(trendingpoliticsnews) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced articles of impeachment Tuesday against Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray, the lawmaker announced.
Sharing the news to Twitter, Greene explained why she made the move.
“Under his watch, the FBI has intimidated, harassed, & entrapped Americans who have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime,” Greene wrote.
“Wray has turned the FBI into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland’s personal police force. Christopher Wray needs to be impeached.”
In a statement, the Republican firebrand’s office went into further detail regarding Greene’s decision, which comes during a firestorm for the bureau.
Referencing recent whistleblower testimony, the office’s statement slammed the director for using ‘Soviet-style’ tactics in its efforts to shield the Biden administration and target dissenting Americans.
“Under Wray’s watch, the FBI has intimidated, harassed, and entrapped American citizens that have been deemed enemies of the Biden regime. As such, Director Wray has turned the FBI into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland’s personal police force. The Soviet-style tactics used by the FBI against normal Americans are unprecedented in this country. FBI whistleblower Garret O’Boyle told congressional investigators that the FBI created a terrorist threat tag following the Dobbs Supreme Court decision in 2022. O’Boyle confirmed that the purpose of the tag was to target pro-life individuals. On September 23, 2022, armed FBI agents in tactical gear raided the family home of Mark Houck, a pro-life Catholic and father of 7 young children, because he obstructed access to an abortion clinic,” Greene’s office said in a statement, according to the Daily Caller.
The statement continued:
FBI whistleblower Kyle Seraphin obtained a leaked FBI document that targets Traditional Latin Mass Catholics. The document, titled “Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and their interests in ‘Radical-Traditionalist Catholics’ or RTCs,” was reported out of the Richmond Field Office and dated for January 23, 2023. This leaked document outlined a plan for the FBI to spy on Catholics, particularly Latin Mass-attending Catholics, who, according to the document, have harbored “white supremacy.” The FBI document indicated intentions to have informants within the Catholic Church, on advice from the Southern Poverty Law Center In October 2020, a group of men allegedly attempted to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Several of the men were acquitted in their cases, as the FBI was found to have entrapped them in the scheme. Most of the members involved with the plot were FBI informants.
The breaking news comes as the FBI is already dealing with numerous scandals in the fallout of the Durham Report, as well as a recent influx of damning whistleblower testimony.
