Marjorie Taylor Greene to Hold Press Conference on the Treatment of January 6 Protesters
On December 3, 2021, the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene released a media advisory announcing a press conference that will address the treatment of January 6th detainees at the DC Jail.
The press conference will take place on December 7, 2021 and will coincide with the release of “Unusually Cruel: An Eyewitness Report From The DC Jail.” Greene will be accompanied by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, and Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar.
Greene has previously described the January 6 inmates as “political prisoners of war.”
Greene stressed that she did not support the storming of the Capitol, but she views the punishment meted out against the demonstrators as excessive: “No one has argued in defense of the Capitol riot, and I’ve always openly said I was very upset by it, but after seeing these men myself in the DC Jail, I can attest this abuse is true.”
So far, over 600 people have received charges for the January 6 protests.
In a piece published on November 4 at The Epoch Times, Congressman Louie Gohmert, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, Congressman Matt Gaetz, and Virginia Congressman Bob Good described the treatment of January 6 protestors as “tyrannical” and an act of “apparent political revenge and retaliation.”
In the concluding remark of this piece, the congressmen warned that “If we as a country continue to allow this abuse of power to unfold and turn this nation into a banana republic, there is nowhere left in the world to take refuge for lovers of liberty and freedom.”
