Merrick Garland About To Be Impeached?

A day after, Attorney General Merrick Garland said he personally ordered the FBI raid on the Florida residence of erstwhile President Donald Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said she had filed impeachment papers against Garland.



Hours after a judge unsealed search warrant documents showing the past president is being scrutinized for a prospective Espionage Act violation and conceivably obstructing justice, the Republican firebrand and firm associate of Trump said Garland is “endangering, undermining and compromising the justice system.

Greene stated in a video she tweeted, “What they’ve been doing to [former] President Trump is political persecution.” “Merrick Garland has abused his position of power as the attorney general to politically persecute [President] Joe Biden’s enemies. And the whole purpose of this is to prevent [former] President Trump from ever being able to hold office. I’m introducing articles of impeachment on Merrick Garland because we cannot tolerate this in America, where our great institutions are wielded and abused in such a way to impeach people’s political enemies.

There has been no movement on those articles of impeachment because Republicans are in the minority. If the Republican Party is successful in November and retakes the House of Representatives, that might soon change.

The resolution that Greene posted online comprises two articles of impeachment. Both sides accuse the attorney general of betraying his oath of office and the American people’s faith by failing to “execute the laws of the United States without partisan bias,” as Garland was sworn to do.

While legal experts are skeptical of Trump’s claim that there is a “standing order” by which he declassifies documents leaving the Oval Staff, the president insisted in a statement released by his office on Friday that the documents in question had been declassified.

Greene’s impeachment proceedings were applauded by fellow Republicans, including Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), who tweeted his approval on Friday night. Greene stated that Mary Miller (R-IL), Clay Higgins (R-LA), and Andy Harris (R-MD) were all involved in the impeachment articles’ creation.

Articles of impeachment written by Greene said Garland’s move to unseal the search warrant, which Trump did not dispute in court, “constitutes an attempt to intimidate, harass, and potentially disqualify a political challenger to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.”

The Wall Street Journal reviewed the inventory of the 20 boxes recovered by federal officials and found eleven sets of confidential info, and some labeled as top secret.

Last year, Greene presented three resolutions that together constituted articles of impeachment against Joe Biden. One explanation accused Biden of “dereliction of duty” for his response to the situation in Afghanistan, while another accused him of “usurping congressional authority and ignoring the judicial authority of the Supreme Court” for his administration’s eviction complete ban during the 2009 coronavirus pandemic. In January of 2021, Greene filed articles of impeachment of Joe Biden, based on his conduct as Vice President from 2008 to 2016, as well as his son Hunter Biden’s involvement in international business.
