During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.’s Triggered podcast, Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene explained that at first, she had been unwilling to believe that the attack on the Capitol was not carried out by far-left Antifa protesters.
Now, Greene appears to have accepted that former President Donald Trump’s supporters were the ones responsible for the January 6th, 2021 attack on the Capitol and that the allegations about Antifa organizing the attack were an untrue conspiracy theory. Following the January 6th attack, many Republican figures tried to place the blame for the attacks on left-wing activists. According to their allegations, these activists had joined the crowd of protestors and had disguised themselves as MAGA supporters as they entered the Capitol.
During the podcast, Greene explained how she had been sworn into Congress only three days before the Capitol riot. This was why the events of January 6th had shocked her. She added that “I had no idea, I just couldn’t imagine.” She added that she had even been arguing with Florida GOP congresswoman Kat Cammack, telling her that these are not their “people” and that they were the same “rioters that we saw in 2020.” She added that she simply couldn’t believe what was happening. Cammack, on the other hand, had told her it was their people. She then recalled how Cammack had pointed out their “red hats” to which Greene had responded, “I don’t care.”
