    Her Wikipedia page says it all:

    Marjorie Taylor Greene, also known by her initials MTG, is an American far-right politician, businesswoman, and conspiracy theorist[3]

    Throughout the Russo-Ukrainian War, Greene has promoted Russian propaganda, including claims that Ukraine is a Nazi state,[220] and praised Vladimir Putin.[221] During the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, she criticized the “corrupt” Ukrainian government and argued against sending Ukraine weapons.[222] She has suggested that Ukraine instigated the invasion by agitating Russia.[223] In 2024, Greene proposed an amendment to a House foreign aid bill on Ukraine that would require all members of the House voting in favor of the bill to enlist in the Ukrainian military.[224]

    The whole page is fucking crazy. She doesn’t even sound like a real person, but a caricature that someone created. Wtf.

    On her first day in office, Greene wore a face mask onto the House floor that read “Trump Won”, despite Trump having lost the 2020 U.S. presidential election to Joe Biden.

    Greene has promoted antisemitic, white supremacist, and far-right conspiracy theories, including the white genocide conspiracy theory,[6][7] QAnon, and Pizzagate

    she supported calls to execute prominent Democratic Party politicians, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

    As a congresswoman, she equated the Democratic Party with Nazis

    Greene aided and supported Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 U.S. presidential election

    In a series of tweets following the attack on the Capitol, Greene falsely suggested that the rioters were members of antifa dressed as Trump supporters.

    the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove her from all committee roles […] Eleven Republicans joined the unanimous Democrats in the vote

      I wish so much I could listen to her inner conversation. I want to know what is going on in a head that does this completely insane shit but is still functioning enough to not be institutionalized.

    Yet another confirmation of what we’ve known already for a long time, that the far-right and MAGA are pawns for the Russians…

    I mean christ almighty I don’t think there’s a single person alive who sucked Putin’s dick as hard as Trump did during his time as president, and he’s supposed to be the poster-child for the whole thing.

    Those words coming from a political wing known for screaming at minorities to learn to speak American should be another huge tell that her motivation is not as she presents it.

      We literally have never adequately punished traitors, which is why dimwits are still waving Confederate flags to this day.

        Yeah, nobody hanged for killing their fellow Americans for the right to own human beings. Like, that’s fucking insane. Motive obviously needs taken into account with crimes, and their motive just made their crimes worse.

    I’d love to see her try to point out Transcarpathia on a map, or Hungary, even. It’d be hilarious.

    I just had to post this in reply to a comment someone replied to me yesterday, because they were adamant Fashy Maggie was just a useful idiot and not a Russian agent.

    Turns out, the user is just a useful idiot running interference for Kremlin supported Republicans. I’m shocked.

      Where do you draw the line between the two though? When exactly does a useful idiot become a Russian agent?

        When they accept money for their service?

        If you are pushing Russias talking points and not getting paid for it then that is the definition of an idiot.

            We do not have access to her accounts, and we are not allowed to audit people’s transactions.

            IRS should be able to figure out whether she took money from the Russian.

            But to answer your question indirectly, I didn’t suggest that she was a Russian agent, I was just responding to the part about distinguishing between agents and idiots. I wouldn’t be shocked if she was doing it on the hope that they would pay her rather than actually being paid.

        Is there a line? That would be a question about what punishment to give, not about guilt.

      The FBI would be the one to investigates internal affairs, the NSA and CIA are supposed to be tasked for foreign investigations. The FBI at one point did an outstanding job of discovering corruption in our politicians at one point but they did such a good job congress made sure to neuter them so they could never do it again. It was called Operation Abscam if you want to look it up.

          I suppose it depends on what or whom is being investigated, but I imagine or at least hope they would cooperate and the FBI would investigate the individual and the NSA/CIA the foreign entity.

    American congressmen tripping about aid to Ukraine when the war with Russia is basically here. Prepare for more violence than you can imagine, that’s where they’re taking us.

    I was coming to the comments to read everyone tearing the libs apart for this rediculous unsubstantiated cope that smacks of the desperation of russiagate back in the day. I’ve been let down…
