Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of the Republican Party believes the administration of Democratic President Joe Biden was possibly involved in the alleged coup attempt in Russia.
Greene posted on Twitter in response to prior allegations that Wagner’s mercenary forces were their route to Moscow.
The commander of the Wagner Private Military Company, Evgene Prigozhin, never made it to Moscow.
Instead, he ordered his troops to retreat to their respective bases.
Prigozhin decided to resign after hours of negotiations with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
Greene, like many Americans, considers the entire situation to be extremely suspicious.
Greene wrote the following on Twitter:
“After our government has been funding a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine for over a year, I sure hope our government isn’t behind a coup attempt currently happening in Russia.
“Regime change in a nuclear-armed country may lead to terrible consequences the American people don’t want.”

According to a recent report, the U.S. administration was aware of a “coup” attempt against President Vladimir Putin weeks ago and had planned for Russia to enter a “civil war.”
The Washington Post reported on Saturday night that U.S. officials disclosed that evidence indicating Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner mercenary group, was preparing to launch an armed attack against the Russian defense establishment was gathered earlier this month.
According to the claim, the espionage services of the United States alerted the White House and other government branches immediately to ensure readiness.
