January 6

Marjorie Taylor Greene: It’s ‘shocking’ that people would call me an ‘insurrectionist’

As Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene prepares to testify at a hearing to determine her eligibility to run for a second term this Friday, she appeared on Newsmax and took questions (albeit friendly ones) regarding those who say she played a role in the lead-up to the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, an event which some call an “insurrection.”

“Are you worried? And who the heck has the legal authority to label you, falsely, an ‘insurrectionist,” Newsmax host Greg Kelly asked Greene.

According to Greene, the insurrectionist label is “the most shocking part about it.”

“I’ve never been charged, I’ve never been convicted, I’ve never even been accused, I’ve never been questioned by the January 6 committee or anyone else about my actions and what role I played on January 6, because everyone knows the truth,” Greene said. “Everyone knows that as a member of Congress, I was involved in the electoral count as all of us were, and all I did was object to a few states for Joe Biden, objected to his electoral college vote.”

Five voters who live in Greene’s 14th Congressional District filed a challenge to her eligibility to serve another term, citing a provision in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that bars members of Congress from running for reelection if they take part in an insurrection or rebellion against the government.
