Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who previously filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden for his family's alleged decades of profiteering off his political career, is continuing to suggest the Democrat should face the process.
"Joe Biden is FULLY compromised by Communist China," she tweeted Friday evening. "He must be IMPEACHED!"
Fox News host Tucker Carlson previously accused the president of being compromised by China, along with other elites in Washington, D.C. He pointed to a leaked video of Di Dongsheng, a professor at Renmin University in Beijing, China, who claimed Biden's presidency is favorable to the East Asian country. Di also claimed China has multiple officials in high levels of the United States government.
Whether Biden is compromised or not, Portuguese political scientist Bruno Maçães argued in an op-ed for Foreign Policy that the head of state is "complacent" in his approach to the superpower. According to the author, Biden does not realize the potential of China's Communist model to create and control advanced technologies. Instead, Maçães argued the president — along with others in Washington — naively believes China is doomed for failure due to a lack of democracy.
Just one day after her Friday tweet, Greene again pushed for Biden's impeachment on Twitter and pointed to a Fox News article that reported on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee's investigation into newly released emails that suggest the head of state's son introduced him to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2015.
"The evidence is there. Joe Biden in the Oval Office is a national security threat. 'The Big Guy' must be IMPEACHED!"The article noted the emails were obtained by the New York Post and suggested the former vice president was introduced to the executive less than one year before he pushed for the firing of prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the natural gas company.
According to GOP Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, his team regularly speaks with individuals who email its whistleblower account to determine if their claims can be validated.
"Although we consider those communications to be confidential, because the individual in this instance spoke with the media about his contact with the committee, we can confirm receipt of his email complaint, have been in contact with the whistleblower, and are in the process of validating the information he provided."Still, Ukrainian ex-prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko noted many people pushed for Shokin's firing outside of Biden due to the former prosecutor's alleged failure to prosecute corruption. In addition, Lutsenko said any potential embezzlement that took place at Burisma was two or three years before Biden's son was present on their board.
As reported by The Hill, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he spoke to Greene about her efforts to impeach Biden and disagreed with her plan due to his perception that she was doing so for "purely political reasons."
