Far right-wing Rep. Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) plans to file articles of impeachment on Joe Biden the day after the President-elect’s inauguration.

Greene, a public supporter of conspiracy theories such a Q-Anon, has been unwilling to say what specific charges she wants brought against the president-elect. Greene told Newsmax, “Joe Biden is on record, on the phone, saying that he will withhold a billion dollars of foreign aid if he didn’t get his way with these deals with his son.”

A USA Today factcheck of the then-vice president concluded, and transcripts verify, that foreign aid was leveraged “to oust its top prosecutor as part of anti-corruption efforts endorsed by other international players that were unrelated to his son.”

Greene’s articles are unlikely to pass in the House, unlike the charges for inciting insurrection which have passed, impeaching President Donald Trump for the second time.

“I can’t imagine people in this country being so fearful of a future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did at the Capitol,” Greene said. “I do not condone that violence. The American people need hope, they need to know that there are Republicans in Congress that are willing to stand up and fight for them regardless of being a minority, regardless of having all odds against us, against me.”
