Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene issued the following statement following today's politically motivated indictment of President Donald J. Trump by Special Counsel Jack Smith:
"Today, America finds itself in a troubling situation, resembling authoritarian regimes rather than the beacon of freedom and democracy our founders valiantly fought to establish.
Innocent individuals, including former President Donald J. Trump, are being unjustly targeted by a Department of Injustice and an FBI transformed into political hitmen, acting at the behest of the sitting president.
Special Counsel Jack Smith has abused his power, using his office to persecute President Trump, his aides, and ultimately, the American people. These actions are undoubtedly politically motivated, with clear intentions of interfering with the upcoming 2024 election.
This isn't just an indictment against President Trump, but against all his supporters and the fundamental rights of Americans. If an innocent former president can be targeted, then no American is truly safe. President Trump is just standing in the way.
That’s why I will use the Holman Rule to defund Jack Smith's special counsel, as these baseless investigations and persecutions must be put to an end. Furthermore, I have introduced articles to impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland, who has weaponized the Justice Department to support these politically motivated pursuits.
This is the line in the sand. This is nothing but a political assassination and I will not vote to fund a communist regime. I will not vote to fund a weaponized government while it politically persecutes not only President Trump but all conservative Americans. The Biden Department of Justice has gone rogue, and the FBI are their henchmen. Until we restore the FBI and the Department of Justice to the esteemed institutions they once were, I will not vote to fund these communist organizations that are doing the bidding of Joe Biden.
My support for President Trump is unwavering. We know that this is a phony and politically motivated witch hunt aimed at undermining the core values of our nation. The American people see through these actions, and together, we must stand with President Trump and against this abuse of power."
