The congresswoman cited the Biden administration selling American oil reserves.
- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has again introduced an impeachment resolution against President Joe Biden.
- Greene introduced the Articles of Impeachment against Biden Monday after the Department of Energy announced it was selling 10 million barrels of American oil.
- The oil was released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and is allegedly meant to offer relief for high gas prices, but will be sold to the highest bidder, even internationally.
- The congresswoman asserted that the president was going to create a national emergency crisis if his actions aren’t stopped.
- “I just introduced articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden. Joe Biden is selling our strategic petroleum reserves. This should never happen. He is draining our reserves and selling our oil. American’s oil to foreign countries and China is a top buyer,” Greene said Monday. “China’s our enemy, they are not our friend. They’re buying American’s oil.”
- “The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is our emergency supply, for if something goes wrong in this country, it’s now down to 434 million, barrels of oil, that is nearly half of what it was when President Trump left office. This is an outrage, this is completely wrong and no president of the United States should be doing this to the American people,” Greene said.
- “It’s going to create a national emergency crisis and that’s exactly what President Joe Biden is doing. This is the number HR 1362. Impeach Joe Biden,” Greene concluded.
READ THE BILL:
- This isn’t the first time Greene has brought forward articles of impeachment. One year ago, in August of 2021, she brought forward resolutions that alleged the need for impeachment due to Biden’s orders for Afghanistan and his violations of immigration law due to illegal immigration at the southern border.
- The third resolution focused on the president’s alleged usurping of the Constitutional balance by disregarding rulings by the Supreme Court.
- Greene also introduced Articles of Impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland last month, alleging he was “weaponization of the Department of Justice against Joe Biden’s chief political opponent, President Donald J. Trump.”
