Judiciary Dem Tells Marjorie Taylor Greene She’s Been ‘Rolled’ As Her Losses Grow

Moving past extensive delays and infighting, the U.S. House — currently controlled by a Republican majority — managed to pass foreign aid this weekend supporting Ukraine amid its ongoing war with Russia alongside other targets for the help around the world. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) quickly devolved into public outrage, continuing to beat the rhetorical drum of a motion to remove Speaker of the House Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) from his legislative leadership role.

“House Republicans and the American people would be stronger without his disloyalty and betrayal of his principles. Now it’s time for my colleagues to go home and hear from their constituents. We need a new Speaker of the House!” said a post on social media from Greene.

“LOL. You will never do anything about it. You’ve been rolled more times than a bowling ball. Slava Ukraini!” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), an outspoken member of the House Judiciary Committee, replied on the same platform (X, formerly called Twitter).

The Senate already passed a foreign aid package supporting Ukraine and others months earlier after the implosion of a negotiated proposal combining such aid with changes to border policy domestically. The assistance now passed by the House also stands to uplift Taiwan, Israel, and others.

Greene, meanwhile, faces a consistent drumbeat of accusations that she’s effectively peddling Russian propaganda in the United States. Some of the prominent Georgia Congresswoman’s claims against the backdrop of that country’s war against Ukraine have been just bizarre.

“This is a war on Christianity. The Ukrainian government is attacking Christians. The Ukrainian government is executing priests. Russia is not doing that. They’re not attacking Christianity. As a matter of fact, they seem to be protecting it,” she claimed in a discussion with Trump ally Steve Bannon. Any source for her claims about the Ukrainian government “attacking Christians” was unclear, although there is ample documentation putting Ukrainian religious personnel among those from the smaller, Eastern European country victimized by Putin’s aggression.
