A video has been unearthed showing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) calling for the execution of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after accusing her of committing treason.
CNN reported this week that Greene “indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians in 2018 and 2019 before being elected to Congress.”
“In one post, from January 2019, Greene liked a comment that said ‘a bullet to the head would be quicker’ to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” wrote CNN’s Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski.
“Before she ran for Congress in 2020, Greene created a White House petition in January 2019 to impeach the House speaker for ‘crimes of treason,’ citing Pelosi’s support of so-called sanctuary policies that ‘are serving illegals and not United States citizens’ and because Pelosi did not support Trump’s border wall.”
In the video Greene recorded for her Facebook followers, she calls treason “a crime punishable by death,” and saying “Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason.”
Greene removed that video from Facebook after CNN’s report.
But copies have now surfaced on Twitter. It’s worse than words on a page can describe.
In it, Greene tells a small group of supporters the Speaker of the House is “a traitor to our country, she’s guilty of treason.”
“She took an oath to protect American citizens and uphold our laws,” Greene adds in the video. “And she gives aid and comfort to our enemies who illegally invade our land. That’s what treason is. And by our law representatives and senators can be kicked out and no longer serve in our government. And it’s, uh, it’s a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason.”
Copies of the video have been posted on Twitter.
