Between the House of Representatives' inquiry into the January 6, 2021 insurrection and a Georgia voters' lawsuit to block Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from the 2022 midterm ballot, a number of revelations have emerged about GOP congressional involvement in the Capitol riot.

The storming of the Capitol building—by attendees of a rally lead by then President Donald Trump—left five people dead, over 100 law enforcement officers injured and millions of dollars in damage.

One of the latest revelations is drawing ire and ridicule mixed with laughter.

On January 17, 2021—two weeks after Greene took the congressional oath to uphold the Constitution, 11 days after the deadly insurrection and just three days before duly elected Democratic President Joe Biden would take his oath of office—Greene was still communicating with President Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about ways to derail democracy.

Georgia GOP Representative Greene wrote:

"In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall [sic] law."
"I don’t know on those things. I just wanted you to tell him."

Greene continued with Trump's repeatedly disproven, unsubstantiated Big Lie.

"They stole this election. We all know."

It is worth noting none of the parties making the stolen election claim have provided any proof, however several instances of voter fraud by Trump supporters have been uncovered.

Also worthy of note is Greene and many of the other Republicans who claim the 2020 election was fraudulent, were elected via the ballots and voting machines they discredit.

Despite their vehement insistence the 2020 election wasn't valid, no members of the GOP refused to take office in January 2021.

Greene continued:

"They will destroy our country next."

She then suggested:

"Please tell him to declassify as much as possible so we can go after Biden and anyone else!"

In testimony for the Georgia lawsuit that seeks to make Greene ineligible to run for reelection, the Republican Representative claimed to not recall having made such suggestions.

You can see her response here:

While many people focused on Greene's possible violation of her oath as a member of Congress, others noted her reference to "Marshall law."

Georgia voters in Greene’s district claim she helped facilitate the Capitol riot to disrupt certification of President Biden’s electoral college win.

Their lawsuit cited provisions under the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says members of Congress cannot engage “in insurrection or rebellion.”

A decision is expected by sometime next week
