President Biden has been hit with formal impeachment charges and has been accused of “treason.” The Articles of Impeachment have been filed in the House of Representatives. The impeachment charges were announced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Friday.
“I have introduced House Res. 57, these are Articles of Impeachment on President Biden,” Rep. Greene said. “For abuse of power in regards to his willingness to use his position of power to aid his son Hunter Biden in his business dealings.”
“I have also introduced another Article of Impeachment on President Biden, which is H. Res 597,” she continued. “This has to do with the national security crisis that President Biden has created with regards to the extreme threat at the southern border.”
“I have introduced House Res. 598, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden in regards to the failure in Afghanistan,” Rep. Greene went on. “And I have introduced House Res. 596, Articles of Impeachment on President Biden for the Covid eviction moratorium and his willingness to use his position to try to do what he shouldn’t be doing. We have three branches of power.”
“Joe Biden swore an oath, he said ‘I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and I will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States’ and he is failing to uphold his oath,” Rep. Greene added.
“Joe Biden is failing the American people by refusing to uphold the law and the Constitution,” she said. “But Afghanistan is where it really hurt. You see, Article III, Section 3, Joe Biden could be guilty of treason.”
“Our law says that levying war against the U.S., adhering to the enemies of the U.S., and giving ‘aid and comfort’ is treason,” Rep. Greene said. “President Biden did that by arming the Taliban with our taxpayer-funded U.S. equipment and weapons. He abandoned Americans in Afghanistan and seems to have no interest in getting them back.”
On Friday, Becker News reported that the State Department admitted in an “off-the-record” call that the U.S. government believes there are as many as six times as many Americans trapped in Afghanistan than the public has been told. The Washington Free Beacon broke the story, based on Capitol Hill sources.
“We now know this administration repeatedly lied to the world about the citizens of our country it abandoned in Afghanistan,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R.-CA), whose office has assisted with evacuating Americans, told the Free Beacon. “But it did something even worse: It broke a sacred bond of trust between Americans and their government. This isn’t close to over.”
In September, Becker News first reported that the State Department blocked private and humanitarian flights in and out of Afghanistan. Fox News later obtained leaked internal emails that provided further proof that the State Department hindered Americans’ efforts to exit the country.
Also in September, a ‘hostage crisis’ was reported at Mazar-i-Sharif airport in Northern Afghanistan, where the Taliban grounded flights of U.S. civilians seeking to flee the country. President Biden had broken his promise to get 100% of Americans out of the country, as an AP fact check pointed out.
“The bottom line: 90% of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to leave,” Biden claimed in remarks at the White House. “For those remaining Americans, there is no deadline. We remain committed to get them out, if they want to come out. Secretary of State Blinken is leading the continued diplomatic efforts to ensure safe passage for any American, Afghan partner or foreign national who wants to leave Afghanistan.”
“For the record, Biden vowed that he would get 100% of Americans out before withdrawing forces,” the AP fact check stated. “And his suggestions Tuesday that many of the remaining Americans are dual nationals who may be undecided about leaving do not reflect the full reality.”
“He contended 100 to 200 Americans are still there” and have “some intention to leave,” adding: “Most of those who remain are dual citizens, longtime residents, but earlier decided to stay because of their family roots in Afghanistan,” the AP noted. “And White House press secretary Jen Psaki said afterward that Biden is telling those people that if they decide in two weeks that they want to go, ‘we will get you out’.”
It is now nearly November, and a State Department off-the-record call reveals that the federal government estimates 600 Americans have been left behind in Afghanistan, while lying to the American people the entire time about the true number.
This isn’t the first time that Rep. Greene has submitted Articles of Impeachment against President Biden. In January, Greene introduced H. Res 57, Articles of Impeachment, which were Referred to the Subcommittee in March. In August, Greene introduced H. Res. 596 and H. Res. 597. Most recently, Greene filed H. Res. 598, which accuses the President of the United States of “dereliction of duty by leaving behind thousands of American civilians and Afghan allies, along with numerous taxpayer-financed weapons and military equipment, endangering the lives of the American people and the security of the United States.”
