Even though the next Congress hasn’t even been seated (and won’t be until January 3 of 2023), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) seemed to announce Wednesday that she has appointed herself to the House Oversight Committee.
Speaking with right-wing activist Charlie Kirk, Greene was asked how she could be certain that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will agree to a extreme conservative agenda if he becomes Speaker of the House, including subpoenas for Dr. Anthony Fauci and others close to President Joe Biden.
Greene insisted that McCarthy will be true to his word:
She then added:
You may recall that Greene was stripped of all her committee assignments in 2021 after she spread bizarre conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic comments about “space lasers” controlled by Jews that were causing wildfires in California.
Just last month, Greene made it clear that she expects McCarthy to kowtow to her every whim if she agrees to support him as Speaker, commenting:
“I think that to be the best Speaker of the House and to please the base, he’s going to give me a lot of power and a lot of leeway. And if he doesn’t, they’re going to be very unhappy about it. I think that’s the best way to read that. And that’s not in any way a threat at all. I just think that’s reality.”
Greene also let it be known what committees she most coveted being a member of:
Greene doesn’t have a law degree and has never practiced law, yet she wants to be on the Judiciary Committee.
Then again, Greene also has a non-functioning brain and yet she’s allowed to serve in Congress rather than being booted from the House and sent back home to North Georgia where she can sleep with as many redneck pieces of trash that are desperate enough to have her.
