Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia is making it clear that she is dissatisfied with the current state of affairs as 2024 unfolds, especially when it comes to addressing the border crisis. She is focused on broadening President Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry and has outlined her plans for the beginning of the year.
In a detailed interview on Tuesday, Greene emphasized her determination to hold House Speaker Mike Johnson accountable for the GOP commitments made during the 2022 elections. As part of her agenda for 2024, she intends to:
- Initiate an ethics complaint or a motion of censure against Rep. Eric Swalwell of California for his involvement in Hunter Biden’s Capitol Hill press conference, which went against the first son’s mandatory deposition in the impeachment inquiry.
- Introduce privileged motions weekly to force votes on impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, putting pressure on House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green to expedite the process.
- Advocate for expanding Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry to address the administration’s failure in enforcing immigration laws. Greene stressed the frustration felt by Americans over the GOP’s failure to impeach Mayorkas, considering it outrageous. She insisted that impeachment of Joe Biden over the border issue should be a consideration, even suggesting holding individuals accountable for treason in relation to the situation at the southern border.
When asked about the possibility of suggesting a charge of treason or a related offense in connection to the border crisis as part of House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s impeachment inquiry, Greene insisted, “It should be 100%. It should be. But I think it’s a lower percentage of my Republican colleagues that would actually go there.”
“We should be impeaching Joe Biden over the border. And I’m starting to think impeachment is not enough. I think these people should be held accountable for treason over what is happening at our southern border.”
The second-term congresswoman made her position clear: she is determined to apply pressure, persuade, and, if needed, publicly confront GOP leadership if they fail to fulfill their essential 2022 “Commitment to America” pledges. These commitments span various issues, including FISA reform and efforts to reduce the size and expenditure of the government.
“I don’t understand many of them,” she said of her GOP conference members. “I don’t. I’m mad at my own conference right now. I’m upset that our leadership and our new Speaker hasn’t done more to reflect what our voters want, because I think that’s what we should be doing, and actually just do the right thing. It’s easy to do the right thing. But no, we just don’t.”
