Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene recently took to Twitter to respond to former President Donald Trump’s announcement that he believes he will be arrested on Tuesday due to illegal leaks from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. Greene’s initial tweet accused the Department of Justice and the Manhattan DA of engaging in politics and destroying political opponents, stating that “this is what they do in communist(s) countries.” She went on to call on Republicans in Congress to subpoena these “communists” and defund their salaries and departments.

Later in the day, Greene responded to Trump’s call for protests by stating that Republicans don’t need to protest because the “communist Democrats” have sealed their own fate. She argued that the silent majority feels fear and anger towards the current regime, and that Democrats are driving these feelings with their own corrupt actions. According to Greene, this combination of fear and anger is the most powerful force leading up to an election.
Greene’s tweet comes in response to Trump’s Truth Social post which blew up social media Saturday morning. The post read:
“NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”
