Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican, has demanded that the Republican-controlled House censure Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The Georgia Republican advocated for the impeachment of both Garland and US Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves.
In a recent tweet, she criticized the attorney general, stating that his “refusal to prosecute Joe and Hunter Biden while persecuting President Trump and many conservatives is grounds for impeachment” and that “it is inexcusable to allow these criminals to remain in power.”
She mentioned in another tweet that she moved to impeach Biden shortly after his inauguration.
“I filed Articles of Impeachment on Joe Biden’s first full day in office,” she wrote. “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.”
However, the House GOP leadership does not appear anxious to act.
“House Republicans have introduced multiple impeachment resolutions against President Joe Biden, focused largely on what they call lax enforcement of the U.S. border with Mexico. Other House impeachment efforts target Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on the border issue and over investigations, or lack thereof, regarding bad boy presidential son Hunter Biden,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“But just because a batch of high-profile House Republicans are pushing to oust Biden and members of his team from office doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. House Republican leaders have many considerations on the impeachment front. Starting, of course, with whether evidence exists to warrant a removal attempt. Then there’s the potential political blowback should the narrow House majority move ahead, considering impeachment efforts are virtually guaranteed to fail in the Senate, where there’s nowhere near a two-thirds majority willing to convict,” the outlet added.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and other members of the House leadership have expressed ambivalence toward the impeachment procedure.
In the first half of 2023, Biden’s net approval rating fell by more than four points, causing Americans to be extremely concerned as the 2024 presidential election approaches.
According to a survey by Echelon Insights, a stunning one-third of respondents said they planned to vote for someone other than Biden in the Democratic primary prior to the 2024 election.
60% of respondents indicated they would “definitely” or “probably” support Biden in the Democratic presidential primary if it were held today, according to the poll. Another 33% indicated that they would support a different Democrat, while 7% were undecided.
“In the same poll, Biden receives more support when the names of two Democratic primary challengers—environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and self-help author Marianne Williamson—are included in a question about who voters would back in a Democratic presidential primary,” Newsweek reported.
Similar results have been found in other recent polls, indicating that the performance of the Biden administration has been so worrisome that some Democrats are considering a different candidate for 2024 as Biden declines physically and mentally.
“In April, Biden formally announced he is seeking a second term in the White House, with polling showing he is the firm frontrunner to be the Democrats’ 2024 presidential candidate, potentially setting up a rematch against Donald Trump. Thus Biden’s popularity is likely to play a key role in determining who serves as president from January 2025 onwards,” the outlet noted further.
