Greene suspended from Twitter as Dems move to kick her out of Congress


Marjorie Taylor Greene suspended from Twitter for rules violations as Democrats formally introduce resolution to kick her out of Congress

  • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was suspended from Twitter her office said Friday, with the lawmaker prohibited from posting tweets for 12 hours 
  • The ban came the same day Democrats introduced a resolution on the House floor to expel the Georgia Republican from Congress 
  • The resolution was spearheaded by California Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez, who brought on 72 Democratic co-sponsors 
  • Forbes first reported on Gomez’s plans to introduce the resolution Friday, which wasn’t tied specifically to anything Greene did this week 
  • Instead Gomez was trying to attract some Republican support for expelling Greene, after 11 GOP lawmakers voted to strip her committee assignments 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was suspended from Twitter her office said Friday – the same day Democrats introduced a resolution on the floor to expel her from Congress. 

Greene was prohibited from posting tweets for 12 hours for violating Twitter rules, the Georgia Republican said on Telegram, according to CNN

Meanwhile, California Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez went on the House floor to press for Greene’s removal saying she ‘advocated against our peers, the speaker and our government.’  

‘I take no joy in introducing this resolution, but any member who cites political violence and threatens our lives must be expelled,’ Gomez said. ‘I believe some of my Republican colleagues, and one in parrticular, wish harm upon this legislative body.’ 

‘I’m not saying this for shock value,’ he added.

On Thursday, Forbes first reported that 72 Democrats had signed on to Gomez’s resolution, including prominent Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Eric Swalwell, Ilhan Omar and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.   

A resolution was  introduced Friday to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from the House of Representatives for statements she’s made backing conspiracy theories and indicating Democratic members should be executed 

On Thursday, Greene sent out tweets about the Democrats' move calling it a 'war' on Republican women and using it to raise funds for her re-election. On Friday, Twitter suspended her access to her account for 12 hours for violating rules, but didn't cite a specific tweet

THE CLAIMS TAYLOR GREENE HAS NOT PUBLICLY RENOUNCED

  • The California Camp Fire which killed at least 85 was caused by a space laser linked to the Rothschilds and the state’s high-speed rail. PG&E admitted it was caused by a faulty power line and went into bankruptcy to fund a $13.5bn settlement and pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
  • Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin cut off a child’s face while she was alive, Clinton wore it as a mask so the terrified child would produce ‘adrenachrome’ and then organized the killing of a cop who knew about it.
  • The Las Vegas massacre was organized by Democrats to help them ban guns and shooter Stephen Paddock was not a lone wolf.
  • I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control.’
  • Seth Rich leaked Hillary Clinton’s emails and was murdered in revenge by her aide John Podesta because the emails revealed that a D.C. pizza restaurant had a child-smuggling operation in its basement. It does not even have a basement.
  • The world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles and the Q in QAnon exists and is the ‘best chance to take them out.’
  • Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett are Muslims. 
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg was replaced by a body double. 
  • The Clintons has JFK Jr. killed by organizing his plane crash. 
  • She wasn’t the person who posted a call to assassinate Nancy Pelosi to her own Facebook page. 

 

‘There is nothing more threatening to Democrats than strong Republican Women!!!’ Greene tweeted Thursday, sharing a tweet about the move. ‘House Democrats have declared war on House Republican Women!’ 

In another tweet, which linked to the Georgia Republican’s donation page, Greene said: ‘In Nancy Pelosi’s America, I’ve been expelled from Congress!’ 

‘And that’s exactly what the Democrats are introducing TOMORROW: a Resolution to expel & remove me from office for the mere crime of standing with the People, not the politicians!’ she said. 

The timing isn’t connected to anything Greene did this week, rather Gomez’s office had ‘quite a few’ conversations with House Republicans about supporting the resolution and wanted to wait for those decisions to be made, Forbes said.  

Gomez’s spokesperson Eric Harris told the publication that there was ‘interest’ among GOP lawmakers, but ‘concerns regarding threats of violence and political retribution’ prevented any from signing on. 

During the vote last month to strip Greene of her committee assignments, just 11 House Republicans signed on. 

Gomez called for a ‘strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues,’ Forbes reported. 

Instead, she’s been embraced by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and former President Donald Trump, while Senate Minority Mitch McConnell – who broke with Trump after the January Georgia run-off losses – has condemned her. 

Gomez said he believed Greene should be expelled from Congress over some of the conspiracy theories she’s signed onto – including on the legitimacy of school shootings and the Sept. 11 terror attacks – as well as social media posts that indicated she wanted top Democrats executed. 

Greene also took heat this week for voting against a resolution that gave Congressional Gold Medals to the U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcment that protected the Capitol during the January 6 insurrection. 

The resolution gave one medal to the Capitol Police, another to D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department and another to the Smithsonian to be displayed with a plaque listing all the law enforcement agencies that were involved.  

Instead of voting in the affirmative, Greene signed on as a co-sponsor to a separate resolution, sponsored by Rep. Louie Gohmert, that made no mention of the attack on the Capitol, though listed the three names of the of Capitol Police officers who died.
