To better understand Marjorie Taylor Greene, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
Marjorie Taylor Greene (born May 27, 1974) is an American far-right politician, businesswoman, and conspiracy theorist serving as a U.S. representative for Georgia’s 14th congressional district. A member of the Republican Party and a supporter of Donald Trump, Greene was elected to Congress in November 2020 and sworn into office on January 3, 2021.
Greene has supported disproven far-right conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate, QAnon, false flag shootings, and 9/11 conspiracy theories. Additionally, before running for Congress she had supported the execution of prominent Democratic politicians. She has also supported the efforts of former president Donald Trump to overturn his defeat against Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
During the Electoral College vote count, Greene was among a group of Republican legislators who unsuccessfully objected to votes won by Biden. After falsely asserting Trump was elected in a landslide but the election had been stolen from him, Greene filed articles of impeachment against Biden the day after his inauguration, alleging abuse of power. The House of Representatives voted to remove Greene from all committee roles in response to a series of past statements from Greene that were described as incendiary calls to violence against members of Congress. Eleven Republicans joined the unanimous Democrats in the vote on February 4, 2021.
