Representative Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ge) filed “obvious false testimony” on the podium of a hearing aimed at determining whether her re-election campaign was unconstitutional, her opponents’ lawyers said in a lawsuit Friday.
Green was targeted by a small group of voters in her borough, which is outside Atlanta, who said she had violated a provision of the Fourteenth Amendment by calling for rebellion on January 6, 2021. The voters were represented by Freedom of Speech People, a nonprofit group operating on promoting fair elections.
For more than three hours on April 22, the radical congresswoman largely evaded questions from lawyers who asked about her earlier statements, providing little or no evidence to contradict the allegations against her.
Time and time again, Greene told her supporters that Donald Trump had won the 2020 presidential election in place of Joe Biden and encouraged them to participate in efforts to nullify the results, which culminated in the deadly attack on the Capitol Building.
Some of Green’s comments were included in videos or posts that have since been deleted from social media; She refused to acknowledge the legality of the videos shown to her in court.
She hid behind her alleged lack of memory, incredibly claiming during her testimony that she could not answer at least 80 of the petitioners’ questions because she did not “remember” or could not “remember,” the suit filed by Greene’s opponents read.

The lawyers argued in their filing that everything Green said on the platform should be considered unreliable.
At the time of her questioning, Green said she had no recollection of speaking to Trump or White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about the possibility of declaring martial law to secure Trump’s second term. Several days later, CNN published a text message from Greene on this specific topic.
Green reportedly texted Meadows, “In our private conversation with members only, many of them are saying the only way to save our republic is for Trump to demand Marshall Law. I don’t know about these things. I just wanted you to tell him.”
Whatever Greene meant by ‘I don’t know about these things’, she made it clear that she wanted to [the Chief of Staff] Tells [the President]“This idea,” the lawyers said in their file.
“Her failure to remember the last moments of the rebellion is no more credible than her other lost memories,” the letter read.
At another point during her testimony, Green was asked about an October 2020 interview in which she told a man in a “1776” T-shirt that if anyone took away your “liberties,” you should get them back “at the price of blood.”
“It is remarkable that Greene denied in her testimony that the proposal to obtain liberties” at the price of blood “was an invitation to violence,” the lawsuit reads.
In fact, Greene claimed in her position that she had never advocated violence.
Georgia state judge Charles Bodrot is expected to recommend whether Greene is constitutionally eligible to run for re-election in the coming days. Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, Brad Ravensburger – who has resisted the lies of Trump’s election – will make the final decision.
