On Wednesday, Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland alleging that he is “facilitating the weaponization and politicization” of the justice system, the Washington Examiner reported.
Greene introduced the impeachment articles against Garland just one day after she announced her efforts to impeach two other Biden administration officials.
In her articles of impeachment against Garland, Greene accused the attorney general of failing to uphold his oath of office and denigrating “the principles” of the Republic “by politicizing” the DOJ and using the FBI to “punish and intimidate” those who question or oppose the administration.
In making her case, Greene cites Garland’s refusal to prosecute Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters or the activists harassing and threatening Supreme Court justices.
Greene also accuses Garland of political bias, specifically in refusing to bring charges against the Biden family and their associates “for crimes they have committed at the expense of the American people.”
In a statement on Wednesday, Greene accused the attorney general of weaponizing the Justice Department, creating a “two-tiered justice system.” Greene also accused Garland of using the Justice Department to interfere with the 2024 election through its investigations of Donald Trump, which she described as “persecution.”
Earlier in the week, Greene introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray, alleging that he is using the FBI to harass, intimidate, and entrap Americans who are deemed enemies of the Biden administration. She alleged that Wray has transformed the FBI into President Biden and Attorney General Garland’s “personal police force.”
Greene also introduced impeachment articles against Matthew Graves, the US Attorney for the District of Columbia, for his refusal to prosecute violent crime in Washington DC while targeting the January 6 “political prisoners” for prosecution, which she described as “criminalizing political dissent.”
