Marjorie Taylor Greene Under Fire for Uncovered Text Messages

Last week, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Green went on trial for connections to subversive efforts against the United States government. Specifically, she is under suspicion of either aiding the insurrectionists of the January 6th, 2021 riot and insurrection, or otherwise encouraging illegal means of keeping former President Donald Trump in power such as calling for martial law. Should Greene be found guilty of these charges, she would be barred from running for public office again.

Greene repeatedly testified under oath that she had no recollection of making any statements of this nature, but a recent cache of text messages uncovered by CNN have directly contradicted this statement.

“In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall law (sic). I don’t know on those things. I just wanted you to tell him. They stole this election. We all know. They will destroy our country next. Please tell him to declassify as much as possible so we can go after Biden and anyone else!” Greene texted then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on January 17, 2021.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene testified under oath that she could not remember telling Trump or his chief of staff to declare martial law to try to keep Trump in power, but her own texts reveal that she did exactly that,” Ron Fein, legal director of Free Speech For People, the organization challenging Greene’s candidacy in Georgia, said in a statement.

“Anyone who ‘can’t remember’ whether they urged the White House Chief of Staff to talk to the President of the United States about declaring martial law can’t be trusted when they claim they ‘can’t remember’ their own engagement in insurrection,” he added.
