Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) took to Twitter on Tuesday to affirm her unwavering support for former President Donald Trump, even in the face of potential incarceration.
With determination, she wrote, “I will still vote for Trump even if he’s in jail,” addressing her sizable following of 815,000.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Goes All in on Trump
Greene likened the recent indictments against Trump to communism, asserting that they represent an assault on Americans’ first amendment right to choose their preferred presidential candidate.
In her pointed words, “This is a communist attack on America’s first amendment to vote for who THE PEOPLE want for President by an attempt to take Trump off the ballots through a politically weaponized DOJ. People know exactly what this is.”
Echoing her tweet, an official statement from her office condemned the indictment as a political weapon.
Greene placed blame on Special Counsel Jack Smith, accusing him of misusing his authority to persecute not just President Trump, but his associates and, ultimately, the American populace.
She expressed conviction that these actions hold a clear motive—to meddle with the impending 2024 election.
Greene’s resolute stance on Trump’s indictment places her among a group of prominent Republicans who have rallied behind the former president.
Vivek Ramaswamy, a 2024 GOP hopeful, criticized the actors behind the indictments in an interview with BlazeTV, likening them to “an immune system [chasing] after a virus.” He emphasized the dangerous implications for both Trump and the future of the legal system, asserting that the situation reeks of politicization.
Trump’s former rival for the GOP nomination, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also joined the chorus of support.
He questioned via Twitter, “Apparently it is now a crime to make statements challenging election results if a prosecutor decides those statements aren’t true. So when should we expect indictments of the democrat politicians who falsely claimed Russia hacked the 2016 election?”
RNC Research, a twitter account managed by the Republican National Committee, has also poked fun at criticism of Trump. On Wednesday they shared a video compilation of top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and VP Kamala Harris suggesting Donald Trump did not legitimately win the 2016 election.
