GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene got ridiculed online after publicly posting an email sent by an investigator with the House’s Jan. 6 committee indicating the panel’s intent to subpoena one of her associates.
The Georgia Republican claimed the email is “is being sent to some of President Trump’s strongest supporters” over a “random” riot.
“The Democrats supported, cheered, & funded violent anti-government riots all over America for a year killing people & causing billions in destruction to private businesses. Now the J6 witch-hunt is going after innocent people that had nothing to do with a random 3 hour riot,” Taylor Greene tweeted on Wednesday.
Greene redacted the date of the email and the contact information of the sender, Sean Tonolli, who described himself as a “senior investigative counsel” for the panel.
In the email, Tonolli indicated that the panel intends to issue a subpoena to the recipient of the email and asked to be connected to the person’s legal counsel.
Naturally, Twitter users had to respond. Check some of the reactions below.

Save your phone records. Destroying evidence is a crime. Remember that. 😬😬

America has a long history of riots over racial issues. We also have a long history of the peaceful transfer of power. J6 was the first time the latter was called into question.

If they're innocent people then they have nothing to worry about…

@mtgreenee innocent people usually honor and respect subpoenas and answer all questions truthfully. This also wasn’t a random 3 hour riot. Stop with the false equivalencies. Any riot that leads to destruction is bad. Stop cherry picking.

VERY backwards interpretation hun. Bless your heart.
J6 was far from random, there's video 9f you asking for it to happen, and THAT was the anti government riot. The other riots u speak of were about social justice. But you wouldn't know anything about that.

Rather strange that those you claim are innocent are all pleading guilty for their crimes. See what happens when you get slapped with a subpoena soon and just how bad you're going to lie under oath.

How can you call January 6th a random riot? Many of the j6 as you call them are claiming they did it because Trump asked. If you people have nothing to hide in your involvement you'd all testify.

Ahh. The narrative is changing. Now it's a riot.
All we need to do now is establish where they gathered and who sent them.
