During recent debate in the House over a proposal censuring Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) criticized Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for her past behavior during a “State of the Union” address by President Joe Biden to Congress.

“Mr. Speaker, it is really rich to get a lecture from someone about civility who stood on this House floor and screamed and interrupted the President of the United States during his state of the Union, or somebody who continues to circle the wagons and cheer on the insurrectionists who attacked this Capitol violently on January 6,” McGovern said in the House. “I was the last person off the House floor on that day, and I saw what happened. Then for people to come down here and defend those actions, it is pathetic and disgusting.”

Greene has consistently defended the cause of participants in January 6, whether characterizing defendants whose criminal cases originate with this day as political prisoners or questioning the basic legitimacy of the factual record of what happened. She has espoused the conspiracy theory, which has no real-world evidence behind it, that forces other than actual Trump supporters organized and/or propelled the violence.

“Every member of the Jan 6th committee, Nancy Pelosi, FBI, DOJ, DC Police, Cap Police, Jan 6 witnesses who lied, all need to be subpoenaed. Criminal referrals must be written and prosecutions MUST happen under a Trump DOJ. I’ve said it all along, MAGA did not do this,” Greene recently said on X, formerly called Twitter. A convicted participant in the attack and former local police chief in California who pushed similar conspiracy theories, suggesting that thousands of secret government cooperators may have been around the Capitol complex, was recently sentenced to over a decade in prison. Federal officials have consistently and directly rebuffed the claims.
