Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced on Monday that she formally filed Artiles of Impeachment against President Joe Biden, for “selling the American people’s oil to our enemies,” predicting that the sale will “create a national security crisis.”
Over 5 million barrels of oil, that were set aside as part of a U.S. emergency oil reserves release aimed at lowering prices, were exported to Europe and Asia, according to data and sources, despite gas prices across the U.S. reaching record highs, Reuters reported in July.
“Joe Biden is selling our strategic petroleum reserves. This should never happen,” Congresswoman Greene said in a video clip posted on her Twitter account. “He is draining our reserves and selling our oil, Americans’ oil to foreign countries, and China is a top buyer. China is an enemy. They are not our friend.”
Rep. Greene explained that the strategic petroleum reserve is meant to serve as an “emergency supply for if something goes wrong in this country” and reported that the reserves are “down to 434 million barrels of oil”.
“That is nearly half of what it was when President Trump left office. This is an outrage. This is completely wrong and no president of the United States should be doing this to the American people. It’s going to create an national emergency crisis, and that is exactly what President Joe Biden is doing,” she said.
