WASHINGTON, D.C.  — Only hours after President Donald Trump was impeached Wednesday for a second time, a congresswoman from Georgia is looking to impeach his eventual successor for "abuse of power."

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) says she wants impeach President-elect Joe Biden because of his alleged family's business connections with China and the Ukraine.

Greene made her intentions public on the conservative news channel Newsmax and later stated her intentions in a tweet.

“We have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments … Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” she said on Newsmax. “So on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden.”

Greene says she'll begin her work to impeach Biden a day after the new president is inaugurated next week.

"On January 21st, I'm filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden," Greene tweeted.

Greene added, "I'm proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored."

During Wednesday's impeachment of Trump in the House chambers. Greene was a vocal critic.

"Democrats' impeachment of President Trump today has now set the standard that they should be removed for their support of violence against the American people," she said.
