Donald Trump’s complicated presidency just got a little stranger, as he has now become the only President to ever be impeached twice.
His first brush with constitutional demerits came after a phone call with the President of the Ukraine, and took months of bureaucratic slog to finally culminate. His second, however, comes just one week after Democrats, (and some Republicans), say that Trump “incited” an “insurrection” at the Capitol.
But now it looks like incoming President Joe Biden may himself make history, being the first Commander in Chief to face impeachment on his second day in office.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the newly elected Republican from Georgia, took to Twitter Wednesday to announce that she will be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden a day after the inauguration.
She said her motivation is to stand up for the 75 million Americans who are “fed up with inaction” in government.
“It’s time to take a stand,” she said. “I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.”
Specifics about Greene’s plan were not readily available.
The congresswoman did not specify what exact charge she will level against Biden, but she tweeted out the now-famous panel discussion at the Council on Foreign Relations where Biden talked about how he urged Ukrainian officials to fire Viktor Shokin, the country’s prosecutor in 2015, while he was vice president. Biden has denied any wrongdoing.
Greene’s office and the Biden transition team did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.
It is unclear if Greene’s proposal will find fans within the GOP, who are already straining to keep the part together.
