Marjorie Taylor Greene urges impeachment of AG Merrick Garland

Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has made no secret of her desire to see a number of Biden administration officials subjected to impeachment proceedings, but as the lawmaker's recent social media posts reveal, Attorney General Merrick Garland is near the top of the list.

Underlying that position is Greene's belief that the Justice Department under Garland's leadership has employed a blatant double standard, dependent primarily on one's political party affiliation.

Specifically, the GOP firebrand slammed Garland on Twitter for what she called his “refusal to prosecute Joe and Hunter Biden while persecuting President Trump and many conservatives.”

Such conduct, Greene declared, is “grounds for impeachment,” and she further asserted that it would be “absolutely unacceptable to allow these criminals to maintain power.”

To that end, as the Washington Examiner notes, Greene this week introduced articles of impeachment against Garland, alleging that he is “facilitating the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people.”

In Greene's articles, the legislator explained, “Attorney General Garland has failed to uphold his oath and has instead overseen a denigration of the principles of our democratic republic by politicizing the Department of Justice, and utilizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a Federal police force to punish or intimidate anyone who questions or opposes the current regime.”

Specific allegations against Garland in Greene's articles include his refusal to prosecute “Antifa and Black Lives Matters rioters” as well as “leftist extremists that harassed and threatened Supreme Court Justices.”

In support of her assertion that Garland has weaponized the DOJ and persecuted political adversaries of the left, Greene said in a statement that the prosecution of former President Donald Trump “is a transparent violation of justice. Persecuting a declared candidate for president of the United States is nothing short of election interference.”

Jocularly declaring last week to be “impeachment week,” Greene also filed articles against U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Greene stated, “Under Wray's watch, the FBI has intimidated, harassed, and entrapped American citizens that have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime. As such, director Wray has turned the FBI into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland's personal police force.”

Garland, Wray, and Graves are by no means the only administration official in Greene's impeachment crosshairs, and she recently reminded her social media followers that she has also already filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden very early on in his tenure.

“We already knew many of the crimes he committed then, but now we know so much more in just 6 months of a Republican-led House thanks to the important investigative work being done on @GOPOversight,” Greene tweeted.

The congresswoman pointed to a host of scandals that have already encircled the White House and suggested that there is likely more to come, writing, “Last weekend it was cocaine in the West Wing. What are we going to find out next?? That the Biden family was involved in a human trafficking ring buying Ukrainian and Russian prostitutes? That Joe received $5 million in a foreign bribery pay-to-play scheme as VP? Oh, wait....”

Though Greene clearly believes there is a nearly limitless list of reasons to impeach Garland, Biden, and a number of other high-ranking administration officials, but in an interview last month, she expressed frustration at her Republican colleagues who have yet to act, asking rhetorically that if GOP lawmakers do not get on board and demonstrate resolve in this realm, “then why do [Americans] want to vote for us?”
