Breaking Now: During a press conference that just concluded, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who was stripped last night of her committee assignments in the House of Representatives, spoke in defense of former President Donald Trump and said that the Republican Party is Trump’s party.
“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Friday that former President Donald Trump still rules the Republican Party and said the impeachment push against him is a “circus” that enriches the same media companies that have cashed in on “fake outrage” and deepened the nation’s political divisions,” according to The Washington Times.
“Speaking at a press conference on Capitol Hill, Ms. Green downplayed the vote this week to strip her of committee assignments, saying she plans on focusing her energy on pushing a conservative vision and ‘holding the Republican Party accountable and pushing them to the right.’
“‘I’m fine being kicked off of my committees because it would be a waste of my time,’ the Georgia Republican said. ‘I can talk to more people and make connections and build a huge amount of support … with people who want to put America first and don’t care about the party lines, and don’t care about any of the political identities involved.’…
“The 46-year-old married mother of three praised Mr. Trump, describing him as a fighter for the ‘forgotten man.’
“‘Republican voters support him still,’ she said. ‘The party is his. It doesn’t belong to anybody else.’” [emphasis added]
