The White House is melting down after this Republican threatened impeachment

The end is near for Joe Biden. And there’s nothing he can do about it.

And the White House is melting down after this Republican threatened impeachment.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., warned Monday she would initiate a privileged resolution to impeach President Biden this week over his handling of the border, which she characterized as a “permanent invasion of the United States.”

Greene said she considered invoking the resolution on Monday, but chose to consult with House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., first.

“I can force a vote this week,” Greene told reporters. “But you know what, I was gonna do it tonight but I decided I’m gonna go talk to our Republican elected Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, that I actually voted for [who] claims he supports Trump, and ask him if he’s gonna do something about it.”

Greene said she intends to discuss her privileged impeachment motion during a closed-door GOP conference meeting this week.

The decision comes as Biden prepares to issue an executive order cracking down on illicit border crossings between the United States and Mexico. If the average daily contacts at ports of entry surpasses 2,500, the directive is anticipated to halt asylum requests.

“When are we going to impeach Joe Biden”? Greene asked. “I’ve got articles of impeachment ready to go, privileged resolution. I’m happy to force everyone up here to vote because that’s what we should be doing.”

“Because here’s Joe Biden, he’s going to come out with his garbage executive orders on Wednesday, his permanent invasion of the United States of America plan where he sets a limit, a weekly limit. Here you go, everybody. You get to come in.”

She raged against a report that showed that the U.S. government has closed over 350,000 asylum petitions filed by migrants since 2022 because they do not have a criminal record or are not regarded as a threat to the U.S.

“So, you know what? Republicans need to grow a spine. They need to learn that this is our country, our America that we know is gone, because Democrats are willing to put every single one of their political opponents in prison.”

If Greene triggers the resolution on Tuesday or Wednesday, it will compel a vote within two legislative days, most likely with a procedural vote first on a motion to postpone or refer to a committee.

This would be procedurally identical to what happened with Rep. Boebert’s (R-Colo.) privileged resolution to impeach Biden in June. It would also be procedurally identical to what transpired with her decision to remove Johnson last month.

The vote could take place immediately after Greene’s resolution is triggered, but it could also be postponed until later in the day, the next day, or even until the House returns next week, as the chamber is leaving town on Wednesday to allow a congressional delegation to travel to Normandy for the D-Day anniversary.

If the move to table or refer fails, the House will vote on a privileged resolution to impeach Biden immediately.

At this point, it does not appear that there are enough votes to impeach Biden.

Greene added that if Johnson does not move to impeach Biden, she will try to force the issue.

“And if he says he won’t bring an impeachment resolution against him, I’ll just drop ’em on the floor,” Green stated.

“And then we can vote and see where everybody stands. So I’m mad, I’m mad…my people at home are mad. Everybody across this country are furious. We don’t want a banana republic. We want an actual legitimate government. We want a real justice system. We don’t have one.”
