During an interview on Fox News this Sunday with host Maria Bartiromo, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) claimed after the third criminal case against former President Donald Trump recently emerged that Americans are living with a Communist regime in the Biden administration.

According to the basic definitions of the relevant concepts and systems in government, the Biden administration is not a Communist regime, though this isn’t the first occasion when Republicans in Greene’s ideological corner have raised the allegation otherwise. Just recently, Donald Trump Jr. compared the treatment that his father has faced to the treatment by the Russian government of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, though there remains no apparent evidence that, in procedural terms, Trump’s multiple criminal cases have been handled in any substantial fashion differently from the many other criminal charges that move through the grand jury system in the U.S., whether handled by a special counsel or an ordinary prosecutor.

“The more times they indict President Trump, the more people realize that the Biden administration is a Communist regime, and for the first time, Americans are actually seeing what Communism really looks like,” Greene claimed early Sunday on Fox, as spotlighted by journalist Aaron Rupar. “And we have to stand up to this. This is why Republicans in the House, when we come back in September, we have to vote for an impeachment inquiry, because it’s the right thing to do. Whether Joe Biden took five dollars to his name for corrupt business deals or whether he took $40 million, it does not matter.”

Trump’s most recent charges relate to his attempts after the last presidential election to remain in office despite his documented election loss to Joe Biden. He also still faces charges from the same prosecutorial source, Special Counsel Jack Smith, for his allegedly unlawful harboring of classified documents from his time in office. In the case related to the election, recent disputes have involved antagonistic comments the former president made online and where the proceedings will be held, with the Trump team pushing for a venue change. Currently, D.C. Judge Tanya Chutkan, who has handled cases related to individual participants in the actual Capitol violence, is presiding over the proceedings.
