Raskin on Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘invasion’ rhetoric: ‘We had an invasion of our chamber that she cheerleaded’

During a debate on the House floor over a bill to send additional weapon to Ukraine to assist in its fight against Russia’s invasion, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) slammed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for comparing NATO soldiers to Nazis.

“She talks about NATO Nazis. Does the minority believe that our allies in NATO, who are trying to defend the people of Ukraine are Nazis? Has it come to this?” Raskin said on Thursday.

“She said the aid that the taxpayers of America are sending to the people of Ukraine to defend themselves against Vladimir Putin and the Russian army falls into the hands of Nazis. I want to see her proof. Where’s her evidence?” he asked.

On March 16, Greene wrote: “Last week, Congress voted to fund Ukraine with $13.6 BILLION in lethal aid. How much U.S. taxpayer cash will end up in the hands of the neo-Nazis in Ukraine?”

“And to top it all off, NATO has been supplying the neo-Nazis in Ukraine with powerful weapons and extensive training on how to use them. What the hell is going with these #NATONazis?” she added.

Raskin also slammed Greene for using a debate regarding the invasion of Ukraine to talk about the “invasion” at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Instead, she talks about a massive invasion at the border, a massive invasion which their own speakers said today hundreds of thousands of people have been apprehended in,” Raskin said, adding that she “talked about a ‘massive invasion’ — we had a massive invasion of our own chamber and she continued to be a cheerleader for the insurrection.”
