Voters claim Rep. Greene gave 'dubious' court testimony

27 Apr 2022

U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been accused of presenting "dubious" testimony in court by a group seeking to remove her from the ballot.

Greene's character has been called into question by the Georgians who filed a court document Wednesday claiming that a text message revealed by CNN two days earlier puts doubt on the first-term Republican congresswoman's credibility.

In a phone discussion with Greene's lawyer, James Bopp, he stated that the court document dishonestly distorts a 15-month-old text exchange.

When Donald Trump was nearing the end of his administration, on January 17, 2021, Greene sent a text message to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows informing him that certain Republican members of Congress had informally urged Trump to invoke martial law to maintain control.

They claim that this text discredits Greene's testimony that she could not recall ever advocating for martial law as a way for Trump to remain in the office during a court hearing on Friday.

"Greene's testimony at the hearing that she could not remember discussing martial law with anyone was already dubious," the court filing said. "This text with President Trump's Chief of Staff makes her testimony even more incredible because it seems like the kind of message with the kind of reception that a reasonable person testifying truthfully would remember."

Her attorney Bopp argued that Greene was not calling for martial law but rather informed Meadows of the conversations she and her coworkers were having.

When asked about the text, he replied it was 

"The text itself is very innocuous and inconsequential,"

It is expected that an administrative judge will rule on Greene's eligibility for the ballot early next month.

Voters claim that Greene violated the Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause of the U.S. Constitution by supporting the incendiary demonstration that preceded last year's attack on the U.S. Capitol in a new legal challenge.

She has argued that disqualifying Greene would violate her constitutional rights and be unjust to the public.
