Conservative firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (D-GA) is firmly and loudly behind the impeachment of U.S. Attorney Gen. Merrick Garland. She accused the AG of “weaponizing the DOJ” and misusing its considerable power to target President Joe Biden’s enemies.
Further laying out her justifications, Greene noted that Garland has targeted parents who dared speak out against liberal indoctrination and grooming in schools.
Further, he used DOJ power against Christians and pro-life advocates, and he raided the home of a former president. Simply put, Greene declared, “he must be impeached.”

According to articles of impeachment the Georgia representative prepared, Garland violated his constitutional duty through his actions as AG. Instead, he “continues to materially endanger the justice system of the United States and empower (Biden) to persecute his political adversaries at will.”
Greene hardly stopped with Garland.
She also had articles of impeachment prepared against FBI Director Christopher Wray and Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.
In a release, the Republican noted that Wray transformed the bureau into Biden and Garland’s “personal police force.” Greene alleged that those considered enemies of the Biden administration have been “intimidated, harassed, and entrapped.”
As evidence, she recalled the Michigan couple who were acquitted in the 2020 plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D). Defense attorneys convinced the jury that the FBI entrapped the pair and persuaded them to participate in the plan.
She also referenced the FBI’s unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home. She stated her belief that Trump did not break laws in having the classified documents there.
As Greene said in the media release, it is wrong for people in positions of power such as the Director of the FBI to attack one political class while demonstrating favoritism for another.
As for Graves, Greene told the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday that he chooses not to prosecute 67% of people arrested by D.C. law enforcement. Yet he continues to relentlessly pursue charges against Jan. 6 participants.
She called his failure to prosecute “real criminals” in Washington D.C. an “abuse of power.”
