An impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden, the 46th president of the United States, has not been initiated.

Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene filed legislation to impeach Biden on January 21, 2021. The six articles [1] of impeachment were filed less than thirty hours into Biden's term. Greene alleged that Joe Biden "will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family's pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies."[2] The articles additionally state that Biden abused his power during his tenure of Vice President of the United States by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash foreign powers such as Russia and China.[3]

Biden has denied being involved in U.S. foreign policy related to his son's work. A Senate Republican investigation in 2020 found no evidence of wrongdoing, hearing "witness testimony that rebutted those charges".[4][2]

Articles of impeachment[edit]

  1. The first article alleges that Joe Biden "abused the power of the Office of the Vice President," either directly engaging in or allowing for bribery and other crimes. This was allegedly done by allowing his son Hunter Biden to influence the Ukraine's, a foreign nation's, policies and in the process accept financial and other benefits from foreign nationals.
  2. The second article alleges that the evidence against Biden and his family's involvement in the scandal is clear and compelling.
  3. The third article alleges that since Biden was overseeing anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine during his vice presidency, then any illegal activity by his son involving Ukraine would be a violation of his job as vice president. It also argues that there is clear evidence of a coverup.
  4. The fourth article alleges that since Viktor Shokin had an active ongoing investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden continued to serve on Burisma's board of directors, Vice President Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine's leaders did not dismiss Shokin.
  5. The fifth article alleges that Hunter Biden's foreign business relationships, and the millions of dollars generated thereof, were related to access to Joe Biden as vice president. The articles argue that these relationships and transactions present "serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns".
  6. The sixth article alleges that Biden endangered national security, allowing his son to influence foreign policy through nepotism. The article alleges that Biden permitted his son to collude with the Chinese government and to take money from Russian oligarchs.[5]
