WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is calling for the impeachment of President Joe Biden, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

At a press conference on Thursday, Greene introduced articles of impeachment against Biden, announcing that he "deliberately compromised our national security by refusing to enforce immigration laws and secure our border."

She noted that, since Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20, 2021, he has been working to "systematically destroy this country."

Greene charged that "he is a direct threat to our national security," and "unfit to serve as the president of the United States."

On Wednesday, Greene submitted impeachment papers against Garland, accusing him of "facilitating the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people."

She criticized Garland for failing to ensure the faithful execution of laws passed by Congress and signed by the president, and accused him of using his power to "punish or intimidate anyone who questions or opposes the current regime." 

Greene cited examples such as a 2021 memo from Garland portraying parents as domestic terrorists, the failure to investigate post-Dobbs attacks on Catholic churches and pregnancy centers, and the refusal to prosecute the Biden family and their associates for alleged crimes.

She summarized, "Attorney General Garland, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to the justice system of the United States of America if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with democracy, self-governance, and the rule of law."

This marks the second time Greene has filed impeachment articles against Garland. She previously did so in August 2022 after the raid on President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. She had also previously filed impeachment articles against Biden in 2021, condemning him for his involvement with Ukraine while he was vice president.

The previous attempts, however, yielded no results in the Democrat-majority House. The current Republican-led chamber may present a different outcome.

The time for weaponizing the Department of Justice needs to come to an end.

This comes after Greene, on Tuesday, brought up FBI Director Christopher Wray on charges of "facilitating the development of a Federal police force to intimidate, harass, and entrap American citizens that are deemed enemies of the Biden regime."

"Director Wray has become a lackey of the Biden regime, persecuting the enemies of his handlers, including both public and private citizens. The FBI has taken unprecedented actions to this end," she alleged.

The congresswoman provided examples such as the FBI's raid on Mar-a-Lago, the FBI's labeling of pro-lifers as terrorists according to whistleblower Garret O'Boyle, the arrest of Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck, the leaked FBI document targeting traditional Catholics, and the alleged kidnapping attempt of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The leaked January FBI internal memo claimed that Church Militant is part of "a growing overlap between the far-right white nationalist movement and RTCs." The latter is a reference to radical traditionalist Catholics.

At Thursday's press conference, Greene declared she initiated the impeachment process against Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. "He is devoting his entire office to maliciously prosecuting as many people as he possibly can including non-violent peaceful protesters," she declared. 

On Tuesday, she slammed Graves, citing him for "abuse of power."

"The time for weaponizing the Department of Justice needs to come to an end. And because you refuse to prosecute real criminals that are violating all the crimes here in Washington, D.C., and you want to talk about D.C. residents — they are victims of your abuse of power," she insisted.

Greene brought attention to the growing lawlessness in the U.S. capitol, citing the examples of Antifa and BLM riots that occurred almost daily starting with President Trump's inauguration in 2017.

"But all you hear about," she continued, "is a three-hour riot on one single day on Jan. 6, 2021."

She noted that Graves refused to prosecute 67% of violent criminals apprehended in 2022, but alleged that he is "solely focused on prosecuting January 6 cases from one single day in our history."

On Steve Bannon's show, she emphasized that the most important thing Republicans can do is to "use the power of impeachment and to use the power of the Holman Rule and to use the power we have in appropriations to end the Reign of Terror that has been brought on by Biden's Department of Justice and FBI."

In order for the impeachments to be successful, a simple majority is required in the House. The Senate then serves as a high court of impeachment and necessitates a two-thirds vote for conviction and removal of the official.
