In a series of tweets this Tuesday, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene worked to distance herself from the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, saying that if they were truly Trump supporters, they wouldn’t have obstructed Republicans who were opposing Joe Biden’s election victory.
“If the [January 6] organizers were Trump supporters, then why did they attack us while we were objecting to electoral college votes for Joe Biden?” she wrote. “The attack RUINED our objection that we spent weeks preparing for, which devastated our efforts on behalf of Trump and his voters.”
According to Greene, both Republicans and Democrats were targeted by the mob. “They were against the government ALL together.”
“I was in the Chamber when the attack occurred,” she continued. “I was very upset, scared, and terrified for ALL of us – every person from Capitol staff, press, police to every Member R and D. I even made a video telling people to stop and they should protest peacefully.”
Greene went on to absolve Donald Trump of all responsibility for his alleged role in inciting the violence, asserting that it was “NOT incited in the moment by President Trump, and NO Republican Member was involved.”
“We were ALL victims that day,” she added. “And once again, Trump is the victim of the never ending hate fueled witch hunt.”
The House has stripped Greene of several committees due to her past insurrectionist and conspiratorial rhetoric. Greene said she regrets many of her previous comments and social media activity but has yet to publicly apologize.
