ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1862: U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issues the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, threatening to free all enslaved people in the rebel southern states if those states fail to re-join the Union by January 1, 1863.
Greene shared the news in a short video posted online Monday evening.
“I just introduced articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden. Joe Biden is selling our strategic petroleum reserves. This should never happen. He is draining our reserves and selling our oil, Americans’ oil, to foreign countries,” Greene says in the video.
“And China is the top buyer. China is our enemy. They are not our friend. They’re buying Americans’ oil. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is our emergency supply for if something goes wrong in this country,” Greene continues.
“It’s now down to 434 million barrels of oil. That is nearly half of what it was when President Trump left office,” she says.
“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 a national emergency crisis. And that’s exactly what President Joe Biden is doing. This is the number, H.R. 1362, to impeach Joe Biden.”
H.R. 1362 can be read in its entirety on Congress.gov.
“Impeaching Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States, for endangering, compromising, and undermining the energy security of the United States by selling oil from the United States’ Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign nations,” the resolution reads.
Biden began releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve last November to combat rising energy prices.
