Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said on Friday, Feb. 5, that not being on the Education and Labor and Budget committees will give her time to spend building support from people who want to “put America first.”
“I’m fine with being kicked off my committees because it would have been a waste of my time,” Greene said during a press conference on Capitol Hill.
“I’m a very hard worker, and I’m proud of it. So now I have a lot of free time on my hands, which means I can talk to a whole lot more people all over this country. I can talk to more people and make connections and build a huge amount of support that I’ve already got started from people that want to put America first,” she added.
On Thursday, the House voted to remove Greene from House committees over comments she made on social media supporting the QAnon movement in 2018.
Greene said she was grateful for the Democratic “morons” and 11 Republicans who voted to unseat her.
“I woke up early this morning literally laughing, thinking about what a bunch of morons the Democrats (+11) are for giving someone like me free time,” Greene tweeted. “In this Democrat tyrannical government, Conservative Republicans have no say on committees anyway. Oh! this is going to be fun!”
In another tweet shortly after the vote, she wrote, “Thank you to the real Republicans who stood with me today! Every single one of you will be remembered.”
Last month, Greene announced that she had filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.
“I’ve just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden. We will see how this goes,” Greene said.
Greene accused Biden of “enabling bribery” and “blatant nepotism” by utilizing his son Hunter’s position on the board of Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, while he was vice president.
“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing,” she wrote in a statement. “President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.”
Biden has repeatedly denied involvement in his son’s foreign business dealings.
On Saturday, Greene took to Twitter to post a video in which Biden was heard bragging about using his influence to get the former Prosecutor of Ukraine Viktor Shokin investigating Bursima Holdings ousted. Biden threatened to call back a $1 billion loan from the U.S. government to Ukraine if Shokin didn’t get fired.
“Joe Biden confessed to his abuse of power on tape! He must be impeached,” Green wrote.
