U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has announced that she is turning her articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray into a privileged resolution.
The Washington Examiner explains the significance of this move by Greene, writing:
By turning the resolution into a privileged resolution, House procedures will dictate that the resolution should be voted on by the chamber within two days, even without the approval of House leadership.
In other words, Greene is going to force each and every member of the U.S. House of Representatives to go on the record as either supporting or opposing the impeachment of Wray.
Green made the announcement Wednesday on Twitter.
"I’m turning my Articles of Impeachment on Wray into a privileged resolution," Greene wrote.
Wray first introduced these articles of impeachment against Wray in mid-May.
In this document, Greene made two big accusations against Wray.
Greene first accuses Wray of "facilitating the development of a Federal police force to intimidate, harass, and entrap American citizens that are deemed enemies of the Biden regime." Here, Greene cited, among other things, the FBI's unprecedented August 2022 raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
Greene then accuses Wray, as the leader of the FBI, of taking "actions to shield and protect the current President and his family." Here, Greene cited the FBI's alleged involvement in covering up the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Wednesday, on Twitter, Greene reiterated this allegation, writing, "Wray is a bad cop hiding Joe Biden’s crimes and must be held accountable."
Greene, in her tweet, also made reference to something that has happened since she first introduced her articles of impeachment against Wray, namely, the fact that Wray - after much delay - decided to finally allow House Republicans to see a redacted version of an FBI document - based on a source the FBI has described as "highly credible" - in which is detailed an alleged $10 million bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Ukraine.
Greene, on Wednesday, wrote:
Christopher Wray spit in our faces and disrespected our Oversight Committee and our Chairman [Rep. James] Comer [R-KY] by forcing us to see redacted versions of UNCLASSIFIED 1023 forms that gave proof of then VP Joe Biden taking a $5 million dollar bribe.
Greene said that she will not "tolerate this level of disrespect and pure criminal corruption."
It is unclear, at the time of this writing, when the House will vote on Greene's articles of impeachment against Wray.
