Reps. Greene, Stefanik Move to Expunge Trump Impeachments from Congressional Record

Congresswomen Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) have both introduced separate resolutions to expunge the two impeachments of President Donald Trump.

As reported by Just The News, Greene’s resolution focuses on expunging the first impeachment, which occurred in late 2019 and early 2020 after President Trump called on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate corruption in his own country, stemming from the Biden family’s involvement with the energy company Burisma Holdings.

Stefanik’s resolution, meanwhile, targets the second impeachment, brought against Trump after he had already left office, which asserted without evidence that he had “incited an insurrection” over the peaceful protests that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021.

The resolution introduced by Greene focuses on the new revelations regarding an official FD-1023 form, an FBI informant document alleging that both Joe Biden and his son Hunter did indeed receive bribes of $5 million each from the founder of Burisma, in exchange for the promise of changing American foreign policy towards Ukraine. The bribe specifically demanded that Biden exert his influence to have Ukraine’s then-Prosecutor General, Viktor Shokin, fired from his position after he announced an investigation into Burisma for corruption. Shokin was ultimately fired by then-President Petro Poroshenko after Biden threatened to withhold up to $1 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine.

“Resolved, That the December 18, 2019, impeachment of President Donald John Trump is expunged, as if such Articles had never passed the full House of Representatives, as the facts and circumstances upon which such Articles were based did not meet the burden of proving the commission of ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors’, as set forth in section 4 of article II of the Constitution,” Greene’s resolution reads. Greene released her own statement affirming that the FBI informant’s revelations “vindicated President Trump and exposed the crimes of the Biden family.”

The resolution introduced by Stefanik focuses on the claims against President Trump regarding January 6th, which were dubious from the start since he said in his speech on that day that he wanted his supporters to “march over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” thus proving he never intended for any violence to happen. Recent evidence that has since emerged surrounding the events of that day further disprove the narratives of the gathered Trump supporters being violent; one such example being Jacob Chansley, known as the “QAnon Shaman,” where previously-unseen surveillance video showed him being peacefully escorted throughout the Capitol by police officers the entire time.

“Resolved, That the January 13, 2021, impeachment of President Donald John Trump is expunged, as if such Article had never passed the full House of Representatives, as the facts and circumstances upon which such Article was based met the burden of proving neither that President Trump committed ‘high Crimes and Misdemeanors’, as set forth in section 4 of article II of the Constitution, nor that President Trump engaged in ‘insurrection or rebellion against the United States’, such that he is forever precluded from ‘hold[ing] any office… under the United States’ pursuant to section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution,” Stefanik’s resolution reads.

President Trump is the only federal official in American history to have been impeached twice; he was ultimately acquitted both times, and both impeachments have widely been regarded as politically-motivated rather than based on actual crimes or wrongdoings. The second impeachment sought to bar him from ever running for office again; since it failed to convict him, he is eligible to become President of the United States again in 2024.
