‘National Security Risk’ Greene Exposes Classified Info At Wednesday House Hearing: Video

Proving that she remains just as much of a national security risk as she was on January 6, 2021, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) blurted out classified information during a Wednesday hearing on the border.

The hearing, which was held in Texas so that Congressional Republicans could have a photo op and pretend to give a damn about anything but scoring political points, featured testimony from U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, who was asked by Greene about explosives found on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Chief Ortiz, are you aware that there was an explosive device found by Border Patrol agents on January 17th in an area called No Man’s Land, and there’s surveillance of who put it there? And guess what? It wasn’t Americans; it was cartels. Are you aware of that?”

Ortiz replied:

“I will tell you that some of this information that I receive, I receive in a confidential [sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF)], so I’m going to be a little hesitant of briefing what I know and what I don’t know with respect to some of those, an event like that.”

Undeterred by that warning, Greene bulldozed ahead like the loose cannon she always has and will be.

“I understand, Chief Ortiz, but I’m not going to be confidential because I think people deserve to know,” Greene huffed. “Our Border Patrol agents should not be in those type of conditions where they are at risk of being blown to pieces by the cartels, who, by the way, are criminals, and they should be treated as such.”

“As a matter of fact, I’ve co-sponsored legislation to declare war on the cartels because they are definitely declaring war on us, the American people, and our Border Patrol agents, and I’ve had enough of it, and I know Americans have had enough of it.”
