Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) announced on Thursday that she has filed articles of impeachment against US President Joe Biden, only a day after he was sworn into office.
The text of Greene’s articles of impeachment specifying any impeachable offenses committed by Biden was not immediately available. But Greene indicated that the articles accuse Biden of abusing his power while serving as US vice president by allowing his son, Hunter, to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
“US President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing. President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies,” Greene said in a statement, The Hill reported.
Biden has denied making any policy decisions toward Ukraine while taking his son’s business interests into consideration.
An investigation by Senate Republicans last year into corruption allegations against the Bidens found no evidence of wrongdoing by the current president. The report, released last September, also did not find evidence that Hunter Biden’s work for the Ukrainian company, Burisma, influenced US foreign policy.
