Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter on Saturday and offered her thoughts on claims that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent.
“Republicans in Congress can investigate, but we can’t press charges. The key component is the Justice Department, but they are politically corrupt and only care about one party: the Democratic Party. We must disappoint the Justice Department!” the GOP lawmaker tweeted.
Greene, a Republican from Georgia, also made an appearance at Steve Bannon’s on Saturday war room on the conservative network Real America’s Voice, saying, “People are going to get slightly frustrated if they see a Republican majority in the next two years when we have no control in the White House and no control in the Senate. That’s why I go screaming this out loud every day. Elections have consequences, electoral interference has consequences and voter fraud has consequences.”
Greene continued, “The fact that the Republican Party hasn’t come together nationally in the most effective and aggressive way to stop all of the things that are happening is a shame and it’s a complete defection to the people who are.” vote for Republicans.”
Rumors of voter fraud are nothing new by some members of the Republican Party and last surfaced during this year’s midterm elections. Most notably, failed Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has questioned the integrity of her race after losing to her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs.
Lake, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, said on Twitter last month that “Arizonas have no faith and no faith in our elections. Our election officials are incompetent (… or worse). You have let us down.”
Trump has also expressed concern about potential voter fraud during the 2020 election as well as this year’s midterm elections. The ex-president wrote on Truth Social on Wednesday: “Our poor elections have taken a hit. America is no longer seen as the home of free and fair elections, but as a land of corrupt politics and politicians!”
Meanwhile, political analyst Craig Agranoff said news week on Saturday: “I think that’s wasted time as most Republicans would like to move on and look to the future. Several who doubt the election results have not been successful in their last few races.”
Toward the end of her interview with Bannon, Greene said, “What we need to do as majority Republicans is harness the power of the purse. We must use the rules and procedures that we have in our possession to fully disembowel the FBI and the Department of Justice because it is their job to prosecute.”
Greene’s comments follow Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s tweet on Friday, which said the social media platform will post “what really happened to the Hunter Biden [laptop] Story suppression by Twitter.”
Independent journalist Matt Taibbi published a series of internal conversations by Twitter employees discussing how they will prevent users from a New York Post Article ahead of the 2020 elections as violating the platform’s “distribution of hacked materials” policy.
Hunter Biden’s laptop has been at the center of speculation and controversy ever since post‘s story broke first. Emails allegedly written by President Joe Biden’s son appear to show terms of deals with Chinese and Ukrainian companies. One of the emails found in the laptop suggests Hunter arranged a meeting between his father and a top executive at Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, in 2015, when then-Vice President Biden was in charge of Ukraine-US policy.
The information for the post‘s story is said to have been provided by Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, who said he received it from a MacBook Pro owned by Hunter.
After initially dismissing the reports as potential misinformation and raising doubts about their authenticity, The Washington Post and The New York Times later found that thousands of emails forming the basis of the story actually came from a computer that Hunter reportedly dropped off at a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, in April 2019 but never picked up.
However, The Washington Post said in March that the emails offer “little new insight” into Hunter’s work for Burisma and that they do not implicate the president.
Additionally, Trump commented on Musk’s “Twitter files” on Truth Social on Saturday, saying, “So, with the exposure of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in close collaboration with Big Tech Companies, the DNC and the Democrat Party, are you doing this? Throw out the results of the 2020 Presidential Election and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A massive fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the repeal of all rules, regulations and articles, even those contained in the Constitution. Our great “Founders” would not and would not condone false and fraudulent elections!”
