On Thursday in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for the prosecution of Joe Biden. Her demand follows the FBI’s authorization for her and other members of the House Oversight Committee to examine a document containing criminal allegations against Biden, provided by an informant.
During her discussion with the Daily Caller, Greene shared details about the document that she and other members examined at a highly secure facility called the sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).
The Daily Caller reported (bolding added for emphasis):
Greene told the Caller that the information in the document “implicates Joe Biden in a pay-to-play scheme bribery scheme to get a prosecutor fired that was investigating Burisma where Hunter Biden sat on the board.” She also said the FBI informant is “extremely credible,” before arguing that the document “implicates our national security” and puts Americans “at risk” amid the war in Ukraine.
“This is an impeachable document. President Biden should be impeached. Secondly, he should be prosecuted. This is unbelievable. It’s a pay-to-play scheme. He took a bribe from a from a foreign national in a foreign country that paid millions of dollars,” Greene added. “He needs to be prosecuted for this, and I would argue that he should serve jail time.”
“If we were not politically divided, if we were the United States that used to exist, that is righteous and just, if we were a just nation, Joe Biden would be impeached. No one could argue with this. Democrat or Republican, I would say no one can argue with it now,” she continued.
During a press briefing earlier today, Greene summarized the allegations of the bribery scheme involving Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, calling the activities “definitely illegal.” According to the Congresswoman, the information she disclosed originated from the document she reviewed, which was obtained through a paid FBI informant.
“Reading this form today shows the pure distinction. This information, this source that came forward, it’s a paid informant by the FBI,” said MTG. She made it clear that the information in question was unrelated to the claims brought forward by Rudy Giuliani in 2020 and “extremely credible.”
“Basically, what’s happening there is back in 2015-2016, Burisma was looking to buy a U.S.-based oil and gas company, and this came from being advised by Hunter Biden and his partners,” MTG explained.
Burisma Holdings, a prominent Ukrainian company, has gained recognition worldwide due to the appointment of Hunter Biden to its board of directors in 2014. The company stands as one of the leading private natural gas producers in Ukraine.
She also detailed claims of explicit bribes, alleging Burisma paid $5 million to two members of the Biden family. According to Greene, these payments were intended to secure the removal of Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma. She went on to suggest that bribery is a prevalent practice in Ukraine and Russia, often factored into budgeting for business transactions.
“Donor Burisma said that Hunter was stupid and that his other business partner was smart. He also said that he paid five million to one Biden, and he paid five million to another Biden,” she stated.
Greene continued summarizing the alleged illegal activities, explaining that hiring Hunter Biden to solve Burisma’s legal problems was “definitely illegal for a vice president of the United States and their family members.” She added that the owner of Burisma was not pleased when Trump won the presidency, as he had invested a lot of money into the Bidens to “make his problems go away.”
Greene vowed to continue with the investigation and called on the FBI to continue cooperating. She expressed her disappointment with the FBI’s decision not to provide the American public access to the unclassified information she had reviewed, saying, “I think the American people deserve to see it and know every single bit of it…”
“We’re going to continue to look into every single thing that we can uncover. We need the FBI to keep cooperating with us. That’s extremely important. And I have very high expectations of Christopher Wray that he’ll do the right thing and continue showing us the information that we’re asking for,” said Greene.
