Panicked White House slams Marjorie Taylor Greene after she vows not to vote for government funding until Biden is impeached

 September 2, 2023

On Thursday evening, the White House expressed strong disapproval of what it called the "hardcore fringe" of the Republican Party following Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (GA-14) declaration that she would withhold her support for government funding unless an impeachment investigation into President Joe Biden commenced, as the Daily Mail reported.

As the deadline for government funding looms closer, with current provisions set to expire on Sept. 30, the potential for a shutdown is imminent.

If not resolved, this could result in federal employees going on leave and various agencies temporarily shutting down.

White House Speaks on Shutdown Consequences

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates commented on the situation, emphasizing the negative implications of a government shutdown.

He said, "The last thing the American people deserve is for extreme House members to trigger a government shutdown that hurts our economy, undermines our disaster preparedness, and forces our troops to work without guaranteed pay."

Bates remarked that House Republicans, who are accountable for ensuring the government remains operational, had previously committed to the American people regarding government funding.

The spokesperson expressed disappointment at the possibility of lawmakers going back on their commitment due to pressures from extreme factions within their party.

Bates emphasized that it's essential to prioritize critical American concerns such as combatting fentanyl trafficking, safeguarding national security, and supporting FEMA, rather than focusing on a potentially unfounded impeachment attempt.

Greene and Other Republicans' Stance

Greene, known for her bold statements, declared on X (previously known as Twitter) her conditions for voting in favor of funding the government.

Beyond the impeachment inquiry, she voiced her disapproval of funding for the ongoing situation in Ukraine and criticized the perceived "weaponization'" of the government.

Rep. Greene is not the sole voice furthering this argument. Earlier in the week, Rep. James Comer (KY-01), who is spearheading GOP inquiries into the Biden family's financial activities, hinted that the initiation of an impeachment inquiry was on the horizon.

Comer is keen on obtaining emails, reportedly written under an alias by then-Vice President Joe Biden, which may shed light on the Biden family's financial pursuits.

"Joe Biden's role in this family influence peddling scheme continues to grow on a daily basis. I mean, he was front and center in this," Comer shared during a conversation with Fox News.

However, the White House firmly denies any involvement of President Biden in Hunter's business and rebuffed Comer's recent claims as false.

That seems to stand in contrast to recent discoveries suggesting that Biden might have used an alias in approximately 5,400 emails and other electronic documents during his tenure as vice president, revelations that have provided Republicans with an additional avenue for investigation.

Government Funding Deadline Approaches

With the countdown to the funding deadline now underway, the White House is exploring temporary solutions to maintain operations.

A representative from the Office of Management and Budget has already indicated the possible necessity of a short-term resolution to cover funding needs for the upcoming month.
