On Friday, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene filed H. Res. 1318, articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland for his weaponization of the Department of Justice against Joe Biden’s chief political opponent, President Donald J. Trump.
Congresswoman Greene released the following statement:
“Merrick Garland has weaponized the DOJ and unleashed the FBI to target, harass, and persecute Joe Biden’s political enemies.
The unprecedented raid on President Trump’s home is the type of tyrannical action that happens just before a country falls into a violent dictatorship.
Our justice system should never be used to intimidate political opposition simply because the party in power is afraid to lose that power. In this case, abusing the DOJ to prevent President Trump from heading back to the White House.
The Attorney General’s actions are a disgrace and a stain on our great nation. Merrick Garland should be impeached, convicted, and removed from office.”
Currently, Representatives Andy Harris, Clay Higgins, and Mary Miller are cosponsors.
