    Taylor Greene Announces Legislation to Defund Special Counsel In Trump Indictment

    Published on

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, disgusted by the Biden administration’s efforts to indict and imprison former President Donald Trump, is responding in the most effective manner possible.

    The Georgia Republican and Trump ally is proposing legislation that would defund the ongoing investigation of the former president by special counsel Jack Smith as well as future investigations into Trump.

    “Today, I’d like to announce that I’m writing an appropriations rider to defund Jack Smith, special counsel, his office and the investigation,” Greene said Monday during a House floor speech. “This is a weaponized government attempt to take down the top political enemy and leading presidential candidate of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”

    In November, Attorney General Merrick Garland tasked Smith with investigating how Trump handled classified documents that he had taken from the White House and moved to his Mar-a-Lago estate upon leaving office.

    Greene argued that Smith’s investigation into Trump is motivated by politics and that there is a double standard between Trump and Democrats who were similarly implicated in the theft of classified information.

    “We cannot allow the government to be weaponized for political purposes,” she noted in her speech. “I’d also like to ask all of my colleagues to join me in this effort. We have to use the power of appropriations to stop the weaponization of government, especially in light that we know that there are others who are guilty of true crimes.”

    She then compared the FBI and Justice Department’s management of Trump’s case to the alleged investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s alleged mishandling of classified emails on a private, unsecured server in her home.

    “There should have been an investigation done into that,” she said.

    In addition, Greene brought up classified documents associated with President Joe Biden that were withdrawn from the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C. during Biden’s tenure as vice president.

    Additional documents were discovered at his Delaware residence. Robert Hur is supposed to be investigating these incidents, but there has been no information on the investigation’s progress.

    “Don’t forget Joe Biden’s documents that are sitting in his garage next to his Corvette where the door opens and closes,” Greene said. “America sees this for exactly what it is, and we will not allow it to stand.”

    Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) expressed support for the measure.

    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) stated on Sunday that the Republican majority should fulfill its constitutional oversight responsibility.

    “Congress can and should hold the Biden DOJ accountable by defunding their efforts during the appropriations process, executing the Holman Rule to remove and defund corrupt officials, and conducting oversight on its baseless investigations,” Biggs said in a tweet.
