Hump day just got a little bit brighter over here as we learn that someone in the inner circle of Trump bootlicker and QAnon apologist Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is likely to be subpoenaed. Greene was on the attack Wednesday morning, publicly posting an email sent by Sean Tonolli, a senior investigator on the House committee probing the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Greene not-so-subtly attempted to turn the blame from her unnamed associate to Democrats, who she claims “supported, cheered, & funded violent anti-government riots”—aka Black Lives Matter—without whatever consequence she seems to believe should accompany believing Black lives actually matter. Meanwhile, she complains, the “witchhunt” committee investigates “innocent people that had nothing to do with a random 3 hour riot.”
Greene added that the email was “being sent to some of President Trump’s strongest supporters.” And? Is that supposed to mean something? Of course the email is going to Trump supporters. Who else would storm the U.S. Capitol and attempt a coup after their cult leader lost an election? That’s who should be getting subpoenaed, hopefully, as well as everyone else involved behind the scenes.
Greene ends her Twitter rant by implying she will not comply with the subpoena. “We won’t be playing your stupid games anymore,” she writes.
Greene has already been ousted from two congressional committees for acting like a fool in the halls of Congress and fined for her refusal to comply with mask mandates while on the House floor.
“You would think that the Republican leadership in the Congress would have some sense of responsibility to this institution,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said at a news conference on Feb. 4 after Greene was banished from her previously held committee seats. “For some reason, they’ve chosen not to go down that path.”
Even some of Greene’s constituents are beginning to question her.
“It’s embarrassing,” Ashley Shelton, a stay-at-home mother who voted for Greene, told The New York Times. “I think she’s kind of a loose cannon,” Shelton said. “The more she opens her mouth, the less evidence of her wisdom.”
