Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) called for impeaching President Joe Biden from public office this Tuesday, following revelations that he kept classified documents at the Penn Biden Center in Washington D.C.
“According to a statement from Richard Sauber, the special counsel to the president, in November the president's personal attorneys discovered classified documents among what appear to be Obama-era records when the current president was vice president,” NPR reports. “The Archives collected the documents the morning after they were discovered and the matter is under review by the Justice Department.”
Many politicians and commentators have argued there is a stark inconsistency here. While the FBI raided Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago for classified documents, the investigation into Joe Biden is remarkably low profile. Indeed, the public did not know about the situation until this week, despite the fact the documents were turned over in November!
Marjorie Taylor Greene agreed with Biden's critics, saying. “This is a very serious situation. Vice Presidents cannot declassify documents. And the fact that Joe Biden is in possession of classified documents when he was Vice President, signals we need to have a serious investigation into this,” Greene told reporters from CSPAN.
“And there is a true two-tier justice system stemming from the department of justice in the way President Trump has been treated — who is allowed to classify and declassify documents. Presidents can do that, versus the Democrats, and Joe Biden, and how he is being treated,” Greene explained, reemphasizing that she will “impeach Biden… that is what we need to do.”
Greene notes that this is not the first time she has called to impeach Joe Biden. In fact, earlier this week, she called for the impeachment of Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a post to Truth Social:
“Joe Biden has failed the American People and Border Patrol Agents. The border is the most dangerous crisis in America and fentanyl is killing Americans every day,” the Georgia congresswoman wrote. “Impeach Joe Biden and Secretary Mayorkas!”
Impeachment or not, one thing is clear: we the people need answers.
