House Dems Mount Effort to Punish Georgia Rep. Greene
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats are mounting an effort to formally rebuke, a newly elected Georgia Republican.
The effort is in retribution because she filed articles of impeachment against President Biden, only a day after he was sworn into office.
Greene accused Biden of abusing his power while serving as vice president by allowing his son, Hunter, to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
"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.
Democrats have teed up action Wednesday to send a resolution to the floor that would strip Greene of assignments on the House education and budget committees, if Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy doesn’t do so first.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says Greene needs to be held accountable. Greene says Democrats will regret the move if Republicans regain the majority after the 2022 elections.
