MTG Introduces Articles of Impeachment Against Attorney General Merrick Garland
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the firebrand congresswoman colloquially known as MTG, has introduced articles of impeachment against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland (D).
Greene discussed the proposal on Wednesday, citing the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice (DOJ) by Garland as the reason behind his potential impeachment.
“Merrick Garland has weaponized the DOJ against Joe Biden’s political enemies,” the Georgia congresswoman said.
“He’s targeted parents who are concerned about their children’s education, targeted Christians and pro-life activists & raided the home of a President,” Greene continued, adding: “He must be impeached.”
The articles of impeachment state that Garland had abused his position as attorney general and facilitated “the weaponization and politicization of the United States justice system against the American people.”
“In his conduct as Attorney General of the United States, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of the Attorney General of the United States, and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend, the Constitution of the United States, Merrick Brian Garland continues to materially endanger the justice system of the United States and empower President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., to persecute his political adversaries at will,” the articles of impeachment state.
“Attorney General Garland has failed to uphold his oath and has instead overseen a denigration of the principles of our democratic republic by politicizing the Department of Justice, and utilizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a Federal police force to punish or intimidate anyone who questions or opposes the current regime,” the articles continue.
Greene went on to note that Garland had “completely weaponized” the DOJ, which she referred to as “the Department of ‘Injustice’” — arguing that the weaponization led to the “persecution of the left’s political enemies.”
In the articles of impeachment, Greene specifically cites the infamous memorandum from the DOJ that labeled parents who were protesting inappropriate behavior and books in the school system as domestic terrorists.
“Attorney General Garland issued an October 2021 memorandum directing the targeting of parents by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the articles state. “Garland’s memorandum was prompted by a letter to President Joe Biden by the National School Boards Association (NSBA). That letter drew comparisons between parents protesting actions by their local school boards to domestic terrorism. Attorney General Garland has declared war on American parents and the constitutional right of free speech.”
She also cites the DOJ’s refusal to properly investigate the spate of attacks on pro-life organizations that resulted from the Supreme Court’s historic overturning of Roe v. Wade.
“Garland’s Department of Justice refused to designate violent pro-abortion groups such as Jane’s Revenge as domestic terrorist organizations,” the articles state. “As of early May, there have been at least 85 attacks on pregnancy resource centers and 152 attacks on Catholic churches since the May 2022 Dobbs leak.”
Greene went on to write that Garland “refused to prosecute leftist extremists that harassed and threatened Supreme Court Justices at their homes in the wake of Dobbs decision.”
The articles also cite the persecution of former President Donald Trump “over documents he legally declassified” — and the refusal to “prosecute the Biden family and its associates for the crimes they have committed at the expense of the American people.”
Greene sent out a press release about the articles of impeachment, which was obtained by Fox News.
“Garland has used the FBI as a personal police force for his boss, Joe Biden,” the press release stated. “From investigating parents who protest their local school boards, to going after pro-life activists and Catholics, to persecuting former and future President Donald J. Trump, Merrick Garland’s corruption knows no bounds.”
Speaking with The Gateway Pundit, a representative from Greene’s office revealed that this week is going to be an “impeachment week” against corrupt government officials.
This news comes after Greene also introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves on Tuesday.
