In a recent appearance on Newsmax, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) hinted at her desire to initiate impeachment proceedings against Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg. The discussion revolved around House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, although no concrete evidence of misconduct by President Biden has been made public by the party.
During the September 12 broadcast, Greene asserted that “the White House is freaking out right now” while acknowledging the challenges of garnering sufficient support in the House for an impeachment vote. The chances of the Senate voting to remove President Biden, she noted, are extremely slim.
Newsmax host Eric Bolling joined in on the conversation, suggesting the possibility of impeaching other individuals. He asked, “By the way, can you impeach other, more people than just Biden?” Greene responded with enthusiasm, “Yeah!” Bolling then mentioned names like Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, and Attorney General Merrick Garland, with Greene expressing her support for such actions.
Furthermore, Greene’s long-standing history of targeting Pete Buttigieg was highlighted during this discussion. In the past, she had made controversial remarks, including insinuations about Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, involving girls’ bathrooms, a comment widely criticized as an attack on his sexuality. Additionally, Greene accused Buttigieg of attempting to reshape transportation policy in a way that she believed would “emasculate” traditional driving practices.
While the prospect of impeachment remains a contentious and challenging process, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ongoing focus on Pete Buttigieg and her willingness to entertain impeachment discussions further underscore the political divisions within the United States.
