Before she was stripped of her committee duties on Thursday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stood on the floor of the house claiming that the conspiracy theories and violent rhetoric used against her were mistakes of the past.
"I never said anything during my campaign that I am being accused of today," said Greene. “I haven't said anything about this since I was elected to Congress. Those were words from the past. "
But during her Thursday night program, Rachel Maddow revealed a tweet Greene posted just four days ago in which the Congresswoman made the QAnon discussion point that anyone who opposes Donald Trump is a pedophile.
"That was four days ago. This is the QAnon stuff. This is since she was in Congress," Maddow said. "Since it was pending against her, she would lose all of her committee duties."

"I never, not during my campaign, not since I was in Congress." Here she is online four days ago and says anyone who opposes Donald Trump is a pedophile. The list of anti-Trump pedos. That was four days ago. This is the QAnon stuff. That's since she was in Congress. Since it was pending against her, she would lose all of her committee duties. But she is fluent in this stuff. In doing so, she became so prominent in Republican circles in Georgia that she won a seat in Congress.
Marjorie Taylor Green has nothing to do with being in Congress
A hollow, dishonest speech made by Marjorie Taylor Greene to please her GOP colleagues and keep her committee posts doesn't change anything.
She has repeatedly advocated conspiracy theories and political violence, including death threats against Nancy Pelosi. For four days now, Greene has continued to sell QAnon nonsense from their online platforms.
Marjorie Taylor Greene has nothing to do with the United States Congress – – now or ever.
