Prosecutor Epically Zings MTG After She Says He Has 'As Many Conspiracy Theories As QAnon'

Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene's affinity for QAnon conspiracy theories is well documented and her attempts to deflect from a prosecutor's questions in a case brought by voters who seek to disqualify her from the ballot did not go over well.

Earlier, a judge declared Greene, who testified during an evidentiary hearing in a lawsuit that challenges her eligibility to hold office, a "hostile witness" when she tried to mention unproven allegations of voter fraud on the stand, further demonstrating her commitment to the "Big Lie" that the 2020 general election was stolen.

The judge agreed with Andrew Celli, an attorney representing the progressive advocacy group Free Speech for People, that Greene was adverse witness, saying that Celli had the right to cross examine her.

When challenged on her belief that Democratic President Joe Biden was not the rightful winner of the election, Greene accused Celli of beliving "as many conspiracy theories as QAnon."

What she didn't expect was for Celli to quickly respond to that assertion with, "Well, you believe in QAnon right?" a question that left her looking visibly flustered even as she denied believing in QAnon at all.

QAnon, whose believers allege Democrats are part of a Satan-worshipping, baby-eating global pedophile ring that conspired against former President Donald Trump during his time in office, counts Greene as one of its more vocal adherents.

Greene has claimed that there are links between former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and pedophilia and human sacrifice, once insisting that "Pizzagate," a debunked conspiracy theory targeting Democrats that claimed Clinton ran a pedophilia ring out of the basement of a pizza restaurant, was real.

Greene at one point also claimed that the death of John F. Kennedy Jr.–who was killed in a plane crash in 1999–was a "Clinton murder" because he was floated as a possible rival to her for a United States Senate election in New York.

But no evidence of Greene's faith in QAnon is as damning as her own admission that the eponymous "Q," the anonymous individual or individuals from whom many of these conspiracies originate, is "a patriot" and that they've provided adherents a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it."

Many have since called out Greene for lying on the stand.

Greene's testimony and defense have been under considerable scruiny from the hearing's onset.

Earlier, attorney James Bopp argued that her alignment with the far right’s attempts to overturn President Biden’s legitimate electoral victory in 2020 count as “legitimate political speech.”

In his opening statements, Bopp said that Greene’s efforts to deny Biden his victory are protected under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

He also insisted that Greene bears no responsibility for the insurrection of January 6, 2021 which took place when a mob of former President Trump’s supporters stormed the United States Capitol in a failed bid to overturn Biden's win.

The voters who are trying to disqualify Greene from the ballot want to use the disqualification clause, a provision in the Fourteenth Amendment, to disqualify Greene from running for political office again because of her alleged involvement in the attack against the Capitol.
