Marjorie Taylor Greene says Americans should ‘in line’ on impeachments

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is urging Americans to support her “impeachment week” after she submitted articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves, and promised more were in the works.

The Georgia Republican announced impeachment efforts on Tuesday, a day after Special Counsel John Durham released his findings on collusion between former President Donald Trump or his administration and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. .

Rumors of collusion began circulating when high-profile politicians, including Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, blamed his election defeat on alleged Russian interference.

Durham’s explosive report, released on Monday, concluded that the FBI should never have investigated Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. The findings dealt a blow to the bureau, saying the FBI had no evidence of collusion when it launched its Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Durham was named to lead the investigation in October 2019 after Trump pushed former attorney general William Barr to investigate the FBI probe. In his 300-page report, he said the Justice Department and FBI “failed to fulfill their important mission” and that the origins of the investigation were based on “raw, unanalyzed and unsubstantiated intelligence. “.

In response to Monday’s report, the FBI said Newsweek in a statement that the conduct highlighted by Durham had already been corrected by “dozens of corrective measures” which “had been in place for some time”.

“Had these reforms been in place in 2016, the missteps identified in the report could have been avoided,” the statement said. “This report reinforces the importance of ensuring that the FBI continues to do its job with the thoroughness, objectivity, and professionalism that the American people rightly deserve and expect.”

Despite intense scrutiny from conservatives saying the office abused its powers, the chances of Wray or Graves being impeached and removed from office are slim due to a two-thirds majority vote both in the GOP-led House and Democratic-controlled Senate needed for conviction.

In the articles of impeachment, Greene calls Wray a “lackey of the Biden regime” who has “persecuted political opponents in an unprecedented and partisan way.”

Greene, in an online statement and a series of Twitter posts, criticized the FBI under Wray’s leadership, saying the bureau used “Soviet-style tactics” against Americans.

“Under Wray’s watch, the FBI intimidated, harassed and entrapped American citizens who were deemed enemies of the Biden regime,” the Georgia lawmaker said. “As such, Director Wray has transformed the FBI into the personal police force of Joe Biden and Merrick Garland. .”

While speaking with fellow Trump-ally Steve Bannon on his Crisis unit podcast, Greene admitted she doesn’t have GOP support. She said Americans who cared about justice should “queue up and give as much support as possible.”

“I don’t need the support of the conference to file articles of impeachment if I have the support of the American people,” she says.

Green said on Twitter on Monday evening she has a lot of support.

“My office phones have been ringing with support!! Today we heard from countless people supporting my articles of impeachment against U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves and FBI Director Christopher Wray,” a- she declared. “They want to impeach everyone. It’s amazing. More to come. #ImpeachmentWeek.”

It is one of several impeachment attempts by the incendiary Republican, who called on Wray, appointed to his post by Trump in 2017, to be ousted in 2022 after the FBI executed a search warrant for classified documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.

Newsweek reached out to representatives for Greene via email and Twitter. The FBI National Press Office said in an email to Newsweek that the office “has no comment” on Greene’s introduction of impeachment articles.

Greene also wanted to remove Attorney General Merrick Garland for the “political persecution” of Trump after he approved of the FBI’s raid on the former president’s estate.

In January, she called for the removal of President Joe Biden and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for their handling of the migrant issue at the US-Mexico border.

“Joe Biden has failed the American people and the Border Patrol agents,” Greene said in a Truth Social article. “The border is America’s most dangerous crisis and fentanyl is killing Americans every day. Impeach Joe Biden and Secretary Mayorkas!”
