Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) immediately called for Attorney General Merrick Garland to be impeached for following the law and investigating Trump.
IMPEACH MERRICK GARLAND!

Due to the small Republican majority in the House, Merrick Garland is not going to be impeached, so Rep. Greene can forget that.
What exactly does Greene want Garland impeached for?
It seems that she wants him impeached for following the law.
Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel because that is what he is supposed to do if there is any potential for conflicts of interest. The special counsel isn’t an abuse of power, as Sen. Ted Cruz falsely claimed. The special counsel is used to conduct an independent outside investigation.
If the DOJ’s review of these matters concluded that Trump did nothing wrong, there would be no need for a special counsel.
The appointment of the special counsel is an indication that indictments are likely coming, and that is why Marjorie Taylor Greene blew a gasket and demanded that Garland be impeached.
The special counsel isn’t a delay. It is an acceleration toward justice, and that is why Trump allies like Marjorie Taylor Greene are trying to use impeachment to stop an accelerating investigation of Trump.
