On January 13, the US house of representatives gathered to debate the second impeachment of President Donald Trump. Republican representative from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, voted against the impeachment while wearing a mask that said “Censored”. Nonetheless, the House votes to impeach Trump by the vote of 232 against 197. The debate ended with Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing the charges and making Trump the only president in US history to be impeached twice.
Greene also shared a video on Twitter calling the impeachment “Democrat’s witch hunt” adding that she proudly voted NO.

In a tweet, Greene has now revealed that she plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on January 21, a day after he was sworn in as the President of the United States.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
It’s time to take a stand.

Who is Marjorie Taylor Greene?
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a politician, conspiracy theorist, and businesswoman who was elected to the US Congress in the November 2020 elections. She is a representative of the 14th congressional district of Georgia. Born in Milledgeville, Baldwin County, she pursued her education at South Forsyth High School which is located in Cumming, Georgia. Greene completed her graduation from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Business Administration, as reported by The Biographical Directory of USA.
She is one of the Republicans who objected to counting the electoral votes from Michigan. Greene has also time and again refused to wear masks on the house floor claiming “my body my choice”. She tweeted in November last year, “Masks, masks, masks…I proudly told my freshman class that masks are oppressive. In GA, we work out, shop, go to restaurants, go to work, and school without masks.”
Our first session of New Member Orientation covered COVID in Congress.
Masks, masks, masks….

My body, my choice.#FreeYourFace

Her Twitter bio says, “ Congresswoman for Georgia’s 14th CD, Christian, Wife, Mom, Small Business Owner, Proud American, 100% Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Trump #MAGA”
