America-last executive branch” and that since taking office the president has been working “to systematically destroy this country.”
The Georgia Republican held a press conference this week in which she said that she filed the articles “with the highest amount of solemnity.”
Greene’s impeachment resolution states that Biden acted “in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States.”
She said that the president “abused the power of the Office of the President by endangering the security of the United States and thwarting the will of Congress as set forth in duly enacted law.”
The resolution cites “violation of the immigration laws” and refusing to build a border wall among other factors.
"Americans lives are in danger and our entire country is in danger."

Taylor Greene’s articles of impeachment stated that Biden “gravely endangered the security of the United States, the health and safety of the American people and its institutions of government.”
Greene also filed articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray this week.
The representative previously filed articles of impeachment against Biden in 2021, two days after the president took office. In that effort, Taylor Greene called Biden a “threat to national security.”
The current move is one of several high-profile actions regarding the Biden administration and other Democratic officials.
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) introduced a resolution to expel Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). The expulsion effort relates to a number of claims he made during former President Donald Trump’s time in the White House.
Schiff repeatedly asserted that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Russian government to sway the election. His arguments were recently contradicted by a report by special counsel John Durham.
Several Republican members of Congress introduced articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, including Greene.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) accused the secretary of being the “chief architect of the migration and drug invasion at our southern border.”
Biggs said that Mayorkas’ conduct “incentivized more than five million illegal aliens to show up at our southern border — an all-time figure.”
