“QAnon Congresswoman” Says She’ll File Impeachment Articles Against Joe Biden on January 21
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has said she will file articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on the day after he takes the oath of office as the nation’s 46th president. Greene, who has become known in some quarters as the “QAnon Congresswoman” because of her previous support of the conspiracy theory, told conservative outlet Newsmax that she would seek to impeach Biden next week.
“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a President of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies, so on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” Greene told the network’s Greg Kelly.

The basis of her impeachment claims appears to be unsubstantiated allegations about Biden’s activities as vice president under former President Barack Obama and it seems likely she is also making reference to unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing against his son, Hunter Biden.
As Democrats control the House of Representatives, there is zero prospect that Greene’s impeachment articles would be adopted, much less that Biden could face trial in the Senate, which will soon be under Democratic control as well. Her fellow House Republican, Congressman Adam Kinzinger, suggested her comments on impeachment were fame-seeking.
“This name will be one forgotten by next January. Politics for fame is headed out the door, the adults will return,” Kinzinger tweeted on Thursday morning. He was one of just 10 Republicans in the House to vote in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump on Wednesday.
