Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is continuing, characteristically, to back former President Donald Trump as he faces what are now four criminal cases across multiple jurisdictions — including, most recently, Georgia.
On Thursday, Greene posted an image of herself that had been doctored to look like a mugshot of the sort to which Trump’s allies had been subjected in Georgia as those of them also charged in the case there surrendered for processing this week. Most were quickly released, with bond agreements in place. “I stand with President Trump against the commie DA Fani Willis who is nothing more than a political hitman tasked with taking out Biden’s top political opponent,” Greene said alongside the image.
There is no substantial evidence tying the actions undertaken by local District Attorney Fani Willis to anyone in the Biden admin or elsewhere who’d be in a position to task her with carrying something out that would purportedly be politically favorable to the incumbent president.
Still, that lack of evidence didn’t stop Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) from preparing a demand to Willis for information on her investigation including possible connections to federal investigators. Jordan similarly demanded inside information from the Manhattan criminal investigation that culminated in Trump’s first charges, though that push didn’t really turn into much of anything. A House committee eventually heard testimony from Mark Pomerantz, a former team member for the local district attorney in Manhattan… and Pomerantz mostly just refused to answer the Republicans’ questions, instead invoking his Fifth Amendment rights.
