Whoever has the unenviable job of legally representing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is probably pulling out his or her hair right now thanks to something the congresswoman said today that clearly shows she knew the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol was an act of war.
Greene — along with fellow GOP simpleton Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX) showed up today at the office of Muriel Bowser, the Mayor of the District of Columbia, ostensibly to whine about some of the 1/6 defendants who are being held at jails in the District.
But it was what Greene said as part of her blatant publicity stunt that directly implicates her and others in what transpired on that fateful day of Jan. 6:
“You need to give us a visit. You owe this to all of the people that we represent across the country, and then this city needs cleaned up. There’s homeless people all over the city. Crime is out of control, and it has a jail that is clearly a dangerous place for people to be because they’re dying last week, and then these pre-trial January 6th defendants have been held for months on end being abused as political prisoners of war not only by federal judges, prosecutors, the Department of Justice but also by the DC jail.”
Being abused as political prisoners of war, are they? Then that means they took part in what they damn well knew was a militant act, which is just another way of saying a war.
Not only does the video of Greene talking about “war” implicate her in the actions of the insurrectionists, it also serves as evidence that can be used against the very people she says she cares so much about.
Of course, Greene doesn’t give a diddly damn about any of the saps who are now facing time in prison for the disgusting things they did on Jan. 6. She just wants a few minutes of publicity she can use to raise money and boost her bid for another term in Congress.
Oh, and as for that second term in office. There’s news to report on that front, too.
A group of voters has renewed their challenge to her appearing on the ballot, according to the Georgia Recorder:
Free Speech for People, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization representing the challengers, filed an appeal with the Fulton County Superior Court Monday, arguing that the court made several errors in the case.
Typically, when a candidate’s eligibility is challenged in Georgia, it is a question of whether the candidate meets the age or residency requirements to run, and the candidate must simply provide their birth certificate or proof of residency. Since Greene’s case is more complicated, the court ruled that the burden of proof should be on the challengers.
That was a mistake, the challengers argue, because evidence necessary to determine Greene’s eligibility was in her control, but the judge blocked their request for discovery.
Greene’s statement at the office of Mayor Bowser can also be used in the challenge to have her removed from the ballot, and that could prove to be big trouble for the congresswoman.
