Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia on Monday attempted to get skittish Republicans to go along with a house probe of President Joe Biden’s potential crimes, reminding her colleagues that a vote for an impeachment inquiry was not actually voting to impeach.
Appearing on One America News Network’s “Real America,” the Georgia Republican said she hopes the House would move forward on the issue this week.
She also suggested that after watching a recent clip of Biden aired by host Dan Ball, Congress should consider invoking the 25th Amendment as well as an impeachment investigation.
The 25th Amendment, which many Democrats called for using on former President Donald Trump, allows Congress to take action to remove the president if he is unable to perform his duties.

As for impeachment, Greene told Ball, “But I really hope we do have the votes, Dan. We should have the votes.”
“An impeachment inquiry is so much different than actually voting for impeachment,” she added.
“It’s just simply asking the question: Can we take a peek? Can we look further? Can we open an investigation into Joe Biden?”
“And what I hope to see,” Greene added, “is a ‘yes’ from every single Republican in our conference because that is such an easy vote to cast — a simple yes vote for an impeachment inquiry.”
Greene reiterated her point on X (formerly Twitter), posting on Monday, the vote is “asking if we can look further into Joe Biden and every person who helped cover up the Biden family’s crimes for years. Every Republican should support an Impeachment Inquiry.”
Greene has filed multiple resolutions calling for Biden’s impeachment.
Led by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, GOP lawmakers have uncovered what they believe is significant evidence of Biden’s influence peddling and corrupt practices on behalf of his son, Hunter, while serving ass vice president.
But the vote may not be as simple as Greene wants it to be.
As the Tampa Free Press has reported, two Republicans — Reps. Ken Buck of Colorado and Nancy Mace of South Carolina — have questioned pursuing impeachment actions against Biden.
