    In the news....
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene vows to file articles of impeachment against Biden
    Excerpted....
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the newly elected Republican from Georgia, took to Twitter Wednesday to announce that she will be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden a day after the inauguration.
    She said her motivation is to stand up for the 75 million Americans who are "fed up with inaction" in government.

    Back to me...
    Oh, dear.
    The Democrats who immediately upon losing leapt to impeachment are fools.
    The Republicans who immediately leap upon losing to impeachment are fools aping fools.

    Other thoughts are welcome.

    This humorous. While it is true the democrats were poised right at the gate to lay the groundwork to impeach Trump, it was because they saw what could be illegal activities that he as president was already trying to cover up, such as shady business dealings with foreign entities. In other words, it had some justification in their minds for something he personally did, or was involved in (time is proving those assumptions correct).

    In the case of impeaching Biden? Hahaha. "Fed up with inaction" is why we have elections. That has nothing to do with Joe Biden personally. Trump's impeachment were about him personally.

    Oh well, making a name for themselves is all this is. Grandstanding. And you are right, it's a child's mind "tit for tat", as seen through the eyes of a child's sense of fairness and rightness who can't understand the differences in the details. :)

    I'm going to assume she's never read Mueller's report. She may not have even heard of it with that.
    And I'm going to assume she has no respect for our elections.
    Get rid of them all. Especially as her state has repeatedly verified Trump lied.

    What is wrong with these Republicans? We had an election. Biden won. Democrats will control both houses of Congress, so it will go nowhere. This is the definition of political grandstanding.

    I propose a solution to these continual impeachments....
    If the Senate fails to garner more than 54% votes to convict,
    those filing for it must do a Game Of Thrones Walk Of Shame.
    That'll give'm pause.

    The story does not even say what the grounds are for impeachment are supposed to be. I am betting that this is just a twitter grandstand that will go no further than this.

    How on earth is this "tit for tat" ?? The idea of impeaching Biden is pure, 100% posturing. The idea of impeaching trump is because he incited a (thankfully failed), insurrection.

    Both parties show intent to impeach ASAP without
    due consideration of the charges & chances of
    conviction. It looked & looks like mere petulence.

    Note that I'm not referring to Trump's current
    impeachment woe, which is quite appropriate
    based upon evidence & gravity.

    Hitting me with mere knee jerk liberal sloganeering?
    Come on....give me something thought thru.

    Dems experienced premature ejacupeachment based
    upon ill considered charges & certainty of failure to convict.
    Some Pubs want to do the same.
    Or are you defending Republican efforts to immediately
    impeach Biden?

    Part and parcel of the ongoing polarization of America. It shouldn't be surprising.

    "The congresswoman did not specify what exact charge she will level against Biden, but she tweeted out the now-famous panel discussion at the Council on Foreign Relations where Biden talked about how he urged Ukrainian officials to fire Viktor Shokin, the country’s prosecutor in 2015, while he was vice president. Biden has denied any wrongdoing."​

    Not specifying a charge on which to impeach someone before bringing impeachment to a trial sounds like foolishness to me. It may be that Biden abused his office in the Ukraine, but if she can't get specific about her charge, it's already a waste of time.

    It seems just a tantrum to me.
    It's all....
    "Let's impeach!
    We'll figure out what for as we proceed.
    We're sure something will pop up."

    Let's hope that impeachment of the incoming
    President isn't the new norm.

    I think it's also over the Russian thingy as some still have not accepted Mueller's findings.

    His findings were too weak to win.
    But aside from that, do you think impeaching
    Biden has merit....or is it mere tit for tat?


    Hmmm....this would be highly unusual..
    2 different Presidents being impeached concurrently.

    Just like the Biden Laptop and all the other claims made by those on the sour-right, there is no foundation for the claims. But I understand dirty politics and republicans are king of that.

    Wow wow ... your post is reasonable. We don't need that on RF. And we definitely don't need to understand each other. Just throw accusations at each other and slap meaningless labels on one another. That's how we should really do things.

    May I suggest that perhaps the most accurate assumption you can make here -- in you make any at all -- is that she is a realist who understands how to appeal to her base and solidify their support for her. Take that a step further to grasp she has no choice these days. Her constituents will turn on her in an instant if she fails to endorse and amplify their views and convictions.

    That's not even an assumption, Wolf. There's plenty of evidence for it. She's not ignorant. She's not dumb. She's not a lunatic. She's in touch with her base and she knows the consequences of her actions. My brother has a friend. A Republican who has held statewide elected office. Several years back she got out of politics. Things had gone further than she herself was willing to go. You don't seem too fond of Republicans, but whether you believe me or not, Colorado lost a competent, proven executive that year.

    Dems in Congress said they were going to impeach Trump before he became President? When did that happen?
