Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has demanded that lawmakers “impeach Biden” over the Democrat president’s mishandling of classified documents during his time as vice president.
As Slay News reported, Biden was referred to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for investigation after the classified documents were found in a private office.
The documents, which reportedly related to Ukraine and Iran dated between 2013 and 2016, were found at the president’s vice presidential office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington.
Democrats and their allies in the media have been trying to downplay the discovery by comparing it to the alleged claim that former President Donald Trump safely stored documents at Mar-a-Lago.
However, Greene explained the stark difference between Biden’s mishandling of documents compared to the allegations against Trump.
“This is a very serious situation,” Greene told C-Span.
“Vice presidents cannot declassify documents,” the congresswoman noted.
“And the fact that Joe Biden is in possession of classified documents when he was vice president, signals we need to have a serious investigation into this.
“There is a true two-tier justice system stemming from the department of justice in the way President Trump has been treated — who is allowed to classify and declassify documents.
“Presidents can do that,” she said.
“I’ll echo again, impeach Biden,” she added.
The trove of sensitive documents at the University of Pennsylvania’s “think tank” raises national security concerns.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the third highest-ranking House Republican, asked why the FBI had not raided Biden’s homes or the University of Pennsylvania in relation to its raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.
“Where is the FBI raid on the Joe Biden crime family after the revelations that he stole classified materials while serving as vice president and stored these documents at Biden’s ‘think tank’ that has received over $50 million in Chinese gifts?” she said in a statement.
“The American people do not trust Joe Biden’s FBI and Department of Justice who have consistently tipped the scale of justice to fulfill their political ambitions and attack their political opponents.
“Joe Biden and his corrupt DOJ must be held accountable.”
In September, Biden slammed Trump on 60 Minutes as “irresponsible” for allegedly keeping classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.
“How could that possibly happen?” Biden said about Trump’s documents at Mar-a-Lago.
“How anyone could be that irresponsible?”
“And I thought, what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?” Biden added.
