Marjorie Taylor Greene Faces Arrest Calls Over 'Armed' Jan 6 Comments
Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been criticized for remarks she made at a GOP event saying the January 6 insurrection "would've been armed" if she organized it.
Greene was speaking as part of her headline appearance at the New York Young Republican Club's 110th Annual Gala on Saturday night.
While dismissing the allegations that she was involved in plotting the riot at the Capitol, along with top Donald Trump ally Steve Bannon, Greene said that there would have been weapons at any right-wing coup in the U.S.
"Then Jan. 6 happened. And, next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon," Greene said.
"And I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would've been armed.
Mark Meadows texted with 34 lawmakers about overturning the 2020 election, including a confused Rep. Ralph Norman
FORMER WHITE HOUSE Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was forced to hand over 2,319 text messages to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. The trove of text messages were obtained by Talking Points Memo, which on Monday reported on the extent to which Meadows was communicating with members of Congress about overturning the 2020 election.
While CNN previously reported that Meadows was kept informed of efforts to seize voting machines and other schemes to overturn President Biden’s win by Trump allies in contested states, the TPM report identifies a startling message from Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) to Meadows, sent on Jan. 17, 2021, just three days before Joe Biden was scheduled to take office.
In the text, Norman appears to propose that then-President Trump impose martial law — or, as Norman put it, “Marshall Law” — during his final hours of office to overturn the election in his favor.
