Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for the prosecution of President Joe Biden on Thursday in an exclusive interview given to the Daily Caller. Her statement comes in the wake of the FBI permitting her and her fellow House Oversight Committee members to peruse a document containing criminal accusations against Biden from an informant.
The document, an FBI-produced FD-1023, allegedly reveals Biden’s involvement in a quid-pro-quo arrangement during his tenure as Vice President, as claimed by Republican Representative James Comer of Kentucky.
In her conversation with the Daily Caller, Greene provided insights into the document, which she and other members studied at a highly secure facility known as the sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF). However, they were not permitted to reproduce the document or take notes.
The Daily Caller wrote:
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, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene first outlined the allegations of the bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, calling the activities “definitely illegal.” The Congresswoman stated that the disclosure stemmed from the document she reviewed, which had been provided by the 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 is one of the largest private natural gas producers in Ukraine. The company became internationally known following the appointment of Hunter Biden to its board of directors in 2014.
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 made to get Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Burisma, fired. She further claimed that bribery is common practice in Ukraine and Russia, often budgeted for in business dealings.
“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.
MTG continued to outline 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 promised to continue the investigation and urged the FBI to cooperate fully, expressing her disappointment that the FBI did not believe the American public deserved access to the unclassified information she’d seen.
“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 MTG.
