MTG Makes Power Move to Help Trump

Published on

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is exhausted by the Biden administration’s efforts to indict and imprison former President Donald Trump, so she is doing her best to respond.

The Georgia Republican and Trump supporter has introduced legislation that would defund both the ongoing investigation of the former president by special counsel Jack Smith and any future investigations involving Trump.

“Today, I’d like to announce that I’m writing an appropriations rider to defund Jack Smith, special counsel, his office and the investigation,” Greene said Monday during a House floor speech. “This is a weaponized government attempt to take down the top political enemy and leading presidential candidate of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”

In November, Attorney General Merrick Garland tasked Smith with investigating how Trump managed the classified materials he took from the White House and moved to his Mar-a-Lago residence upon leaving office.

Greene argued that Smith’s investigation of Trump was motivated by political goals and that Democrats who were also involved in the removal of sensitive information are held to a different standard than Trump.

“We cannot allow the government to be weaponized for political purposes,” she noted in her speech. “I’d also like to ask all of my colleagues to join me in this effort. We have to use the power of appropriations to stop the weaponization of government, especially in light that we know that there are others who are guilty of true crimes.”

She continued by highlighting the disparity between how the FBI and Justice Department handled the Trump case versus the alleged investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s alleged misuse of classified information on a personal, unprotected home server.

“There should have been an investigation done into that,” she said.

Greene also mentioned confidential documents pertaining to President Joe Biden that were compiled during his tenure as vice president and subsequently discovered at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C.

At his residence in Delaware, additional documents were discovered. Despite the fact that special counsel Robert Hur is supposed to be investigating these instances, there has been no update on the investigation’s status.

“Don’t forget Joe Biden’s documents that are sitting in his garage next to his Corvette where the door opens and closes,” Greene said. “America sees this for exactly what it is, and we will not allow it to stand.”

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) voiced his support for the bill. “This is an Article I flex! I’m so here for it,” he noted on Twitter.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) stated on Sunday that the Republican majority should act in accordance with its constitutional duty to exercise oversight.

“Congress can and should hold the Biden DOJ accountable by defunding their efforts during the appropriations process, executing the Holman Rule to remove and defund corrupt officials, and conducting oversight on its baseless investigations,” Biggs said in a tweet.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stated over the weekend that the FBI should be “broken up” as it presently exists, its senior leadership should be removed, and it should be rebuilt as a less nefarious, politically charged organization.

“This is a remarkable country with extraordinary people who are being crippled by their very own government and crippled by an anti-American faction, largely in the universities, and to some extent in the news media and in the corporate CEOs and in the bureaucracy,” Gingrich said in an interview with Real America News.

“The fact is we need a bill to break up the Federal Bureau of Investigation and replace it with much more reasonable law enforcement systems and eliminate the entire senior leadership. I mean, it’s clearly a corrupted institution, deeply politicized on the left… and the evidence we have is just overwhelming,” he said.
