Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) are set to introduce a resolution expunging Donald Trump’s impeachments, The National Pulse has learned. The move relies in part on conversations detailed by the now infamous FD-1023 form which detailed “conversations an FBI informant had about allegations that an executive at Ukrainian gas company Burisma offered bribes to then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.”
“President Trump was impeached over a perfect phone call asking questions about a Ukrainian prosecutor who was fired at the direction of [then-Vice President Joe Biden]. All while the FBI had information that Joe Biden and his son were paid $5 million to get [a Ukrainian] prosecutor fired in a political bribery pay-to-play scheme,” said Greene, referring to the first impeachment and FD-1023.
Stefanik, who chairs the House Republican Conference, backed a resolution to expunge Trump’s second impeachment, led by Rep. Markwayne Mullin in May 2022, when the Democrats still controlled the House. While his first impeachment concerned Ukraine, the second alleged he incited an insurrection on January 6th.
In January 2023, as the Republicans took control of the House, Speaker Kevin McCarthy said he would “look at” expunging the impeachments, but not as a priority. Both impeachments ended with Trump being acquitted by the U.S. Senate.
