While the even itself may be nearly two years in the past at this point, our nation is still very much feeling the repercussions from January 6th’s attempted insurrection at the US Capitol.
In fact, the unprecedented siege of Congress has become a hot-button political issue here in the United States, with some on the fringes of the Republican Party still defending those actions as a necessary revolt against the alleged corruption of the federal government.
Now it appears as though at least one Congresswoman is furthering that thinking with her wildest comments yet about that fateful day.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) claimed that if the events of January 6th had happened her way, “we would have won.”
Greene spoke at the New York Young Republican Club in New York City on Saturday evening, where her speech largely consisted of blasting the Biden administration, calling the government “corrupt,” and re-affirming her opposition to supporting Ukraine’s defense against Russia. Her remarks eventually arrived at the subject of January 6th, where she scoffed at the past accusations that she gave Capitol tours to Donald Trump’s supporters before they wound up laying siege to the building.
So, what exactly did she say?
“Then Jan. 6 happened. And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon,” Greene said. “I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.”
Greene has consistently been one of the more radical Republicans in Congress, and it doesn’t appear as though that’s going to change anytime soon.
